Flying the South African flag high in local Skincare.

A country celebrated for its diversity among ethnicity, its appreciation of skin colours and its variety thereof. Only in South Africa will you find the world’s people right at your doorstep and where skin diversity is valued and admired by many. Heritage Month forces us to recognise our nation and what makes it unique. The past year and a half has shown us that supporting local businesses, brands and people is what we call the spirit of ubuntu among our nation. September 24th marks Heritage Day – in light of this, an inspiring South African tale of local skincare is one we think is worth sharing.

SKIN functional, a local skincare brand that is leading the skincare game at the moment, never shys away from being a proudly South African brand that is lovingly created and manufactured on our home soil. Born out of pure passion for skincare and a personal responsibility to help others, the brand attributes its appetite for skin education and honourable skincare to its strong sense of heritage, commitment to its customers and always being a vocal and inclusive brand.

Owned by South Africans who employ and have a diverse team of South Africans, this skincare brand is committed to skin, and providing people with the right tools to ensure they have the best skin they can possibly achieve. “Heritage Day means that we take a moment to remember where we have come from, remembering our roots, foundation and our core values. Heritage Day is about being proud of everything that we stand for and striving to be the best version of ourselves - every day. It’s a time to stop and reflect. At SKIN functional we remain true to our core values of Authenticity, Integrity, Truthfulness and Transparency, which are integral components in our day-to-day operations. The team behind SKIN functional represent our diverse country and they live and breathe these core values,” says Kevin Khosa Customer Service Champion.

First established in 2016, the skincare brand has expanded its presence across the African continent into Namibia, Botswana, Zambia, Zimbabwe, Mozambique and Mauritius with a most recent expansion into parts of Europe. Its incredible product range and mandate to share skintelligence (skin intelligence) is what distinguishes the brand in the market, with an objective to demystify skincare jargon and misinformation to deliver honorable skintelligence. Equipped with skintelligence, you can confidently adapt your skincare program to your ever-changing skin needs.

As the world becomes wiser, so does its customers. SKIN functional places priority on being a vegan and sustainable brand that provides cruelty-free beauty and skincare products that respects its environment, animals and people.

“SKIN functional understands the needs of our customer and we are always listening to every single bit of feedback. We are eternally grateful to every single customer who has built SKIN functional to what it is today and we will always be here for you in every step of your skin journey”, concludes Khosa.
