As much as I enjoy recommending skincare products I rarely or never recommend Namibian Skincare products. I decided that that has to change because as we all know “local is lekker” and it doesn’t only apply to food. The Namibian Skincare industry is slowly growing and it’s time we consume our own, locally produced products. I started with 3 skincare brands: DK Beautie, Chen Organics and Ilotu Cosmetics. These brands cater to a range of skin types so you will definitely find a product for you. Moreover they are giving away some skincare goodies! Read this article for the Giveaway details.

1. DK Beautie

Tomasia Kambiru is the owner and founder of DK Beautie which is vegan skincare, body care and hair care line that utilises the benefits of natural and organic resources, particularly turmeric. Kambiru started her business in 2020, during covid and currently has close to 6000 followers on Instagram. The business sells a range of products from face washes, scrubs and body butters to bath salts and brightening masks.

Apart from owning a thriving business, Kambiru is a full-time employee in the tourism industry as a journey specialist and she’s also an aesthetician. She has a few words for those who would like to tap into the skincare business: “Be passionate about something and go for it. Do not fear competition because we all start small.” She continues to say that one needs to do research on whatever it is you want to venture in and choose an appropriate niche.

You can contact DK Beautie at +264813249035 to order or follow them on Instagram to view their items. They ship countrywide and internationally.

3. Ilotu Cosmetics

Mereka Masule often referred to as Lilly or Ilotu is the founder and owner of Ilotu cosmetics officially launched on the 17th of August 2022. It began operation in 2018 and during that period leading up to the launch, testing, surveying and reviewing of the products were being done. “We were testing the market. I wanted to see what people actually liked.” Masule is a full-time entrepreneur and her business offers a wide variety of products, ranging from facial skincare products, massaging oils, hand cremes and hair care products.

If you are interested in creating a cosmetic business, Masule advises you to tap into what excites you. She continued to mention how skincare is all about chemistry, “Educate yourself and do research on [scientific] terminology because that was what I struggled with.” She also encourages one to ask themselves whether that is something they really want to do.
