Uso by African Dermal Science Skincare Range:
Introducing Uso by African Dermal Science, a proudly South African anti-ageing skincare brand that has hit the local South African market. Specifically formulated for Africans and the African climate, the product name Uso takes its meaning from the Zulu word Ubuso, a celebration of who we are as Africans. In a local market highly dominated by multinationals, Uso is the first local skincare range that is developed by a Doctor and 100% black-owned to be available at Edgars Beauty stores nationwide, side to side with the most well known global brands. The company, African Dermal Science, is also a Proudly South African member.
The Founder was born and bred in Soshanguve. She’s a Medical Doctor and Pharmaceutical Expert. Dr Theo Mothoa-Frendo was inspired by her personal struggles, finding locally developed quality skincare that addresses her specific African needs. She then identified the following as being skincare concerns that many people struggle with specifically Africans: uneven skin tone, hyperpigmentation, seasonal dryness, oily skin and difficulty finding a sunscreen that does not leave a grey or white residue on the skin.
Over the past 4 years, the brand has worked with renowned local cosmetic scientists, medical doctors, women with darker skin tones and Marketing and Advertising Experts to research and develop the world-class, proudly South African skincare range. Only the finest Botanical ingredients and the most advanced, tested, active pharmaceutical ingredients the world over have been used for the range products. Packed with active ingredients such as Centela, Chamomile, Pro vitamin-B, Hyaluronic Acid, Kombucha, Niacinamide amongst many others: the formulas not only deliver visible skin benefits and also treat you to an indulgent sensorial experience.
Suitable for all skin types, this cosmeceutical range has been clinically tested and dermatologist approved. The science inside each bottle is developed with a single goal in mind: to deliver glowing, hydrated, more even-toned skin that reflects the beauty of science for African Skin. It a simple to use range and all products have detailed user instructions and are numbered for ease of use.
