About us

You very often read stories about successful entrepreneurs who started their businesses in their college dorm rooms. That's not our story. You even hear those heart warming tales of friends starting a business venture together over cups of steaming caramel lattes. That's not us either.

Shades of Mink was created solely with YOU in mind.

Our founder, Yasmin struggled with Acne prone skin for many years. After years of self research, product testing, home remedies and a few beauty diplomas later (including facial therapy, dermatology and medical aesthetics) she was able to completely change her skin. The dramatic change in ones skin health can spark a lot of questions (as it did) so she decided to make the products available to you.... and that's how it started.

We were one of the first companies in South Africa to bring in Asian Sheet masks and the first to bring in the brand that we currently stock. We strive to continually to bring new and exciting products to the South African Market.

At Shades of Mink we have realised that finding great skin care can be hard but finding expert advice can prove to be even more difficult. Shades of Mink pairs great skin care products and amazing sheet masks with expert skin advice and product recommendations. We place a lot of emphasis on customer care so if there's anything you need, please don't hesistate to contact us.
