The science inside each bottle is developed with a single goal; to deliver radiant, youthful skin that reflects the beauty of African skin.
As a medical doctor and longtime user of quality skincare, and having travelled through the African continent as a pharmaceutical professional, I noticed a startling trend amongst us women of darker complexions. Our skincare routines have been dominated by foreign brands developed for lighter skin tones under northern skies, where wrinkling is the primary skin ageing concern.
Our melanin rich skin derives protection from early wrinkling but we face unique challenges such as uneven skin tone, hyperpigmentation and extreme oiliness or dryness. African Dermal Science was born out of this frustration of finding quality skincare that addresses the needs of us women with darker skin tones.
Over the last three years, our renowned, local skincare scientists, have sought out skincare innovations to deliver our first range, Uso, which uses innovative, cutting edge science combined with what nature has to offer. Our formulation designs are specifically developed for African skins.
Our products offer the clinical efficacy essential to visible skin rejuvenation, with safety as a top priority, to create a brand that inspires trust, luxury, sophistication 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'
That African butter produced by @uso_by_african_dermal_science. Thanks @drtheomotoafrendo and Kagiso, I'm converted! 👌 Absolutely love your products #CleanFace #ForUsByUs ❤️
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!!👏👏👑👑
What a beautiful range
Such a beautiful skincare range!
