Our Story

Xcape is a cosmeceutical skincare brand founded by certified Mediacal Aesthetician, Edith F. Gibson in 2019 after 7 years of clinical research in the Tropics, on issues that plague tropical skin. Having completed clinical research on 7,000 clients and collected 50,000 samples for skin analysis, it was evident that there are 4 main issues that plague black/melanin rich skin (Surface dehydration, Weak elasticity, Over-sebaceous activity, and Hyperpigmentation).

At Xcape, we are fully committed to solving these 4 main issues by formulating products with natural potent ingredients that also treat further issues such as; Acne, dark spots/ blemishes, uneven skin tone, wrinkles and fine lines, oily skin, dry skin, including effects of bleached skin, with our exfoliating, hydrating, moisturizing, brightening and healing active ingredients.

We are also able to customise our products for specific skincare needs as we do not believe 'one size fits all'.

Our goal is to leave our customers feeling beautiful and confident within their skin, and to continue to provide long-term solutions by treating skincare issues at the source.
