Our story

The name Kaniz is a remembrance and a thank-you to my grandmother who inspired the brand with her love of the cultural melting pot of Zanzibar itself – a nation which brings together beauty, health, and wellness traditions from Africa, India, Oman and Persia.

For her, the path to personal happiness was to enrich the lives of others by helping them to feel, live, and look their best.

At Kaniz, we continue her tradition today.
