African Ingredients – Now Found on a Beauty Counter Near You!

Move over chemical formulations! As seen in today’s New York Times article, many luxury brands are swapping previously used ingredients for ingredients from and indigenous to Africa.

 

Pioneering this trend is Nyakio Kamoche Grieco, founder and namesake of nyakio™, a collection of skincare products featuring key African ingredients and oils, including Trichilia Oil, Ximenia Oil, Mongongo Nut Oil, Kenyan Coffee and Kola Nut.

One “buzz-worthy” ingredient that was spotlighted in the article is Marula Oil – known as Africa’s Miracle Oil. Derived from the Marula tree, this oil is a key ingredient in the below nyakio products:

 

–        Hydrating Eye Cream with Kola Nut

–        Hydrating Face Lotion with Kola Nut, Broad Spectrum SPF 20 Sunscreen

–        Hydrating Lip Balm with Kola Nut

nyakio products are a highly effective way to exfoliate and hydrate skin – just in time for spring. Please consider the following nyakio products as you begin to work on upcoming stories about spring or about Africa as the new “it” spot.
