Discover the essence of Africa with the ELLI beauty range. The therapeutic properties and unique fragrances of the African flora were the inspiration for the 100% organic products.
The ELLI journey started when Elmarie de Bruyn planted a herb-garden for HERBS-APLENTY in the Cape, Africa. Her passion for natural botanicals supported by her extensive knowledge of their potential and properties lead to the creation of the ELLI range . The first formulation was tested in 1995 and the ELLI range was born.

That simple basic question drives the ELLI philosophy which we apply to all ELLI production and marketing.
