Kupanda has launched a new range of exfoliants developed from upcycling byproducts of the Cypriot company’s oil production activities.
Salala Baobab Exfoliant 500 and Salala Baobab Exfoliant 1000 are produced from the baobab ‘Tree of Life’, which holds cultural and ecological significance across the African savannah.
A fully upcyclable fruit, the baobab seeds are used to produce Moyo Baobab Oil Refined, and the seed press-cake by-product is then used to produce Salala Baobab Exfoliant.
Meanwhile, Naksia Kalahari Melon Exfoliant 500 and Nakisa Kalahari Melon Exfoliant 1000 are produced from the nourishing Kalahari melon fruit, which is renowned for sustenance in Africa’s torrid heat.
The Kalahari melon seeds are primarily used to produce Elula Kalahari Melon Oil Refined, and the seed press-cake (by-product) is subsequently processed into Nakisa Kalahari Melon Exfoliant.
Kupanda is a specialist provider of esoteric botanical-based extracts of African origin, with a product portfolio consisting of active oils, exfoliants and powders for pertinent cosmetics applications.
“We are thrilled to launch our range of natural exfoliants – the only company to offer such products,” said managing director Imran Moten.
“The high quality, traceable and up-cycled raw materials demonstrates our commitment to introduce interesting and sustainable ingredients, which originate from the African continent, and are produced in accredited European facilities, for the international cosmetics industry,” he added.
