Why I LOVE ‘Oh Lief’ products


When I fell pregnant with Aron, I was so determined to have a healthy pregnancy, and to me that meant not only with exercise and diet, but also with what I put on my body. I did a lot of research and found some disturbing information about products non- organic and tested on animals, I was disgusted and promised myself I will never use any non organic products again.

Its good to be healthy on the inside, and even better if you can be healthy on the outside too. I searched high and low for organic and natural products free from parben and harmful soaps and colourants, I came across ‘Oh lief ‘ and I never looked back. I’m obsessed with their products, made right here in South Africa, with 100% certified organic ingredients, Oh Lief is certainly my most favorite beauty product for myself and my little one.

Here is some more info on their products and why everyone should love them;

100 % Natural. 100% Good.

Founded in 2010 by sisters Christine Buchanan and Louiza Rademan, Oh-lief was born out of our love for nature and the desire to use products that would not harm our skin or the environment.

Our Story

Growing up in a household where green and organic were valued principles, Christine found herself in a predicament while pregnant with Liam, her first baby boy. In her quest to find a skin care range to use during her pregnancy, Christine was dissatisfied with the conventional body products on the market. Not satisfied with using, harmful products, Christine and Louiza set out to develop a new range of natural baby and body products, based on old family recipes.

The result was Oh-lief’s complete range of Natural Body products, made from 100% natural and organic, raw ingredients, sourced locally.
