Herbalism, also known as herbal medicine or phytotherapy, is an important part of traditional medicine systems across the world. People have used plants as the basis for medical treatments for centuries and even millennia. Modern medicine doesn’t recognize phytotherapy as a scientific practice, but it does use many plant-derived ingredients as the basis for pharmaceutical drugs.

Herbal medicine is still widely practised today in many countries. For example, in India, up to 80% of people use Ayurveda or some other form of traditional medicine. Ayurvedic treatments have complex formulas comprising 30 or more ingredients, including a big number of plant-derived ingredients. The principles of Ayurveda are also used to make natural skin and hair care products. Ayurvedic plants that can often be found in natural cosmetics include amla, bhringraj, neem, shikakai, reetha, and more.

Ukrainian-Indian beauty brand Chandi has launched a line of Ayurvedic herbal powders designed to take good care of all skin and hair types. Each of these powders is a 100% natural product that has a wide range of useful properties.

The line comprises herbal powders derived from Ayurvedic plants, such as amla, shikakai, washnut (reetha), neem, indigo and neutral henna. It also includes herbal hair & body wash powder and herbal hair powder, each based on a blend of Ayurvedic herbs. Let us take a closer look at some of these products to learn more about their useful properties and cosmetic benefits.

Amla powder can be used for both skin and hair care. Amla (also known as emblic or Indian gooseberry) is rich in vitamin C. It also contains polyphenols and bioflavonoids. Due to its high antioxidant content, amla has a strong anti-age effect. Regular use of amla powder helps to prevent premature skin ageing and smooth out fine lines. Face masks with amla produce a slight lifting effect, improve complexion, and prevent oily shine. Hair masks with amla make the hair thicker and stronger, restore its natural healthy shine and elasticity.

Shikakai powder is derived from Acacia concinna, a climbing shrub native to India. Its Hindi name translates literally into English as “fruit for hair”. Due to its high content of saponins, shikakai is traditionally used as a shampoo. While it doesn’t produce much lather, shikakai is a great cleanser with a naturally low pH. It doesn’t irritate the skin or strip the hair of natural oils. Shikakai effectively reduces dirt and excess sebum, removes dead epidermal cells, stimulates skin regeneration, and prevents tangled hair. Shikakai powder is a great alternative to shampoo, soap, shower gels, and other store-bought detergents.

Reetha powder is a 100% natural detergent, just like shikakai. Reetha, also known as washnut or Indian soapberry, has been used as a cleanser for hair, skin and clothing for centuries. Due to its high saponin content, soapberry has pronounced detergent properties. When used as a shampoo, reetha makes the hair stronger, helps to restore its natural shine and elasticity, and eliminates dandruff. You can also use reetha powder as a face cleanser. It will help to make your skin smoother and relieve inflammation. Besides, the product has a light peeling effect. It delicately removes dead epidermal cells and stimulates skin renewal.

Neem powder is a strong natural antiseptic. Products made from neem, also known as Indian lilac, have been used in India for over two millennia for their medicinal properties. Thanks to its antiseptic effect, neem helps to get rid of acne, prevents inflammation, and eliminates dandruff. Neem powder also has moisturising properties. It repairs dry and damaged hair, as well as restores its natural health and shine. You can use neem powder to make DIY face masks or add it to store-bought cosmetics.

Neutral henna powder is a popular hair care product. Although it is named “henna”, it is not derived from the same plant as henna dye. Neutral henna, also known as colourless henna, is obtained from dried leaves of Italian senna (Cassia obovata). It is commonly used to take care of weak and dull hair, damaged by dyeing, bleaching, perm, frequent blow-drying or heat styling. Neutral henna strengthens the hair, helps to keep it hydrated, nourishes hair follicles, and has a conditioning effect.
