Powdered Cleansers are an ancient recipe used for thousands of years to scrub/exfoliate and polish the skin. The traditionally prepared scrubs in the form of fine powders are making a strong comeback as a safe, highly effective and environmentally friendly alternative to gel-based highly scented, microplastic added chemicals and preservatives scrubs that we often see in the market. The Pahari Life's scrubs with plant-derived ingredients can bring glow, luster, and smoothness, improves hyperpigmentation, and treat all skin types including dryness, acne – blackheads & of course strengthen the skin barrier. These are made of finely powdered herbs and nuts & seeds (natural body scrub) with no addition of any chemicals and preservatives.
Scrub Making Process - Different herbs, nuts & seeds are sourced directly from the farmers and are then sun/shade-dried depending upon the herb requirement to prevent bug invasion. Traditional tools like iron or wooden mortar and pestle are used to crush and grind and soften the hard roots and stems to make their powder. Though this is time & labour intensive but helps retain the nutrient value of the herbs. The hand crushed and grinded herbs are milled into fine powder with the help of a flour mill. We do not use whole herbs directly in the flour mill as this can heat the machine leading to loss of nutrients in herbs. The herb flour is fine powdered using the cotton cloth as sieve. This helps produce fine powder suitable for application on the skin. The different fine powders are then blended as per the formulation.
