In 1970, Dr. Dennis Sepp, an organic chemist, began exploring natural, ayurvedic ingredients for hair and skincare. Dr.Sepp knew that the natural world offered functional ingredients that were better and safer than conventional chemical ingredients. In his first study, he created a water-soluble extract from shikakai powder—ShiKai shampoo. Now, ShiKai manufactures more than 50 products, sold in premium markets all over the world.

Shikakai, or Acacia Concinna, is a small shrub-like tree, which grows in the warm, dry plains of central India. For centuries the people who have had access to this tree have used its pod-like fruit to clean their hair. At ShiKai, we import this shikakai powder from India and use it as the primary cleansing and sudsing agent in our products. Instead of using it in its raw powdered state however, we make an extract, which preserves the beneficial properties and converts shikakai powder into a water-soluble form. This “ShiKai” extract, as we’ve named it, is used in place of soaps and harsh detergents. Natural!
