The name Nelumbo comes from the botanical name for the sacred lotus- nelumbo nucifera.  Across different cultures these extraordinary flowers serve as a symbol of grace, purity and the potential for success in adversity.


Our Story

The founder of Nelumbo had worked for almost ten years as a beauty therapist when a rose thorn injury triggered psoriatic arthritis in her fingers and hands. Suddenly unable to continue her work hands on, she took the opportunity to move behind the scenes and use the opportunity to share her passion for plant based body care through a range of body products, each designed to nourish the body and the spirit.

The name Nelumbo was chosen to acknowledge the ability of people to - just as the lotus does- rise above poor conditions and flourish into something new, rare and beautiful.
