about us


The Care Co. is in the business of distributing cosmetic and personal care ingredients for manufacture, as well as bulk finished products and packaging. Our market base is South Africa and we export to certain African countries.

Our head office is in Melrose Arch, Johannesburg and our Western Cape office is in De Waterkant, Cape Town. We have chosen edgy urban areas for our offices in order to welcome our customers and our suppliers to enjoy their visits to us. Our warehousing and distribution happens from a central point in Kempton Park, Gauteng.

We are a well functioning, cohesive team, passionate about our industry and doing business with our customers and our suppliers. We have special relationships with our customers and we draw on their personalities to encourage us in our daily work. Our suppliers are our life blood and we treat them like an extension of our business.

Our strong culture exudes energy, creativity, service-orientation, and having fun, whilst doing business in the most effective and efficient way possible. The Care Co. provides a platform for young entrepreneurial women with an education in science, health or cosmetics to grow into specialists in cosmetics and business. We have a family type of culture that nurtures, supports and respects each other. The team is professional, health-oriented and friendly. Trust is our most fundamental value.

From the beginnings of an idea between Helen Playdon and Ilana Liebenberg, 3 years later The Care Co. has a substantial base of customers within South Africa, and is growing into exporting to other African countries.

Ilana Liebenberg tragically passed away within the first few weeks of the company starting. Her legacy of caring, laughter, nurturing and nature endure in the business.

The Care Co. is not just another ingredients supplier. We are creative, trends focussed, and innovative, ever adapting to change. We are flexible and function quickly. Our small size and niche focus allows us to be adaptable to the needs of our customers and the markets we serve. It is our wish to be true partners with our customers, walking a long road together with them, on which we offer them many more benefits than the products that we sell.
