Right from its inception in 2001 up till now, Ananda has stuck to its ideology of holistic wellness for the body, mind and soul. And that is exactly what their products embody. Crafted by aromatherapists of the highest caliber, the brand’s products have been used in its namesake spa for over 16 years. Since the brand’s ethos focuses heavily on the aspect of being one with nature, and so only the finest, most natural ingredients have been used to make these products. For the uninitiated, we’d suggest you get started with the Ananda Detoxifying Body Scrub & Bath Salt with Juniper, Grapefruit and Cypress, along with the Ananda Detoxifying Body Oil for ultra-nourishment. Their Ayurvedic skin care product range is to die for. You can thank us later!
Ayurveda isn’t just a way of life, but also a science - the kind that your hair needs. The brand connects well-being, beauty and sustainability, to create thoughtful hair care products that are deeply rooted in nature and derived from plants, non-petroleum minerals and water. Apart from creating products that are revered by salon-goers globally, what’s admirable about Aveda is their thoughtful packaging, made from recycled material. For healthy, silky smooth hair, our top picks from their range would be the Aveda Cherry Almond Softening Shampoo and the Aveda Cherry Almond Softening Conditioner.
