Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) about our products, manufacturing process, ingredients.

1. Are your products 100% synthetic free?
The Kajal is 100% natural and fragrance free. We use synthetic fragrance in other products.

2. Are your products free from all preservatives?
Products that contain water need to have preservatives. We use benzyl alcohol dehydroacetic acid and potassium sorbate in such products. Both these preservatives are approved for use in organic cosmetics by major organic certification agencies. 

3. Is your brand cruelty free? Are you certified cruelty free?
We are not certified cruelty free but our products are not tested on animals.

4. Is the brand organic certified? Do you use organic ingredients?
Our products are certified by FDA. We do not have any specific natural or organic certification. We use mostly natural or naturally-derived ingredients in our products. We try and use organic ingredients as well however these are not always available or certified organic.

5. Do you use palm oil in any of the products?
We do not use palm oil in our products. There are some ingredients which could be derived from palm or coconut oil. We directly obtain the ingredients e.g. caprylic capric triglyceride but the supplier does not always disclose the source.

6. Do the products contain natural mica?
No, we are not currently using mica in any of our products.

No.

We use PET plastic and polypropylene packaging for most of our products. PET is recyclable.

10. What is the recycling policy?
We don’t have an in-house policy on recycling the packaging material that we consume. However recycling implies collection of used material from customers which also means that we consume transportation resources, which in turn adds to the carbon footprint. Moreover, the extra cost of recycling will ultimately have to be bourne by customers. This is in conflict with our policy of trying to get our natural and safe cosmetic products in to the hands of maximum possible people by keeping them affordable.

11. What is the shelf life of your products?
Shelf life is 2 years from the date of manufacturing.

12. Does the brand work with a local community, or contribute to a cause ?
“Ehsas Matimand Mulanche Balgruh” in Satara, Maharashtra. It’s a residential school for mentally and physically challenged children (with special needs), children with Down’s Syndrome or Cerebral Palsy. We are associated with them for 10 years now.

“Aakar Foundation” run by Ujwala Paranjape in Sangli, Maharashtra. We are associated with them from the day they were founded 3 years back. This organization works for the education and overall development of underprivileged children.
