What's the deal with cold-pressed oils, you might wonder? Why are they better than the mass-produced variety most of us are used to? Well, here's the tea. Cold-pressed oils are actually far better and healthier for you. That's because the process itself does not damage all the natural goodness that's extracted from the ingredients like all those anti-oxidants you keep hearing about and Vitamin E, too.
So when we found Purva Naturals, a brand that's all making clean, pure and organic cold-pressed oils we were pretty excited. And that's for two reasons, one, the cook in me is excited as these oils are far more flavourful and nutrient-rich. They've got organic coconut oil, groundnut oil and sesame oils that are sure to add a punch of flavour to any dish you're cooking. And two, they also have a line of Ayurvedic-inspired oils that are meant for your skin and hair like the Bringraj Hair Oil, Skincare Oil and the Lemongrass Ayurvedic Oil.
Plus, the brand works with rural communities and particularly women and local farmers to adopt a more fair, sustainable and healthy economic model that's about supporting the local workforce. Pretty awesome, right. Prices start at INR 320 for their products which is also pretty pocket-friendly so that's an added bonus.
