Cleansing - Step 1 to beautiful skin

The miracle of skin is that it continues to regenerate every day. Over time, this natural ability to repair and renew itself slows, unable to keep up with the daily damage inflicted by exposure to UV in the sun, polluted air with hundreds of chemical particles, heavy metals and gases coming into contact with the epidermis, or surface layer. These cause damage that becomes increasingly visible over time – irritation, growing sensitivity, discolouration and dark marks, and ultimately premature ageing with lines, wrinkles and sagging facial contours.

Your first line of defence is a commitment to cleansing twice daily – in the morning to remove impurities that result from the skin’s own regeneration processes, and in the evening to remove all the harmful particles, dirt and makeup of the day.



African Extracts cleansing products are formulated with Rooibos extract, which is full of antioxidants proven to counter the effects of free radicals in the cells of our skin and other organs. Free radicals interfere with the skin’s own regeneration processes, which leads to a dull, discoloured, ageing complexion.


Depending on your skin type and preference, there are many cleansing options – each with selected plant extracts. Choose from cleansing wipes specific to your skin concern, convenient when you aren’t near water or want fresh, clean skin during the day. In our Classic range, choose from a milky lotion or a rinse-off face wash. In Purifying for problem, oily skins, there’s a cleansing bar, a face wash or a versatile 3-in-1 wash, scrub and mask – all with salicylic acid and baobab extract, specifically to reduce oiliness, pimples and spots. In the Advantage range for dry skin and anti-ageing, there’s a creamy cleanser that adds moisture. In our newest Radiance range, which reduces shine and targets uneven tone, there’s an advanced gel cleanser specifically formulated to help the skin ‘detox’ and deal with urban pollution.

If there’s one piece of advice from skin-care experts is that beautiful skin requires consistent care, because there are no quick fixes when the damage is done. That care begins with cleansing that gives your skin’s natural defences a fighting chance against a hostile world.
