Africology is the leading natural, eco-friendly and holistic spa and skincare company in South Africa, and only uses all natural ingredients that are bio-identical to your biology, effectively enhancing the integrity of your skin whilst simultaneously preventing premature aging.
I was recently invited to their Parkhurst branch to celebrate Spring – the universal month of renewal. Not only is the Parkhurst branch a beautiful, calming retail space in the middle of the bustling Parks suburbs, it also has three treatment rooms below street-level (one double treatment room if you want to enjoy being pampered with your friend or significant other). Once you step through the entry, all the stress and hustle simply fall away.
Africology founder and CEO Renchia Droganis welcomed guests and told us more about Africology’s newly launched Grape Stem Cell technology. In essence, Grape Stem Cell protects longevity of skin stem cells, delays ageing of essentials cells, and combats chronological aging. This new technology stimulates keratinocytes to secrete growth factors that can enhance the synthesis of collagen and elastin in the dermis.
“We are very excited about introducing this new technology into our treatment offerings, as it offers great benefits for our clients. Grapes are characterised by extremely high anthocyanin content. Anthocyanins are powerful antioxidants and free radical scavengers, enhanced by the interaction of special epigenetic factors and metabolites to help protect the skin and epidermal stem cells from UV radiation and premature photo-aging,” explains Renchia.
Aside from receiving a Grape Stem Cell spray, each guest also received a newly launched Africology Diffuser (available in Coffee & Rose and Neroli).
“At Africology we focus on uplifting the mind and body in a positive way, and wanted all our guest to experience the vibrancy of Spring and the renewal that comes with it.”
Africology spas can be found at the Maslow Hotel in Sandton, the Boardwalk Hotel in PE, the Zone in Rosebank and EXEC|Care in Dunkeld, as well as in Parkhurst.
