She created a brand with universal appeal and application. Shahnaz Husain`s brand found place in the international market for Ayurvedic beauty care. In a world ridden with environmental degradation, Shahnaz Husain ventured into the world of nature and its healing powers, taking the Indian herbal heritage of Ayurveda to every corner of the globe with a crusader’s zeal.

Born into a conservative family, the mild-mannered Shahnaz says, “I had to comply with existing traditions and was married at a tender age of 15 and become a mother by the time I was 16. I trained for ten years to keep abreast with the developments in cosmetic therapy and cosmetic chemistry, at leading institutions of the West, like Helena Rubinstein, Swarzkopf, Christine Valmy, Lancome and Lean of Copenhagen.” Adopting the principle of “Care and Cure,” she set up her own herbal clinic, at her residence, with very little capital investment, formulating products for skin, hair and body care, based on the ayurvedic system and developing clinical treatments for specific problems. Her formulations and treatments have become breakthroughs in natural beauty care. Shahnaz’s success, as she avers, in the international arena, in the face of great odds, is itself phenomenal.
