Healthy Hues with Organica's Holi Colors

Editors posted on 2nd March

The season of colors is upon us once again and we've been getting geared up to go all out. After all, Holi does come around only once a year. Our only problem with the festival of colors is that long after the merriment has subsided, we still roam around with unsightly patches of color all over, and worst of all- under our fingernails. It's not a pretty sight, we're sure you all agree and after much lamenting, we've found a solution for everyone- Organica Holi Colors.

Organica, aged three, has been producing and distributing certified organic products within Delhi- NCR, across 200 different stores. They've stuck to a few basic high-demand products such as tea and pickle, and have done them well. Hand-made, sans artificial additives, Organica's products include 11 types of teas, forest honey, a multitude of spices and 8 types of pickles and now, for a safe, hue-filled Holi, organic Holi colors.

Drawing from natural raw materials {think haldi, henna and beetroot}, these colors have been made keeping in mind the effect that powders loaded with chemicals have on our skin, hair and let's face it, we're all a touch vain- overall appearance. Pick from the three basic shades- Organic Basant Yellow, Organic Dhaani Green and Organic Gulabi Pink, which contain ingredients such as tulsi, multani mitti, carrots and maize flour. We'd say these colors are the opposite of chemical colors, and are actually good for you, and they'll serve the purpose just as well.

Notes in our Little Black Book |

While we would love to throw caution to the wind and go all out this Holi {and we would have too, at one point of time}, the older and wiser part of us quips up, warning us of the consequences of chemical colors. So, we're turning to Organica to color us safe this Holi. They're offering up three, handmade hues- Basant Yellow, Dhaani Green and Gulabi Pink. The ingredients are good for you, and you'll manage to avoid the semi-diseased look everyone sports post the festival. Win-win!
