Ten-second takeaway

Handmade and naturally derived, Areev’s range of bath and skincare products promise to pamper your skin.

Skin deep

Contemporary products that stay true to Indian roots – that’s what Ally Mathan {known for being one of the founders of the  #100sareepact} and Apoorva Sadanand had in mind for Areev, their natural and handmade bath and skincare range. Launched in 2010, the brand offers soaps, shampoos, conditioners, body butters, moisturisers, lip balms, scrubs and face washes. Made with vegetable oils, essential oils and petroleum-free ingredients, they come in five delightful blends of fragrances – Cocoa Cream, Fig and Vanilla, Tulsi and Mint, Oil of Olives, and Citrus and Turmeric. Look out for the body butters in their recently-introduced packaging made of lacquered wood, the handiwork of craftsmen from Channapatna.

Choosing right

Troubled by dry hair? Pick their Traditional South Indian Hair Blend. If you’re prone to blemishes on your skin, the Citrus and Turmeric line of products is recommended. We love that their website lets you select according to sections like Category {such as Cleanse, Condition and Hydrate}, Concern {looking for something to beat the dandruff or to soothe your skin, perhaps?}, Line {choose from the five fragrances available} and Skin/Hair Type. So, your search for a shampoo or moisturiser that is perfectly suited for your skin might just end here. If not, you can even contact them to customise and create some for yourself!
