The Brand Bio

Founder:
Sofia Latif
Established:
2017
Headquarters:
England, UK
Country of Manufacture:
England, UK

Sofia Latif™ is pro-ageing, simplified skincare, connecting women with their raw beauty. Nurturing an attitude of inner confidence and knowing, a slowing down and an understanding that their raw beauty is enough.

The brand's blends respect the differences in skin that come with age, regenerating and strengthening with pure seeds and flower oils. A fusion of Indian and African wisdom brought to life through experience, hand-crafted in small batches with a planet-conscious ethos.

Sofia Latif's mission is to give women the confidence to show off their skin and hair as these change with age, without theneed for complicated beauty routines. Using the time at the end of each day to reconnect mind to senses, soothing mood and skin at the same time is a more holistic approach to well-being.

Pro-ageing, simplified skincare. Vegan, waterless, cruelty-free. Made in the UK.
