YUTY™

How to describe our company? Yuty is a pioneering AI driven beauty marketplace, set to revolutionise the conscious beauty market. Our vision is to empower conscious beauty shoppers to find the right beauty products sustainably - using AI. Combining science and data, Yuty provides customers with personalised recommendations based on their genetics, lifestyle, environment and preferences.

Featured in ELLE, Refinery29, POPSUGAR, Black Beauty & Hair amongst other titles, we aim to help beauty shoppers make informed buying decisions. With over 7.7bn people in the world, there is no ‘one-size-fits-all’ philosophy when it comes to beauty, and everyone should be empowered to find products that work for them. 

Word from the Founder

For too long, beauty consumers including myself have assumed it was our fault when haircare, skincare or cosmetics products didn’t work; compromising with the belief that it was as good as it was going to get! 

Yuty changes that, we have built AI algorithms and curated brands which recognise the underserved. For too long, beauty consumers including myself have listened, without being heard  “do they even know who I am?”

Yuty changes that, we put customers first.  Yuty wants to get to know them.

For too long, an industry which has been built on waste, wasted time, wasted money and unused products.

So much waste! Yuty changes that, by recognising the individual and getting to know them, we can waste no more.

I’m Simi Lindgren, Founder & CEO of YUTY, and we’re the world’s leading conscious beauty destination - where we get to know the customers, help them to discover and buy the right products, without waste. 

Welcome aboard!
