Nirvana Botanique: Entrepreneur Roohi Kalia Jain's Natural Skincare Line

Hey beautifuls, hope you are all welcoming winter with a warm hug. Hot coffees, nutty chocolates, colourful woollens: there comes a lot of things with winter. But what else also comes is the dryness of skin and hair. So, are getting prepared to tackle the situation? If not, today I will talk about such a brand that promises to take care of any skin or hair related issues that we may have, throughout the year with its advanced skincare and hair care solution, derived from natural sources. I am talking
about Nirvana Botanique.


About Nirvana Botanique:
Nirvana Botanique is a luxurious handmade skin & hair care brand that ensures the most pleasant bathing and cleansing experience.


The products are devoid of any alcohol, sulphates, artificial fragrances and parabens that are easily absorbed by the skin and into the bloodstream. The products do not contain any animal ingredients. Natural preservatives like Vitamin E and Wheatgerm Oil are used to increase the life of the products.
About Entrepreneur Roohi Kalia Jain & Her Creation:
Roohi Kalia Jain, ideated this very concept of coming up with a chemical free skin & hair care solution through her urge of maintaining a healthy skin devoid of any harsh chemicals.

While going through one of the articles penned by her Pharmacist brother-in-law's, she became aware of the fact that drugs that may cure a disease but will leave behind many harmful side effects. Then it struck her mind that perhaps the chemically infused personal care products she had been using might have the same effect and thus lead to dryness, itching, rashes and other unpleasant experiences.


After extensively researching on the ingredients in commercial skin hair care products and also the benefits of natural products, she decided to make her own products with natural ingredients and even received training from veterans in this field.

Roohi is an avid traveller and had worked in a School Sports company, prior to starting Nirvana Botanique. The brand, that started from a humble beginning of self-consumption, started gaining love and popularity and thus she started her new journey. In her words:
“Going completely natural may prove to be a little difficult initially, especially for the younger generation, which has been used to products with strong lingering fragrances, thick consistencies and luxurious lather. In many cases our skin/hair may take time to even accept natural products. However, the benefits and satisfaction derived from guilt free indulgence in natural products is totally worth it! Moreover, many of these products have therapeutic properties and their benefit to our body and mind is definitely a big plus.”

My experience:

I have been using their products for more than 3 weeks now. Frankly I have yet to go for the facial regimen, because of my current skincare routine challenge of 1 month. However, I have incorporated few products like the Aloe vera gel, the cleanser, the Saffron skin butter and the Saffron toner. I am really happy the results. I would specially like to talk about the Saffron Skin Butter and Aloe vera gel. These products are simply amazing. While the butter heals dryness on any part of the skin, the aloe vera gel soothes and hydrates skin. 

The best things have to be their Hair care range, without any doubt. All the products are immensely effective and have improved to reform my overall hair texture, which is very dry and frizzy in general. 


Nirvana Botanique products contain no alcohol, no sulphates, no artificial fragrances and no parabens that are easily absorbed by the skin and into the bloodstream. There are also options available for vegan, 100% Natural and 100% soap free products. There are products for babies and people with sensitive skin as well. There is something for everyone in the family! 

I will do separate posts or videos on my hair care routine and Facial routine with Nirvana Botanique products soon. Please stay tuned. For more information on Nirvana Botanique please visit their website here: https://www.nirvanabotanique.com/
