Rahua - known for pure ingredients and excellent performance - was created by a wonderful coincidence. Fabian Lliguin, a well-known hairdresser in New York City, visited the Amazon rainforest as an environmentalist. He informed the aborigines of their land and human rights when he found that he was surrounded by women with beautiful long, shiny hair. The secret, said the women, was Rahua-Oil.
For centuries, members of the tribe who live deep in the rainforest have used this oil to care for their hair and skin. With a bottle Rahua-Oil in his luggage, Fabian came back to NYC. In his salon on Fifth Avenue, as an experiment and without great expectations, he decided to use the oil to treat a customer with very dry and damaged hair. After 10 minutes, her hair was transformed: from brittle and lifeless to healthy, shiny and springy. Fabian knew that he was holding something very special in his hands and also knew that he had to be respectful of it. Rahua-Oil has been and is produced by the Quechua-Shuar tribe in the same ritual and sustainable way for generations. Fabian, who has supported the indigenous people of the rainforest for a long time, did not want to disrupt this process.
Together with his wife Anna, he founded in 2008 Rahua. They have carefully drawn on the wisdom of the Quechua-Shuar tribe to formulate a range of innovative products on a purely natural basis. Products that heal, nourish and transform hair. Today, more than 500 families from Quechua-Shuar and neighboring tribes work with Fabian and Anna to help those in the Rahua- To cultivate ingredients from the rainforest that are used in a sustainable way.
