FOUNDER OF ZAHARA BEAUTY
On first impressions, Amira appears soft spoken and cultured, but get her talking about nail polish and you will see the bright sparkle of passion she has for her craft. Her love for nail polish was what led her to start Zahara Beauty so she could develop a mix of nail polish that allows water and vapour to pass through just so she could carry out ablutions before prayers without the need to remove her nail polish.
Amira did not start Zahara Beauty in order to market the brand as a halal beauty brand. When first starting out with the brand’s nail polish, Amira’s mission about her need for a water-based nail polish that she can pray with got caught in the fancy of many Muslim women. This was how Zahara Beauty became a home-grown halal beauty brand to watch out for.
