Veganism + Chemistry + Self Care
It was this magical formula which led 20-year-old Vidhi Panwar to kickstart a homegrown beauty label called Pine Cottage and Co. A passionate baker, she cleared up her bakery unit to make way for a customised "apothecary" to leverage her newly found passion into the vegan beauty industry. Months of research, hours of reading naturopathy books and multiple tests & trials later, she finally launched her brand in July 2020.
She opted for a small start by launching a range of face masks and facial cleansers. Organic ingredients, earth-friendly and cruelty-free, along with a great social media push, were some factors that helped their brand receive a great response. Result? Today their catalogue features approximately 50 unique vegan skincare and lifestyle products. These include facial cleansers, toner and moisturizer, face masque, lip balm, body polish and lotion, lip exfoliator, handmade soap bars, soy candles, coconut bowls, bamboo toothbrush and lots more.
Psst, we hear their body butter feels like velvet on your skin. Handmade with an innovate featherlight dry oil, their body butter leaves your skin thoroughly nourished and non-sticky. And did I mention how heavenly and divine their whipped soaps are? So folks, this brand is surely here to make bath time fun and definitely elevate your pampering sessions. And those looking for a gentle foot care session, they've got something special for that too. They have a four-step footcare kit which includes bubbling foot soak, foot mask, cuticle oil and foot balm - this foot care regime is surely bringing that salon-like experience home.
They've also launched dry shampoo and lash serum, which is almost always OOS. So, better get your hands on 'em when you spot them. Their collection starts at INR 350 and upwards.
Established on the foundation of being an environmentally conscious brand, the good peeps at Pine Cottage Co. package all their orders in recycled paper. So, brownie points for that.
