Last Sunday, I met Malti Purushottam at a champagne brunch (which she came from Haridwar to attend), where everyone was toasting to the 15th anniversary of Forest Essentials. Who is she? Their first employee! Working with Mira Kulkarni & Samrath Bedi (the founders of Forest Essentials) literally since day one, she was smiling cheek-to-cheek as she spoke about the brand, now in it’s teen years, as she put it.

Like her, every member of the Forest Essentials family had a few stories and a lot of love to share! Just the way we like it. One of our favourites was about the First Lady Michelle Obama. During her last visit, she was gifted Forest Essentials by the ITC Group. A fitting homage to the #MakeInIndia campaign. The great part was that she loved the products. So much so, that she took more, as gifts for her friends and family.

Well, she’s not the only one…we’re big fans too! Here are 8 reasons that explain why!

1. Not Just A Pretty Face

100% natural, every product is made from the healthiest (and freshest) ingredients that mother nature has to offer. In fact, their mantra is: If you can’t eat it, don’t put it on your skin!

2. Devil In The Details

These guys pay extreme attention to detail – from what’s inside the bottle, to what’s on it.

3. Follow Your Heart

Samrath Bedi did! Meant to join a multinational company following his return from the US, he joined the two-member Forest Essentials team instead. And the rest, is history.

4. Share The Love

Socially responsibility, women empowerment, & a beautiful environment are causes that this brand supports with all its heart. They took their first step in 2005, by providing employment to local women in Rishikesh at their factory, helping them become financially independent.

5. Hair Oils With a Sweet Scent

While we know that oiling your hair is important, the old-school oils were not so nice to smell. But not anymore, thanks to the Head Massage Oil Range at Forest Essentials. Each oil has its own sweet scent – love!

6. Soundarya Secret!

This day cream is one of their best sellers. In fact, we’ve heard that they sell one Soundarya Day Cream every 6 minutes!

7. Going Overseas

After launching their beautiful e-store last year, they’re now shipping to 70 countries! So whether you’re in Japan, London or Nigeria, your Forest Essentials beauty haul will arrive at your doorstep. #shopping
