Agasaya: beauty products of rare purity
Quebec brand AGASAYA firmly believes that skin care products should contain no more than five (all natural) ingredients. Find out more about these beauty products of rare purity.
Founded in 2014 by Camélia Bounhar, AGASAYA stands out for its minimalist approach towards skin care. Indeed, these products contain less than five ingredients each: “Reducing the number of ingredients allows us to fully enjoy their benefits,” says the founder. Another distinguishing feature: AGASAYA products are made with rare ingredients of high purity. Rhassoul clay, prickly pears and Barbary fig oil are all reminiscent of Camélia Bounhar’s Moroccan origins. She insists on working with local suppliers and requests only the purest and freshest ingredients. Moreover, AGASAYA uses 100% recycled dark glass bottles – known to block UV rays that can damage the antioxidant properties of formulas and reduce its shelf life – thus preserving the purity of ingredients and ensure their effectiveness.
In order to help women feel beautiful and strong, 10% of AGASAYA’s profits are donated to various charities that defend women’s rights, gender equality and access to education like UN Women, HeForShe or the Canadian Women’s Foundation.
