If there’s one trend that got us hooked onto this year, it’s sustainability. And beauty has taken that route with a pinch of wellness and good ingredients added in good measure to ensure a 360 degree approach to health. When it comes to beauty and wellness labels, no one can beat the sincerity and the sanctity of Pahadi Local – the popular wellness label that has taken cities by storm. With the bounty from the himalayas as their foundation, the label looks to introduce us to wellness that’s simple, effortless and sustainable in every way. Whether it’s the stellar ingredients, the care with which the packaging is designed, the green initiatives or fair pricing – Pahadi Local aims to keep it as real, as authentic and as minimalist as possible.
The fact that the ingredients are fresh and farmed right there adds to the charm of this quaint label. Founded by Jessica Jayne, a serial entrepreneur, the label looks at local recipes and remedies as a base for the beautiful products they produce. Though we must recommend their staple, Gutti Ka Tel, a divine apricot kernel oil that has fast become a must-have in every celebrity beauty kit.
