 Mission Statement

Harmonizing body and nature with African herbal skincare for radiant, healthy skin.


Our Story

My journey to founding Violet Botanical Skincare began in 2014 while researching natural remedies to relieve my husband's and son's eczema. Slathering themselves in steroid creams filled with toxic petrochemicals and synthetics was not an option.

I reflected on my grandmother's homemade remedies, African remedies passed down from generation to generation. With peace of mind knowing what ingredients are used, I set out to make my own products. Guided by time-honored African formulations and ancestral plant-based ingredients, I handcrafted my first body butter, and Violet Botanical Skincare was born.

I source pure, distinctive and effective natural cosmetic butters and oils from women’s cooperatives in rural southern Africa, through our Botswana supplier. These ingredients are ethically and sustainably wild-harvested to support the harvester’s community.
