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.
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.
