about africabotanika

The notion of ‘Responsible & Respectful luxury’ is a concept we strive to adhere to throughout our manufacturing, packaging and distribution process.

OUR STORY

At the core of AfricaBotaniKa, at the very heart of this project is a team… like isolated little terpenes we floated until we were blended together on a journey to showcase cannabis’s complex strain profiles and nature’s related terpenes and display them together – in all their glory. – as they have never been displayed before.

By taking advantage of and utilising the most modern plant molecular isolation and extraction technologies available we are grateful to work with meticulously extracted, high quality, all-natural ingredients that are alive to interact with the skin of every individual to create an exclusive bouquet of aromas and delightfully delicate scents as distinct as the person.

We don’t know how our head of product development and in-house perfumist would feel about the title; “Botanical Fragrance engineer’ – but we are very proud of her, every team member, and our range of Cannabis-inspired fragrances.

OUR WHY?

An artisanal perfumery-house on a mission to pay tribute and bring long-overdue recognition to the activists, freedom fighters and alternative sub-culture that managed to beat the system by standing-up for the truth about cannabis and it’s various beneficial qualities. Showing unrelenting patience and faith that good will eventually triumph over lies. And in so doing, proving that when one acts from a position of Love, based in objective truth – that truth WILL eventually set you free…

At long-last the cannabis plant has been rightfully re-categorised as the medicinal and commercial cultivar it has always been.

Strain-hunters, botanists and natural healers have quietly – throughout modern history been genetically cross-breeding land-race / indigenous strains from across the world with each other in order to create strains with very specific purposes and uses in mind. Working tirelessly to stabilise the genetics, while simultaneously enhancing their cultivation techniques to derive as much of the desired traits from each plant as possible – many of them driven by nothing but passion… Many succeeded – creating a plethora of new exotic cannabis strains each with a distinct and pungent smell, look and purpose.

Thanks to their brave work we are now able to blend fragrances – which have never before been available… Opening up new symphonies of scent-ual possibilities unique to the cannabis plant and it’s many varieties.

The possibilities are truly endless and we look forward to this journey through the buds.

HOW DO WE DO THIS?

Using only the finest quality, critically extracted, plant-derived ingredients and essential oils we mimic specific cannabis strain profiles very closely and are the first in Africa to infuse the strain profile of cannabis and adhering strictly to it.– guaranteed at a minimum of 35% – ensuring that the strain and specific terpenes make up the bulk of the ingredients used to create the fragrance.

As the buds cure their compositions evolve and become more complex as they age. By utilising and balancing a simple terpene categorisation principle commonly referred to as the fragrance -‘notes’ this curing-process too is mimicked just on a much smaller scale. As your skin chemically collaborates with our perfume it causes reactions allowing the scent to change and evolve in a process known as ‘scent-sequencing’ keeping you refreshed and high throughout the day.

We package this revolution in scent in living glass jars with bio-photonic properties. It’s ultra-violet colour captures the energy of light rays to invigorate and vitalize natural ingredients preserving the contents for extended periods of time, ensuring longevity and higher quality of natural ingredient properties and performance. For this we use Bio-photonic glass from MIRON. Adding a much greater benefit as a more environmentally sustainable alternative – besides it’s bio-photonic benefits the material is also thicker and more robust yet still completely bio-degradable and manufactured according to the strictest environmentally friendly practices.
