If you had asked me ten or so years ago if I would be running a natural skincare brand today, I would probably have laughed in your face and changed the subject. But here I am today, and here is Molewa Skincare - born as Utopia Cosmetix in 2017, in beautiful Buckinghamshire UK - and rebranded Molewa Skincare in 2018.
My name is Sola Sangowawa-Boua and I am the founder, researcher and skincare formulator at Molewa Skincare. My journey started in 2008 in my little kitchen, experimenting with my own skincare formulas and concoctions because I needed to address my skin and body care issues naturally, alongside implementing a modified lifestyle approach. Following health concerns, I decided to eradicate negative chemicals and ingredients from my skin and body care routine, whilst still remaining true to myself – not compromising on safe yet beautiful, luxurious and pampering products.
A decade later, after many testers and users, and by going from a very enthusiastic home formulator to a professional formulator, the dream was launched.
My aim is to create high performing natural skin and body care products that can answer my customers’ most important skin and body care needs, without compromising on finesse, decadence and a natural approach.
Molewa Skincare is an artisan producer of decadent natural skin and body care products. Everything I create is hand-crafted using the world’s best natural butters, oils and natural superfoods. These ultimate facial and body delights are tailored just for you, as you indulge your senses in a head to toe pampering experience.
A lot of investment goes into the brand’s R&D to bring you the ultimate luxury skincare experience, and to ensure that only the world’s finest and potent ingredients that are unique, extensively researched and nutrient-rich, make it into my products.
My formulas have a high percentage of active ingredients because I will not compromise on ensuring that you get the most from your skincare.
Each bottle and jar is inspired, formulated and filled by hand, from my private studio in Buckinghamshire. Each beautiful piece of soap is made from scratch and carefully packaged for you. I produce all my products in micro-batches, for ultimate freshness and efficacy.
I do not use fillers, parabens, propylene or butylene glycol, petroleum, PEGs, TEA, artificial fragrances, hydroquinone, silicones or carcinogens. I do not test on animals – I instead rely on willing adults to try my products, before releasing them to you, in their finished to perfection state.
I am an innovator, and my products are a fine balance of natural and scientific methodology. I am always busy developing wonderful creations, to inspire you to delight and indulge in your self-care ritual. I hope you will try and I hope you will enjoy Molewa products, knowing that what has been left out of each and every product makes it as wonderful and luxurious as what has been put into it.
So… wishing you a lifetime of health, joy and sweet pampering!
