ShiKai is a trusted brand of natural beauty products known for innovative, effective formulations that are gentle on hair and skin.
Founded by two chemists in 1970 who experimented with the therapeutic benefits of botanicals, ShiKai’s first product was shampoo - which was made from, and named for, shikakai, a plant from India known for its ability to clean hair and leave it silky, soft and shiny - without drying hair or irritating the scalp.
Botanic innovation backed by scientific formulations still drives ShiKai today. ShiKai is first and foremost a company run by chemists - who stand by clinical testing, high-quality ingredients, and exacting standards. Unlike most beauty companies, we don’t buy formulations from a catalog and rebrand the products as our own. We demand the highest integrity from our formulations, which means we produce all of our 50 products in-house, from start to finish, at our facility in northern California. Our customers get the highest quality product, made from scientific-grade ingredients, without added manufacturing costs.
Our products work. We don’t make unsubstantiated marketing claims. If you’re not satisfied with a ShiKai product for any reason, simply return it. We offer a no-questions-asked, money-back guarantee on every product.
