Zuplex Botanicals is a South African based manufacturer of clinically tested active extracts using innovative technologies. Zuplex is vertically integrated and offers services from cultivation to the final preparation of extracts.
Zuplex is built on the enormous plant biodiversity which is an important South African resource. The country is home to almost 25% of the world's plant species, many of which have unique qualities and chemical profiles. However, only a few species are known or traded internationally, and the bulk of current exports receive low value-addition and only primary processing prior to export. Zuplex is linked to an established cultivation site owned by a community trust which is also a significant shareholder in Zuplex.
Our market focus is primarily on topical and ingestible cosmetic extracts but we do research and product development in the nutrition and flavour sectors.
Full regulatory compliance, with the objective of environmental sustainability and protection of South Africa's plant diversity, is core to our business.
