Our Story

As a busy mother of three, beauty industry veteran and a 12th generation Canadian, Céla is an extension of our founder Celine Tadrissi's collective experience. Since opening the award-winning Hammam Spa over 17 years ago, her mission has always been to empower everyone to make self-care a priority in their life.

Today, Celine oversees both Céla and Hammam Spa with a hands-on approach to ensure both represent the absolute best in Canadian beauty and wellness.


From the Spa to Your Home

Céla was created when Celine searched for high-quality, clean products to use at the spa and was frustrated by the lack of thoughtful, Canadian-made options that were up to Hammam Spa's professional standards. Recognizing that the home was also an important place to build ritual and supplement wellness in-between treatments, Céla is now available outside of the spa to elevate your simple home routine into a restorative self-care ritual that you will return to every day.


Hammam Spa

Innovative in concept and the first of its kind in Eastern Canada, Hammam Spa is both a sought-after destination and internationally-renowned industry leader.

Hammam has been awarded "Top 25 Spas in Canada" for the last 5 years with two prestigious locations in Toronto. It is currently the largest independently operated spa in Canada.

From Seed to Skin Ingredient Guide

The Céla Complex

Designed to calm, protect and soothe the skin from the Northern climate, the Céla Complex is a blend of six Canadian botanical extracts - Blueberry, Elderberry, Evening Primrose, Juniper Berry, Rosemary and Lavender. Combined, these potent extracts reveal skin’s natural radiance while protecting it from the ravages of environmental factors and supporting its health at the cellular level.


The needle-like leaves of the evergreen rosemary shrub are distilled to produce a soothingly aromatic, mineral-rich extract awash in skin-boosting flavonoids, phenolic acids, essential oils and vitamins. Rosemary’s purifying and skin-calming benefits combine with the woody, relaxing fragrance it imparts to promote the well-being of body and mind alike.


The flowers of the perennial lavender plant emit a calming fragrance that induces peace of mind and supports restful sleep, while its antifungal and antibacterial properties work to heal and balance the skin. Readily absorbed, lavender extract has also been shown to have analgesic effects, helping to alleviate discomfort from minor irritations.

Blueberry fruit extract

Rich in damage-combating antioxidant vitamins A, C and E, polyphenolic tannins with antibacterial and irritation-calming properties, as well as essential fatty acids to aid in moisture regulation, blueberries are a natural-skincare superfood, working to protect and soothe skin.

Evening Primrose

A non-fragrant plant oil whose fatty acids can have significant skin-soothing and emollient benefits for all skin-types. Its soothing properties can calm acne, encourage elasticity and tones the skin. Evening Primrose oil is also excellent paired with other more active botanicals as it allows for deeper penetration of potent ingredients.

Elderberry fruit extract

Elderberries have a detoxifying, radiance-boosting effect on the skin thanks to their potent concentration of Vitamin C. A hero of folk medicine for their cold- and influenza-fighting abilities, they are also an excellent source of anthocyanins, which are antioxidant plant pigments proven to reduce inflammation and promote microcirculation.
