Bahiyyah is an all natural skincare line developed using indigenous African ingredients to hydrate and moisturize your skin. The motherland have a various number of trees and plants that have been used for centuries by my ancestors to keep their skin protected from the harsh desert conditions.
Bahiyyah was created out of a need and desire for an all natural alternative to commercial skincare for dry skin. After moving cross country from Michigan to Arizona, my skin has suffered tremendously from the climate change and hard water. Being a self taught herbalist, as well as conscious of what I put on my skin, I began infusing olive oil with herbs to promote healing dry irritated skin. After infusing the oils for one to three months, I would then use the infused oil to mix with African Shea Butter and produce cold processed soap. The results were wonderfully beneficial to my skin, as well as those I shared with.
All of our products are handmade in small batches and are sourced from nature. Most of our butters and oils are sourced directly from Africa and are fair trade to ensure the men and women producing the resources are paid fairly for their hard work. Because our skin absorbs more than 60% of what is applied to it, our products do not contain any preservatives, petroleum, parabens, phthalates, mineral oil, silicone or any other unhealthy ingredients.
