Liyu Skin (ልዩቆዳ) translates from Amharic as ‘special skin’ - the only African language still using an indigenous alphabet today! We were created by a hormonal acne sufferer who naturally repaired her skin barrier after an eye-opening trip to the Ethiopian countryside.
Our scientifically-formulated products formulated and tested in the UK and Asia gives a unique twist to traditional African skincare. We’re here to help those looking for solutions that are not only natural, but effective as well utilising the wonders of science.
We are a non-toxic brand, cruelty-free and our only non-vegan products are those that (clearly) contain honey. We are considered 100% vegan in Ethiopia.
By tirelessly serving our local community, we hope to help reduce the awfully high levels of synthetic-based skincare imports in Africa, ban bleaching and encourage the development of more local natural personal care brands.
