Nyor, meaning ‘dew drops’ in Assamese, is all about creating beauty products that are delicate, safe and would make everyone look like themselves, but better and more confident — A boost to one’s natural beauty.
When our founder, Parineeta Borthakur started her acting career in Mumbai, she sat through hours of makeup, always observing how the makeup artist’s hands moved, how he mixed products and colours to get the perfect shade. She also understood how makeup worked differently on-screen and off-screen, according to the lighting.
Being inquisitive about what goes into cosmetic products, Parineeta did her own research on the various chemical names enlisted on the packaging and was taken aback when she realized that many of the ingredients were animal-derived or were harsh chemicals themselves. So, in 2017, she got down to developing cosmetics with no compromises on quality and efficacy. And there’s been no looking back since.
To create a premium Indian makeup brand that is luxurious yet with a conscience, vegan yet indulgent.
Nyor Cosmetics is not just a passion project. It’s the labour of years of research, searching for the right and safe ingredients, much trial and error, and constantly innovating to bring unique beauty products to the Indian market that will yield unwavering consumer trust.
