The Herbal Queen
Hussain, the beauty entrepreneur, is a woman imbued with
a burning desire to recapture India's great herbal heritage.
She has channalised ancient herbal remedies and cures, incorporating
in them the latest advancements in beauty sciences. Shahnaz
Hussain, the moving force behind the Shahnaz Hussain Herbal
range, is a woman with passion for beauty and a vision that
knows no bounds.
Shahnaz Hussain comes from a family of legal luminaries. She
is the daughter of Chief justice N.U Beg. Shahnaz Hussain
is unique to the extent that she is perhaps the only woman in
the world to use precious herbal extracts as a cure and an answer
to the human need to acquire and preserve beauty. Today, herbs
are not a fad but they are an international trend. The natural
thought that comes to our minds when we speak of herbs is India.
The West is looking towards us with enlightened eyes.
When there were no synthetics, India always had herbs. In fact,
whenever you think of synthetics, you can always find a better
answer in nature.
The Shahnaz Hussain herbal range was created as an answer to
human needs, the innate desire dormant in every woman to acquire
perfection and to maintain it. In the Shahnaz Hussain herbal
chain of salons each client is handled individually, each skin
is diagnosed carefully, classified and then treated according
to its individual requirements. A lot of emphasis is placed
on diet and general health. A client with problems is put through
a series of tests to try and ascertain the basic cause of the
problem. Unless the inner body health is perfect, cosmetics
will only help temporarily. With correct diagnosis of the basic
problem and its treatment, beauty care can achieve permanent
results. There is a positive difference between products made
from the extracts of the real fruit or herb and synthetically
In India we use the actual extracts of precious herbs
and that is why the effect is so remarkable. The unique aspect
of Shahnaz Herbal Range is that it is geared for maintenance
and care. What makes them so special is that it has been used
extensively in helping to cure various problems like Alopecia,
Falling Hair, Dandruff, Acne, Pigmentation, Scars, Blemishes
and for minimizing the ageing process.
Shahnaz Hussain won the Silver Award 1985 for the "Best Woman
Entrepreneur" presented by the Vice President R. Venkatraman.
Barbara Cartland included the Shahnaz Herbal Line in
her personal range of beauty products to be promoted and sold
via the health and happiness club in U.K. Shahnaz was also awarded
the "Images India Award 1985" by K.A Khan, Minister of
External Affairs. Shahnaz's efforts at popularizing Indian herbal
cosmetics were crowned with success in April 1993. Here's a toast to theQueen of Herbs, a herbal toast!
