Our Story

Down to Earth is a South African company offering natural ailment and skincare solutions through a therapeutic range of herbal ointments.

Down To Earth was founded in 1997 by Dr Rees as a small environmentally conscious company that used botanical raw ingredients, like the indigenous African Potato (Hypoxis hemerocallidea) from the rolling fields of KwaZulu Natal, to prepare high quality health products. The unique blend of plant actives in our products were skilfully formulated by Dr Rees, a qualified Medical Herbalist, and are based on his in-depth scientific findings on time tested plants with a long safe history. Not long thereafter Dr Rees took up an offer to lecture Herbal Medicine abroad and we continued to prepare and sell his effective topical ointments. As time progressed, new research and innovation emerged, and the exceptional herbal blends were applied to improved emulsions and preservatives. In 2014 we updated our brand and re-launched the products, remaining true to the ethos upon which the company was founded.

Our products are natural and deliver optimum healing through potent natural and organic ingredients. They contain no harmful chemicals like parabens, petrochemicals or artificial fragrances and are biodegradable. Our product packaging is recyclable. We are endorsed by Beauty Without Cruelty. We believe that using the carefully prepared formulations should be enjoyed as a gift from the Earth.

Down to Earth is the only brand that holistically cares for people with muscle and joint pain, auto-immune associated symptoms, skin conditions and abrasions, naturally. We intend to improve your confidence and lighten your mood!
