In this blog, we hope to take you on a journey that revisits ancient South African traditions of skincare which explores the indigenous botanicals plants our country has to offer. So relax and enjoy the ride! You see, our story began two years ago (2020) when founder and CEO, Namhla Dotwana dreamt of a sacred field of African plants growing naturally. She explains that her late brother appeared in the dream and told her, “this is what you’ve been searching for”. From this dream, Namhla Collection was born as she discovered the benefits of the first plant, Imphepho (botanical name Helichrysum petiolare), harvested in the foothills of EGotyibeni, Tsolo, Eastern Cape.
Namhla Collection is rooted in a passion for African traditional plants and their healing benefits. We instinctively understood that nature gives us everything that our skin needs to thrive, and have been dedicated to shatter the misconception that natural skincare does not work. Our mission is to rekindle the old South African traditions of skincare with a dazzle of modernity. Telling the African stories through our products, restoring the dignity of predominantly marginalised African plants and reintroducing them into the modern market for every skin type, colour and gender, all to love and enjoy. Our vision is to become the first choice of organic, natural skincare, hair care and home spa culture products not just locally, but globally.
