Interview: Manisha Chopra of Seasoul Cosmeceuticals

Manisha Chopra makes natural skin care products and they’re awesome!

Tell me about Seasoul Cosmeceuticals…

Well, it all kicked off three years ago in Australia. I’m originally a telecom engineer who used to work in the corporate world. A Malaysian colleague of mine was getting married and it so happened that her makeup artist couldn’t make it at the last minute. I took over her entire makeup and styling and it was such a massive success! Would you believe I was booked for the next seven months!

My mother was always interested in and perfect with her makeup. Beauty was in my blood. But it took that incident to make me realise that that’s the field I wanted to be in. I took up a course with makeup legend Rae Morris and once done, she offered me to work with her. It was an opportunity straight out of heaven. Working with her is better than attending the best of makeup schools.

After my child was born with a skin condition known as Eczema, I deeply got into skin health related research, natural healing etc. I wasn’t satisfied with any of the brands I came across. My research and all the knowledge I gained led to the birth of Seasoul Cosmeceuticals.

Tell me about Seasoul products.

Seasoul products are all natural products comprising of five key ingredients; Dead Sea minerals, plant stem cells, Argon oil, Goji berries and the Noni fruit. They’re aimed naturally at solving skin problems.

Where are your products manufactured?

In Israel!

Do you have a favourite?

That’s like picking a favourite child! If I have to, I’d pick the cleanser, toner, the CC cream and the super-healing mud mask. I also swear by the Vitamin C serum.

How can Punekars avail your products?

I recently collaborated with Zazen Spa in Pune. So one can get them at Zazen outlets. Other than that, one can also shop for them online through our website or e-commerce websites like Jabong, Fabbag, Snapdeal etc.
