Nyakio and her husband David at the launch party for her fragrance Safi

While she was preggers last year

Safi Fragrance, the packaging is great

Nyakio travel set

Kenyan coffee and sugar body scrub

I would like to thank Christine O. who stops by this blog (diaramaaa sista) and was kind enough to introduce me to the work of Kenyan American entrepeneur Nyakio Kamoche .
I think I may be the last person on earth to discover her bath and body line that she founded in 2002 after she left a great job in Hollywood as an assistant . There, she made a lot of great contacts that ended up being useful to her when she launched her line.For example she was able to sell her products at Fred Segal because she knew some of the staff.
Nyakio's mum also had an influence in her career, in fact as she was growing up her mother would always give her tips regarding skin care ect..sharing with her homemade recipes ect...

Once Nyakio was ready, she created her own business plan ,she hired a chemist and started testing products and the rest is history today..
On top of the Nyakio line she also introduced last year the Safi Fragrance line through Fred Segal

Her line carries:
  • body cream and body scrub
  • oil body
  • candles and home essence
  • perfume
  • travel set

Nyakio now a married mother of one would like to give back to her home country and eventually build a school there....wishing her the best :)

Here's her webbie:

The one I found impressive abt her line is the number of stores who carry her products, I tried searching for NY locations and man so many stores are carrying her..good job!

Djaa my Kenyan sistas sont dedans:)

Eyee Wayee:)
