Shiffa, a word that means health in Arabic, is a highly acclaimed luxury skincare line from Dubai whose origins are firmly rooted in Arabic traditions and whose key ingredients are from the Middle Eastern region. HEALTH speaks with Dr. Lamees Hamdan, Founder and CEO of Shiffa to learn more about her luxurious organic products.
“I have been developing organic products backed by the principles of dermatology since 2004. Shiffa’s first product was a unique pregnancy body oil that I was able to test myself at the time. After the success of this first product, I went ahead and embarked on a complete range of skincare products underpinned by the principles of merging science with nature. It was then that in 2004, Shiffa was launched.”
“Just some of the key ingredients found in Shiffa products that have been used traditionally in this region include: argan oil, chamomile, dates, jasmine, Aloe Vera, prickly pears, and black seed oil.”
“A brand that is both high end and luxurious, yet natural and organic, Shiffa’s facial care products in general are our best selling products, as the face is the major concern for any woman.”
