What do you make / sell?.
We sell organic, natural health and beauty products, sunnah foods and modest clothing.
How did you end up making /selling the things you make/sell i.e. what made you go into it?
We started using natural organic and sunnah products ourselves, for health and well being benefits. What better way than the Sunnah way [sunnah being the way of the prophet of Islam, Muhammed, may Allah’s peace be upon him]. We would often get asked about what we use on our skin. People were surprised and impressed by the results. We realised that there was a demand for sunnah and organic beauty products and started selling to meet those demands.
As for the clothing, again, it started with us observing a modest, Islamic lifestyle. As part of that we dressed in modest outfits. We realised that modest clothing does not have to be black or white burqas and abayas. A Muslima can dress mmodestly and still feel good about it. Our friends and family were impressed with the outfits we put to together and enquired about where we got them from. Some asked if we could get it for them. It sort of started from there: people asked and we supplied. Most of what we wore was either designed by ourselves or from unique stores suppliers and designers from around the world.
How do you make it / where do you get the inspiration?
We make most of the natural beauty products ourselves or source from organic fair trade companies and producers. We also regularly travel to Morocco and source the products ourselves from ethical genuine sources. Our Argan oil is one of our popular products and as we all know, the most genuine Argan oil comes from Morocco.
What do you like about the things you make / sell?
We believe our products are of a high quality and we ensure its quality by making sure we source from reputable companies, producers such as farms and manufacturers. We truly believe that Natural is always best. It worked for centuries and it will do for many more centuries to come. It is more sustainable and in many cases safer for the consumer and more profitable for the producer.
