African Dermal Science

We are a South African, black female owned business focused on the research, development and manufacturing of advanced skin and healthcare solutions targeted at addressing the specific needs of Africans

Our Foundation


We are about research. Our passion lies in understanding the needs of women with darker complexions and developing quality, world-class, premium products, with the sophistication of a global brand to drive renewed perceptions of African beauty.


We are about the science. Our innovative formulations are specifically made for Africans. They are results-driven with scientifically proven outcomes and user testimonials.


We are discovering solutions that are driven by technology to increase access to skincare advice such as Digital Skin Diagnosis and Web Solutions to customise your skincare regiments.


Members of Proudly South African share a commitment to an uplifting ethos that promotes social and economic change and progress. This means that Uso by African Dermal Science makes a meaningful contribution to building South Africa’s economy, alleviating unemployment and retaining existing employment opportunities.


Our Promise

USO Atoms


Our logo is inspired by the atom, the building block of all matter. It informs our company philosophy, from research, to formulation, to our ingredients and operations, we’re geared towards delivering value to the needs of darker complexions.



Our mission is to research, develop and introduce into market breakthrough advanced skincare innovations with high clinical efficacy and safety through brands that inspire trust, confidence and African Pride.


The science inside each bottle is developed with a single goal: to deliver radiant, youthful looking skin that reflects the beauty of science for African skin.

What they’re saying

Clean yet luxurious

Clean yet luxurious, mild but effective with every application: I LOVE every single product from the Uso range but I absolutely swear by the 03 targeted pigmentation, 06 active all day mist and the skin care's best kept secret: the 02 cellular active essence. Finally a scientifically proven product that actually delivers without all the unnecessary fuss! #melaninPoppin'

It really works!

My face is thoroughly hydrated and silky smooth. My dark marks are fading especially around the mouth and chin. USO No3 for hyper-pigmentation is amazing. I put a little on the back of my hands at night to even out the sunburn from driving. This is the first product I've used to do this. Your product does exactly what it promises!!????
