The damaging effect of synthetic beauty products on skin and hair is driving Indian consumers towards adopting more skin health – sensitive cosmetic items.

Although belated, the shift towards herbal beauty products is a welcome trend. No longer “beauty” conscious alone, Indian consumers are putting greater emphasis on the health of their body. The purpose of cosmetics is to enhance men, woman’s skin, to make it appear more inviting, not infect it with chemicals that leave your skin looking unsightly most of brands have been known to hamper your skin from breathing freely. It can cause impurities to settle on your skin, can lead to acnes, pimples and all kinds of ghastly allergies.
They have been scientifically proven to be harsh on your skin, with numerous studies reporting that they are carcinogenic, too. Why would anyone still be using them? There is only short – term gain in using such products, and skin complications in the long term.
