Even before launching the Nana Essence beauty product brand, Nana Korolev has devoted her life to healthy and vibrant living. Her long years of experience as a competitive swimmer in Russia, and her participation in a great many swimming events has granted her an acute understanding of the importance of keeping yourself healthy and energized.

The strongest impact her swimming career had on this, however, was the constant exposure to chlorinated water and the way it affected her hair, rendering it dry, split and brittle. Not many people are aware of the contrast between the swimming athlete’s well-honed body musculature and their hair and skin, which are another story altogether. Once she’d become aware that her hair needed help, Nana started researching and trying out all sorts of natural hair remedies, such as nettle, white oak and birch. Their effect on her hair was almost miraculous, and so it’s no surprize that they are now the foundation of this new line of Hair and Beauty products.

The Nana Essence brand had launched in 2004 with a full line of hair products. The reviews were fantastic. Customers immediately recognized the natural power of the Nana Essence products. It finally gave the answer to fuller, softer, more vibrant hair to every customer, which is the foundation of the line’s success - it really works. A proudly Canadian brand, Nana Essence had since expanded to a line that includes a shampoo, conditioner, hair mask, deodorant, and body wash, every one of them fully Organic. Our company is a member of EcoLogo, and the products are now occupying shelves in Health Food stores, gyms, tanning salons, pharmacies and SPAs all over Canada, from sea to shining sea.

Another strong point of the Nana Essence brand is that it is proudly affordable. We do not overprice our products - we want everyone to have access to them. At under $20, you can easily stock your bathroom cabinet with the entire line of organic wellness and not need another solution ever again.

Every one of our products is certified by EcoLogo to be:

  1. Readily biodegradable
  2. Are not tested on animals
  3. Reduce waste by using recyclable packaging
  4. Minimize eye and skin irritations
  5. Reduce phosphate pollution that can choke our water systems
  6. Our gift boxes are developed and manufactured in Canada composed of fully recyclable materials to ensure a lower carbon footprint on our environment.

Our family of healthy, eco-conscious beauty products is perfect for everyone!

What Our Clients Say

I absolutely love a shampoo called Nana Essence ,it`s from Canada, but it`s so worth the trouble of getting it shipped as it`s excellent for dyry hair and meets all the green requirements Toronto, Sophie Uliano Read more
After looking unsuccessfully for a long time to find a product that not only helps to slow down hair loss (not uncommon with the bariatric surgery that I had last September), but is biodegradable, I was so excited to find Nana`s Essence. Not only did I find a wonderful shampoo, conditioner and hair mask that has slowed down my hair loss, I found an amazing liquid shower soap and deodorant as well. The Nana`s Essence Products are amazing! Thanks Nana! Toronto, Alyson Middlecamp Read more
I`ve always wondered how the models on t.v. have such full and luminous hair. I`ve tried most of these products that preach similar results, but none of them ever worked.

That is, until I tried Nana Essence Shampoo and hair mask. Right away I saw a remarkable difference in my hair, it became thicker and fuller. It built the body into my hair that i`ve always wanted.

At last, my hair shines and is full of life, just like those models on t.v. Toronto, Karina Avramenko Read more
Nana Essence hair products have completely changed the look and feel of my hair. I used to have fine, limp hair that was damaged from heat and over-styling.

The NanaEssence hair mask restored health and body back into my hair and the shampoo helps to keep it soft and clean.

I love that NanaEssence is natural and organic- this means I can feel good about what I put into my hair. I will never go back to using harsh hair products now that I`ve discovered NanaEssence. Toronto, Sarita Falovich Read more
I tried Nana Essence Shampoo and Hair Mask for a fun change.

Little did I know what an effect it would have on my hair! Not only is my hair softer and filled with shine, but it stays clean and vibrant for twice as long as it used to.

The best part of it all, is that I feel safe putting natural products into my hair! Toronto, Tali Ritov Read more
I am a 63 year old woman who lost all(not all at the same time of course) of her hair between the ages of 25 and 50.Only about a third of it grew back and it is very fine and fragile. I tried everything over the years and bought your product on an impulse at the health food store. It has been miraculous. Never has my hair had so much volume in 20 years, never has it been so healthy! You can be sure I will keep on buying it along with the mask. I will certainly recommend to my friends. The price is very reasonable.

Thank you for an excellent product. Toronto, Louise Lacomb Read more
