Switching to 100% organic skincare in India is a very challenging task . The reasons being –
1) India does not provide a proper certification for organic products.
2) There are only a handful of brands in India offering 100% organic products that we can actually trust.
3) Consumers are not aware , therefore it gives an opportunity to the brands to fool them by claiming their synthetic products to be organic. Do not go on the name of the brand that claims to be organic , instead focus on the ingredients that they are using.
Also , there is a huge difference between being organic and natural. Since I find both of them to be safe for our skin and hair , I have included all the natural and organic brands that use safe ingredients for our skin in this list.
The major reason I decided to start sharing my love for organic products on the internet is to create awareness among the people regarding the benefits of switching to organic or natural products and to stop them from buying and using the ‘”so called organic brands” . If you follow me on Instagram or Facebook , you will see me sharing posts about the fake organic brands now and then. Before posting about any brand I do an in depth research about the ingredients of that particular cosmetic and the harms caused by those.

My Review – Raw Home Essentials Review
I believe in using the ingredients on your skin that you can actually pronounce and identify. I avoid brands selling products with extremely long ingredients lists . Always remember LESS IS MORE. Also taking care of skin to me is more important than layering it with makeup products. To help you simplify your skin and hair care routine , I launched my own skin care subscription service called “BLEND IT RAW BEAUTY” , a subscription box that will deliver organic ingredients like herbs , essential oils , oils , flower extracts etc. at your doorstep monthly to assist you in making your own skincare and haircare products or to use those ingredients directly into your skincare routine. Read more about my brand – A DIY BEAUTY BOX – Blend It Raw .
NOTE- As many new organic brands are launching in India slowly , I will keep on updating this list from time to time after trying those new brands . If you are running a skincare or haircare brand that is actually safe to use , mail me at email@example.com to include your brand in this list.
