Suki Suki Naturals
Linda Gieskes-Mwamba, founder of Suki Suki was born in Kinshasa, Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), but grew up in Brussels and Johannesburg. Her passion for beauty and skincare started when she was a curious five year old, clambering into her mother’s beauty cabinet and playing with her French cosmetics.
Suki Suki Naturals was started in 2010, when Linda – then studying law — wanted to grow her treated hair out into an afro. All the hair products available were either full of chemicals, or were ridiculously expensive — or both.
She couldn’t afford to have natural hair! Linda, then started experimenting to treat her hair, leading to the development of the Miraculous Oil, Suki Suki’s first and still most popular product.
Suki Suki is on a mission to create natural products that nurture, soothe and heal skin and hair with harm-free ingredients from Mother Nature’s pantry. It is passionate about the quality of ingredients and focused on unique and relatively undiscovered African specialties like Prickly Pear, and under-utilised natural remedies like Papaya and Mango. The uniquely formulated and handcrafted recipes celebrate Africa’s rich and diverse plant life while keeping you free from harmful and artificial chemicals.
