“B.O.N® products are pure and natural and made from only sustainable natural resources.”
BON® IN THE USA:
B.O.N® Skincare was introduced to the USA in 2013 by Kate Schumann-Braithwaite and Jenny Baker through their distribution company, COZA International. Kate was introduced to B.O.N® Nourishing Skin Oil by her sister while on a visit to Australia. She fell in love with the product and introduced it to her friend and business partner, Jenny Baker who has a skincare distribution company. Both Kate and Jenny felt that B.O.N® Nourishing Skin Oil would be a huge success in the United States as consumers are becoming more aware of the benefits of natural and skin-safe skincare products. They are honored to introduce and distribute this product in the United States.

ENVIRONMENT & SUSTAINABILITY
B.O.N® strives to be as environmentally friendly as possible:
- Essential oils are produced from managed plantation sources and are therefore sustainable and renewable;
- No harvesting from wild stands is permitted;
- Essential oils are extracted by steam distillation – no harmful chemicals are used in the production processes;
- The leaf material used to extract the essential oils is dried and used as a “green fuel” for production purposes;
- In addition to using the “waste leaf” as a green fuel it also converted into a sterile, environmentally friendly mulch, which is used for pet bedding and gardening;
- In the production of refined eucalyptus oil, a terpene based by-product is obtained, which is sold as a “bio-fuel”, helping other businesses to reduce their carbon footprints.
In South Africa B.E.E. means Black Economic Empowerment. B.O.N® has created employment for over 150 previously disadvantaged individuals and their employee profile reflects this:
- More than 95% of their employees are from black communities; and
- More than 50% of the workforce is female.
In addition to this job creation, harvesting operations have been outsourced to Kusasa Harvesting CC, which is 100% owned by their business partner, Mr Siphiwe Kunene.
B.O.N® is classified as a Level 3 contributor (110% complaint) in terms of Broad Based Black Economic Empowerment as defined by the Department of Trade and Industry in South Africa.
