“At SYKEA our mission is to provide people with an extensive range of high-quality, cruelty-free, and vegan skincare, formulated using highly effective active ingredients for the perfect day and night Skincare routine. We believe your skincare should be as good for the planet as it is for your skin.”
We are proud to say that we are 100% vegan and cruelty-free, which is an integral part of who we are. Our founder Sarah, has been vegan since the age of 15. She made the decision to go vegan after learning about the methods of farming and animal cruelty within the meat industry, which had her appalled.
We strongly believe it is possible to enjoy life without making the planet suffer. There is absolutely no justification in breeding animals for cosmetic testing or using them as an ingredient.
We believe conscious consumerism should deliver the same quality, if not better, as mass produced commercial personal care products. Therefore, we use the finest quality ingredients available, manufacture products that are safe and kind to the user and are always striving to improve our brand and products we offer.
Beginning its life in a grandmother’s kitchen, SYKEA was founded by Sarah, on a mission to create cruelty-free and vegan skincare that delivers impressive results.
SYKEA was stemmed from a problem Sarah suffered when she was younger. She suffered greatly from sensitive skin during her teenage years. Her face was so sensitive that applying any form of skincare products would result in an immense irritation. This caused her large amounts of distress, it seemed impossible for her to find anything that would calm her skin down.
This led to her experimenting with a plethora of ingredients, hoping to find something that would improve her skin for good. Her luck finally changed when she was working away in the kitchen with her grandmother and the duo concocted a homemade face mask that contained kelp seaweed. Sarah was so happy to find that her skin reacted positively to the formula.
This is where SYKEA Skincare was born. Sarah began to work with formulators that have over 30 years’ experience in the skincare and cosmetic business.
SYKEA Skincare, the name is a slight twist on the Greek word Sykia, meaning fig tree. It is a symbol of a very fertile time to create something new. Sarah learned some time ago about the almost magical natural power and strengths of the fig tree in various locations. She found the fig tree to represent great natural strength and its almost healing properties for the ecosystem and its amazing benefits for human consumption. It is the perfect fit.
