Afrigetics is a home-grown botanical company committed to simplifying good health through African medicinal plants. We bring you natural medicines that complement and enhance the body’s innate ability to heal itself, restoring balance without the use of synthetic drugs or chemicals.

What’s important to us:
– Caring for the Environment
We believe that the earth is under extreme strain because of unsustainable over-consumption of natural resources. That’s why we’re committed to sustainable wild harvesting and selective, eco-sensitive cultivation where necessary. This way we help safeguard the plant diversity of Southern Africa for the benefit of generations to come.

– Helping Develop Communities
We couldn’t make our products without the indigenous knowledge passed on to us. The communities who showed us the potential of these plants receive a share of the profits, which goes towards their own development initiatives.

– Following the Science
Many African scientists are producing research on the plant species of our continent. We follow these studies closely and choose only the botanicals with scientifically-proven health benefits. We also work with the CSIR (Council for Scientific and Industrial Research) to make sure our extracts work.

– Meeting International Standards
We produce herbal supplements of the highest quality. This means adhering to HACCP and ISO protocols and following the HPLC method of botanical identification.

– Behaving Ethically
We believe in the sacredness of all life and in our responsibility to protect, preserve and advance the botanical wisdom of Africa. We aim to conduct our business in an honest, fair and ethical way. Everything we do is an extension of these values.

Tag8 conceptualized and designed the Afrigetics brand. The Afrigetics brand is built on 3 pillars: Natural, science-based products from Africa.

The logo symbolizes ‘The Seed from the African earth’ and our passion and commitment to Africa and it’s potential. The circles of the posters symbolize the healing qualities of each botanical plant. Combining clean lines and soothing, relevant colors is the theme for our packaging as it best demonstrates the combination of science-based botanicals from Africa.
