Ngwedi Beauty was born in Gugu’s kitchen in 2018. At the time it wasn’t called Ngwedi Beauty and she had no idea it would end up as a full-on skincare business. Gugu initially started concocting her own hair products purely as a response to trying and failing to find hair products on the shelves of stores that would moisturise her hair adequately, wash her hair without completely stripping it of her already-limited natural oils and conditioners that didn’t cause excessive build-up and protein overload. She began making her own natural skincare products after being diagnosed with eczema and struggling with years of not finding skin care products that really helped with her chronically dry and sensitive skin. Over time, Gugu has created moisturising hair and skin products that tend to all her skin and hair needs. She goes by @GuguBela online and has a YouTube channel where she shares DIY recipes and hair advice. She does, however, realise that only some people like to make their own cosmetics. So, as we speak, she’s working with various juices, berries, butters, clays and herbs to bring forth incredible natural skin and hair products to her fellow Rainbow Natives. If you're looking for natural cruelty-free products that will leave you with glowing skin and a clear conscience, Ngwedi Beauty is your holy grail.
