Kamille Herbals is a company founded by Hanaan Msallam a home-educating mother of two.
Hanaan studied Bsc (Hons) Pharmaceutical & Cosmetic Science at De Montfort University in Leicester and furthered her studies with diploma in practical cosmetic science by one of the leading Cosmetic Chemist Perry Rowmanowski.
Making skincare was always been part of her plan. Her main aim is to create safe, halal, cruelty free and efficacious products that gave real results for people with sensitive skin and for curly hair.
Hence she specifically chose to study Pharmaceutical & Cosmetic Science at university. However, as a cosmetic science student, she learnt that a lot of unnecessary artificial ingredients were added to cosmetic and pharmaceutical products to merely bulk the products, which may also have unnecessary side effects.
She also learnt that cosmetic products and medicines contained animal ingredients, mainly pork gelatin which many consumers where not aware of.
As a Muslim woman she was really dismayed by this. She wanted to raise awareness and make a difference to everyone who wanted vegetarian, cruelty free or halal personal care products that actually worked and gave real results.
Hanaan promised not to use or add unnecessary bulky ingredients and more importantly to exclude animal products and alcohol in her products. With this in mind, she set on a quest to start a halal, ethical and cruelty free personal care brand for the conscious consumer like herself. Hence, Kamille Herbals was born.
All Kamille Herbals the products were created to solve a particular skin or hair issue that her close friends and family suffered from. Keeping this in mind each of our products was born, each with a story behind it, each with high quality ingredients and high performance actives that gave real results. Currently, with a growing fan of clients who love our products and keep coming back for more, we couldn’t have been more grateful. We always put our clients at the Centre of what we do by listening to them and working on bringing more amazing products that our clients are asking us for to solve their particular skin and hair issue.
Treat Yourself Guilt free.
We pledge to donate 15% of our profits to building water wells in area where access to clean and safe water limited. Hence, when you buy from us you will be helping make lives better.
We could not have done it without the support of our team.

WATER FOR EVERYONE
Did you know in some areas of Africa women and children travel miles to source drinking water?
We believe everyone should have access to fresh clean water that is why we are actively involved in helping build wells in underdeveloped countries around the world. We pledge to build at least 10 wells in our first 5 years. So far with the help of a few sponsors we have managed to fully build one well in Kenya’s south coast region. The water well is currently serving the local mosque, madrassa, nursery and the local community.

I love! Love! Absolutely love! The Radiance boost elixir I’ve just run out of my bottle and I can’t wait to get my next one. It has helped my dry/ eczema skin heal and stay moisturized. A little does go a long way with this product; it gives my skin a glow and feels really soft. I fully recommend this product!

The Radiance Boost Elixir is by far the best face oil I have ever used, hands down! It has helped clear my dry skin and also helped clear acne scars.

The hair boost is the best hair oil out there and I love the Hibiscus mask too helps the skin feel soft and appear clearer.

The Hibiscus mask is bae, it helps to give a clear and flawless skin with less visible pores. If that’s what your looking for then go for Kamille herbals Hibiscus mask and use it once a week!
Being a medical doctor, i wouldn’t even had the time to think about trying out products that aren’t pharmaceutical! I have been in and out dermatologists not only in Kenya but also India, spent lots of money on consultation fees and expensive skin products for my eczema…. What a waste of time! And one day i came across this product, I am happy to say i no longer have a flaky face! Alhamdulillah! Thanks alot.Dr Mirfat Shatry
Absolutely in love with Kamille Herbals. Such beautiful and nourishing products. I’ve become kind of obsessed.Aishah Rana
The Ghassoul clay is so amazing, I used it as a regular facial pack before my wedding and it cleared my face, and brightened it! I am definitely going to keep using it! I totally recommend Kamille Herbals.Dr Samow
I’ve been using the Radiance Boost Elixir and it is amazing! I have such dry skin that everytime I put make up on with whatever primer it causes my skin to dry out and flake but, when I used the kamille Herbals Radiance elixir and then applied my make up it sat flawlessly. Even when I removed my make up my skin still felt soft, as if didn’t apply make up at all! Best product for sensitive eczema prone skin!Hafsa Begum
The Radiance Boost Elixir has been a lifesaver. I have hormonal issues and had terrible dark flakey smile lines and chin area. I do not know if I’m imagining it but ever since I started using it my complexion has evened out and I’m actually fairer!Nawal Khalfan
I love the Hibiscus Mask and i use it all over my body as a body scrub on a Sunday when i’m having a my me time. I also buy the chamomile & calendula balm for my daughter who has suffered from eczema for years, but she loves the balm as it soothes and relieves her skin, its also helping clear the eczema scars. I will always recommend Kamille Herbals.Rukiya Ashraph
