As a medical doctor and pharmaceutical expert, my passion lies in researching, developing and introducing to the market world-class solutions, specifically for the unmet needs of our African skins.

Uso by African Dermal Science is the intersection of this passion, and a life-long love for radiant, healthy skin. In a market highly dominated by foreign brands, I realised that given our melanin-rich skin and the harsh climate we live in, a significant gap existed for a quality science-based accessible brand to serve our needs. Uso by African Dermal Science is the answer to a well-researched, tested and world-class anti-ageing range developed for us, and by us.

Uneven skin tone, hyperpigmentation, seasonal dryness, excessive oiliness and difficulty finding a sunscreen that does not make us look grey. Over the three years we spent developing this range, we worked with renowned local cosmetic scientists, medical doctors and women to research it. In formulating and manufacturing it, the basis is in only using the finest, high-quality ingredients that have been tested for efficacy and safety. Suitable for all skin types as well as both males and females, it has been clinically tested and dermatologist-approved. The science inside each bottle is developed with a single goal in mind – to deliver glowing, hydrated and more even-toned skin that reflects the beauty of science for African skin.
