Sure, you’ve got enough bath products to last seven lifetimes, but if you’re like us, you can’t resist one like Nyakio — an assortment of lotions, scrubs, and candles with African origins. ”The whole line stems from watching my mom boil coffee beans and making scrubs in the ’70s,” says Kenyan creator Nyakio Kamoche, whose spicy formulas are flying off shelves at L.A.’s Apothia at Fred Segal and Seattle’s Zebra Club. Hilary Swank loves the Coffee & Sugar Body Scrub ($45), Will & Grace’s Megan Mullally favors the Grapefruit Tarragon Body Creme ($32), and Selma Blair is partial to the Mombassa candle ($28). Coming soon: a bigger skin-care collection. ”We definitely want the line to grow,” says Kamoche. ”Good thing we’ve got the secret, ancient formulas.”
