Our story

It all started with a baby.

In 2019, husband and wife Zak and Zara were expecting a little one. But during this time, Zara began to experience intensely dry, painful and problematic skin. Wanting to find a natural solution, she recalled all the times her own mother used their South-Asian heritage to find a solution to any skin or hair issue. 

It was here that they formulated a product using various Indian ingredients which transformed her skin overnight. Zara's grandmother, who was from Delhi in India, came from a long line of 'hakims' who used Ayurvedic recipes to promote natural healing - hence the brand name 'Delhicious'. The next few years were a blur of sleepless nights growing the brand whilst juggling family life with two under two. 

Delhicious can now be found in a range of stores across the UK and their products have won awards as well as going viral on social media.
