SKIN FOOD: LAVISH – A forerunner in natural skincare

Grethe Swart (IG: @gretheswart)

As I embark on my journey of natural skincare, I found a precious gem; a product like no other that nurtures the skin instantaneously . . .LAVISH: smart and sassy natural goodness.

Priding themselves on delivering the purest, most natural ingredients available, LAVISH skincare is making headlines in the South African skincare industry.

To be completely honest, I have never tried any products that shows such effective results as the LAVISH range. After treating my very dry and often tired skin to their skincare range of absolute enchantment, my skin was supple, smooth and 100% refreshed throughout the day.


“The range was started at home by ladies passionate about health and natural products. Through the feedback and encouragement of family and friends who used and loved our natural homemade skincare products, the ‘natural’ next step was to make a business out of it”, says co-owner, Marlize Nel. After the help of experts assisting in the perfection of formulations and branding, LAVISH presents “a powerful and fun product range that promises to work for you and for the planet” she adds.
