ABOUT US

WHAT IS HAMMAMII?

The essence of the traditional hammam is nurture and purification. Its rituals deliver a memorable sensory experience that has cleansed and nourished the body for centuries. Hammamii is a blend of this timeless beauty tradition with a modern luxury twist.

This authentic spa range is freshly made in the UAE using only all natural and quality ingredients found locally within the region, such as Camel’s milk from the Dubai desert, dates from Ras Al Khaimah, salts drawn from the Arabian Sea in Abu Dhabi, preserved lemons, Sumac and the traditional Arabian spice Za’atar. Hammamii uses organic ingredients taking full advantage of their naturally derived vitamins and minerals, skin, hair and body.

The entire range is developed to be used not only inside the hammam, but also in your own bath. It is divided into 5 collections and has been hand-crafted for the needs of every skin type. By using raw, frangrance-free ingredients, the scents and textures are appropriate for both men and women, young and old. Therefore, the products are suitable for the entire family.

But, best of all, because the ingredients are sourced and produced locally, the Hammamii collection has been positioned at a price point of accessible luxury. More than a brand, it is a lifestyle that honors the culture of traditional techniques and treatments of the Hammam with a unique and modern twist.

OUR MISSION

Our mission is to create hammam inspired skincare products and treatments, using locally sourced ingredients from the Emirates and provide a uniquely authentic spa experience of modern luxury while embracing the ancient traditions of the hammam.

OUR PHILOSOPY

We strive to maintain the highest level of quality by providing a lifestyle that is exclusively Hammamii, preserving the traditions of the ancient hammam and adding the modern luxury of our brand. With this in mind, we ensure that all our products, treatments and partnered hotels & spas meet our defined standards.

Our ingredients are hand-picked, fresh and sourced locally, taking advantage of the unexplored regional herbs and spices of North Africa and the Middle East. We greatly value all the ingredients that the region has to offer, and put in great effort to source our raw materials with highest active properties for the benefit of our clients.

Aside from the authenticity of our products and rituals, we’ve mindfully developed indigenous luxury treatments to invoke a lasting Arabian sensory and olfactory journey. Our utmost priority is to ensure that our labour of love and passion carries through the Hammamii experience.

We strongly believe that our company is only as strong as what we stand for, and how accurately the people who run it represent that. We instill confidence, knowledge and excellence within all aspects of our service, and we aspire to share these characteristics with the people who work with us.

As a company founded by a woman, it is essential that we support and encourage the development of several rural women’s cooperatives. We not only cultivate our raw materials, we also strive to establish sustainable relationships that enrich the lives of both families and communities.
