Afrika Botanicals will ensure sourcing the best quality African botanical, oil or butter for you. We will only source from producers who are ethical in their business dealings, compassionate about the environment they work in, and do not use child- or slave-labour in any capacity. That their harvests are sustainable and there is no degradation or pollution to the environment in which these plants grow. We will not sell any product from a plant or tree that is considered endangered.
We have selected a mere handful of plant types to bring Africa to the world, and prefer to supply in bulk quantities. We source our products from trusted and tested suppliers throughout Africa, and ensure that only the best quality products are distributed. We only include those products to which we can attest to – so our list on offer will only grow once we are satisfied with their quality and reliability of distribution.
Afrika Botanicals is proud to bring you the rich diversity of Africa’s plant kingdoms. In Sub-Saharan Africa alone, there are some 45 000 plant species found in varying biogeographical regions, and it is reckoned that Africa is home to at least 25% of the entire planet’s plant species.
We specialise in the supply of bulk material to those manufacturers in the cosmetic, pharmaceutical and allied industries.
Afrika Botanicals is your purveyor of choice.
Meet The Owner
After serving as a South African diplomat to Luanda, Libreville, and Sao Paulo in the 1990s, I joined up with the mining companies of Gold Fields of South Africa and Iscor in different communications disciplines.
For more than 20 years I have been engaged in most public relations, communications, and marketing disciplines – at all levels of government, the private sphere, and non-profit organisations.
I have operated in various sectors, including manufacturing, mining, IT, telecommunications, FMCG, non-governmental and non-profit organizations.
And just for goodwill – I dabbled in municipal politics for nearly a decade. I have founded, and currently own, Afrika Botanicals – Purveyor of Africa’s finest natural oils (www.afrikabotanicals.com),
and Barbet Communications – Public Relations Extraordinaire (www.barbet.co.za).
As a diplomat in Africa, I was privileged to have visited more than 36 countries on this continent and have an immense love for its botanical riches and deep respect for all her people. I am proudly African.
