Annique, a truly South African direct selling company, is the forerunner in Rooibos health and beauty.
The Annique story began in 1968 when the company’s founder, Dr Annique Theron, warmed her allergic baby’s bottle with warm Rooibos tea. She was amazed at the instant calming, soothing and healing effect it had on her daughter and set out to investigate this tea’s healing properties. As a female working in a male dominated business world, she faced great opposition but persevered and in 1971 Annique was established, and was the first in the world to include Rooibos in health and beauty products.
Rooibos, a unique herb indigenous to South Africa, only grows in the Cederberg region of the Western Cape. Part of the legume family, Rooibos holds countless health benefits, including anti-allergenic, antioxidant, anti-bacterial, anti-inflammatory, anti-viral, anti-spasmodic and anti-ageing properties that help in the fight against cancer, heart disease, diabetes, stress, and kidney disease, to name a few. It is low in tannins and contains no caffeine, so it can be enjoyed by young and old.
In 1997, Annique won two gold medals for the formulation of the Annique Rooibos products from the World Intellectual Property Organisation (WIPO)’s International Woman Inventor of 1997 in Geneva, Switzerland.
Forty-nine years on and Annique has over 21 brands and more than 200 exceptional quality Rooibos-based products including daily, treatment and anti-ageing skincare, an extensive health and body care range.
Annique strives to create life-changing opportunities everyday through their unique business opportunity that allows people from all walks of life to own their own independent Annique businesses.
Annique’s values are focused on honesty, integrity, openness, transparency, truthfulness, trust, excellence, and professionalism. With this set of principals in place, they strive to empower their nation, especially women, and eradicate the inequalities of the past, both for their consultants and at their Home Office, which has a majority of female employees.
Annique aims to be a market leader by developing cutting-edge Rooibos-based products to create life-changing health and beauty opportunities for its customers.
