Local Skincare brands

Spread the love

I’ve been very excited lately to see some amazing local skincare ranges popping up on my Instagram feed. I’m all about natural (where possible) and the packaging and branding of some of them are really gorgeous and they make me want to try them all.

I must admit, the one that I have been eyeing out the most is Skin Creamery.

Skin Creamery

The Skin Creamery vision is to instill a daily ritual of simple self-care, which translates into a loving appreciation for who you are, just as you are.

Throughout the years, Hannah has remained committed to using only the finest organic ingredients. This means each component in Skin Creamery products is more gentle on the skin and less likely to cause irritation. Every ingredient is selected for its unique healing qualities and ability to easily penetrate the skin.

With a small but carefully curated range, you won’t be overwhelmed by choice (a good thing!) and can focus on the essentials.

Lulu & Marula

Hot on it’s heels for top of my ‘wanting to try list’ is the lovely Lulu & Marula.

Lulu & Marula is a natural, ethically produced skin and body care collection developed in our beauty studio in Cape Town, South Africa. We create conscious, scientifically formulated skin care that works with your skin to balance and boost its natural processes for healthier, happier skin. 

Only pure botanical and plant-derived ingredients are used; none of our products contain any artificial colours, fragrances, parabens, petrochemicals, synthetics or other harmful ingredients. We don’t test on animals, and all our products are endorsed by Beauty Without Cruelty.

I love the idea of their bath & treatment oils and for those with beauty businesses, they also have a professional range!


LenKa is co-founded by a mother daughter team that wanted to create a range that would help people with problem skin.
All of their products are hand made in small personalised batches to guarantee optimal quality and freshness.

LenKa uses ingredients that:
– are of a high-quality and gentle on the skin
– are vegan i.e. are not tested on or derived from animals
– have low-comedogenic ratings i.e. they won’t cause pimples, blackheads, inflammation, or clog your pores are as natural as reasonably possible

Some of their products you might fancy:


SKOON. means ‘clean’, in Afrikaans. The essence of our brand is honest and pure, and it’s formulated with a clean, clear conscience. Kindness and consciousness are the guiding principles. 
The result: a range of products that’s kind to your skin, deeply respects the lives of all sentient beings (we don’t test on animals), and is light on the environment. We recycle and encourage re-cycling, in every way possible.

Skoon has an extensive range with the most delicious sounding scent combinations. You can shop by skin type on their website and they offer mini kits if you want to try out their range. Their prices are quite high compared to some of the others but sometimes when you find a product that works & suits your skin, the price doesn’t matter (and especially if you are supporting local!). I’ve heard their ‘Glow drops’ are amazing!

Here are some of their products:

Deity Skincare

Deity Skin incorporates organic herbs, essential oils and plant materials to create small-batch quantities of healing beauty products inspired by age-old remedies and ancient beauty rituals passed down from generations. They give rise to the practice of self-care as a daily beauty routine and motivates clean living.

We believe you deserve to know what you’re putting onto your skin every day, in the same way that you choose what you put into it.
