The Natura range of natural cosmetics is created exclusively from natural African ingredients. Handmade in Namibia, Natura Africa products aim to convey a sense of Africa – pure, honest and down to Earth – into your home. The concept is to evoke the warm, relaxed feeling of your stay on the African continent once you are home again.
Natura Africa products are gifts from the African sun, and blessings from the African soil. Combining the best of local plant oils and ingredients, the aim is to make a 100% natural, 100% African range of products. All key ingredients are hand harvested by women in rural areas and locally cold-pressed, providing direct income to the communities involved.
With the company based in Swakopmund, Natura products stand for local value-creation during ALL stages of production – and in so doing, ensure that all economic benefit – from source to final product – is maintained within the country.
