Ankaa Founder Story

At Ankaa, we believe in using powerful botanical ingredients to nourish your skin.

Ankaa was born in response to my personal skincare challenge six years ago after I had a chemical peel that burned my sensitive skin. When I rushed to my makeup counter for relief, I hesitated while looking at their expensive skincare products. Most of them were made from ingredients that could further damage my skin, including alcohol, fragrances, and parabens. I was shocked that, in this day and age, an appropriate skincare product for sensitive skin hadn’t been created yet. I knew the time was right -- I had to create something new and nourishing not only for me but also for others who were born with sensitive skin just like me. 

I consulted with my parents, both experienced doctors, and decided to embark on a journey to create the best all-botanical skincare serum and moisturizer in the skincare market.

Working with the world’s leading scientists, chemists, and dermatologists and my partner Adrian, we created and launched Ankaa, an all-natural skincare line, in 2019. Unlike other natural skincare products, Ankaa sources its ingredients from the most extreme environments in the world, ranging from the tops of the Himalayan Mountains to the depths of the oceans. These plant-based ingredients contain unique chemical compounds with rejuvenating properties that help them thrive in their native environments. Once combined into our science-backed formulas, these ingredients work deep into your skin to provide 24-hour hydration that lifts, firms, and tightens all facial zones, resulting in healthy vibrancy and a natural glow. 

Ankaa’s key ingredients have shown remarkable clinical results. Swertia chirata, a flowering plant that grows in the cold, oxygen-deprived Himalayas, is amazingly resilient and self-healing. In skincare studies, Swertia chirata has been shown to significantly reduce wrinkles and fine lines around the lips after just one month. Similarly, laminaria saccharina, a powerful algae from the bottom of the northern Atlantic and Pacific oceans, has demonstrated great efficacy in the reduction of sun damage, dark spots, and skin tone.

We are proud to have created skincare infused with patent-pending, clinically-proven botanical extracts designed to combat aging and promote hydration, even skin texture, and boost rejuvenation. The best part is that our customers overwhelmingly agree, testifying their amazing results after using Ankaa products. 

Ankaa skincare is made in America, recommended by leading dermatologists, and is vegan, cruelty-free, fragrance, and paraben-free.

With love,
