Andalou's Name Origin: 'A Path of Light'
Andalou Naturals carefully considered a name that would best reflect the inspired fusion of their brand, blending nature and knowledge with advanced science for skin care, hair care, and body care products that are simply good for you. The word ‘Andalou’ [an.da.lu] has a rich, ancient history with connotations of ‘emergence’ and ‘path of light.’ Originally drawn from pre-Roman and ancient Arabic language, al-Andalus, means ‘Isle of Atlantis’ and is the French spelling for ‘Andalusia.’
Just as Andalusia is a geographic and cultural gateway between Europe and Africa, bridged between the Atlantic Ocean and Mediterranean Sea, Andalou Naturals is a gateway between the best of nature and knowledge and a bridge from farm to bottle and botany to beauty. Similar to the complex, sumptuous history of Andalusia that has been woven from a montage of cultures across time; Andalou's formulas have been cultivated from a diverse portfolio of ancient botanicals and modern technology.
Andalou Naturals loves their name, not only for its rich history, but also because it’s simply beautiful, akin to their collection of natural and organic beauty products. Andalou hopes you agree.
