A range of certified organic, eco-ethical and halal-compliant skincare products that bring pure, environmentally friendly products to all.

In Mah Hussain-Gambles’ world, science does not have to be exclusively technical or industrial, it can be pure and ethical. As a trained pharmaceutical chemist, she drew on this reasoning to launch Saaf Pure Skincare, a line of products that takes its name from the Persian word for pure. ‘I first started developing creams for my husband, who has very sensitive skin and needed pure ingredients. Having set up a website to help people track the claims certain beauty products make, such as being fair trade or organic, I knew just how many lacked any kind of stamp or proof to back up their claims.’
