Qhemet Biologics is a haircare brand that was founded in 2004 by Felis Butler, a historian with a master’s degree in ancient history. Her products are research-based on old-world plant oils and extracts used by ancestors to groom, condition, and protect their natural hair. These products focus on moisturizing and growing your natural healthy hair.
Qhemet Biologics is a clean, SLS-free (sodium lauryl sulfate), paraben-free, silicone-free, and eco-friendly, plant-based haircare line for women with 4c hair (kinky-coily hair types). We carry these products in all four Weaver Street Market locations: Twist and Hydrate Aethiopika Butter, Amla and Olive Heavy Cream, Tea Tree and Lavender Therapeutic Pomade, Olive and Honey Hydrating Balm, Castor and Amla Nourishing Pomade, Castor and Moringa Softening Serum, Coconut and Green Tea Softening Serum
Qhemet alternatively Kemet or Kermet (KMT) means “Black Land.” This was in an early period during the Old Kingdom also known as the “Age of the Pyramids” (c.2700-2200 BCE). Egypt was referred to as Kemet and the people were “remetch en Kermet” meaning people of the Black Land referring to the rich soil from the Nile Valley and Delta.
