Own Your Beautiful

What’s in a name? Kara Sidai means “I am beautiful” in Kenya’s maasai language. A simple phrase yet so potent. We believe that beauty is a journey starting from within which radiates through your skin.

How many of us, in our deepest of hearts, really believe we are amazing! We invite you to own your beautiful. Embrace your fabulous self.

You are beautiful just the way you are!

Say it loud, say it with us, Kara Sidai, I AM BEAUTIFUL!

Responsibly Sourced - From Farm & Forest

We take care to source our main ingredients from women-led businesses and from suppliers who work with women, farmers and rural communities in Africa, teaching them sustainable harvesting practices of indigenous African plants. By supporting our suppliers, we contribute to increasing incomes for the rural communities they support.

It is important for us to remain connected to our roots in Africa which is where it all began.

Made in Kenya

We are proudly Made in Kenya.

As an independent beauty company, our vision is to support young Kenyans with employment opportunities and the diversification of skills and to support our economy through value-addition of agricultural produce.
