Bulbine frutescens (L.) Willd is a succulent plant belonging to the family of Asphodelaceae and is widespread in southern Africa.


Indigenous people of southern Africa have been familiar with this plant for generations and traditional healers use it for medicinal purposes. The leaves contain a gel that is used as an effective remedy for various topical skin and hair conditions such as burns, wounds, skin rashes, eczema, insect bites, etc.


The gel is also known to relieve discomfort immediately, has instant anti-itching and redness reducing effects, and expedites the skin recovery process. A tea infusion prepared from the leaves is also known to be helpful against colds, coughs, diarrhea and other infections.


Bulbine frutescens is a unique plant with incredible healing, soothing and moisturising qualities.

Bulbine frutescens protects dry and sensitive skin and helps increase skin hydration and elasticity.

Bulbine frutescens enables the restoration of skin barrier function, reducing sensitisation and improving moisture retention.
