Is the brainchild and middle name of our founder and Chief Chemist, Eunice N. Cofie. It means, “first daughter in the family and hardworking one,” and Eunice chose this name for the brand because of how hard our products work to promote healthy, youthful looking skin. Crafted specifically for people of color, our innovative brand of health and beauty products are scientifically formulated with a unique combination of traditional African medicine and cutting edge science.
Mentored by a professor in cosmetic science, Eunice had the epiphany that beauty could be the pathway to bridge the gap between her two worlds, and bring about healing in more ways than one. Nuekie was developed after ten long years of product research and development. We seek to fill the overwhelming need for products on the market that cater to people of color and solve their distinct skin-related problems. Formulated with a dedicated scientific approach, our Moisture Therapy Crème moisturizes the skin, increases elasticity, and reduces wrinkles. The Pre-Cleanser Deep Cleansing Oil is powerful enough to remove dirt and other impurities from the skin, yet still gentle enough for daily use.
The word Nuekie is our founder’s middle name and it means, “first daughter in the family and hardworking one.” Eunice chose this name for the brand because our products work hard to promote healthy, youthful looking skin.
