In the Natural Yogi spirit, as we use the products, we want to be conscious of soaking up the water and the exquisite scent of the Rose Geranium – which has been used for 1000’s of years as a skin beautifyer, bringing blood to the skin, lifting and tightening it also, or the rich, golden oil of the Pomegranate which is so rich in vitamin C, or the beautiful deep rose oil of the Rosehip which is a natural high source of vitamin A.
The Pink Facial Set
Pink, the colour of youth, of femininity, the red juice of berries – the rich blood of the Earth
What stands out about Natural Yogi’s face range – as with other Natural Yogi products, is that natural ingredients are not just filler ingredients – they are what the products are made of. The Pink Set draws in particular on pink and red flowers , berries and fruit and is designed to intervene the moment our skin starts to lose its youthful tone. The the all-natural ingredients are chosen for their qualities of
- Improving the tone and elasticity of our skin
- Encouraging cell regeneration
- Soaking moisture deep into the cells
- Being particularly effective in reducing hyperpigmentation and evening out skin tone – bringing through our inner glow
Aside for the skin offering of the anti-aging vitamins A, C and E – all from natural sources, the red and pink flowers and fruits in particular are also rich in anti-oxidents, polyphenols and anthocianins.
We want to be aware of the ancient Baobab tree on the vast dry plains of Africa whose roots penetrate deep into the earth to nourish its fruit, and how all of these plants draw in only the water that has been purified through the earth and the glorious light of the magnanimous sun.
What is in the colour?
Anthocyanins are polyphenols that are in fact the pink/purple pigment that are responsible for filtering and protecting the plant from UV rays. In our skins, the anthocyanins, the rich pigment, is not only an anti-oxidant, but has also been found to effectively undo sun damage and the negative effect that it can have on collagen production in athe skin – causing premature aging***.
*** Anthocyanins have been found to inhibit the MME enzyme in the skin which is over-produced with excessive sun exposure – and which in turn inhibits collagen production.
African Gorgeous Moisturising Spray
This is one of our most prized products – for the way that it delivers moisture so deeply into the cells and seals it in. It is based on the recipe of a simple moisturising solution that has been used since Victorian times – though here jazzed up with the wonder skin offerings of our African Fauna – Aloe, Geranium, Argan oil and Baobab oil – to offer an intensive moisturising solution with the most natural ingredients.
What do we need from a moisturiser – moisture deep into the cells and a layer of oil to stop the evaporation. Aloe Vera, with its rich vitamin and mineral content as well as geranium hydrosol penetrate deeply into the cells – whilst Argan, Baobab and Grapeseed Oil offer the lipid-enhancing, nourishing oil layer – leaving you with a plumped and glowing complexion. This spray also works wonders for dry, crisp hair.
Use it in the morning and evening as a moisturiser – or a few minutes before your regular moisturiser.
- Gentle, moisturising and plumping for all skin types
Baobab Cleansing Scrub/Mask
Our solution to totally natural, soap-free cleansing.
Supercharged with Vitamin C from the light pink Baobab Fruit, with Hibiscus, Oatmeal and Bentonite Clay, the Baobab Cleansing Scrub/Mask offers all-natural alternative to cleansing that can be used from every 2nd day. Pour a little onto your palm and mix with water, it turns a gorgeous and bright pink (that’s the HIbiscus with its natural AHA’s) – apply it to your face in circular motions. If you have time (maybe while you soak in the bath – or have an indulgent self-pamper moment then leave it on for longer to dry – to allow your skin to soak in the vitamin C and the clay to draw out impurities.

Though it wasn’t designed as a face product as such, there are those who swear by the Frankincense Butter for the face – as an uber rich face cream. It is made from only natural oils, waxes, with Vitamin A rich Beeswax which is anti-aging, healing and protective and Shea Butter which is also rich in Vitamin A but moreover filled with essential fatty acids that are so moisturising. And it contains the essential oil of Frankincense which is famed for its wonder skin anti-aging qualities – known to tighten and lift saggy skin and promote cellular growth.
Use it on your hands, face, or any part of your body that may need it. Wherever you use it it offers super rich and long-lasting nourishment . Since the cream does not contain water – it might be useful to use it in conjunction with an African Gorgeous Spray – or after a bath – so that it works to seal the moisture in the skin.
These gorgeous Calendula flowers which have been richly-infused through the oils of this butter have an exquisite anti-aging, softening and healing effect on the skin. Calendula has been shown to increase blood flow below the surface of the skin thus resulting in these effects. This butter will be greatly-helpful as a soothing, protective ultra-nourishing offering in the event of any flaky, sensitive or dry and weather-worn skin.
Like the Frankincense Butter, this product was not specifically developed for the face, but there are those that love its ultra-rich, protective offering. It contains Beeswax which is rich in anti-aging vitamin A and creates a protective layer against the elements as well as Shea Butter which is rich in essential fatty acids that are so moisturising.
Use after washing or after having applied African Gorgeous – to seal the moisture into the skin.
