How We Began
Who Are We?
Growing up, Aly had constantly been told about the health + vitality of people in the Himalayan region. He knew that more and more people were looking for tranquility and an equilibrium in their hectic lifestyle, so he decided to capture the secrets of the Himalayas and use this to develop a brand that would offer an affordable and effective solution.
After months of research, rigorous testing and clinical trials, Aly uncovered how this seemingly ordinary Himalayan Water was in fact so powerful.
The idea of bottling up the natural benefits of this water into a skincare line was suddenly born.
Working with expert French skincare formulators to combine Himalayan Spring Water with powerful plant-based ingredients to create natural products that tackle all skin types + concerns.
“Growing up with connections to Pakistan, on frequent trips back I keep hearing about the curative, treatment type powers of various ingredients, substances and botanicals from the Northern region.
Being fortunate enough to have travelled the world and live abroad, I realised that more and more people were looking for a more holistic solution to their everyday lifestyle stresses, whether that’s skincare, supplements, or dietary needs.
Realising that there is a value in the vitality and simplicity of life that the Himalayas bring from its purity, I decided that I wanted to create a unique brand that harnesses the simplicity, vitality and the power of the Himalayas and the Northern region and put that in a bottle that can be used to address modern concerns where people are searching for equilibrium. It seems that modern lifestyles have created an imbalance in this mad, crazy world that we live in and my aim is to help people address this through ancient beauty wisdom.“
