As an artist, there is one place in the world that I want to go the most. The reason is that I believe all the lives originally come from this place, and the beautiful nature is not heavily polluted so much by the modern world, this place is Africa. I found a skincare line that turns back time with products that incorporate time-tested beauty rituals rooted in Africa. By combining scientifically advanced technology with nature based ingredients from Southern Africa, dark circles, puffiness, dryness, dullness and hyperpigmentation can be a thing of the past. With milk cleansers, even-tone serums and a range of moisturizers, Yangu Beauty products help your skin thrive with all-natural ingredients.

Yangu Beauty Gives Back:
Yangu Beauty supports orphans, women and children through it’s Beauty with Compassion Program. Yangu Beauty founder Gumbo created Munhu Inc.

Yangu Beauty also gives back through the sourcing of ingredients. They buy from co-ops that are mainly women owned and supports women who pick up the nuts where their oils are from. This helps them pay tuition for their children.

About Founder Sipho Gumbo:
Years of suffering breakouts from skincare products formulated with harsh ingredients led Sipho on a journey of researching natural skincare. While reminiscing about fond childhood memories, she realized that living in the States had disconnected her from her African traditions and roots. This realization led Sipho to recall the beauty rituals of her grandmother who used wild-harvested African herbs, superfoods, and botanical oils to look after her skin.
Determined to find products that worked for her sensitive skin and armed with the beauty wisdom of her grandmother, Sipho launched Yangu Beauty. Each product is thoughtfully formulated using advanced plant science and pays homage to the time-honored beauty wisdom of her African foremothers. Through Yangu, Sipho is reconnecting with her roots through beauty and sharing her culture with other women around the globe.
