Frustrated by the lack of effective and luxurious skin care products that were safe and gentle enough for pregnant women and those with sensitive skin, Dr. Nina Naidu created her own collection in 2008. Drawing from both ancient beauty traditions and her modern medical knowledge, Dr. Naidu has focused on ingredients often used in Ayurvedic treatments, including neem, jasmine, turmeric, amla and rosewater. Anokha, which means “unique” in Urdu, was created to address the individual needs of different skin types using ingredients derived from plants and active botanicals native to South Asia. The line contains no sulfates, parabens, petrolatum, mineral oil, or artificial colors.
Anokha® Skin Care has received numerous positive reviews from both patients and the national and international media, including Lucky Magazine, Living, DaySpa Magazine, The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, Vogue India, and Marie Claire India.
