A black owned line inspired by global beauty values ethics and cultural history

Mar, 07, 2017

Time to rejoice! The Black-owned skincare collection, Nyakio, will now be available exclusively at Ulta.

Created by Nyakio Kamoche Grieco, the line was inspired by her Kenyan roots and the medicine men, farmers, and educators in her family. In turn, the Nyakio line of beauty products prides itself on being ethically sourced, and is inspired from global beauty traditions.

The collection contains 16 different products, and contain ingredients such as nourishing Yangu oil, red ginseng, and quinoa. Nyakio's family beauty recipes, in addition to beauty recipes from 13 other countries across the globe, make this line a must-try.

"My beauty journey started when I was a young girl visiting my grandmother in Kenya. She was a coffee farmer who taught me to crush coffee beans and rub them on my skin using a piece of sugarcane to remove dry skin,” Nyakio stated in a press release. “I’ve curated beauty secrets like this from my family, friends and travels around the world and translated them into a full line of skincare based on cultivated global beauty secrets, cultural traditions and ethically and sustainably sourced ingredients. Inspired by everything that’s been shared with me, I’m now sharing the best in global skincare with every woman.”
