Narganics is one of the brands that was featured here on the blog as part of the Proudly Nigerian Beauty Series. They recently launched a new product called Aurum. A first of its kind in Nigeria, Aurum is a 24K Gold Beauty Elixir is handmade in Nigeria and features 24 Karat Gold flakes infused into a proprietary blend of five powerful carrier oils and five essential oils having balancing, nourishing and soothing characteristics.

 

It has a lightweight silky feel and is easily absorbed into the skin, leaving it looking clearer, younger, and smoother. The beauty elixir can be mixed in with your foundation to create a dewy finish, as a lip primer, or added to your existing moisturizer for an all over body treatment.

 

The owner of the brand says her idea to create a 24 Karat Gold infused oil was inspired by Nigerians love of luxury skincare. In her words, she decided ‘to go big’ by introducing the “anti-aging, anti-inflammatory and antioxidant property of 24 Karat Gold flakes to the formulation”.

 

The brand collaborated with Eku Edewor on this project, as they felt she was an ideal choice. Eku who was pregnant when approached by Narganics was already on a natural skincare journey and saw it as a perfect pairing.

When it comes to skincare brands, I think this is where we have the highest number of brands and businesses, in comparison to other indigenous beauty brand categories (e.g makeup, hair care, etc.). Here on BeautyInLagos, I have featured and reviewed quite a number of Nigerian skincare brands, so this time I wanted to share brands you all haven’t necessarily heard of, but are absolutely amazing.


NARGANICS

The Narganics Company is a mainly natural and organic skincare and fragrance brand, founded in 2016. Narganics stems from the words ‘Natural’ and ‘Organic’ which dovetails with the brand ethos. The passion to create a handmade skincare and fragrance brand with unique formulas and infusions that leave a memorable experience is at the heart of all our products.

Handmade in Lagos Nigeria, Narganics believe that health and wellness depend on the delicate balance between mind, body and spirit and that daily bath and skincare routine should be enjoyable, therapeutic and brought back to the realm of natural beauty .

Inspired by nature, Narganics creates unique skincare products that fuse intoxicating scents & floral infusions with effective natural skincare.

COOKIE SKIN

Cookie Skin aims to redefine the meaning of beauty amongst men and women of African descent by making holistic skincare that doesn’t perpetuate the idea that beauty is based on skin color. Born out of the frustration having to combine creams to achieve flawless skin, the owner of the brand decided to create a  line of holistic skin care products for women of color.
