Brand overview

Ekó Botanicals is a clean, multitasking, sustainable skincare range for maturing skin, created by former city executive turned natural skincare expert Apinke Efiong. Rooted in traditional African and British skincare practices and botanical wisdom, these powerful natural products have spent 2 years in research and development to combine ancient skincare rituals with modern, natural skincare science. Using nutrient-dense, premium quality plant oils and botanical extracts, rich in skin-loving vitamins and omega fatty acids, such as papaya, tamanu, moringa and kalahari melon, they cleanse, nourish and revitalise maturing skin, delivering optimal radiance and condition. Each product is named after a great African warrior Queen whose ancient beauty practices have been admired and passed down through the ages, inspiring a new modern skincare ritual that is deeply nourishing, calming for the mind and respectful to the planet.

Formula Botanica gave Apinke the foundational knowledge, expertise and confidence to develop her formulas.
