Our Story

Nuya’s Essence, Zanzibar: was founded in June 2013 in Dar Es Salaam, Tanzania and moved to Zanzibar Island in October 2015.

Our goal is to change the face of cosmetic industry in Tanzania and beyond by creating safe, all natural skincare products that are handmade from plant oils, butters, herbs and spices. Our ingredients are sourced locally and around the world, to give you the most unique plant experience and true results you look for.

Our Passion is to connect the gap between human nature and plant power. Plants are so powerful and possess great wisdom and healing in and on themselves and we are proud to be able to extract this goodness and fill it in a bottle for you to embark on a full swing of healing, connection and experience. We believe in clean skincare, biodegradable, eco-friendly, free from any potential harmful substances and thats what Nuya’s Essence stands for. Be a part of our story, today!
