Discover the essence of Africa with the Elli beauty range. The therapeutic properties and unique fragrances of the African flora were the inspiration for the 100% organic Elli products.
The Elli journey started when Elmarie de Bruyn planted a herb-garden for Herbs-Aplenty in the Cape, Africa. Her passion for natural botanicals supported by her extensive knowledge of their potential and properties lead to the creation of the Elli range. The first formulation was tested in 1995 and the Elli range was born. Does nature approve? That simple, basic question drives the Elli philosophy which we apply to all Elli production and marketing. We only use certified organic ingredients. We grow, harvest and process our essential oil ingredients on our farm for total quality control from plant to bottle. We source our carrier ingredients from farming communities in Africa with organic certification. Our farm factory is managed by a family team, ensuring reliability, continuity, quality and sustainability. We combine years of research, a wealth of expertise and unbridled passion to create effective Natural and Organic products.
WHY ORGANIC?We live on an organic farm. Our herbs and oils are organic certified. Our farming motto is : ‘does nature approve’ Little wonder that we wanted our Elli range to be organic. While we are organic supporters, we are the first to admit that ORGANIC is not unconditionally equal to quality – NO, it is not. However, apart from the ideological concerns, Organic certification is a guarantee that the ingredients were grown and processed free from pesticides and synthetic fertilisers - AND the processes were audited : no small fete. Organic certification at least sets the table for a marvelous product if enough care is taken with the formulation -when the intrinsic attributes of the organic ingredients are cleverly matched with the expectation of the product and with the sophisticated natural systems of your skin to care for and mend itself.
