Launching Bakuchiol Immortelle

This little mini packs a punch! Since Bakuchiol started trending internationally in the natural skincare houses, we’ve been wanting to add it to our product range, so we are particularly excited about this one. It’s your inbetweener skin correcter that contains Bakuchiol – the new natural alternative to retinol (pronounced ba-koo-heel).

Cansa Approved Aftercare Serum - Pomegranate Seed Oil - Royale SA - Cape Town - 5

Full Circle – THE REASON (behind the CANSA Approved Aftercare Serum)

Stop right there and rethink the resolutions. I’ve got four super easy ones.

Stick with these and you’ll thank me in 20 years.
