Knowledge of the healing powers of South Africa's abundant flora has been passed down through generations of traditional health care practitioners for centuries. Although few products derived from these botanical specimens are registered treatments, there is a definite place for them on retail shelves stocking complementary medicines and cosmetic preparations. To bring more of these products to market, the CSIR has entered into a partnership with Afriplex, a leading manufacturer of botanicals for the complementary health, cosmetics and food markets.
