Meet Kandaka Safia, Luxury Skincare made from Ancient Sudanese Beauty Secrets

Kandaka Safia is a clean beauty line of products created for Queens from ingredients that are certified organic and ethically sourced from Sudan to illuminate, hydrate, repair, and brighten skin.

Sudanese women worldwide rely on traditional treatments passed down over generations for opulent skin and improved health. Daughters of Sudan are familiar with the dukhan and dilka beautification rituals. Brides customarily prepare for their wedding day weeks in advance by literally bathing in smoke allowing them to be identifiable to their grooms by their rich fragrance.

The dukhan smoke bath is a slow process where a woman covers her body with rich aromatic oils, allowing the soot from the burning perfumed acacia wood and sandalwood to form a thick layer on her skin. On the 40th day, the thick sooty layer is then peeled off revealing glowing skin underneath. Wood from the dukhan along with wheat powder is then used to make the dilka, a Sudanese body scrub. Wrapped in cloth and baked over a few days, the dilka is mixed with orange rinds, tumeric, hilba herb, potatoes, and carrots. Dilka not only cleanses, but also removes dry skin.

If you don't have access, time, or the opportunity to experience the Sudanese dukhan and dilka, lavish in the luxurious Kandaka Safia skincare line of cleansers, oils, body butters, scrubs, and masks.

Kandaka Safia translates to Pure Queen, and after trying the Lemon Exfoliating Soap Face and Body Bar, the Jasmine Body Butter, and the Honey Lakhokha, my skin felt like it had just received the royal treatment.

Paired with the handmade complimentary loofah soap pouch, the Lemon Exfoliating Soap for face and body creates a gentle lather that removes make-up and other impurities and left my skin clean, soft, and smooth. The soap bar leaves skin lightly fragrant with a citrus lemon scent.

If you are looking for a premium deep moisturizer that wonderfully softens, smooths dry cracked skin, and offers therapeutic benefits then you are looking for Kandaka Safia's assortment of body butters. The Jasmine Body Butter is this amazing skin conditioner made of Sudanese shea butter that prevents and treats dryness. It gave my skin a refined healthy glow free from toxins and harmful chemicals because these products are all-natural. The infusion of jasmine oil is an ideal unmistakable and alluring fragrance for the senses. Not only are the senses stimulated, jasmine oil also addresses insomnia to provide peaceful rest, enhances libido, and improves overall mood to alleviate depression.

Unlock the Sudanese beauty secrets with the Honey Lakhokha. Very similar to the dilka, the lakhokha polishes away uneven and discolored skin to perfume, brighten, and smooth the skin. Again, made with ethically sourced all-natural ingredients, the lakhokha is for every woman who wants supple scented skin. This luxury treatment leaves you feeling pampered and romantic at the same time. Lakhokha is a great head-to-toe exfoliating treatment for flaky, aging, dehydrated skin.
