The hot and humid monsoons are here and it is time to upgrade your beauty regime with chemical free and responsibly sourcedproducts that not only take care of your wellbeing but that of Mother Nature. Here’s a roundup of the latest launches in the Skin and Soin industry by brands that are contributing to your wellness:
With India banning Chinese apps and working to become aatmanirbhar, there’s a palpable shift in consumer sentiment togo #vocalforlocal and support more environment friendly brands. Offering assiduously handcrafted skin and hair products focused on ‘reviving the Indian Tradition’ Deyga is one such brand.
From powders, handmade soaps and shampoo bars to hair oils and beauty serums the band covers it all. What we love best is the fact that each product listed comes with fully disclosed ingredients, skin type suggestions and combinations.
The manufacturing process that involves plucking, smashing and sun-drying of plants, leaves or flowers, it’s only made possible by the glory of nature that keeps them working. In fact Deyga has planted 4500+ trees in the past few months, doing its bit to give back to society.
Deyga organics also has essential oils and baby products that include items such as a handcrafted talc free powder and chemical free baby butter. You can also check out their men’s grooming range that includes a moustache and beard oil as well as charcoal bath bars.
The humid monsoon weather brings with the stench of sticky body odour that can be smelt from miles away! Unlike the dry heat, toxic and gassy deodorants don’t cut it in this weather for long and something more powerful is needed. ITC’s Engage has just launched two such fragrances for men and women which are long lasting yet subtle, powerful but not overpowering and can easily switch from day to night.
The L’amante collection for Him is a confidentMasculine fragrance for the successful man of today. It is a fresh and energizing fragrance with juicy citrus and fresh mint top notes, woody leathery heart notes and musky notes in the trail.
The feminine counterpart for the fragrance has sparkling citrus & fruity top notes, elegant notes of jasmine and tender rose in middle and addictive caramel and amber base notes. It is the perfect fragrance for special occasions like social or formal events, date, wedding, party, meetings etc.
