We know that when our skin feels good, we feel good. As we come out of the wintery months, our skin may be feeling the brunt of the weather change and in need of a little bit of extra care. With its high temperatures in summer, increased levels of humidity and chilly night wind in the winter, taking care of your skin in Qatar is an important part of any self-care routine.

Navigating the beauty market is no easy feat, and with countless products on offer, we’ve taken a look at some of the local favourites. As consumers become more aware of their spending habits and the environmental impact, previous years have seen the trend towards eco-friendly and organic products increase in popularity.

1 - Pida Beauty


Founded by 29-year-old MinKyung Kang, this Korean skincare brand came about after the entrepreneur noticed a large gap in the Middle Eastern beauty market. At the time, Korean products were not as popular and Kang struggled to get her hands on her favourite beauty products, often relying on her mother’s shipments. 

After trying a few mainstream brands, Kang’s sensitive face broke out and developed severe acne, spurring her to study and test different products. The experience pushed her to develop the concept of Pida Beauty a few years later. 

Known for its cruelty free and organic branding, Pida Beauty has grown immensely the past year and is now a trusted and much loved Korean beauty brand in Qatar. Specialising in their personalised skincare consultations, Pida Beauty also hosts bi-monthly workshops so that everyone can benefit from a good skin care regimen.

2 - Ecoterini

Incorporating essential oils, this all natural plant-based skincare line not only smells delicious, but is good for both the skin health and the environment. 

Offering a range of products from massage oils and body scrubs, Ecoterini uses organic ingredients and can often be found at the Farmers Market.

3 - Botany

Botany is a vegan and organic brand founded in Qatar. Taking its inspiration from nature, the brand collaborates with sustainable farmers, artisans and communities around the world to create products while putting an emphasis on sustainability. 

Whether in its hand-picked apricots from Nepal or organic cacao from France, Botany prides itself on ingredients that are hand-picked from sustainable and well-managed suppliers to produce small batches of vegan handcrafted products. 

4 - Velvet Herbs

Another local Qatari brand following the natural and vegan demand is Velvet Herbs with its skin and hair product lines. Offering products free from parabens, synthetic dyes, silicone and alcohol, this cruelty-free company hosts a range of hand-made essentials including facial oils and lash serums. 

El Detox

 Created with the aim of introducing an alternative to the heavily chemicalised lifestyle today, as well as spreading awareness of detoxification in Qatar, El Detox company offers a holistic approach to looking at our bodies today. 

Centred around an ethos of the importance of what is put on the skin, the brand’s founder saw a need for it after struggling with many products, all of which were too harsh for her skin. After noticing a visible improvement in using only organic ingredients and natural sources, the idea for El Detox came to be.
