This blog is about one of my favorite brand Biotique and are biotique products chemical free or not. I would also give my honest opinion about few of biotique’s favorite products like-biotique bio bhringraj hair oil, biotique green apple shampoo review,biotique coconut whitening & brightening cream review & biotique morning nectar review.
I was fortunate enough to spend few of my childhood summer vacations at my small village in U.P (my grandparent’s home) stunning green field of Paddy, and vibrant green field of various crops, those sugarcane fields, and lovely beautiful birds was like a treat for a city slicker like me. On top of that early morning guest in the backyard, they were my Grandfathers regular visiting one’s because breakfast, lunch, and dinner were provided on a platter with water. Our National Bird. Beautiful morning! Beautiful life! Few glimpse of villagers and their life:
finding a garden fresh cauliflower could be a reason for someone to smile.
coal is still the only medium of fuel in few kitchens of villagers.
even in the village, your morning routine can be the best excuse to check your whats app account…..
I am a girl who loves seasons, that is the reason I have always fallen in love with the product which reminds me about nature, about our soil, but many of us do not understand if herbal and Ayurveda products are same as natural products or are they something else? Today I thought to give you an idea about Ayurveda, Natural and Herbal terms and how they are different from each other, also my love for one Ayurveda brand Biotique.
So let’s start with the terms, Herbal, Natural & Ayurveda and what these terms really mean;
Made up of plant extract, plant roots & plants leaves etc. These are free from chemicals; however, pesticides may have been used in their growing. In the beauty industry, herbal is the most generic term out there, by just incorporating a part per thousand or even part per million of any herb make something a herbal formula in most countries. They are not bound with any local or Global standards, like min % level of herbs necessary, product efficacy norms or their raw material standards.
Made from plants and minerals that occur in nature, not in a laboratory, however, pesticides, chemical fertilizers might have been used to enhance their growth. Generally, they are free of common chemicals like artificial fragrance, colorant, preservatives etc. These are slightly tighter in norms if compare with herbal but not everywhere. A product being claimed as natural may have as low as 1% natural ingredient. So think before buying.
Ayurveda is medicinal science which includes the use of herbs as well as heavy metals like gold, silver, copper, mercury, Sulphur, tin, animal extract etc. They are almost exclusively Indian-centric and known for its patient-specific approach. They are mostly bounded by global and local standards bodies, therefore holds better trust and loyalty than natural or herbal categories, if at all. Raw materials are highly standardized in ayurvedic products hence I highly recommend ayurvedic products over natural or herbal, but still I would say always read the ingredient list and look for certification from a reputed certifier.
Now if I talk about my favorite Ayurvedic product range then for sure it is from Biotique. I haven’t met any product so far from this brand which I didn’t like. How many times I have bought products from this brand again and again that I have lost count and if you are thinking weather biotique products are good or not and are they really chemical free then yes they are free from harsh chemicals. Few of my daily essentials from the skin and hair range are:

Okay so this is the cream which I used the first time when I visited New Delhi a few years back in winters, In Delhi when it’s below 200C all regular liquid lotions don’t do the trick, sometimes creams are not enough but this cream has changed my perception. This cream is very light formula which leaves a moisturized and nourished skin behind, for combination skin like me this was like a magic potion especially for my dark spots, I could see a noticeable change in my dark spot just after few weeks of daily morning work.
