When we came across Norshek products, named after the founder, we quickly became fans of the natural soap bars and special tea editions. Since then, the flagship store opened in Gouna and the line of products expanded to include more soap and tea options, along with shampoo, conditioner, body lotion, bath salt, and perfume.

According to Norshek, her products are a reflection of the passion of the community behind it. The growers, story-tellers or chemists each places input in the making of the products. Let your hair, body and spirit glow. Norshek delivers all over Egypt. Cairo takes 2 days from placing your order.
