Dallas-based skincare company Yangu Beauty is the recent recipient of the 2018 Editor’s Choice Awards by Naturally Curly for three out of its 12 skincare products. Awarded Editor’s Choice for its Cleansing Whip, Gel to Milk Cleanser, and Even-Tone Serum, Yangu Beauty is undeniably the go-to source in technologically advanced skin care, specifically for women of color.
“We are happy to be recognized by Naturally Curly, and they have confirmed us as the best in facial care,” Yangu Beauty Founder Sipho Gumbo stated. “For us as a brand, this means that the market we had in mind has given us an affirmation and confidence. We are truly honored and will go boldly to produce more amazing products for our clients.”
Translated as “My Beauty” in most Bantu and KiSwahili African languages, Yangu Beauty takes the ancient wisdom of tried-and-true herbs, plants, and oils of the South African foremothers and combines them with cutting edge technology for an award-winning line developed by women for women of color. It is a natural, vegan, plant-based line that is free of parabens, animal products and artificial coloring.
The complete skin care line can be found on YanguBeauty.com, which will include the three Yangu Beauty Naturally Curly Editor’s Choice award-winning products:
Cleansing Whip: A natural reviving facial cleanser for oily, acne prone skin created for women of color with sensitive skin. It pumps to create a rich foam that removes dirt, impurities and makeup, leaving skin soft and clean. Infused with African Kalahari Melon Seed Oil (which is rich in omega 6 and 9 essential fatty acids), this product is known for balancing moisture and sebum.
Gel to Milk Cleanser: A natural deep hydrating cleanser for women of color. It contains YMB™ Complex with natural ingredients sourced directly from Africa. This gel to milk Cleanser is a soothing natural oil cleanser that gently removes dirt and makeup and turns to milk to rinse off clean – leaving skin soft, supple and hydrated.
Even-Tone Serum: A serum that naturally reduces dark spots and scars. The even-tone Serum contains YMB™ Complex with natural ingredients sourced directly from Africa. A lightweight serum helps fade dark spots and over-pigmented areas for a more even, radiant complexion.
In addition to these recent awards, Yangu Beauty was awarded the Best in Black Owned Brands in March 2018 and looks to expand its reach and notoriety within the Dallas Fort-Worth Metroplex throughout the year. For more information about Yangu Beauty, please visit www.YanguBeauty.com.
