Once upon a time, there was this little girl, wandering the streets of Marrakech, laughing with her sisters, on her way home to get ready for the traditional familial Shabbat dinner. This girl then became a woman, and this woman became my mom. Her childhood and mine were very different. I was born and raised in Belgium and she was born and raised in Morocco, but our house, on Friday night, smelled nothing like Belgium and everything like spices and family traditions. So, growing up, it was only natural that I became a foodie. In my early twenties, I, who had never shown any interest for cooking before, decided that I wanted to master the use of spices and herbs to, one day, be as good of a cook as my mom (which clearly is impossible, plus I’d rather eat her cooking anyway).
When reading about spices and herbs, I also discovered that a lot of them were used for health. Following this discovery, I’ve spent the past few years researching every bit of information I could find about herbs, essential oils, vegetable oils and vegetable butters for health and beauty. And now, I am even certified in Organic Skincare Formulation and Organic Cosmetic Science with Formula Botanica ! I find it fascinating how nature can help improve our health, heal us and highlight our already existing beauty ! And if, while doing that, we can avoid destroying everything and everyone around us, well, sign me in !
So this is how Roze Mountain was born. A family-oriented business created during the long and numerous nights where I couldn’t find sleep, dreading, dreaming, hoping… I spent years, weeks, days, thinking about what would spring me out of bed every single day without getting bored, giving up or simply hating my job. I stressed over the fear that I would end up living a life I hate. But now, I feel like I found it. Thus, creating this company is both my biggest fear and my biggest accomplishment so far.
In reality, I couldn’t have made anything possible without my relatives who all pitched in to make this come true. So for me, this company is not just business. For me, it’s as personal as it gets. I love what I do, I love creating products that can be useful and harmless at the same time ! It gives me a sense of accomplishment. Every product I make, I make it with passion and dedication in the hopes that you, my current and future customers, will like it and discover a new, ethical and natural way of taking care of yourself ! For all these reasons, I will always make sure that you are satisfied every time you come here.
So I hope you will enjoy your journey throughout this website as much as I enjoy sharing part of my life with you !
P-s: if you know you’re allergic to something and there is a product that you’d still really like to enjoy, drop me an email and we’ll arrange a customized version for you !
Pp-s: Because I use natural ingredients and all the products are freshly made, they have a different (i.e shorter) shelf life than the products that one can find in the traditional cosmetic industry ; so don’t skip the products’ description as I mention everything you need to know.
