Our name evokes an earthfulness of body, mind and spirit. Translated, it means ‘the earth’ or ‘the lands’ of Africa.
The mystique of Africa gets under your skin. The rumble of thunder over savanna lands, the smell of rain on parched plains, the humbling introspection invoked by a bare-faced wilderness.
All our botanical ingredients are uniquely African. Many are ancient tribal remedies. Using these in potent formulations, underpinned by scientific rigor, we’ve amplified their skincare benefits.
Ethos & Essence
We’ve worn our trekking heels thin, seeking out unique African botanicals.
For decades, we’ve worked with growers in remote regions: looking at what we can make happen, together.
Authenticity, credibility and integrity are the golden thread.
Unstintingly committed to biodiversity, our brand fosters a healthy exchange – for the wellbeing of our farmers, as well as for our customers who are nourished by our products, treatments and experiences.
A FairTrade brand committed to uplifting rural producers.
Terres d’Afrique follows the principles of the Nagoya Protocol: “Fair and equitable sharing of benefits arising from the utilisation of genetic resources, contributes to the conservation and sustainable use of biodiversity.”
Protection of biodiversity is key, as is the use of recyclable packaging and biodegradable ingredients to minimise our carbon footprint.
What matters to us? Benefit sharing, FairTrade, the empowerment of African women, respect for indigenous intellectual property, sustainable harvesting, and farming organically without depleting resources or impacting air and water quality.
Scientific rigor maximises the efficacy of plant-based indigenous traditional elixirs to deliver a sophisticated luxury range that is satisfyingly benefit-driven, restoring and protecting the natural balance of the skin.
It’s in the way we formulate: a combination of a pH similar to the skin’s pH and high levels of stable Omegas (particularly Omega 3), together with potent antioxidants, makes Terres d’Afrique products extremely efficient in anti-ageing and maintaining the skin’s equilibrium.
Only a modern scientific approach can provide assurance that the end product is certified safe and well-balanced.
