About Us

Uhuru means “Freedom” in the Kenyan dialect of Swahili.

Uhuru Botanicals natural & organic skincare range was inspired by a mothers search for soothing skincare products for her baby daughter Lulu, who had eczema. Unable to find anything suitable, Neo began making her own skincare products for her family using the purest Shea Butter as the base ingredient and combining it with natural botanical oils from Africa.

We chose the name Uhuru because we wanted to emphasise the importance of freeing your skin from products full of toxic chemicals. We also wanted to share Africa with the world, through natural skincare products that are Inspired by Africa.
Each product has been handcrafted with the finest natural and organic botanicals, derived from the rich soils of Africa. Our brand philosophy is that our skincare is Multi-use, Organic & natural, Vegan and Ethically produced. Our skincare is carefully formulated to naturally cleanse, nourish and restore the rich beauty of your skin.
We believe that before you put on your makeup, clothes or jewellery, your skin has to be right. When you use Uhuru Botanicals products, we want you to look & feel amazing because you have chosen a brand that is best suited for your skin needs. You can go out each day exuding self-confidence and enjoying beautiful skin.
Here’s to healthy, glowing skin!
