    Riverside Nectar

    This line of pocket-friendly and organic (no, the two don't have to be mutually exclusive) body care is currently making a mark in the market for its high-quality range of face care, body care, and hair care products. Riverside Nectar honours the goodness of nature and puts it to good use in their 'shop by nature section'.

    Hills + Herbs

    Hills + Herbs

    Available on LBB

    Hills + Herbs says it all in its name but we must dig deeper and give you the stunning introduction this brand totally deserves. Though we already love the eco-friendly, plastic-free packaging and the rustic "natural" look of Hills + Herbs, the actual products speak for themselves too. Only flowers and herbs make into their skincare and lifestyle products, and this is after the Founder dedicated time to studying and testing natural and sustainable skincare. The brand also responsibly sources ingredients from small and independent farmers in Kashmir, Himachal, Kerala, Uttar Pradesh, Haryana, and Uttrakhand. Hills + Herbs focus is also to empower with nature, and thus far, their botanical soaps and shampoo bars have been hits. Prices range between INR 250 to INR 450.

    Ozone Signature

    Ozone Signature

    Available on LBB

    Featured on Elle India, Grazia and pretty much every beauty/skincare influencer and blogger's handles - there are tons of reasons why we love Ozone Signature too. First off, every oil carefully crafted to pamper your scalp and skin has made its way from a certified organic farm into a bottle. Ozone Signature's signature recipes are also all about that ancient ayurvedic life. Mixtures derived from rare plants, unaltered and potent, target all concerns - hair fall to pigmentation, scars, and wrinkles. The complex oils may be a little pricey, but a little goes a long way, so Ozone Signature is definitely a wise investment. Besides, shelling out a few dollars for some R&R never hurt nobody. Prices for the oils range between INR 975 to INR 2,500.

    You've got to have some faith and patience in Faith & Patience, but trust that it won't be long before you see results. After all, a secret but not-so-secret ingredient makes it into all of their products - camel milk. You heard that right, Faith & Patience has concocted India's first camel milk shampoo and conditioner made from fresh camel milk and the reviews are par excellence. Super hydrating, strengthening, conditioning and hair-loving are only a few of the adjectives we've heard of the hair products from this dermatologically tested and sulfate-free brand. For your body care routine, they've got camel milk wax and soaps too. Basically, a whole collection (hair, skin, and body) of soothing and aesthetically pleasing (some cool packaging and colours - red/blue/green shampoos) products for you to give a whirl.
