Shahnaz Husain came from humble beginnings with a desire to offer beauty and health to the women of her community, her country, and eventually the world. She began her journey to becoming one of the leaders in ayurvedic beauty care in the 1970’s in New Delhi. There she opened up her first herbal clinic in her home and made the first step towards creating an alternative to the existing salon treatment methods. It was in this small single room salon that she began to create her own innovative “care and cure” technique. This revolutionary method aimed not simply to cover up cosmetic conditions or even temporarily relieve them, but rather to treat their cause and draw the hidden beauty out of each individual through cultivating the health of that individual. Through the years she has thoroughly developed this technique and a wide range of products along with it, and her devotion and motivation has brought her wonderful technique and almost 350 products to nearly 400 private clinics all around the world.
Products are made with all natural ingredients blended in the light of Ayurveda’s millennia of experience. Utilizing the best which the world, history, and modern science has to offer, Shahnaz Husain herbal beauty products are a synergy of knowledge and potent healing herbs, oils, creams, and spices that could only come to be in our unique time and place in history and the world. India is a meeting ground of ancient wisdom and modern science and the abundant resources of the tropics with the powerful fruit of the great Himalayas. These products are born out of this special synergy and present the world with a powerful alternative to the caustic and invasive cosmetic products and techniques of today.
The Shahnaz Husain Group is committed to supporting the health of its customers and the world. By using only natural ingredients which have a great history of use in India they can effectively create products which are safe for people and the environment.

The Shahnaz Husain Group does not perform any cruel animal testing, and all Shahnaz Husain beauty products are completely biodegradable.

The world has received the work of Shahnaz Husain with great joy. She has received many awards throughout her carrier for her products and her inspiring philosophy of beauty. However, she does not take this as a sign to sit back and bask in the fruit of her labor, on the contrary, she takes this encouragement and uses its momentum to push forward in her pursuit of yet better ayurvedic cosmetic treatments and products. Nor has she allowed her success to compromise her morals and business principles. The Shahnaz Husain Group continues to be a completely private company with no outside shareholders to demand greater profits at the expense of quality. The group’s commitment to quality has led them into the many diverse aspects of the field of ayurvedic beauty products. They have opened up their own training institutes, and grow many of their own herbs for their products, in addition to the hundreds of salons and beauty centers worldwide.
