WHO ARE WE
Founder of Khiasi
My job in the fashion industry was high stress with lots of long-haul trips from my home in New York to Europe and Asia, and it began to take a toll on my health. Between airports and hotels, I struggled to find healthy food options and I was often sick because my body wasn’t getting good nourishment. It got to a point where almost every month, I was getting so sick that would knock me out for days - my doctor would prescribe the usual round of antibiotics. I also developed hormonal acne, so it wasn’t just the sickness, but seeing my skin get so bad took a toll my self-esteem. No matter how many products I put on my skin, the acne didn’t go away.
Every trip to the doctor meant more medication, antibiotics and synthetic hormones, which make me feel worse than I was already feeling – not to mention the cost! So I decided to look for alternative options, staying as natural as possible.
I began taking supplements and noting how they made me feel. I educated myself on the properties and benefits of each supplement and gradually built a recipe that kicked my health issues.
Probiotics and prebiotics helped heal my gut after the antibiotics, ginger for that boost of energy and its medicinal properties, turmeric for its anti-inflammatory effect, leafy greens to alkalize my body, milk thistle to cleanse my liver, berries as antioxidants, aloe vera for its healing properties, biotin and Vitamin E for skin, hair and nails and other fruits and veggies for carotenoids and vitamins.
I started to see a massive difference. I stopped getting sick and my skin started to clear. My energy levels went up, and I started to feel great about myself. Each morning I was taking 15 different capsules, and with my work/travel schedule, it just wasn’t working. So it came to me; I needed all those elements in one convenient and travel friendly product. That’s how Khiasi was born.
Together with my husband Nic, we teamed up with my cousin Alex, who is a food engineer – needless to say he knows his stuff when it comes to formulas! It took us over two years to develop Khiasi Beauty Superfood - Our flagship product!
I wanted it in powder form to be mixed into a drink, to create a ritual and a moment of mindfulness, and not just a capsule that you pop in your mouth. For that reason, flavor was a big thing. I knew I didn’t want sugars, sweeteners or flavorings, it had to come from the natural ingredients.
A lot of love and thought went into creating Khiasi Beauty Superfood. We are so proud of the product we’ve created, and it’s delicious! Very mild, almost like a fruit tea, but with a little kick from the turmeric and ginger.
I truly believe beauty starts from below the surface. Feeling good inside empowers you to be your absolute best in life!
