ABOUT SIMKHA

Welcome to this page about SIMKHA. My name is Muriel Christel Koucoi and I am the founder of the SIMKHA organic cosmetics brand. I am a medical biologist and epidemiologist by training but also a mom which is passionate about the formulation of skincare products. I firmly believe that beauty comes first and foremost through overall well-being. Through the SIMKHA natural skincare brand, I want above all to promote the well-being and health of the skin with natural ingredients.  Did you know that SIMKHA’ means joy or happiness in Hebrew? Thank you for visiting my shop and loving our proudly Canadian products.

The story behind SIMKHA

SIMKHA Biocosmétiques is a Camadian brand that specializes in the manufacture of natural, vegan and cruelty-free certified skincare products. It was following my son Lorenzo’s skin problems that I made the choice to turn to natural and organic cosmetics. As I struggled to find satisfaction in the existing offer, I had the idea of drawing inspiration from the homemade natural cosmetics recipes of my mother, who is a biology professor. It is thanks to this transmission of ancestral know-how between mother and daughter, and to my knowledge of chemistry, that I was able to create my first body butters successfully. I started to receive orders from my relatives who encouraged me to start my own skincare brand. C’est ainsi que j’ai fondé SIMKHA en 2018.
