African Bliss is a small family business started by the Conterio family in 2006, whose passion and goal has been to make totally natural soap - no artificial fragrances, preservatives, stabilisers or colourants. All of the soaps are coloured using only plants, herbs and spices. The beeswax and honey is directly harvested from hives and is not bleached - remaining in its natural form. Only pure essential oils are used, which results in a soap with a gentle fragrance and an equally gentle action on the skin. Each bar is made by hand, right down to the cutting and wrapping. The Conterios live and run their soap business from The Crags, Plettenberg Bay, in the beautiful Garden Route.
