Nefertari: All-Natural, Egyptian-Made Body Products Heaven

There is no more need to bring fancy soaps and body
stuff from abroad. Now that Nefertari produces 100% natural, Egyptian hand-made
body care products and sells them around the city in their nine branches,
there’s really no need to look elsewhere.

Nefertari’s newest branch, now open on Marashly Street
in Zamalek, is full of amazing body products such as soaps,
oils, body lotions, hair care products and bath accessories. Soaps of basil,
olive oil and peppermint will seduce any shopper that is fascinated by the
smell, look and feel of these all-natural products.

Don’t forget to check out Nefertari’s selection of
almost two dozen essential oils. From classics to lavender and rose to less
common oils like myrrh and neroli, Nefertari is well-stocked. By the checkout
counter, you’ll also find ‘Nefertari’s Body Care Guide to Essential Oils’, a
booklet that outlines the therapeutic properties of the oils available.

There is also a variety of body lotions, bath scrubs
and bath bombs in plenty of intoxicating scents. For the ultimate luxury,
invest in an organic robe, towel or slippers. To relieve some of that Cairo muscle tension, pick
up some massage tools that you can use on yourself and others.

Who doesn’t love to treat themselves to something
special every now and then? Nefertari’s gift boxes come in several sizes and are
filled with special treats that would make a great gift for a friend.

The prices are affordable, but still double or triple
what one would pay in the supermarket for generic body care products. Several
of Nefertari’s items start around 30LE, including essential oil bottles, bath
salts and lotions. Soaps are affordable at 16LE, and gift boxes range between
60LE and 300LE.  

360 Tip

Nefertari’s new wonder glycerine soap leaves rough skin feeling silky smooth, is great for sensitive skin and can save you money by doubling as a beauty bar.

Best Bit

One step in the door, and you’ll discover loads of ways to spoil yourself. And that’s never a bad thing.

Worst Bit

Some of the stores tend to close around 5pm; so call beforehand to make sure the branch nearest you is open. Simply search Cairo 360 to find the nearest branch.
