Ancestral Beauty From the continent of humankindness.
We’re talking beauty secrets that for centuries have been handed down through generations of African tradition. Now revived and refined, to nourish, replenish and bring you the cleanest, kindest beauty on Earth. SKOON. is beauty that gives back. Wherever possible, our lab on a farm near Cape Town chooses potent natural ingredients harvested sustainably in Africa. Non-toxic, effective, clinically proven ingredients that are both ancient and incredibly modern - and boosted by science-led thinking in formulating.
As we grow our range, we’re expanding our raw ingredient sources to include more African-harvested ancestral beauty game-changers. Not just brilliant for your skin – but also really good to know we’re providing a reliable source of income for small farmers.
Ultra-powerful actives include unique South African species – like Rooibos, Honeybush, Buchu and Baobab – all from South Africa’s plant paradise, and well known for heightened antioxidant concentration. We combine these and other African ingredients, like Nkuto Butter from Ghana and wild harvested Rosehips from Lesotho, with Swiss and French phyto-compounds, for highly effective, holistic skincare.
We’re a small, strong, women-led South African team, driving hard to offer more conscious choices to people who want to push this world forward.
As an indie brand with hard-earned sustainability credentials, we love exploring and finding new pathways in formulating. Fortunately, we don’t have to go too far, though! The Cape Floral Kingdom is in our backyard and north of us, we have all of Africa’s richest natural gifts to pick and choose from.
We don’t believe in a one-size-fits-all approach. We do believe in an effective, flexible range that makes you feel happy in your own healthy, good feeling skin.
Polished beauty is clean and kind.
The words ‘non-toxic’ and ‘sustainable’ apply not just to formulating, but also to our thinking and actions. Beyond skin, it’s about caring for your conscience.
This global accreditation is your guarantee that nothing we touch will ever be tested on animals - also ensuring that our supply chain adheres to the same standards we do.
1% for the Planet
We are committing to donating the equivalent of 1% of our gross sales to environmental non-profits.
The Baobab Foundation
The Baobab Foundation in South Africa’s Limpopo Province is our elected beneficiary. The financial support helps the community of growers – mainly women – and their families, by planting more baobab trees, contributing to the building of a new pre-school and helping to provide books for early education learning. Every time you buy SKOON., you’re helping to make a meaningful contribution.
Beyond eco-friendly formulas and packaging, we’re committed to a path that not only does no harm, but also gives back.
Better, more sustainable packaging and ingredients - being mindful that ‘clean’ applies to our conscience. Doing no harm to Earth, people or animals.
Means clinically proven results. Science-led thinking in our lab in the Cape amplifies the potency of our natural, non-toxic ingredients.
