Meet Our Founder

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.
