Home to a hand-picked collection of natural beauty products, the Kuwait Swiss Center carries some of the world’s finest organic beauty products for the discerning woman who cares about her natural beauty, without stressing her skin with harmful chemicals. In our day and age, our lifestyles form as a major stress factor that affect the appearance and behaviour of our bodies and minds, so why not take the advice of certified Dr. Ghanima Al-Sharhan, a pharmaceutical and beauty specialist who has spent her life curating the world’s most refined products to deliver the promise of natural beauty? Located on the mezzanine floor of Al-Salhiya complex, we paid Dr. Al-Sharhan a visit to explore what her beauty haven has to offer.
A relaxing space, elegantly decorated by the luxurious beauty products and supplies on display, speaking to Dr. Al-Sharhan about the fine ranges of beauty products was absolutely enlightening, as her selection is purely hand-picked based on her long experience in the beauty and pharamceutical industry. The Kuwait Swiss Center offers high-end skin care products, perfumes, cosmetics and beauty accessories, bath accessories, specialized hair care products, as well as chic jewelry collections and gifts.
From handmade Bukhour, or sandalwood, fragrances to other designer perfumes that she’s created and collected herself, Dr. Al-Sharhan’s selection is inimitable. I truly have never smelled such pleasant scents at other department stores. She comments, “My mother used to make her own ‘Teeb’, or ‘Oud’ frangrances, so I definitely picked up her nose for creating signature fragrances. Besides, commercial products rarely employ pure perfumes nowadays. Our selection is sourced from the finest merchants.” Make sure you check out the handbag sized range of frangrances!
Also an exclusive agent for brands like Bio Suisse+, La Vallee from Switzerland, the Spanish miracle hair loss range Natur Vital, Greece’s Flax’s Clean Skin range, as well as the Italian Fontana Contarini skin care and cosmetic range, amongst many others, I was obviously spoilt for choice about where to begin! In the middle of the boutique lies a comfy and plush leather sofa set, so one can sit and leisurely chat with the trained staff on hand to help with any inquires.
La Vallee, an innovative skin care range based on combining nature’s resources with the latest developments in cosmetic technology, is surely not to be missed, with active elements are sourced from the heart of the Swiss Alps’ botanical wonders. The patented six elements include natural spring water mineral deposits for improved skin texture and renewal, Natural Spring Spa Water, butterfly tree nectar for absolute skin nourishment, a soothing essential oil complex, The Hexapeptide System, a natural anti-aging ingredient that is likened to Botulinum toxin or Botox, Thymus Vulgaris or thyme that is a catalyst for skin renewal.
Dr. Al-Sharhan also holds the Bio Suisse+ range close to her heart and mind, as she has supported this brand since its early beginnings in Kuwait. “The products are truly fantastic, from the organic food supplements that are unmatched in terms of natural ingredients like imporant Omega-3 fatty acids, and the multivitamin A-Z formula found in Maxvita, to the skin treatment ranges focused on eliminating acne and clarifying the skin.”
Although all of Dr. Al-Sharhan’s products caught my attention, as I never truly realized the abdundance of organic beauty products available in Kuwait until I entered the Kuwait Swiss Center, I am so impressed with the Flax Range and the Natur Vital Hair Loss range. With the Greek brand, Flax Clean Skin, an assortment of natural products for the face, hair and body are created from the purest olive oil, grapeseed oil, as well as green tea and other herbal extracts. The Natur Vital range, a complete hair loss system, serves as a credible, and, from what we’ve seen from our friends who have tried the range, successful product.
