About Dawn Body Lotions & Creams

A household name since its launch in the 60s, Dawn is known for celebrating the natural beauty of all women in South Africa. The appeal of our natural moisturising products extends beyond the smooth feel, moisturising effects and exotic richness, and the beautiful and long-lasting fragrances.


2019 sees the introduction of new and improved Dawn body lotions and creams, where our vision of “Beauty that cares for people, society and the planet we share” comes to life. Our purpose-led positioning of always celebrating the diverse beauty of women in South Africa culminates in a proud store shelf moment. Some of the improvements include: 20% more glycerine, 100% more natural moisturisers, added oils, sustainably sourced African Cocoa Butter and suitability for every skin type.

Natural ingredients and added oils

Trends and global demands for natural moisturiser products, insights from our consumers, as well as world-renowned Research & Development all went into creating the new range. It’s why our Dawn body lotions deliver 100% natural moisturisers, plant-based glycerine and a variety of wholesome ingredients that are suitable for every skin type.

From Africa. For Africa.

Dawn celebrates everyday beauty and wants to bring it out in every woman in Africa. It’s made with ingredients that are locally sourced and blended; and is specially formulated to restore and accentuate your skin’s natural radiant glow. It inspires confidence in women, enabling them to own their natural beauty with pride.

Recycled bottle

Because of the “good” that is invested in everything that we do, and the importance for us to always stay true. We made sure that the bottle in which it comes, uses up to 100% recycled materials and is recyclable. Because what’s good for all the women who love Dawn, must also be good for the environment.
