Rain Africa produces bath, body & home products that are handcrafted with natural ingredients from ancient African origins. Our products are designed to reveal and enhance the true inner beauty of your body, mind, and spirit.
our personal care ethos
In a highly industrialised world, where our skins are exposed to many harmful and unseen elements, it is becoming increasingly more important to care for your body and mind and use the natural goodness and benefits that are so abundant on our planet.
True beauty comes from within – from a heart and attitude of giving. We believe in maintaining a healthy lifestyle while caring for your body and skin. Our Spa with Soul Concept encompasses de-stressing and relaxation to rejuvenate the mind and body. Rain provides the benefits of Spa style products, so that you can pamper yourself at leisure in your own home.
Our products are produced to benefit your skins, while caring for the well being of all people involved in crafting Rain products and caring for our planet.
Before any product reaches our shelves, it is not only tested for efficacy and safety, but subjected to a strict environmental audit.
The all-natural ingredients we use are harmless to the environment (and your skin), unlike the synthetic chemicals used by industrial manufacturers.
Wherever possible, our paper and fabric packaging is handmade, natural, biodegradable and recyclable.
We use natural fabrics such as wool, felt, linen, cotton and silk, all of which are biodegradable and free of formaldehyde.
Most of our fabrics are hand-woven and many are made from organic fibers produced without the use of pesticides or damaging industrial fertilizers.
We conserve energy and minimize our carbon emissions by sourcing local ingredients and raw materials and replacing machines with human hands. Seventy percent of our soaps are produced using gas as a heating source – a more efficient and cleaner source of energy than the electricity generated by coal-fired power stations.
None of our products are packaged under pressure so they emit no ozone-damaging CFCs.
Our Beauty Without Cruelty accreditation is your guarantee that no Rain product or any of its ingredients has been tested on animals. We test our products on ourselves!
The reason Rain came into existence was to provide jobs, skills and hope to people living in desperate poverty, particularly women and the disabled.
Our production cycle is deliberately low-tech and labour intensive. Our products and packaging are hand-made by trained crafters. We support small local suppliers and producers. Our wild ingredients are hand-harvested by women living in remote areas of Southern Africa where economic opportunities are almost non-existent.
We are the only Southern African beauty and body product company which is accredited by both Fair Trade in Africa and the international Fair Trade body in Europe.
at your service
Rain’s store staff are thoroughly trained to offer you personal advice so that you can enjoy the full benefits of our product range.
Following an initial course in basic skin anatomy, skin care, interpersonal communication and customer care, our staff attend monthly training sessions which cover new ingredients, product benefits, usages and potential side-effects so they are always well informed, up-to-date and able to answer your questions.
Indigenous plants used since antiquity by African healers are the heart and soul of the Rain range.
Our products include extracts and oils from Kalahari melons, Mongongo nuts, Marula fruit, Mafura seeds, the pods of the giant Baobab and the delicate fynbos of the Cape Floral Kingdom, all packed with antioxidants, moisturizers and nutrients to protect and replenish your skin.
These African botanicals are sustainably harvested in the wild by knowledgeable local women and blended with locally-grown natural ingredients to create luxuriously soft, delicately fragranced bath and body treats and treatments which deliver tangible results.
