Our name comes from the botanical name for the sacred lotus
- nelumbo nucifera-
a symbol of grace, purity and the potential for success in adversity.
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 begin something new and share her passion for plant based body and hair care beyond friends and family.
The name Nelumbo was chosen to acknowledge the ability of people to - just as the lotus does- rise above adverse conditions and flourish into something new, rare and beautiful.
