Philosophia Botanica was established in Cape Town and is currently available at various retailers and spas in South Africa, Italy, England, France. The Philosophia Botanica range was born with products and rituals inspired by a fusion of adaptogenic herbs, the Cape indigenous flora, the wilderness of the African plants, the magnificent nature surrounding the Atlantic ocean, as well as our Founder's passion for wellness, beauty and eastern therapeutic treatments.
The Philosophia Botanica skincare is sourced from a variety of ecological sources around the Mediterranean, African and Asian regions. Each source promotes traditional plant-based knowledge, represents an inspiring story of organic agriculture, sustainability, economic upliftment, and wherever possible the preservation of botanical culture.
We also believe that botanical treasures like essential oils and flower essences can have a significant positive influence on our mental, physical and soul wellness as well as on the economic health of small communities throughout the world.
Our adaptogen skincare line is designed to nourish and protect your skin. Our products are infused with adaptogens, which are known for their skin-toning properties. Adaptogens help reduce the effects of stress on the skin, delivering nutritive benefits that help keep your skin healthy and balanced. Our philosophy is rooted in Chinese Herbal Medicine, and we believe that our products offer both preventative and protective qualities for your skin.
We invite you to discover Philosophia Botanica Masterclasses and exclusive events.
Our Founder has captured the essence of thousands of years of Chinese wisdom and eastern philosophies into gentle yet powerful self-care rituals.
We invite you to join us and to take away simple yet powerful practices to transform your daily routines into nourishing rituals. We invite you to pause, slow down, restore and reconnect with your beautiful self at one of our exclusive international Masterclasses.
We ditched the term “anti-aging” (and anything that is anti really, except for our antioxidant ingredients!) in 2017. Here at Philosophia Botanica we strongly believe that it’s time to get on board with embracing healthy aging and we actively stand up against the idea that the aging process is the enemy in our pursuit of beauty and wellness.
We celebrate the beauty of aging with a healthy body and hydrated skin. Our pledge to you? All our ingredients are 100% natural and none of the products contain parabens, artificial colors, mineral oils, silicone or any animal raw materials. We are so against animal testing!
The raw materials are rigorously selected and combined for optimum effectiveness on the skin
and each product contains botanical plant(s) and 100% pure oils formulated by us in either Cape Town or London (and soon in Italy too).
ADAPTOGENS + WELLNESS
We believe that good skin comes from within, which is why we've introduced adaptogens and medicinal mushrooms such as Reishi and Lion's Mane to our range. Adaptogens are powerful herbs that normalize the adrenal system and help to reduce the effects of stress on the body.
These incredible herbs can help the skin by regulating the adrenal system and promoting a healthy response to stress.
