Plant-based, clinically effective, non-toxic skincare for face & body.

LXMI unites undiscovered, effective natural ingredients with transparent, responsible production and sourcing practices.

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.

LXMI’s primary ingredient harvests enable their producers to earn at least 3x local wages. These living wages will help chip away at some of the world’s most serious problems, from childhood malnutrition to human trafficking. Let’s transform our skin, our planet and people for the better.

They’ve built their supply chain carefully via non-profit collectives, believing that fair-wage and dignified work elevates their end product, and creates a higher level of luxury for discerning consumers.

Let’s transform our skin, our planet and people for the better.
