About us

L’Araboutique® (The Arabian Boutique), previously known as Azara Beautique, is a British natural skincare and haircare brand that was born in Saudi Arabia, the heart of The Middle East. My mother (Dr. Samira Zaidan) and I (Dr. Mona Alyedreessy) opened this online boutique in the UK in the summer of 2017 due to being proud of our rich cultural Saudi Arabian heritage and to spread global awareness of the natural treasures found in Saudi Arabia's holy lands and the lands of its neighbouring Arabian countries. We proudly offer you the purest natural and halal skincare and haircare products, created and handmade by ourselves with exquisite Arabian ingredients in our workshop that is based in Buckinghamshire, a county that is situated in the heart of a beautiful English countryside. 

My mother was the first practicing female homeopath in Saudi Arabia and her knowledge collected over more than 20 years spans across all practices and history of natural medicine for daily health and beauty care. Together with the knowledge passed down from elders, from Prophetic medicine and centuries-old research of herbs and plants by Andalusian botanist scholars, her research has inspired our selection of sacred and valuable ingredients. Our traditional beauty secrets, ingredients and recipes all derive from the beautiful act of passing knowledge on from mothers to daughters so that wisdom is never lost and travels across generations and time. Together we have dedicated time and effort travelling across the mountains, deserts and lustrous valleys of Oman, Saudi Arabia, Lebanon, Morocco, the United Arab Emirates and Yemen to find extra virgin olive oil from Palestine and Syria, organic camel milk and mineral-rich Zamzam water from Saudi Arabia, the finest royal green hojari frankincense from Salalah in Oman, fragrant pink roses and ajwa dates from Saudi Arabia’s city of Madina and rich organic sidr honey from Yemen, which are only a few of the luxurious and beneficial ingredients used in our products. We take great pride in working with and not against nature and being the first and only natural skincare and haircare brand in the world that makes unique products with Zamzam water from Saudi Arabia's holiest city Makkah, which has a higher mineral content than any other kind. 

We believe that what you apply to your skin should work to nourish and nurture your body from within, which is why we work exclusively with small local family businesses in villages, mountains and deserts who devote themselves to growing high quality natural and organic products that are free from harmful chemical contamination. With our partners, we have built fairness and trust as we cherish the art and dedication of those who are passionate about what they grow, make and sell and we wish to represent them in our brand. Reviving traditions and supporting local farmers doesn't stop at our ingredients, we place enormous value on dedicated independent work and much of our traditional packaging is handmade by skilled Arabian artisans working from their homes, creating beautiful unique pieces.
