Nyakio Beauty was founded in 2017 by Nyakio Kamoche Grieco, a first-generation American of Kenyan descent. Grieco collected traditional beauty remedies from family and friends—like using crushed coffee bean with sugarcane to remove dry skin—to create a globally-inspired skincare range that nourishes and replenishes skin for a glowing complexion. The brand was created in response "to the lack of beauty products using ingredients from [the founder's] homeland of Kenya, like Mafura oil."
Nyakio Beauty offers a variety of skincare products enriched with naturally- and ethically-sourced ingredients including the Sweet Almond Cleansing Oil Balm, the Maracuja & Yangua Rescue Oil, the Manketti & Mafura Anti-Aging Oil, the Kenyan Coffee Face Polish Exfoliate, the Baobab Yout-Infused Daily Defense Creme, and the Marula & Neroli Brightening Oil, among others. The range boasts affordable prices and is available online and at Target retailers.
