Nunuki®, South Africa’s hidden skincare gem brings fun and science to little humans

Johannesburg, July 2020Nunuki®, is a proudly South African skincare brand created for little humans that delivers a perfect combination of fun and science in a uniquely enchanting way.

Nunuki®, is the brainchild of a South African mother of two, Nána (Nanaki) Lloyd, a self-titled Kids Passionista. The range was developed in partnership with a panel of South African experts and a best-in-class pharmaceutical company. Nunuki® believes that fun is as important as science – so the creators have ensured that they manufactured the best quality skincare, with natural active ingredients even for the most sensitive skin. Each product has been dermatologically tested and approved. Should a child’s skin have an adverse reaction, they guarantee customers 100% of their money back. As a further stamp of approval,  Nunuki® has also received the CANSA Seal of Recognition for the entire range.

Nunuki® understands the importance of family time and how precious intimate moments of parenthood are. As parents, we hold these moments dear to our hearts for the lifelong trust and love they build between us and our little humans. Those quiet, connected moments are perfect teaching opportunities. Let us introduce our family members – the nunukis – an eclectic group of characters who are ready to help teach your little humans valuable life lessons with easy to remember principles. Each of them represents a particular product, and with it all of the facts, stats, info and need-to-knows about that product and product category.

“As a mother of my own two precious nunu’s, it was important for me to create a brand that resonates with parents and makes a difference in their everyday life. A brand that is not only known for skincare but offers the most valuable life lessons to each user. I know you’ll love the range as much as I do”, says Nána Lloyd, Founder & Kids Passionista.

Nunuki® is available to purchase at selected Kids Emporium stores, Pick ‘n Pay stores, leading pharmacies, independent baby boutiques or via our website.
