Our Sustainable Palm Oil
All Africology palm oil is sourced from sustainable and ethical resources under the auspices of RSPO and ISEAL. We use it in place of animal-derived fats to safely emulsify and thicken our soaps, both liquid and solid.
Research on the herbal remedies used in the past has led to the discovery of malaria treatments that have saved millions of lives. The powdered bark of the cinchona tree was used to treat malaria, initially in South America and later across the globe. Quinine was first isolated from cinchona tree bark in 1820, and the pure compound quickly demonstrated greater potency than the hot infusions of the bark. With the availability of the pure compound, appropriate dosage could be established and the first modern chemotherapeutic agent against malaria was born (1,2).
It comes with a great knowing that the lock down prescribed by President Ramaphosa is the right thing to do. As a family we support these efforts and will be closing operations from COB Thursday 26th March – 16th April therefore giving our staff the right to be in their homes (with full pay) and so collectively we can flatten the curve.
What a struggle it was over the last few years to export into Tanzania. From the TFDA guidelines and implementation cost to current changes. Before I continue, do take note the TFDA guidelines are now only for pharmaceutical, and raw materials & not amenities and spa products. Bureau Veritas was awarded the contract to ensure the products entering the country are safe and tested by their own laboratories. This year we have done all our product testing with Bureau Veritas and obtained our Letter of Conformity: Route B Clearance.
All over the world, there’s an increasing urgency to protect our planet, just like we safeguard the biology of our bodies; and more and more companies are using aromatherapy oils instead of perfumes in their skincare ranges. Manufacturers of products that are aligned with the safety rules of IFRA (the International Fragrance Association) and the EU are well aware that certain oils are rejected by IFRA from use in personal care products.
The Courage To Be Wholly Yourself
Join our revolution as we empower women to make skincare and beauty choices that will support our biology. We have been proud industry activists since our inception in the early 2000s, advocating ethical and safe ingredient selections. We carefully research every ingredient we use, and avoid all harsh chemicals with clear links to cancer and disease. Each ingredient is tested for safety and efficacy on human volunteers, and we only use organically harvested and preserved ingredients. We constantly challenge other companies in the skincare, spa and beauty industry to do the same. If we wouldn’t put it in our bodies, we would never do the same to you.
Africology is the proud contributor of Queen for a Day, and we are privileged to work with Reach for a Dream in making magical days like this possible. We love having the girls at our Maslow spa, and to see their bravery and joy. We are honoured to remind them that they are beautiful, and that no matter how their medication or illness changes them, they are all queens.
