Our Story

“Zuze & Friends” is new and innovative cosmetic brand for KIDS that collects latest cosmetic product trends in one brand. As we have small kids who enjoy bathing rituals every evening, naturally, there is a need for kids-friendly bathing products.

After long tests and research we came to conclusion that we had to make better and safer products for our kids which we could get in regular department stores. That’s why we created special formulation products that will include mild moisturizing recipes, tested over and over to get satisfying, well being for kids during and after bathing procedures.

Zuze is famous elephant girl from Riga Zoo. She was born in 1990 and was the first newborn elephant in Riga Zoo history. In early 90ies she became beloved by visitors and got huge media attention.
We wanted to bring Zuze’s name alive again, so we decided to name a special cosmetic line made for kids “Zuze & Friends”. Product range includes special bath foams, shampoo, body milk and handmade bath balls with special animal toys inside. These toys are not only FRIENDS of Zuze, but they will become your kids’ friends as well. They will help to learn more about different animal and bug species that live in our world.
