Say goodbye to dark marks with Yearn Skin

Yearn Skin is the new innovative skincare brand that launched in South Africa in 2021. Focusing on providing non-toxic, dermatologically-tested and endorsed skincare products, Yearn Skin products brighten the skin by correcting hyperpigmentation, dark spots and uneven skin tone.

The brand believes that skincare should be a viewed holistically, taking into consideration not only your skincare products, but your environment, what you eat, your mental health and your physical health.

With a philosophy that not all natural ingredients are good and not all synthetic ingredients are bad, their range uses a combination of natural and lab bioactive ingredients that restore, brighten and maintain healthy-looking skin.

Offering product that is not only inclusive, promotes self-care and presents more than just outward beauty, but transforms the way their customers feels inside and out.

Founders and siblings Natasha and Nadia Michael share their unique story in South Africa.

“As women of colour we personally struggled with uneven skin tone and dark marks. After years of going for skin treatments and spending thousands on skincare products; we found that many skincare brands on the market did not wholly cater to our particular needs. We believe that skincare should not only be inclusive but reasonable in terms of access and affordability.

And so, our brand was started out of the necessity to address the issue of hyperpigmentation.

We know how this skin condition affects one's self-esteem and we wanted to create a comprehensive skincare line addressing this issue.

Essentially, we want people to FEEL GOOD IN THEIR OWN SKIN.

As a company we value customer experience, product quality, efficacy, education, research and development, authenticity, boldness and innovation.

We want to thoughtfully formulate affordable, proudly South African products, that meet EU standards where possible, and enhances your natural beauty. We believe that everyone YEARNS for and deserves skincare that makes you feel good in your own skin."
