RAIN has eight stores in South Africa and one in New York, and prides itself on the creation of Natural Fair Trade bodycare, using wild harvested botanical actives.

This home-grown South African business is unique by having its own stores from where to market their products.

The body and bath-product brand was founded by Bev Missing founded 14 years ago in Swellendam .  

She started off the business with two staff and now employs 110 direct employees and has around 40 CMT’s in various supplier groups.

Bev explains that the reason RAIN came into existence was to provide jobs, skills and hope to people living in desperate poverty, particularly women and the disabled. 

RAIN is the only Southern African beauty and body product company which is accredited by both Fair Trade in Africa and the international Fair Trade body in Europe.

This year, Bev published the 'Rain Book of Natural Soapmaking'  in both English and Afrikaans
