Our Story

Nirvana Natural Bliss is a luxury Vegan skincare range developed by a PhD Medical scientist and mother, Dr. Nirvana Shanalee Pillay.
Inspired by the idea of " nirvana" as a state of perfect equilibrium and spiritual enlightenment, Dr Pillay decided to tie this ancient Sanskrit word in with the branding as a reflection of the ethos underlying the brand as a whole.
The skincare range is developed using ancient beauty secrets  from countries around the world to expertly combine tradition, science and nature’s goodness to achieve extraordinary skincare. Formulations are made with a combination of botanical actives that are organic and natural. Formulations are strictly made with ingredients that are not tested on animals and we do not use animal products. Nirvana Natural Bliss products are paraben-free, alcohol-free, petroleum-free and are eco-friendly. 

How do we define Natural?

We define natural as products that are free from harsh ingredients and are derived when at least 95% of the molecule is from natural sources such as plant extracts, botanical actives, essential oils, beeswax, plant oils and butters.


How we define harsh ingredients?


Harsh ingredients are essentially those that are chemically-derived and have scientifically and conclusively been found to cause harmful effects to the body.
We do not use these ingredients in our product development:
Formaldahyde, Hydroquinone, Mineral oils/Petroleum, Parabens, SLS/SLES, Talc, Phthalates, Urea, Animal fats


Do we use preservatives in our formulations?


It is an absolute necessity in the promotion of safe skincare to use a preservative. We choose a paraben-free option in our formulations.
