SAKHI is an organic beauty brand introducing skin and hair remedies based on organic Nigella oil.
Based in Copenhagen, we fuse a contemporary Scandinavian approach to pure, natural and organic beauty care with the rediscovery of timeless Eastern traditions on healing, wellness and beauty derived from the bioactive Nigella Superseed.
Nigella oil is the pure extract of the Nigella Sativa Superseed. It is also known as Blackseed oil and it carries extraordinary anti-oxidant, anti-inflammatory and anti-aging properties. It contains a unique combination of micronutrients and is the main natural source of the very potent phytonutrient called Thymoquinone.
Below we share more about our story, our science and our secret.
SAKHI was founded by 42-year-old Farah Sakhi, an Afghan Persian origin Scandinavian. Farah is gifted with a love for the sciences of pure, natural and organic beauty care as well as a passion for the secrets of ever-young skin and hair.
Born and raised in Copenhagen, she was first drawn to the Scandinavian research tradition within dermatology and nutrition, while studying Medicine at the University of Copenhagen.
Farah always avoided so-called beauty products and supplements with artificial and toxic additives. Instead, she was privileged to grow up with a wealth of potent natural recipes and pure oils to care for her skin and hair.
One such oil, in particular, proved absolutely extraordinary even though it remained curiously absent in mainstream beauty care. Nigella oil - the pure, cold-pressed extract of the Nigella Sativa Superseed - would consistently amaze her clients, when ever Farah shared her bespoke remedies giving rise to radiant and youthful skin and thick healthy hair.
Researching the therapeutic effects of this bioactive Superseed, Farah was inspired to rediscover an entire heritage containing very potent remedies based on pure and organic Nigella oil. On a series of journeys in search of natural healing and integral wellness across Asia, Persia and Africa, she was blessed to learn with practitioners from a wisdom tradition transmitted through more than a thousand years.
SAKHI is the fruit of this fascinating quest.
PURE, NATURAL & ORGANIC BEAUTY
Rooted in a contemporary Scandinavian approach and enriched by a timeless Eastern wisdom tradition, SAKHI has rediscovered, integrated and refined proven remedies in order to provide pure, natural and organic daily skin and hair care, that is both potently effective as well as gently healing.
Organic Nigella is Farah’s secret to a youthful, healthy and balanced lifestyle with the skin and hair that goes along with it. In the Eastern tradition beauty is wholesome, authentic and integral - never artificial. You are invited to experience the benefits of this heritage for your self.
Our remedies are part of an integral lifestyle. They are ideally taken along side a healthy dose of wrestling your toddler, meditating on top of Table Mountain in Cape Town and a sunset reading of the poetry of Rumi as healthy supplements in the quest for living simple, natural beauty - every day.
