After years of work, Yangu Beauty is not just a Dallas-based, African-owned skincare company, but as of November, they were one of the few luxury skincare lines for women of color available online at NeimanMarcus.com.
Gumbo spoke with NBC 5 Today anchor Laura Harris about the road to this point and the reason representation in the beauty space is so important.
