The Royal range is curated in collaboration with Maharajkumari Mrinalika M Bhanjdeo of the erstwhile state of Mayurbhanj, Odisha.
Mumbai (Maharashtra) [India], May 18: Global Beauty Secrets, the brainchild of Aishwarya Swarna Nir, collaborates with Maharajkumari Mrinalika M Bhanjdeo of The House of Mayurbhanj, to launch a beauty range inspired by the heritage and history of the erstwhile royal family of Eastern India. Global beauty Secrets has carved a niche for itself in the beauty segment by creating products that embed the collective wisdom of women from all around the world, and with this unique collection the focus is on ancient beauty secrets from the women’s zenana’s of Indian palaces.
The products developed for this range consist of hair dew, face oil, and a copper sculpting wing named after Santhali words inspired by the famous tribal community found in Mayurbhanj.
On the launch of this collaboration, Founder of Global Beauty Secrets, Aishwarya Nir Swarna, says, “At Global beauty Secrets, our ideology is to delve deep into each culture and re-introduce the wisdom of ingredients that is lost today. Our collaboration with the House of Mayurbhanj and Maharajkumari Mrinalika M. Bhanj Deo, is one such effort. We bring our consumers closer to East Indian beauty secrets with this range. Also, the collection is unique as Mrinalika M Bhanjdeo, the Princess of Mayurbhanj, is herself a certified Yoga teacher with expertise in Hatha Yoga and passionate about sustainability and an advocate for organic brands in the health and lifestyle space hence the collaboration was a perfect fit for us.”
“Collaborating on a beauty range with Global Beauty Secrets is a dream come true, as it allows the world to experience first hand the community and culture of India’s best kept secret – Odisha! The curation of the three beauty products beautifully showcase the mélange of the communities and their indigenous knowledge of flora and fauna present in Odisha’s largest district – Mayurbhanj. I was certain that I could not find a better partner to introduce the world to Odisha’s beauty secrets- especially a brand who took the time to do the research and understand the region specific ingredients and rituals associated with beauty here. With the launch of this range, I aim to shine a light on the powerful heritage and customs from offbeat rural locations and pay homage to the communities who have preserved them for so long with utmost care.” Says Mrinalika M Bhanjdeo, Princess of Mayurbhanj, Belgadia
