About Us

HE• KI• MA: (Swahili) WISDOM

HEKIMA Skincare is the premium body butter and balm product line designed to bring the comfort of mature women to the forefront of the self-care movement. 

After the founder lost her grandmother who was the most sophisticated, sassy, renaissance woman with the softest skin, Hekima Skincare became a dream. The company started as an idea in 2015 as a way to honor the legacy of strong resilient women in our families from the past. That strength and resilience has been passed down to generations of women now and in the future. 

In 2018, HEKIMA went from being a dream to being a reality. HEKIMA was developed after many late nights and early mornings of perimenopause hot flashes, interrupted sleep and mixing and testing ingredients to make sure this skin care line provided the best quality product with the essence of luxury and love for mature and melanated women who deserve products that are good to them and good for them. Every woman can take care of their beautiful skin while preserving their pretty with HEKIMA. 

With the use of natural butters and oils rich in vitamin E, antioxidants, and fatty acids sourced from Canada, India, China, Morocco, Brazil and Sweden, HEKIMA Skin Care commits to helping protect and calm skin irritations, block moisture loss, and cultivate healthy and happy lives one container at a time. 

Whether you’re traveling the world or heading to the grocery store, it’s safe to say that the HEKIMA SKIN CARE you choose will keep your skin moisturized, hydrated, and glistening throughout your journey.


We promise to keep culture, community, and compassion for melanated women at the forefront of our hands as we combine, mix, and package each container of balm and butter with luxury and love.
