About Us

Welcome to Kijate, where the journey to radiant skin is woven with the threads of
heritage and a lifelong passion for skincare.

Our journey into the world of cosmetics is more than just a business; it's a cherished legacy born from the hands of a passionate beautician, my mother, Immaculée Murekatete. The name "Kijate" itself is an acronym, a tribute to my mother, whose influence and spirit echoes through every product we offer.

Hailing from a small salon in Africa, my mother's expertise in beauty became my earliest inspiration. As a little girl, I was enamored by the artistry of her makeup techniques and the allure of the products and tools she used.

As a young girl, I was enthralled by the weekly beauty rituals that we later on kept as a tradition with my sister, experimenting with an array of products we found at home. Those early memories of homemade concoctions mayonnaise-based hair masks, honey-infused face masks—crafted by my mother, linger as a testament to the roots of our skincare legacy

The introduction to clay masks was another pivotal moment, a beauty tradition passed down from my mother. In our household, she always had a substantial pot of powdered clay, meticulously creating masks that became a symbol of purity and simplicity. This profound connection to clay masks has left an indelible mark, inspiring our inaugural product range at Kijate.

Our first range of clay masks is a tribute to simplicity and effectiveness.

At Kijate, our mission is to simplify the beauty ritual, offering a curated range of 100% natural and vegan skincare products inspired by the rich tapestry of African heritage. We take pride in harnessing the power of lesser-known African ingredients to provide a holistic approach to skincare, promoting both outer radiance and inner well-being. We envision a world where skincare is a universal practice, breaking through societal norms and embracing everyone, regardless of gender.
Skincare, for us, extends beyond a routine; it's a holistic approach to well-being. We invite you to embark on this journey with us, to discover the beauty of simplicity, the allure of natural ingredients. At Kijate, we celebrate the essence of skincare, where tradition meets innovation, and simplicity meets efficacy.
