Help with hand soap brand?

Silly question: There was a lovely liquid hand wash in nearly all of the restaurant and winery restrooms I visited in Cape Town and Stellenbosch. The bottle is dark brown/amber and the brand name is in script. I can't for the life of me remember the name (or figure out why I didn't take a picture of the bottle since I liked the scent so much!). Any guesses as to what it might be? I'd love to order some if it's available here in the States.

TIA!

I know how frustrating it can be when you want to purchase something you've loved. Maybe email one of the restaurants or wineries and ask them?

We use Afriearth products. They are based in Cape Town and the bottle matches your description. See the link below. Could this be it?

I have a feeling - well, to be truthful, a more of a shot in the dark than anything else - that the washrooms had a rooibos based handwash such as the ones sold to restaurants and hotels on this website karoolavender.co.za/listings/rooibos_gifts

Although rooibos tea is readily available in supermarkets here in the UK, rooibos based body products are not that common and we normally buy our rooibos based body products from Red Cedar in Wupperthal http://www.redcedar.co.za/products.aspx

I have no idea as to how easy it is get rooibos based body products in the US, but a quick search on Google brought up this site https://www.inheritanceskincare.com/about-us

Of course, all of this info is only relevant if I am right about what the restaurants and hotels that you have been to use in their washrooms.

Or, of course, it could be a Afriearth product ........

I would say Afriearth or Pure, but more likely to be Afriearth

Thanks, all! I believe it is AfriEarth...which (of course) is not available for retail purchase here in the States. Guess I'll have to come back soon! :)

Could it be Africology ? I have quite a few of their products and love them. Try googling it and see if it’s that.

Sorry. Off topic.

giantgrl - you’re back! You didn’t tell us about your trip! I know there were some last minute hiccups but I’ve been wondering how it went.

Cbir !! Hello it was fabulous!! Absolutely loved Cape Town 3 Days wasn’t enough , Cape Cadogan was a great hotel and I loved the location. Did the Hop on hop off bus, the new museum- great , private tour of Chapman’s peak drive and of course the penguins at Simons town. Cheetah Plains was great , very rustic and lovely staff. I was upgraded to the private villa at Tinga Lodge which I loved I really liked that part of Kruger we even went into the public part of Kruger as we had a hard time finding male lions this trip but I had epic sightings I just need to see a Cheetah and my life will be complete!! Yes I’m going back again I’m officially addicted to Africa now just like you said 😀
