Our ingredients

We love the Middle East, and want to share the ingredients of the region with the world.

When formulating a product, we keep the following principles in mind: 

All our products reflect the rich heritage of the region. 

We want our customers to feel they're indulging themselves when they use any of our products. 

We want customers to have confidence that what they're using is kind to their skin and kind to the planet.  

Each ingredient is carefully selected with the above principles in mind. From fresh and locally sourced camel milk to regional favourites like sidr oil and Omani frankincense. All wholesome, traditional ingredients which pack a powerful punch in terms of what they do for the skin and hair. 

Our star ingredient

Camel Milk

Whether or not Cleopatra bathed in camel milk is debatable. But one thing is sure, camel milk truly is a special ingredient. Rich in Alpha-Hydroxy Acids and vitamins and loaded with anti-ageing and anti-inflammatory properties, it nourishes the skin and boosts its immunity. We’re happy to let you experience its goodness through our range of products. 

Packed with vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants, camel milk offers deep hydration, promotes skin renewal, and protects against environmental stressors. Its gentle exfoliating properties help reveal smoother, more radiant skin, making it a skincare essential with proven benefits.

Omani Frankincense

Locally known as luban, Omani Frankincense is a marvel of nature. It’s thought that frankincense can help regenerate skin cells, reduce scars and blemishes, and prevent premature ageing. It also tightens, tones and lifts skin while enhancing and improving its elasticity.

Its astringent qualities help minimize pores and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, while its healing properties aid in the repair of damaged skin cells.

An ancient remedy


Indigenous to the mountains and deserts in the Arabian Gulf, the sidr tree contains calcium, iron and magnesium, among other beneficial nutrients. Sidr oil, extracted from sidr leaves, has been used for centuries to maintain a healthy scalp, keep hair and skin clean, and strengthen the body’s immune system.
