Our humble beginnings started in Ladybrand, a small rural village on the Free State border between South Africa and Lesotho. Today, Rain is a proudly South African international brand.
After establishing ourselves as a manufacturing wholesaler, we opened our first Rain-branded store in 2005. The concept soon took off, with more Rain stores opening across South Africa and the globe, including Ireland and New York. There are currently 30 Rain retail stores.
In keeping with tradition and family values, when Rain required resources and expertise to grow past six stores, the Bosch family came on board as partners and investors, helping to expand the company’s international profile. Today, the new green Rain factory with a reduced environmental footprint is located on the Bosch’s family farm, Dal River near Paarl in the Western Cape. It’s also no coincidence that Dal River is home to the Olive Factory, which produces extra virgin olive oil on the farm, the main ingredient in Rain’s handmade olive oil skincare and beauty products.

nurture the environment
Before any product reaches our shelves, it is not only tested for efficacy and safety, but also to ensure its low environmental footprint. The all-natural ingredients we use are harmless to the environment and your skin, while providing the nourishment and revival it needs.
We are passionate about our planet and believe in nurturing it through recycling, reducing and reusing. Our energy-efficient, solar-powered production processes ensure a low carbon footprint and no harmful effluent is created by the factory. We use treated groundwater in the factory and recycle waste water from the factory to irrigate our olive trees.
sustain and speak life
At Rain, we support small suppliers and producers by sourcing our natural ingredients from people who sustainably wild harvest it in remote areas of Southern Africa, while our products and gift packaging are handmade by trained crafters.
None of our products or raw ingredients are tested on animals. At Rain, we work together to replenish, nourish, nurture and sustain life.
I have been using RAIN Botanical Cleansing Gel for over a year. I have very sensitive combination skin that can be quite dry during the colder months. Many cleansers I have used in the past will dry it out more, whereas Botanical cleansing gel is so gentle on the skin and smells absolutely gorgeous too. I highly recommend this product ☆☆☆☆☆
Love the product have used it many times especially love when my house is clean and tidy feel the house has a very cosy homely feel and all the family love it
biologie manketti and star flower body scrub
wild fig body butter
I have to say, I ordered two of these. They’re for men and women. As a man, I have had no problem putting this on the desk at work and using it. It’s a very dry environment and it has a really pleasant smell and no oily residues.
It's not really a butter but a lush creamy body cream and it's divine! Fabulous texture that really moisturises your skin with a lovely fresh delicate scent that people always comment positively on. Really happy with this cream, it's my second purchase!
The richness of this oil is beautiful and hydrating
The best Lavender I have come across to date. I only buy Rain South Africa Lavender essential oil.
Great smell, feels like being in SA whole day!
Cannot rate this butterball more higher. The smell is just amazing but more importantly is how your skin feels after. It feels like you have applied moisturiser on your body even the day after. I love this product.
