LXMI


LXMI, pronounced luxe-me, is committed to three distinct brand tenets:

• Pure, rare ingredients from unique terroir

• Going beyond charity to provide work for women, and

 • Natural and organic botanicals, often safe-enough-to-eat

Leila Janah founded LXMI after a chance discovery of Nilotica, LXMI's signature ingredient, at a market in Uganda. She was astounded by the rare butter's ability to transform her moisture-deprived, overly-traveled skin from lackluster to luminous. Once she learned that she could help marginalized East African women find dignified work through the wild harvesting, production and exportation of Nilotica, she knew she had to change her life to share her new skincare secret with the world.

But she didn't stop there. She went the extra mile(s) to source Nilotica Reserve™, now LXMI's exclusive form of the butter, from the highest-grade nuts in the most pristine areas of the Nile River Valley. Nilotica Reserve's characteristics are sky-high essential fatty acids (+25% that of traditional Shea Butter), natural vitamin crystals that dissolve on the skin, and impact sourcing techniques to ensure that LXMI producers are always paid living wages for their efforts.

Their ethos

  • The way we treat our skin – and people – matters.
  • Work is at the core of human dignity.
  • Giving work is the ultimate solution to global poverty.
