YANGA NATURAL is a British-born West African skincare brand with a unique story. The name YANGA originates from Sierra Leone and can be loosely interpreted as ‘the time one takes to beautify oneself’. The YANGA NATURAL brand has come a long way from nature to nurturing oneself.
We are inspired by the community of Ghana-Accra-Kumasi, where we have decided to interact with the humans and nature of these areas to create raw materials that are brought into the UK to formulate our own signature value-added products. The combination of tradition and innovation is used to extract, create, and utilize the benefits of quality botanical ingredients.
Shea Butter, Coconut, and Baobab Oils feature a lot in our products and they have always been at the heart of YANGA NATURAL’s formulations. All of these ingredients are rich in vitamins and antioxidants which are very good for your skin and overall well-being. Most of our products are handcrafted in small batches, with you in mind.
Our passion to create and experience has given us the chance to become a skincare brand that produces a long-lasting sense of well-being. The unique way in which we jointly work with people and nature preserves our passion to design, create, and formulate. This, in no small measure, contributes to our surroundings of energy, peace, and tranquillity which we want to pass unto you, our fans.
We warmly invite you to explore our e-commerce site and not only understand our vision but to enjoy, appreciate, and contribute to our journey of natural wellness and beauty. We believe that human behaviour can be moulded by nature, so we want Nature to Nurture you.
The process of making our products is incredibly important to us as a brand. Our major aim is to make you, as our customers trust us to do the right thing and we try to repay this trust that has been vested in us by being extra careful and paying attention to the littlest detail on how we source, manufacture, and package our products.

The secret to our look is a desire to keep a simple, yet interesting design. The combination of the colours white, green, and black is for a reason. Black is considered to be the colour of perfection, White means safety, purity, and cleanliness while Green, the colour of life, renewal, nature, and energy is associated with growth, harmony, freshness, safety, and the environment.
Yanga Natural expresses itself through energy and this design is meant to relay a message of our surroundings and purpose.
