The United Nations of Green Beauty Products : India











I haven’t had the occasion to do a more detailed post about Ayurveda, but I’ve been using Indian hair and skin products for several years, more specifically from this brand Khadi.
The reason everything is written in German, is because Khadi is available here through the German distributor, however Khadi is 100% made in India.
Void of mineral oils, synthetic and artificial colors, Khadi’s herbs are handpicked from the wilderness or organically grown. All products are fair trade, not tested on animals, and certified by BDIH.

From left to right:
Amla Hair oil
I’ve been using this for a year and it’s become a staple. Amla is one of the best sources of Vitamin C, which contributes in strenghtening hair roots and thus preventing hair loss, along with fighting dandruff and premature greying. I can’t really speak for the latter part just yet, I’ll report back about that in a few years 馃槈 Amla is known for preventing the scalp from over-heating, which is one of the main causes of hair fall and scalp infections. However, be aware that that the smell might be offputting, almost sickly (to me, it smells like antique shop or dusty attic ) I’m still putting up with it, because the benefits outweigh the smell; I’ve noticed a difference in my hair texture, my hair feels stronger and fuller.
Ingredients (INCI): Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower Oil) 路 Emblica Officinalis (Amla) 路 Eclipta Alba (Bringaraj) 路 Bacopa monniera (Brahmi) 路 Cyperus rotundus (Nagarmootha) 路 Symplocos racemosa (Lodhra) 路 Ocimum sanctum (Tulsi) 路 Azadirachta indica (Neem) 路 Sesamum indicum (Sesame) 路 Cinnamomum camphora (Camphor) 路 Lawsonia inermis (Henna) 路 Prunus Amygdalus Dulcis (Almond Oil) 路 Tocopherol (Vitamin E)

Pure Amla powder
This is a miracle product! This time, it’s pure amla in a powder form. and it works wonders against itchy and flaky scalp, it gets rid of dandruff, dead skin or any impurities. The smell is quite spicy. Depending on your scalp issue, you should see results fairly quickly. The powder is mixed with hot water to make a thick paste and can be use after shampooing as a conditioner, or as hair mask for over an hour. Just have to rinse it off with plain water.
This is the best product I’ve tried to maintain my scalp healthy, and apparently it works great in conjuction with Henna for those wanting to increase some color depth.
Ingredients (INCI): Emblica Officinalis (Organic Amla Powder)

Vetiver face mask
A spicy potent mixutre that draws out toxins and impurities! I won’t got too much in details, because I’ll do a proper review in another post very soon. If you are experiencing some eruptions, this is a mask you can use several times a week as an intensive treatment. Works particularly great for oily skin.聽聽
Ingredients(INCI) : Solum Fullonum (Fuller鈥檚 earth), Vetiveria Zizanioides (Vetiver) Zincum Oxydatum (Zincoxide),聽 Calamine Santalum album (Sandalwood), Acorus Calamus (Calmus), Symplocos Racemosa Coriandrum Sativum (Coriander), Lens Esculenta Azadirachta indica (Neem), Cinnamomum camphora (Camphor), Rubia Cordifolia聽 Curcuma longa (Turmeric), Vetiveria Zizanioides Oil, Syzygium Aromaticum Oil

Pure rose water toner
The rose water mist is my second bottle already. Smells like fresh roses and is intensely hydrating. I spritz it on my face throughout the day, and it keeps my skin smooth, refreshed and helps retain its moisture. Simple yet effective, just how I like it. The rose Water is extracted from rose petals through the distillation
process using demineralised water, it’s preservative- and alcohol-free.
Ingredients: De-mineralised water, Rose petals.

Pink Lotus all purpose oil (travel size)
I’m keeping this one in my travel bag, I haven’t tried it yet, but judging by its ingredients, I have a feeling that it might be very useful this Summer. Pink Lotus flower has astringent properties supposed to tackle excessive sebum production. The main ingredient, Rice Bran oil apparently helps prevent sunburns, while Neem oil is anti-fungal. For extra UV protection, there’s also Carrot seed oil.
Ingredients : Oryza sativa oil (Ricebran Oil) 鈥 Sesamum indicum oil (Sesame Oil) 鈥 Helianthus annuus oil (Sunflower Oil) 鈥 Nelumbo nucifera (Lotusflower) 鈥 Rubia cordifolia 鈥 Centella asiatica (Tigergras) 鈥 Ficus benghalensis (Banyan) 鈥 Lavandula angustifolia (Lavender) 鈥 Tocopheryl acetate (Vitamin E) 鈥 Cananga odorata (Ylang Ylang) 鈥 Mimosa pudica (Mimose) 鈥 Cedrus deodara 鈥 Azadirachta indica (Neem) 鈥 Daucus carota sativa (Carrot)

Vitalizing hair oil
My most recent addition, its benefits are quite similar to Amla’s hair oil, but with a stronger emphasis on stimulating hair growth. While it revives lackluster hair, Indian herbs such as Bhringaraj, Brahmi, Indrayan and Bala enhance hair growth and strengthen hair roots. Another ingredient, Rosemary is also commonly known to promote hair growth and preventing scalp infections.
Ingredients/inci:聽Sesamum Indicum oil (Sesame oil) 鈥 Cocos Nucifera oil聽(Coconut oil)聽鈥 Ricinus Communis oil聽(Castor oil)聽鈥 Eclipta Alba聽(Bringaraj)聽鈥 Bacopa Monniera (Brahmi) 鈥⒙燬ida cordifolia (Bala) 鈥⒙燘utea Monosperma (Palasa) 鈥⒙燭rigonella Foenum Greacum (Fenugreek)聽鈥⒙燗brus precatorios (Gunja) 鈥⒙燛mblica officinalis聽鈥itrullus Colocynthis (Indrayan) 鈥 Rosmarinus Officinalis (Rosemary) 鈥 Daucus Carota oil聽(Carrot seed oil)聽鈥 Tocopherol聽鈥 Cinamomum Camphora (Camphor)聽鈥 Onosma Hispidum (Ratanjot)

There are so many different ways to incorporate all Indian goodies in your beauty routine. So if you are curious about Ayurveda, Khadi might be a good start. The products are pure and quite affordable (travel sizes are available and a full-size bottle costs approx. 13 Euros)
Khadi products are available on EccoVerde (here) and on their own website (here)

Have you tried Khadi? What’s your favorite Ayurvedic brand?

Take care,




  • Nice post liz! I know Khadi but havent had the opportunity to try anything from this brand…The Pink Lotus oil looks like a super oil! Vetiver mask doesnt sound bad either 馃檪

    • Thanks Audrey! Yes, I wish I could tell you how Pink Lotus is but it certainly looks promising. A more thorough review on Vetiver will come soon and yes, it's really good 馃檪 xx

  • Being of asian decent myself I love to use such products, I really like anything with sandlewood in it, i just love the smell of sandlewood. I am definatly going to check this brand out..especially the hair oils!x

    • Oh yes I love hair oils, since I started using them my hair has been looking much healthier. Let me know if you try them, I'd love to hear your thoughts about it 馃檪 xx

  • Nice! I'm intrigued by the pure amla powder especially 馃檪 I'm interested in Ayurveda, but I actually don't have much experience with it or Ayurvedic products. The only ones I've used are from the Mystic Masala, a Canadian brand. And I s'pose EvanHealy's Ayurvedic line too, although not sure if I'd count those, as I feel like they're pretty westernized.

    • Thanks! Yes the amla powder is really useful and efficient, it works each time 馃檪 I've heard of Evan Healy, but her products are very hard to get outsideof North America. I'll have a look at Mystic Masala, thank you for the suggestion. xx

  • This is very intriguing!! I suffer from many scalp problems so I'm most definitely going to give some of these products a try… thanks for the introduction!!

    • My pleasure! Let me know if you try any of them 馃檪 Amla powder is definitely the product that will show the quickest results! xx

  • I don't know this brand but I had such a field day buying local products when I went to Kerala, which is the home of Ayurveda. I think i'll have to go an investigate some Indian shops near by.

    • Oh that's awesome! I'm sure you'll find lots of beauty gems since you're at the home of Ayurveda 馃檪 xx

  • They all sound wonderful Liz! Hair is actually one thing I don't spend so much time or thought on funnily enough but your post has motivated me! I'd never heard of this brand before either so it was great being introduced to yet another one =) xx

  • Wonderful post, Liz! They all sound really great, I need to check them out too. I can definitely benefit from some hair strengthening!

  • These all sound lovely & the prices are great too! Might have to get some of the rose toner, it always reduces the redness on my cheeks when I use a rose product!

  • hummm this brand looks very interesting! I really like vetiver benefits.. i will take a look at this mask. Thanks Liz for sharing 馃檪

  • Loved this post Liz! I don't know much about ayurveda but those type of products really intrigue me! Have yet to try this lovely brand, so far I've only tried some products from Auromere 馃檪 xx
