About us

Hello! My name is David Ajena, and the story of Nambi's founding started just before the Covid-19 pandemic (what timing, right? 😂). It all started when I visited my relatives in Uganda.

I was fascinated by my cousin's glowing skin, and she told me that she used only organic, vegan, and natural products without any chemical additives. That was my 'aha' moment.

I realized that such products are hard to come by here in Sweden, especially for people with melanin-rich skin, and I saw it as an opportunity to offer something more than just products. I wanted to create an experience that highlights the natural beauty in all of us – and so Nambi was born.

 I got in touch with the company that made her products, and a few months later they landed in Sweden in the middle of an ongoing pandemic 😅. Add to that the fact that I had no previous experience in marketing, business operations, graphic design, or anything really related to business. However, I was lucky to have something that was even more important: a strong passion and an incredible will 💪.

I'll be honest and say that starting a business in the middle of a pandemic wasn't easy, but I was lucky to be surrounded by amazing friends who supported me with advice and their unique talents to bring Nambi to life.

My constant goal with Nambi has been to not just create a regular store, but to build a family. I took a big step towards this goal when I came into contact with Kids of Uganda, a charity that helps the most vulnerable children in the country. Lread more about them here.
