Emerald Organic Spa uses Katavi Botanicals, and other organic ranges, a natural skincare range from Africa specifically formulated to counteract and improve the appearance of photo-aged skin.  (See below our list of  facials.)

Katavi is nature’s answer to environmental aging. 

The African extracts used in the formulations are ethically and sustainably sourced and rural communities benefit directly from their sale. The range is formulated with natural ingredients and contains no parabens or harmful chemical ingredients. Scientists agree that exposure to ultraviolet radiation is the primary cause of extrinsic aging, and although it is considered the leading cause, it is not the only cause. There are many other environmental factors that play a large part too.  These factors include pollution, toxins and chemicals, and our skins are subjected to them every day.


The climate in Africa is dry, sunny and harsh.  It’s a terrible combination for your skin.  It therefore made complete sense to the founders of the Katavi range that nature would provide an antidote for the ravages of the sun in Africa. Over thousands of years plants in Africa had to adapt their genetic make up to hostile, changing, and extremely harsh environmental conditions.  These conditions ranged from high temperatures with abundant rainfall, to low temperatures and no rainfall; extreme and constant ultraviolet radiation; and arid conditions.  To survive, they developed natural photo-protective abilities, unique compounds, potent phyto-chemicals and anti-oxidants and became adept at preserving nutrients.


Using traditional African folklore to guide our research, our scientists have uncovered some of nature’s most powerful anti-aging ingredients from these plants, including our signature ingredient, the cosmetic superfruit, Kigelia Africana.  Numerous scientific studies have confirmed their remarkable properties.  When applied topically, these same compounds – phyto-chemicals, anti-oxidants and nutrients have been proven extremely effective at visibly rejuvenating skins.  


The founders of Katavi Botanicals carefully selected a variety of these  remarkable extracts and through trial and error, found the perfect combinations that work together synergistically to address all factors that contribute to environmental aging. 


The Katavi skin care range is the result of years of research and is a truly unique collection of skin care products containing natural active extracts from indigenous African plants.
