Velvet skin started because of a personal wellness journey. Riyana, our chief “Cook” was diagnosed with a chronic illness and developed skin sensitivities and irritations that were resistant to everything medicine could do.
So, she went back to her roots and did what all cosmeticians say not to. She put oil on her skin.
It started with olive oil and coconut oil. The relief was immediate and she has come a long way since then. We still use oil and lots of it, because it works to heal skin and to support skin to remain healthy and improve its condition.
Riyana is continuously finding better ways to combine different, locally sourced natural ingredients to find the “secret” to glowing skin. You could be forgiven for being tempted to eat our creations with their fragrant ingredients. We recommend you only use them on your hair and skin!
