LET YOUR MELANIN GLOW! USTAWI skincare line aims to protect and sublime every skin tone. We all have melanin…at different levels, which makes each of us unique! Melanin cells are very sensitive to chemicals, environment, and hormones. Therefore, skin with a higher concentration of melanin has more chance to experience hyperpigmentation, dryness, inflammation and scarring… So naturally, we have tested all our innovative formulations on darker skin tones (phototypes 4-6), to achieve the best results without compromising the wellbeing of your beautiful skin!
