Welcome to Shanga! We're excited to share our stories, introduce you to our tribe, and hear a little more about you.
At Shanga, we believe that caring for the health and wellness of your skin is not a luxury, it's a necessity. Looking after your skin should be a habit. A ritual you perform each day just like cleaning your teeth. As luxury beauty brands flood the market, we look to results-driven ingredients; botanical extracts combined with vitamins, peptides, omega rich oils... all artfully blended to provide the skin with what it needs for optimum health.
For over 35 years, our founder and professional skin therapist, Joanne Nicholls, has honed her craft to bring us customised professional treatments paired with botanically based, results-driven products. The system is simple yet customisable, allowing you, as a therapist, to prescribe the best solution to your clients needs granting her the best skin of her life.
From day one as a salon owner, Joanne was adamant to not use products containing fillers, i.e. mineral oil, S.D alcohol, artificial fragrances and colours, or other ingredients shown to lead to sensitised skin. Although many of the brands she used were good, they were either using good-for-you ingredients that didn't give the results, or chemical laden ingredients that gave initial good results but had ingredients that Joanne was not comfortable using long term on her clients.

Many of the products in the Shanga line up are a direct result of Joanne searching for a solution to a particular clients skin need.
