Nikel Cosmetics, an established international brand with roots in Croatia, has grabbed the attention of many South Africans, including top bloggers and celebrities. 

Its unique blend of active plant ingredients and modern cosmetic technology make it a must-have for those in the know.

The brainchild of acclaimed scientist MPharm Mirjana Brlečić, Nikel Cosmetics was established 14 years ago and has won many accolades since, including ‘best moisturizer’ at the 2018 Elle beauty awards.

Brlečić gained valuable insight while working extensively in selling luxury skincare products, and realised that many luxury skin products seemed to be causing skin issues rather than combating these ailments. Pairing this knowledge with her scientific expertise, Brlečić established the Nikel Cosmetics line, focusing on luxurious modern textures and products that work in synchronicity with the skin.

“We realised that Nikel Cosmetics with its active plant ingredients was well suited to the needs of South Africans and their skincare requirements,” says Brlečić, making particular reference to South Africa’s sunny climate.

Siobhan Yeatman, the creative energy behind Sugar & Spice Beauty and Lifestyle blog, is a fan of Nikel Evening Primrose Oil.

“It smells like sweet oranges, and is lovely and nourishing, yet it absorbs into the skin so easily, leaving no greasy residue. My skin is happy and glowing,” she says. 

Brlečić recognises that South Africans “are perceptive to natural cosmetics and strive to have a healthy skin and lifestyle – a perfect fit with the ethos of Nikel Cosmetics.”

Nikel Cosmetics are available at Zando and Beauty Worx
