How it all started 

Melanin Skin Food started from the simple vision of our Co-Founder Karabo to create a brand that fully satisfies the needs of melanin skin. Most popular brands in South Africa are imported from the USA or Europe and push chemical, standardised products onto the African consumers. Karabo hardly found a product that was based on natural ingredients, produced in Africa and fully satisfied his skin requirements. As a result, our visionary Karabo called Melanin Skin Food into life, together with his partner Ann-Kathrin to create an African counterpart and alternative to the popular brands worldwide that too often fail to meet certain standards and requirements.

Lastly, the founders wanted to make Melanin Skin Food a premium brand, which nevertheless is accessible to as many people as possible.
