Our Story

Our Founder

As an internationally trained health practitioner in preventive and clinical medicine, our founder, Rachel Nye sought to develop an entirely clean, science-driven botanical skin care line. After three years of research and development, BOTANē was born. With knowledge and practice of the body’s physiology, our professional and retail products complement the body’s remarkable healing processes. Our Founder has made it her professional quest to utilise the scientific method and support global sustainable research on plants for better skin health.

BOTANē Skin Actives stand against unhealthy chemicals for our body and environment. With South Africa being one of the most biodiverse countries in the world, we believe in protecting our incredibly precious environment and health of ecosystems for generations to come. Hugging plants has its benefits – all those natural extracts and botanicals are chock-full of flavonoids, anthocyanins, polyphenols and other goodies for fresh, healthy skin. Science even agrees. We’ve jam-packed all this happiness into each bottle.


Skin health is a cumulative exchange of extrinsic and intrinsic nutrition, healthy, effective products and a catalyst for skin transformation. We think it shouldn’t require a PhD in plant medicine to understand the basics and reap the benefits of having healthy skin. We’ve already done your science homework for you -freshly extracted botanicals, plant oils, amino acids, peptides, antioxidants just to name a few. Oh and sleep, exercise, herbal teas, heaps of veggies and fresh juices wouldn’t hurt either! Don’t worry, we’ll coach you through it. Learn more about our transformative health practices here
