Shahnaz Husain is one of India's most successful women entrepreneurs. Her company, Shahnaz Husain Herbals is one of the largest manufacturers of herbal products in the world. It formulates and markets over 400 products for various beauty and health needs. The Making of an Entrepreneur:
Shahnaz Husain belongs to a royal Muslim family which migrated from Samarkhand to India before India's independence. She thus had the advantage of growing up in a traditional family and receiving a modern education. She was married at the age of 15 and was a mother by the next year. When her husband was posted in Teheran, Iran, she developed an interest in beauty treatments and decided to study cosmetology. Consequently, she turned her attention to Ayurveda, which she believed was the ideal alternative to chemical cosmetics, which not only harmed the human system but also led to the deterioration of the environment in the long run. In 1977 she set up her own salon at her house in Delhi with an initial investment of Rs 35000. SHAHNAZ HUSAIN’S ACHIVEMENTS
