Read about Narynda's story in the Cambridge News
“This has been my passion for years”
Cambridge-based Narynda Kumar is no ordinary grandmother. Aged 53 she has been refining and developing her own skincare range for seven years.
She was inspired to look after her own and her family’s health and well-being, since finding prescribed methods didn’t work for her.
Seven years ago, Narynda developed a rash on her body which was diagnosed by her GP as stress-induced dermatitis. The advice was to take antihistamines and use non-perfumed moisturizing cream. The recommended cure had little effect, so Narynda decided to try and treat herself, taking a holistic approach she began experimenting with the left over wax from her own bee honey harvest.
The cream not only cleared up her dermatitis, but improved the overall condition of her skin. The difference was so noticeable, that friends began asking what she was using. Narynda began producing jars of cream for friends and neighbours. Today, Narynda still keeps bees and has continued with her holistic philosophy. This month she officially launches the ‘Narynda’ skincare range.
Helen Christy, friend and running partner of Narynda says: "I have been using Narynda’s products while she has been developing and creating them. They have rejuvenated the look and feel of my skin and it is so reassuring to know that I am using completely natural ingredients”.
The entrepreneurial Narynda has created a production workshop at home and hand makes her products.
“I love to experiment, explore and see what I can do with natural ingredients. Producing this skin care range has been my passion for so many years, with many lessons learned along the way. It makes me very proud to see my products help my friends feel better about themselves and with the launch of my website, a wider audience will now be able to benefit from my all natural range of skincare products.”
Narynda is a trained nurse, has been a social worker and is an amateur vegetarian cook.
