Aleeza: How it all began…

During one of my travels to Marrakech, I accidently came across two Berber women. They told me about their lives in a women cooperative: a self-sustaining group of women that makes a living by cultivating natural ingredients for cosmetic purposes.

It immediately piqued my interest. The women in this area, even at old age, have such beautiful and radiant skin. How was this possible? What was their secret?

Fortunately, the women imparted their findings to me. Their passion about the beautiful plants they grow was contagious! Back in the Netherlands, I soon planned a new journey to Morocco. During that following trip I visited the biggest agricultural fair in Africa. Entrepreneurs from all sorts showed their goods: exotic natural treasures with wholesome properties.

This trip confirmed my initial feelings when meeting the two Berber women: I have to do something with this!

Immediately after coming back home, I started looking for dermatological experts to work on a new product for the skin. The main ingredient: Prickly Pear oil. I wanted to create a product that was good for the skin, the environment and the women that produce it. And I did it! The skin radiates, the environment is sustained and the women are granted their independence by buying their product.

Aleeza was founded as a result of coincidental meeting. The age-old beauty rituals are preserved in a modern beauty product. I am forever grateful to these women for sharing their secrets with me!
