Fijnbos Facial Essence + Cape Cactus Jelly

R804 30ml + 50ml

This duo of unique local products brings the magical medicinal properties of Fynbos to your skincare table.

The 100% natural Cape Floral Facial Essence contains six oils steam-distilled from the Cape Floral Kingdom. These Fynbos oils have unique medicinal properties, and will restore suppleness, radiance and wellbeing to skin. They’re expertly blended with wild-harvested African Superfruit oils – the age-old beauty secrets of African women. Marula, Mongongo, Baobab and Passion fruit oils are rich in linoleic and oleic fatty acids, plus Vitamin C and E, to smooth fine lines and add luminosity and radiance to skin.

The Cape Cactus Jelly combines these herbaceous Fynbos oils with wild-harvested Cape Aloe Ferox leaf gel, which is filled with natural bio-protective properties. Deeply soothing, it offers a cell-energising and skin-hydrating boost.

Cape May is a fragrant shrub with medicinal, skin-restorative properties.

Cape Chamomile is a natural anti-inflammatory that instils a sense of wellbeing to both the skin and the psyche.

Cape Rose Geranium, with its intense rosy-sweet aroma, is excellent for restoring radiance, suppleness and balance to all skin conditions.

Cape Clary Sage is a natural phyto-hormone that triggers remarkable firming of the skin.

Cape Snowbush is a restorative astringent that helps to prevent tissue degeneration and may accelerate skin healing.

African Wormwood, from the Cederberg mountains, acts as a natural analgesic and has natural antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties to help heal skin irritations.


Wild-harvested African superfruit oils – Mongongo nut oil from the Kalahari, Marula and Baobab fruit oils from the bushveld – are rich in essential fatty acids to nourish and protect skin from the harsh African climate.

Grapeseed and Passion Fruit oils from the Western Cape are light and easily absorbed. They help skin to appear smooth, luminous and radiant.


Cape Aloe Ferox offers skin an energising moisture boost. The cool gel, extracted from the core of the leaf, is rich in polysaccharides, amino acids and minerals, and has superior antiseptic and anti-inflammatory properties. It instantly soothes and repairs damaged skin tissue, and visibly improves the hydration levels of the skin.

Apply the Cape Cactus Jelly twice daily to cleansed skin. Once absorbed, apply the Facial Essence and massage it lightly into the skin. With every application, inhale the intense herbaceous aromas.

What other customers say

My absolute favourite

Shehaam - Cape Town

I love how easily the Cactus Jelly absorbs into my skin, instantly hydrating it. After two minutes, I massage in the Facial Essence, which makes my skin look and feel radiant. I apply them in the morning and come afternoon, my skin still feels hydrated. Best of all, my pigmentation marks have lightened as well.
