Zambesia Botanica Skin Care Products
Zambesia Botanica is a range of cosmetic products specially developed for people who may be prone to dermatitis, urticaria, eczema, psoriasis or for people with sensitive skin.
Generations of Africans have traditionally made preparations from the Kigelia Africana tree for consumption and application from the roots, bark and fruit. H.E. Hobbs have incorporated the tree fruit extract into a range of skincare products, which are particularly soothing for dry skin and which have proved helpful to a great many people.
About the Kigelia Africana tree
The trees occur naturally across sub-Saharan Africa. The bitter tasting fruit pods provide our dark brown/black extract. They hang from the branches and resemble sausages; hence these trees are also called “Sausage Trees”.
Mature fruit can grow to over 2 foot long and 10 kg in weight. Most indigenous wildlife eats the fruit. Hippos distribute the seeds along riverbanks while on high ground, rhino are the carriers.
Should you visit the Victoria Falls area on a safari holiday, you may be invited to sample the fruit. Further upstream stands the famous “Kazangula” sausage tree under which David Livingstone reputedly spent the night before continuing on to “discover” the falls and on which he carved his initials.
