Rahua, known for their pure ingredients and unparalleled performance — would not be available today if not for a marvellous confluence of events.
Fabian Lliguin, a renowned hairstylist and colourist in New York City was visiting the Amazon rainforest as an environmentalist, educating indigenous people about their land and human rights when he realized he was surrounded by women with fantastically long, lustrous hair that cascaded past their waists. AND THE SECRET? The secret, the women told Fabian, was RAHUA OIL. For centuries the members of the tribe, who live deep within the rainforest, had relied on this to nourish their hair and skin.
Rahua Oil is produced by the Quechua-Shuar tribe in the same complex, ritualistic, and sustainable fashion it has been for generations.
Today, more than 500 families from the Quechua-Shuar, Achuar, and neighbouring tribes work with the brand to cultivate the rainforest grown ingredients used in the Rahua Hair and Body care collections.
