South Africa is so full of incredible beauty brands and we want to spotlight a few of our favourites. Some of these brands have emerged from humble beginnings, but they’re quickly making their mark on the local and international markets. Others may have had more extravagant roots, and continue to put South Africa on the beauty map because of their consistent quality and results.
By supporting local brands, you help local entrepreneurs to grow and flourish and you keep our economy going.
6 LOCAL BEAUTY BRANDS WE LOVE:
One of the first things you’ll notice about this brand is their stunning packaging – clean, simple and exquisite. But, it goes much further than this. These products are made with the ethos of “slow beauty”, which is all about a natural and holistic approach. It’s about honouring your skin and embracing its natural ageing in the best, healthiest, most nurturing way possible.

With over 200 stores throughout South Africa, Sorbet has certainly made its mark as one of the top-notch beauty brands. They sell products for healthy skin, hair and body – just what we all need to feel and look great. Their exciting products smell gorgeous and include face masks, make-up, fragrances, gift sets, and more.
And as an added bonus, they have products that are specifically designed for men too.

Although Esse started as an organic brand, it has evolved into one that focuses on probiotic skincare – maintaining the natural microbiomes of your skin to act as armour against pollutants that cause skin damage, acne and ageing. Their ethos is “rewild your skin” and we love that they stand against harsh, harmful chemicals in favour of natural pre- and probiotics.
