Manal Nasta

Entrepreneur and creator Manal Nasta grew up in Syria before emigrating to Australia at the age of 13. She grew up hearing a saying which stuck with her: “If you don’t have an elderly person at home, then you buy one.” True to this quote, Manal feels a great reverence toward her Teta (grandmother), a kindred old soul who has always been a source of inspiration, support and encouragement for her. Full of wisdom and experience, her Teta was the originator of Hygia Balm and revealed it to the world over half a century ago.

She concocted this home remedy made from honey, olive oil, and beeswax to help a friend’s child with a rare skin condition. Unresponsive to other creams and balms, Hygia Balm was the only topical cream that helped soothe the child’s skin.

Manal “rediscovered” Hygia Balm after recreating her Teta’s recipe as she entered her thirties and found her skin getting dry to the point of cracking and bleeding.

“I tried Hygia Balm only after giving up trying many creams. My belief in the goodness and effectiveness of this homemade skin cream that had dramatically repaired my skin conditions was the impetus to begin offering it to family members, friends and neighbours to try.”

Glowing feedback spurred her to market Hygia Balm to Australia and the world, providing a natural alternative to harsh chemical creams and balms in the market. With the growing demand from home, Manal shifted production to a lab while retaining its original goodness and natural touch.

Hygia Balm is a 100% Australian-owned family business, and we thank all our customers for their generous support!
