African beauty also known as A-Beauty is known for its rich, natural and potent ingredients that are grounded with so much ancestral knowledge. For many centuries Africans have believed and (still believe) in feeding the skin and its body with natural and organic ingredients which results in nourished, healthy and radiant skin.
AMAZI is one of the few skincare brands that has incorporated the raw ingredients found in African beauty such aloe vera, rooibos and kalahari melon-seed oil in its products to formulate clean, simple and highly effective skincare products to give your skin the best benefits.
Native to Southern Africa, the iconic baobab tree produces one of the most nourishing and rich oils. It is packed with nourishing omega-3 fatty acids, vitamin C and vitamin B making it ideal for people who have dry or sensitive skin. It is also great to help improve the function of your skin’s barrier.
Aloe vera is a naturally derived ingredient known for its soothing and anti-inflammatory properties. It has been used for centuries in African culture for its potent healing powers and is known as a miracle ingredient. Its benefits include calming, soothing and hydrating skin to treat breakouts and any irritation on the skin.
The plant is rich in vitamins such as vitamin A, vitamin C, vitamin D and vitamin E, as well as minerals likezinc and magnesium which are all great for the skin.
Marula oil is the hydrating and anti-inflammatory ingredient that all derms love for skin solutions. The mega multi-tasker is derived from the marula tree found in the tropical sub-Saharan.
It’s great for its super hydrating, moisturising and anti-inflammatory benefits, the best part is that it’s an oil that’s super lightweight and doesn’t clog up the pores, making it suitable for acne-prone skin.
Kalahari melon seed
The Kalahari Melon Seed is a super easy growing plant that grows in sandy soils in South Africa, Namibia, Botswana and other parts of Southern Africa. It is enriched with a high percentage of linoleic fatty acid to help moisturise the skin without adding excess oil to the skin.
It is best used as an oil especially as an oil cleanser to remove makeup and excess sebum to leave your skin clean and fresh.
Mongongo oil comes from the maketti tree found commonly in the Kalahari desert in sub-Saharan Africa. It’s a great emollient meaning it has great moisturising properties to protect the skin and improve the skin’s appearance for a more moisturised look.
The oil is high in polyunsaturated fatty acids and is great for helping reduce signs of premature ageing. It is also naturally high in zinc which is known to help protect the skin from sun damage.
