“Clean” beauty has increasingly become the standard for all goods. Consumers are conscious of what is going into the products they put on their face, their hair, and their body. “Clean” meaning all-natural, gives a clear knowledge of what’s in a product, without the long list of chemicals on the back of the bottle nobody can pronounce.
For over 20 years, Reshma Beauty has been pioneering in the holistic way of living, targeting hair, skin, and body to ensure the best “clean” options out there! Reshma Beauty is a family-owned business originating with the current CEO Reshma Dordi’s father. Naming the company after her, Reshma carried on her father’s love of nature as well as sharing South Asian beauty rituals that have passed down generations.
According to Dordi, they have “nature’s best-kept secret” in their products. Have a guess on what it may be? It’s Henna! Reshma Beauty uses Henna which is the key staple that differs them from the rest. Made from plants grown in South Indian subcontinent regions, once dried, the plant has organic properties that color and condition the hair. A goal of Reshma Beauty is to take the likes of Henna and South Asian beauty and make it accessible to everyone. The company’s products are all-inclusive!
You have two beautiful semi-permanent hair color products to choose from: Classic Henna and 30-Minute Henna. Both of which gently coat, moisturizes, and strengthens the hair thanks to the secret ingredient Henna! The hard part is what kind of hair look you’re going to rock. If you want one color all over go with the Classic Henna. For highlights, the 30-Minute Henna works best; they both come in numerous shades to choose from!
Sometimes you may have a heavy hand with your blow-dryer or hair straightener leaving it as dry as the Sahara Desert. It happens to the best of us. For some extra hair TLC, Reshma Beauty also has a line of hair serums and oils to further nourish the hair and skin. Their serum is infused with Keratin that’ll leave the hair silky-smooth and voluminous, ooh la la. Their hair and skin oils are perfect for either dry or normal texture and contain five beneficial oils.
Turmeric is also a primary ingredient in the company’s products. Not only for consumption, but it also has amazing qualities that enhance the skin as well. Key products include Ubtan- a turmeric face mask, a turmeric cleanser, and soap. Benefits that Reshma Beauty highlights are turmeric’s anti-inflammatory properties and treatment for skin conditions like psoriasis and eczema. It’s also encouraged to hydrate the skin afterward with either turmeric cream or lotion, depending on the consistency you like.
Another staple is the Multani Mitti- Fuller’s Earth Face Mask. This mask clarifies, tones, and exfoliates the skin. It’s a powder that’s made from restorative minerals of volcanic ash that you mix with a liquid to get a paste consistency. My favorite benefit from the mask is that it reduces acne pigmentation and lightens blemishes. As someone who struggles with acne (especially hormonal acne), I like to use face masks during “that time of the month” to help my skin. If the same goes for you, mix this face mask together and your mood will boost, and your insides will match the outside that’s looking so beautiful; it works for all skin types!
The best thing about Reshma beauty is the products are designed to ensure you look good, so you feel good. You’ll especially feel good knowing that all these products are “clean”, making you evidently radiant!
