A Deep Love for Africa
Driven by a passion for the culture and bushveld of Africa, our business goes beyond extracting and distributing essential natural oils. It is our intention to protect the environment and nurture the local people while sharing traditional African wisdom with the world.
Engaging the Community
To achieve our aims we partner with local communities to create jobs and opportunities for the people who harvest our raw products. From the start, traditional leaders are included to ensure the local heritage and practices are protected.
For example, in the South African provinces of Limpopo and Mpumalanga, local communities harvest Marula fruit. The harvesting is predominantly carried out by women who use the Marula to prepare their traditional beer – an important part of their heritage. By selling the marula stones (a natural by-product of the beer-making process) to Ramified Organics, these women are able to generate additional income for their communities.
This is how we turn ‘waste’ into a product that benefits everyone – from the women who harvest the raw products down to the end-user of a high-grade cosmetic product.
