Nabakindo All-Natural Skincare is a family-owned, skincare company specializing in handmade, plant-based products for all skin types. Nabakindo, pronounced (nah-bah-kin-doh), is a blended word comprised of the two words, Nakindo and Bakindo. Originating from the Azande tribe of South Sudan, Nakindo is a title given to queens or the female monarch of an empire. Similarly, Bakindo means “king” or male supreme ruler. Together these words illustrate the essence of who we strive to be – a premier, family-focused brand committed to enhancing the array of melanin-kissed complexions of our kings, queens, and heirs.
Nabakindo is unique in that we offer premium, anhydrous (water-free) products containing botanically pure (plant-based) ingredients. Our anhydrous formulas serve to effectively treat and moisturize, tone and tighten, and reduce dryness and irritation of the skin due to the absence of harsh chemicals and preservatives.
Through research and usage of several popular products, we learned that many skincare manufacturers commonly use water as a primary additive. Because water promotes the growth of microorganisms, those who use it in their formulas must add preservatives to increase their product shelf life. As a result, these products are more diluted and tend to dry out the skin while stripping away the natural oils our melanin needs to thrive.
At Nabakindo, we promote the practice of anhydrous skincare to highlight the ultimate luxury experience of our products. Without the use of watered-down formulas, we provide you with a richer, more naturally concentrated product, which means a little goes a long way. The Nabakindo experience aims to keep your skin moisturized well beyond application using minimal ingredients for maximum effectiveness.
Nabakindo was established in 2020 when husband and wife duo, Philip and Vania, recognized the need for an effective treatment of their daughter’s sensitive, eczema prone skin. After experimenting with several commercial brands to no avail, Philip and Vania decided that a change was needed.
Philip and Vania take pride in fulfilling our consumers’ needs with integrity, passion and superior customer service. We have a love for the community and believe in providing our beautiful Nakindos and Bakindos with long-lasting, environmentally-friendly skincare solutions.
Nabakindo would love to partner with you and your family for your skincare needs!

Here at Nabakindo, we set high standards to ensure every product we offer is wholesome, unique and effective.
100% PLANT-BASED SELECT INGREDIENTS: Each one of our ingredients can be traced directly to the source from which it was harvested. We have personal relationships with our suppliers to ensure purity in every component of our all-natural formulations.
LESS IS MORE: We believe this is true for both our ingredients and for our packaging. All of our packaging is recyclable, and many of our solid products are sold with naked packaging in effort to reduce waste. We aim to make a positive impact on our planet!
HANDMADE: There's something soulful about handmade goods. Our products are hand-crafted and made with love in every batch. We find this step is essential for our customers and ourselves.
PROVEN EFFECTIVE: Our formulations go through rigorous trials to ensure desired results. Plus, we know our products are a joy to use, so there is instant gratification from first application!
CRUELTY FREE: We craft with compassion. We find that the animal cruelty is both unreliable and unnecessary.
PRESERVATIVE FREE: We use absolutely no preservatives unless they 1) innately occur within the ingredient and 2) are completely safe. As far as we’re concerned, if it doesn’t spoil, it’s not good for you. Plus, many of our products have a natural shelf life up to two years without the addition of preservatives.
SUSTAINABLE & PALM OIL FREE: Completely plant-based doesn’t mean all plants make the cut! Although palm oil is inexpensive and often used in the cosmetics industry, we don’t use it! Palm oil has been vastly overharvested, which is leading to deforestation. We choose sustainability over product cost every time.
