I can’t say no to organic skin care products, so when I got an invitation to visit a new organic brand Botanic Love at Navya Decor Store, Lodhi Road, Delhi, I just had to go. The day was kind of hot and humid but taking metro from Gurgaon MG road to Jor Bagh, Delhi made it bearable. Following the google maps I reached at Navya, 33, Meharchand Market, Lodhi Road. Meharchand is quite an old market which has all type of shops, small to big, and you can find everything here. I did not have time to explore the market, so I straight went into the store Navya – Everything Beautiful.
There I was greeted by the store owner Vimi Singh, the face behind Botanic Love- Tina, her friend & the brand’s marketing personnel – Swati & beautiful free lance journalist Garima Dutt who invited me to the event. The warm welcome made me feel like home. The store is a cozy place in the basement of 33. Once you enter the store, you find your self surrounded with everything beauty. The place is loaded with beautiful decor items, ranging from coasters to show pieces, random knick-knack to beautiful tin boxes, magazine holders to cake holders… everything under one roof. I have something for cute pots. The place has an amazing range.
Coming to Botanic Love, is a brainchild of Tina. It’s an outcome of the pure love for organic ingredients that Tina has in her heart. She is a passionate person. She used to make handmade candles, slowly her passion grew and she started making soap bars for her kids to give them all natural love. She perused Cosmetology for the sole purpose of giving shape to her dream products. She told me about her struggle to procure raw material to manufacture quality products and later to get certified by the ministry of AYUSH. I am glad that she did not give up during her struggling days and she is here with 60 products that are chemical free, organic, vegan & cruelty free. There are ZERO parabenes or preservatives.
I was actually amazed how come the products have such a long shelf life (about 2 years) if there are no preservative? Tina says she goes the natural way to keep the products fresh for long. She uses natural preservatives, plus for the packaging, glass containers are preferred so that the products inside the containers do not react with the plastic packaging which other brands opt for to cut the cost. Very thoughtful, I must say.
The brand has every thing for everyone addressing all skin and hair problems. The brand offers a nice range of anti acne, anti pigmentation, anti ageing, anti hair fall creams, masks, scrubs, oils etc.
My skin is in bad soup right now. Some recent medication has been playing a havoc on my skin. Tina invited me to get a soothing session for my skin. She used only two products on my skin, Botanic Love Rosemary Facial Gel and Botanic Love Acne & Blemish Mask. She also advised me to use the same combination for few days to control the situation. I was really happy to see the after effects, my skin really calmed down and was all glowy. Grabbed the duo without hesitation.
Yummy cake and tea was served while I was still chatting with Tina. The day came to an end and I was presented a beautiful gift hamper that contained cute little things from both the brands – Navya & Botanic Love.
Thank you Navya & Botanic Love for having me there, it was really nice meeting you all and being there was quite an experience in itself.
