As a veteran beauty founder and trusted industry voice, Nyakio has launched two successful businesses: her award-winning brand nyakio™, based on her family’s Kenyan roots and beauty secrets that launched in 2002, and inclusive beauty e-commerce destination, thirteen lune, launched with cofounder Patrick Herning in 2020. Thirteen lune launched as the first of its kind, e-commerce destination designed to inspire the discovery of beauty brands created by BIPOC founders that resonate with people of all colors.
