suki・me = Love myself
“Suki” (好きです / すきです) means “like” or “love” in Japanese.
We adopted the word in our brand name not only because we admire the focus and passion Japanese people bring to mastering their vocation, but also because the birth of Sukime came from the intention of giving our bodies what they truly deserve, and that is offering it all-natural, cruelty-free “food” inside and out.
I Moved To Bali In 2012
Before my relocation, I had been vegan, organic, and practicing natural medicine (for my friends & family) for quite some time. After a few years in Bali and surrounded by this abundance of wild-grown superfoods, I decided to turn my lifestyle into another business venture which I’ve done a few times in the past. The universe says to share what you love and the rest will follow. I agree 100%.
Additionally, the growing desire to help local children in need has been building and Sukime is my outlet to fulfill this dream as well.
Our team members are discerning foodies, yogis, and heart-centered serial entrepreneurs.
Sukime evolved naturally from our organic vegan lifestyle over the past 15 years. We make body and skincare products from wild-grown superfood ingredients. 90% of our ingredients are locally sourced.
I’ve been coming to Bali since 1997, and Balinese culture has certainly played an important role in my life. It encourages us to live in harmony with Mother Earth and with spirit, as well as with one another.
Every product is hand-made in small batches with the intention to tune in to the physical and spiritual levels, allowing organic healing, transformation process to naturally unfold.
My goal is twofold; first, is to help people understand everything we need for a healthy body can be found in nature. Second, natural products are NOT created equal. The quality of the ingredients depends on the quality of the soil, processes used, seeding and harvesting as well as the overall intentions of the people involved. Our focus is to live life in harmony, to do good things and to make products that reflect these intentions. Give us a try and let us know what you think.
Blessings from Bali.
