Our Views, Mission & Values

 

We pledge to provide the most ecologically aware products and services possible while supporting sustainable, ethical, fair-trade and zero-waste practices. 

 

Our mission is to produce high performing, natural products and to utilise skin-friendly, active ingredients that treat the skin and provide a botanical luxurious experience. Philosophia Botanica’s ingredients are meticulously researched and tested for their healing properties, aromas and bio-compatibility with human skin. 

 

We also strongly believe in integrity and transparency. Communication with our customers and the community is honest, ethical and genuine. Products are formulated using premium plant and skin-friendly ingredients that are carefully sourced from around the world and manufactured locally in South Africa and Thailand.

 

By choosing to economically support ecologically responsible farmers and sustainable projects around the world, 

​such as the Women Co-ops in Ghana and India, ​we are helping to uplift remote and impoverished communities as we preserve and protect the earth and her treasures. 

 

Why does Philosophia Botanica stand alone in a market inundated with ‘natural’ and ‘organic’ ingredient claims and ‘remarkable results’ tag lines? Product labeling can be confusing, and choosing all-natural products can be equally as perplexing. The answer is simple! We have strong values and missions. We care about our planet and the future generations and this is why our ingredients are sourced from sustainable and Fair-Trade plantations

 

Our range, packaging and concepts are kept simple! We cares for the community and respect animal rights. 

 

Our products are vegan friendly and contain no animal derived ingredients. Philosophia Botanica stands strongly against animal testing!

 

Our products are packaged in re-usable and recyclable pure glass and are characteristically natural, recognised by their distinctive colors and botanical aromas.

We have strong views and  believe in:

 

NO mineral oils

NO artificial colors

NO petrochemicals

NO artificial fragrances

NO sodium lauryl sulphate

NO animal ingredients

NOT tested on animals

NO palm oil

YES to Recyclable packaging

We also believe that it is time to ditch the term 'Anti-Ageing'! Inspired by Helen Mirren and Allure Magazine we aim to remove the world 'Anti-Age' from all of our labels, product descriptions and website. Beauty is not just something for the young! We believe is time to promote healthy living and inner beauty over the fear of ageing.
