Skin type & Cultural roots

Yangu Oil (Calodendrum capense):
Also called Cape Chestnut, this plant, originating from the Southern African region, is rich in essential fatty acids; its natural UV protection and rich antioxidants protect the hair fiber and skin.


Buriti (Mauritia flexuosa):
The Buriti Palm grows in Amazonia and is used by indigenous population to treat sunburns as well as animal bites. It is considered the richest natural source of beta-carotene, one of the most powerful antioxidants, which supports cell renewal and is an excellent natural peeling. It is a potent anti-aging agent thanks to its ability to absorb radiation in the visible and ultra-violet light spectrum.



Ximenia Oil (Ximenia americana):
Also known as African Sour Plum and originating from the Southern Africa Savannah, this oil has a unique honey-like consistency. Ximenia oil contains Ximenynic acid, which has been shown to improve blood flow in the skin. Due to the exceptionally long fatty acid composition of the oil, it is known for its anti-aging effects and has amazing nourishing and moisturizing properties, reducing inflammation and redness, and improving skin elasticity:

Passion Fruit Oil (Passiflora eduli):
From the seeds of the tropical fruit, this oil contains flavonoids, carotenoids, vitamins E, F and K and vegetal squalene, helping protect against skin degeneration. It is a fast-absorbing, sebum-regulating, anti-etching, anti-rosacea and calming oil with a high content of linoleic acid that helps retain skin hydration.



Avocado Oil (Persea gratissima):
In its unrefined form, this oil is very rich in unsaponifiables and phytosterols, plant-based sterols which mimic the beneficial effect of cholesterol in human skin, increasing elasticity while reducing wrinkles and transepidermal water loss.



Marula (Sclerocarya birrea):
The Marula tree is related to the mango; it is drought resistant and most commonly found at low altitudes in open woodlands in Southern Africa. Marula oil has a powerful free radical scavenging ability and is a high potency antioxidant. It is easily absorbed and contains high proportions of oleic acid and linoleic fatty acid, making it ideal for skin rejuvenation.

Mongongo / Manketti (Schinziophyton rautanenii):
The Mongongo tree grows in dry areas of Sub-Saharan Africa and fares particularly well in the deep sands of the Kalahari. Its oil has a unique composition: it is very high in eleostearic acid. This acid polymerizes rapidly under UV light to form a protective film on skin and hair. Mongongo oil is also high in protective tocopherols.

Papaya Oil (Carica papaya):
Besides a range of Vitamins and minerals as well as Omega 6 and essential fatty acids, it contains a unique enzyme called papain which helps remove dead cells by speeding up cell renewal and dissolves skin impurities.



Pomegranate Oil (Punica granatum):
with its polyunsaturated and antioxidant punicic and ellagic acids, tocopherols (Vitamin E/free radical fighting antioxidant) and phytoestrogens (plant-based estrogens) – reduces free radical damage and acts as a rejuvenating agent. Research has shown that it stimulates the growth of epidermic (keratinocyte) cells in the skin and has anti-inflammatory and anti-carcinogenic properties.



Baobab (Adansonia digitata):
The Baobab tree grows across Africa in hot, dry lowland areas. It is common for Baobabs to live over 1000 years. Baobab oil is non-siccative and contains a high percentage in beta-sitosterols that have been shown to be a strong antioxidant, and to reduce DNA damage in cells. The oil also contains vitamins A, D3 and E. Vitamin A, which, in combination with the essential fatty acids, helps rejuvenate and renew cell membranes.

Cucumber Oil (Cucumis sativus):
Rich in Omega and essential fatty acids, minerals and phytosterols, this oil stimulates cell regeneration, balances the skin and is a great detoxifier.



Kalahari Melon (Citrullus lanatus):
The Kalahari Melon is sustainably harvested from the wild by women’s cooperatives. Its oil is an excellent source of omega-6 essential fatty acids, giving it strong moisturizing and restructuring skin properties. With nearly 2% unsaponifiables, the oil also has a high sterol content, which helps maintain the skin’s barrier function. Its high antioxidant activity possibly helps the plant to survive in the harsh Kalahari Desert.



As a daily routine, apply a few drops on damp face skin (also neckline) immediately after cleansing. Or emulsify by mixing in your palm a few drops of oil with the equivalent in water prior and apply as often as needed or as a gentle massage.

Shake before use! Store in a dark, dry and cool place. Use before expiration date (24 months).This is a natural product subject to small variations in colour, scent and texture.

Being plant-based, hand-crafted and non-standardized, it is perfectly normal for all NadiaZ products to present slight variations in color, texture and scent. To maintain their properties, take care to follow the instructions on storage and use. NadiaZ formulations favor the preservation of the active ingredients by using virgin plant oils, Thus many products have several highly valuable phases, or sediments, which need to be blended by shaking before use.

Recycle glass and paper.

NadiaZ uses Miron Glass, a precious and elegant violet glass, which can be traced back to the Ancient Egyptians who used it to store their medicinal products. It ensures the utmost preservation of fragile plant ingredients, thus reducing the need for any preservatives.

Miron glass is eco-friendly as it is 100% recyclable. You can discard it with your local glass collector or send it back to NadiaZ or your local  representative.

This is what Miron Glass does: Sunlight enables all plants to grow. If they continue to be exposed to the sun after reaching maturity, the effect of the light changes and accelerates the molecular decaying process. Miron violet glass works like a natural filter that only lets the sunlight that protects and improves the quality of premium and sensitive substances. Miron Violet glass blocks the complete spectrum of visible light with the exception of the violet part. At the same time it allows a certain part to be permeable for radiation in the spectral range of UV-A, and infra-red light. This unique combination offers optimal protection against the ageing processes that are released by visible light, thus lengthening durability and potency of products.

    5 out of 5 stars

    I am really “into” skin care and cosmetics and have been for my entire life. I spotted Nadia’s lip cream on etsy and decided to give it a try. I am not exaggerating when I say that the lip cream, the facial serum and facial scrub (had samples and followed up with a purchase) are truly outstanding. My skin looks fresh, pure and clean. I have so many other “green” brands and this is by far superior. Nadia’s attention and communication with you will be outstanding. She seems to really care about teaching her clients the knowledge she has gained. Could not be more satisfied.
