Yasmin Karimi (THE BRAND) was established in 2014. The idea however was born by Yasmin Karimi (THE WOMAN) many years before. As a child Yasmin was enchanted by beauty and the many forms it took.
Yasmin marvelled in the elegance of the long, luscious hair of the women she met whilst travelling. She watched as they cooked a mixture of herbs and oils which they would then use in their hair overnight. This fascination, laced with a young girl’s fairytale imagination is where it all began. In the years that followed, equipped with family recipes, Yasmin set out to forge the ultimate hair care experience
In 2014 with law and business degrees under her belt and growing ever more tired of the corporate world, it was time for Yasmin to take her passion full-time… The Brand Yasmin Karimi was launched
We originated with our acclaimed Hair Treatment Oils which soon developed into a full hair regime, to the delight of our loyal following. A meticulously curated and powerful skincare line followed to high demand and we have now ventured into the art of bath and body. As we continue to innovate and expand , Yasmin’s philosophy of 360 degree self care remains as true as ever. We promise effective products with emotional benefits that deliver on their promises.
Healing Beauty Healing Souls
‘Your purchase is helping an orphan’s life become beautiful’
As a charitable soul, Yasmin knew that these values had to be reflected in her business. Yasmin started her brand with a promise and commitment to continue her philanthropic work... which is why with every YK purchase we donate 1% towards foundations improving the lives of orphans around the world. So far we have contributed towards the completion of a school in Pakistan that provides education and a haven to street orphans aged 4-11 years.

100% Made in England
Inspired by South Asia, Made in England
As a child Yasmin was enchanted by the beauty of the women she met on her travels to South Asia, awed in particular to the elegance of their long and luscious hair. An appreciation of the beauty rituals of these women grew into a fascination of the natural oils, herbs and botanicals which they cherished. Whilst our products have been carefully curated and made in England, they're all inspired by South Asia.
