At the tender age of only 16, Snikiwe Xaba, a young girl from KZN, started her own skincare product called Natural Me.
She started her business in December 2017 and has been working on expanding it ever since. Snikiwe, who was only in grade 10 at the time, started making her own beauty products because she had trouble with her own skin.
She comes from a poor background and couldn’t afford to buy the expensive products other teens her age were using. Instead of letting that get her down, she decided to create her own products. Her innovative idea ultimately led to her starting her very own business.
