When we talk about going all Ayurveda, being close to nature and only applying *natural products*, do we really mean it? Of course, apart from the usual home packs that we create, or in my, what my grand mother suggests as being ‘organic'; the products that we buy in plastic bottles… are they really natural? You might want to do a background check on that jar of bottle again! Unlike other Indian brands that claim to be natural, but are in someway or the other chemically enhanced; Iraya is one such stand alone brand which really means what they claim to provide. I was recently invited to check out their Delhi store, which is located at The Promenade, Vasant Kunj. Right now as I am scribbling my blog about it, I am wearing one of their 100% natural face pack that needs to be refrigerated at all times. Not only it soothes out all the skin burns exposed throughout the day, it guarantees to leave behind a lightly moisturized skin (thank god for that!), that does not cry out for another dose of moisturization right after the application. These masks are made from finest natural sources including freshest flowers, freshest fruits and vegetables all mixed with absorbent clays for deep cleansing, toning and to rejuvenate the skin. Sweep away the dull and tired skin this summers as Iraya’s Fresh Masks reveal your brighter and smoother complexion.These perfectly blended fresh masks incorporate unique textures and colors, that need to be refrigerated and has expiry date of 2 weeks. About IRAYA The Iraya brand of beauty and wellness products was launched in 2006 by Sadatan Pure Ayurveda Pvt. Ltd. Sadatan has been manufacturing and exporting beauty and wellness products for over 20 years in highly evolved beauty markets like France, Italy, Russia …

Earth Day Celebrations with The Body Shop India

A couple of days back I was invited by The Body Shop, India, to celebrate Earth Day. Being an intensely dedicated team, they make their events very special and well defined. After experiencing an amazing Christmas Call with them last year, I was thrilled to witness some more pampering by The Body Shop India. The motive behind the meet was to spread a word about their generous campaign called “Wood Positive”. The best part about this campaign is that they have already contributed to the world’s resources by protecting and planting over 55,000 trees in the Ecuadorian Andes and the highly endangered Atlantic Rainforest. As I stepped inside their Select Citywalk, Saket store, I saw a lot of TBS lovers chit chatting, getting pampered and learning about the products. Personally, I loved the hand massage (with lot’s of knowledge about the products they used), the Olive Oil hamper pack (Drool worthy), the earth friendly decor and yummilicious snacks! Take a look at my experience through my photographs…. Press Release :  The Body Shop celebrated the first anniversary of the “Wood Positive” campaign on Earth Day. The campaign was officially launched in association with The World Land Trust on April 22, 2012, in a bid to help restore fragile habitats and regenerate land back to its true form, protecting the environment for the long-term.
