Changing lives, one child at a time – Bernard and Elicia

Bernard and Elicia Badenhorst are both very passionate people. Bernard is a friendly, light hearted man who laughs easily.  He comes from a typical Afrikaans family, whereas Elicia has an Afrikaans mom but her dad is Italian.  Her Italian roots become very prominent in certain situations.  She loves Italian food and knows how to make proper, delicious pizzas from scratch.

They are both teachers and one of their passions is making a difference in children’s lives.  Bernard loves sports and is a dedicated runner. He is also a pastor and his beliefs shine through in everything he does.  He is the kind of person that doesn’t judge or care about where a person comes from, but embrace people for who they are.  He is very enthusiastic, has a love for life, and his family is extremely important to him.  His two beautiful little girls have their daddy wrapped tightly around their little fingers. 

Elicia is a teacher-entrepreneur. She had a modelling school, teaching from practical experience as she had been a model herself.  Apart from the normal modelling curriculum, she went out of her way to teach kids to love themselves despite what the world says.  Her focus was always on living life with dignity and knowing ones worth. Recently, painting became one of her passions, and fittingly, she won a Tjoko DIY competition last year.  This opened a new world to her.  She also owns another small business called Miki Maths where she teaches children to understand mathematical concepts from a very young age.

Bernard and Elicia are a beautiful couple. They are both very caring and frequently get involved in community projects.  Their friends talk about them with lots of love and admiration.   

Their excitement to receive their Epi-max hampers were contagious. Bernard was especially thrilled with his Epi-max Man gift.  He mentioned a few times “what a cool concept it was” and that he was not at all expecting such a great gift.

Elicia knows the Epi-max product range well and have used it before.  In her opinion the bum cream was the best ever.  She continues to use Epi-max products, and seeing that her girls are not babies anymore, she would re-gift the bum cream to one of her a pregnant friends to introduce her to the products.

The Epi-max team spent the evening of 22 September sharing valuable information with our group of baby mommies. The online session was filled with scientific snippets and practical pointers that helped the mom’s understand the benefits and uses of the range of Epi-max products better. Thank you to Salmari Fourie and her team, for the insights shared and valuable BABY TALK provided!
