  • The general term used to describe the ability of any product to either kill or prevent the replication of an infectious agent is anti-infective.
  • If the product targets bacteria specifically, then such products are called antibiotics whereas if the agent is a fungus, then it is referred to as an antifungal.
  • Similarly, any product active against a specific virus would be called an antiviral agent.


BuchuLife First Aid Gel has potent anti-infective, anti-inflammatory, antifungal and antibacterial properties enabling it to act as a natural antibiotic.





Buchulife First Aid Gel was developed in South Africa by Cape Kingdom Nutraceuticals(Pty) Ltd.

The University of Cape Town (UCT)/MRC Research Unit for Exercise Science and Sports Medicine conducted a study to test the efficacy of BuchuLife First Aid Topical Gel in treating symptoms of pain and swelling and found it to be effective. In the near future, UCT/MRC Research Unit for Exercise Science and Sports Medicine will conduct a clinical trial to test the efficacy of the BuchuLife Joint Health capsules in reducing inflammation in individuals with osteoarthritis.




The Buchu herb is unique to the Fynbos biosphere found in the Western Cape region of South Africa. 


The scientifically formulated Buchu oil used to make Buchu Gel contains the potent antioxidants quercitin, rutin, hesperidin, diosmin (bio-flavonoids), diosphenol and Vitamins A, B, and E.  These compounds have been shown to reduce pain and inflammation in chronic conditions.
