According to the 2001 Census, the UK has approximately 3.6million people of Black African/Black Caribbean/Indian/Pakistani minority. Orissa Cosmetics is hoping to offer a perfect match for women with darker skin tones.

Hand made in the UK using natural minerals, Orissa Cosmetics is specially developed for ethnic women with darker skin tones. Founding directors Bhimal Hira and Mona Parekh state that “women with dark skin tones are not being adequately catered for by the mainstream beauty industry, leaving many ethnic women using makeup product’s that does not suit their skin type”.

The Orissa range includes carefully selected shades of foundations, blushers, bronzers and eye shadows that dramatically enhance and perfectly match darker skin tones. What’s more, the entire range is hand made using crushed natural earth minerals that is easy to apply, allows skin to breath throughout the day, does not require constant re-application, has a natural UVA/UVB protection (SPF 15-20) and is highly water and humid resistant.
