About Shahnaz Husain


This is a story of a Beauty Mogul of a woman imbued with a burning desire to recapture India’s great herbal Heritage. This is a story of a woman with a passion for beauty and a vision that knows no bounds. The success story of Shahnaz Husain, whose beauty network poses a colossal threat to the synthetic cosmetic world, reads like a fairytale. Her story is the story of the spirit of true entrepreneurship. It provides a rare insight into the individual qualities that make one person stand apart from the rest. It is the story of a woman, a first generation entrepreneur, a pioneer, visionary and innovator, who introduced a totally new concept of Ayurvedic Cure and Care worldwide, with universal appeal and application.

Shahnaz Husain, the pioneer of organic beauty care, has achieved unprecedented international acclaim for her practical application of Ayurveda, the ancient Indian system of herbal healing. Just when there was a worldwide “back to nature” trend, Shahnaz Husain recaptured an ancient herbal system and made it relevant to modern demands. Almost four decades ago, she adopted the principle of Ayurveda, based on an integrated system of clinical treatments and product ranges. Known for product innovation, Shahnaz Husain has evolved nearly 375 formulations for general beauty care, treatment of skin and scalp disorders, health and fitness.

Her study of Ayurveda, the Indian holistic system of herbal healing, strengthened her faith in nature, finding that it could offer the ideal answers to protective, preventive and even corrective cosmetic-care. Today, her name has become a brand and she is herself the brand ambassador. She heads the largest organization of its kind in the world, with a chain of over 400 franchise clinics, shops, schools and spas worldwide, as well as Ayurvedic formulations for skin, hair, body and health care. During the last three decades, the Shahnaz Husain Group has acquired a tremendous global presence, having sold at prestigious stores, as well as exclusive outlets and clinics worldwide.
