While walking through a market in Uganda, Leila Janah came across nilotica, a creamy nut extract that’s a cousin of shea butter but with more fatty acids, Vitamin A, and antioxidants. Her skin, feeling dry and tight from travel, soaked up the hydrating oil without any greasiness, and that was just the beginning.

While walking through a market in Uganda, Leila Janah came across nilotica, a creamy nut extract that’s a cousin of shea butter but with more fatty acids, Vitamin A, and antioxidants. Her skin, feeling dry and tight from travel, soaked up the hydrating oil without any greasiness, and that was just the beginning. Leila, a Harvard grad, was no stranger to an entrepreneurial life—since 2008, she’d helmed Samasource, an AI technology training firm with a mission to empower employees in Kenya and Uganda through fairly paid work and skills training. So when Leila decided to branch out into skincare and beauty products under the name LXMI, it was a given that giving back would be key to the company’s DNA. After some serious research, Leila set up a supply chain that pays workers about three times what other operations do to make LXMI’s fast-absorbing face moisturizer and gleaming highlighter. As Leila says, “These living wages will help chip away at some of the most serious problems, from childhood malnutrition to human trafficking. Let's transform our skin, our planet, and people for the better.”
