From the dusty dessert plains of Morocco comes a skincare brand that’s changing the world, one bottle at a time.
Founded on the principles of simplicity and transparency, the team behind Akhal are proud skin perfectionists, thoughtful foragers and global citizens.
In indigenous Moroccan, Akhal means ‘Earth’. It’s this simple translation that speaks volumes about the philosophy behind Akhal.
Australian-based but Moroccan-born founder, Myriam Baissa, explains.
“I chose this name as an acknowledgement to Mother Nature, the source of all our products and as a nod to my own Moroccan indigenous heritage.”
Working With Nature
At the heart of the Akhal philosophy is transparency throughout all aspects of the supply chain.
This starts with working alongside growers and their local communities. By making conscious purchasing decisions, you’re supporting positive change in these communities where the Akhal story has unfolded.
Myriam has seen first hand the kind of hardships small farmers face in developing countries during her travels. It’s this awareness that brought home the message.
She had a role to play and it was tracing back to her Moroccan roots that would be her vehicle for change.
“I created Akhal as a vehicle to bring high grade natural skincare to our customers directly from the growers who make it.”
