The evolution of Tropical Naturals occurred organically over a twenty-year period. TNL started as a manually-operated small-scale plant in 1995 and became a registered full-scale company in 2007.

Our brand’s flagship product, Dudu-Osun, has since then grown to receive global recognition with sales in over fifty countries worldwide.

At Tropical Naturals, we pride ourselves in our flexibility, resourcefulness and innovative capacity. Teams of veteran technicians, engineers and designers come together to solve problems in-house that would otherwise require weeks of logistics and repetitive dialogue with outsourced technical support. This makes us adaptable; helps us to tackle problems instantly, and owing to experience; often helps us to foresee problem areas.

With a can-do attitude, numerous machines and parts are made and serviced in-house; and we challenge ourselves every day to push the boundaries of our abilities and imagination. Many of these novel inventions give us a competitive advantage in the beauty and skincare industry.
