Map of AfricaIncluded in each of our products are powerful indigenous African plants and herbs that survive the harsh African conditions. They are known to deliver concentrated and potent healing abilities. While providing you with these medicinal plants, as a South African company, we hope to have a positive impact on our local communities and economies. Find out more about the benefits of our ingredients.

Pregnant LadyIf you are concerned about the topical application of essential oils while pregnant, rest assured. The total amount of essential oils used in our products is diluted below 1%. Our products are considered safe to use during pregnancy, however it is always a good idea to consult your doctor during this important time in your life. Find out more under FAQ.

PH LevelsThe epidermis is slightly acidic and if the natural pH of your skin is disrupted it becomes dehydrated, irritated and prone to infection. Since we promote health and wellness, all Down to Earth products are pH balanced for healthy and normal skin at around pH 5.5.

RecyclingOur products are freely and rapidly biodegradable and our packaging is recyclable. Our plastic jars and tubes are considered safe. They do not leach harmful chemicals and have high resistance to solvents. Our cartons are made of recyclable paper. All material complies with ECOCERT packaging material regulations. Find out more under FAQ.

Six monthsOur products do not contain harmful preservatives to extend the expiry date. We recommend that you use your Down to Earth products within 6 months after opening. The shelf life of clean, natural products generally falls within 18 to 24 months from production, and our stability tests confirm that for all our products.
