These days, We all are concerned a lot about eating the right food. Starting from the supermarket shelves, we reach out for products labeled “gluten-free” and “all-natural.” etc. Well, When you think that one must eat foods that contain natural ingredients; shouldn’t the same apply to your skincare? Most skincare products available today have parabens in them. Though, cosmetics regulatory has accepted to include parabens in skincare products for many years, recent researches have shown that exposure to parabens may cause reproductive issues, and are also linked to an increased risk of cancer. It’s important to look for skincare that’s free of harmful chemicals, irritants, preservatives, allergens etc.In today’s post I am introducing another fabulous Indian Skincare brand I came across.
