Shiffa arose from the creative vision of Dr Lamees Hamdan, a woman driven by her passion for creating organic, dermatologically-focused products.
Having graduated as a doctor from the Royal College of Surgeons, Dr Lamees went on to develop Shiffa’s very first formula in 2004. That particular product was a pregnancy body oil which she, being pregnant at the time, was able to test on herself. This hands-on approach allowed her to develop the oil into one that was exceptional at hydrating and conditioning a pregnant woman's sensitive skin.
And all Dr Lamees’ hard work was rewarded when the oil met with widespread acclaim. Encouraged, she went on to invest her passions for nature, science and holistic healing into what would become the Shiffa range.
And the name? In this respect, the doctor was influenced by the culture of her native Dubai. Translate Shiffa from Arabic and you’re left with the word ‘healing’, a value that’s right at the heart of this dermatology-orientated collected.
