How Organiko is Beautifying Life with Donkey Milk

Hey beautifuls, I have always been very particular about my skincare. I used to have a fondness for herbal soaps before because of the various ingredients and the amazing fragrances. However, I found out that my skin was turning to get quite dry with their use. Then I shifted to using paraben and sls free shower creams and gels. However, for those who are addicted to soap bars but are scared to apply in the fear of getting dry skin, I have a good news. I have found the best cleansing bar ever, in the form of Organiko, a brand made with the goodness of donkey milk. Sounds quite fascinating and unique right? let's delve a little deeper into the brand's vision.

About Organiko & Their Vision

Their motivation is to bring us organic beauty products created from the most unexpected of ingredients, Donkey Milk. Unexplored to a large extent in recent history, it not only offers one of the most effective beauty regimes in the world but uplifts and financially supports some of the most marginalized and underprivileged communities of modern India, the owners of these loving and hardy being.

More than a brand they like to call themselves a social venture that started out as a Master's degree project. The idea was to create an alternative livelihood for the marginalized donkey owners of the Solapur district in the state of Maharashtra. Families migrated from surrounding villages to try and give themselves a better chance at life working at construction sites and so on, the donkeys serving as load bearing beasts bringing in a little extra money. The conditions of the workers and the animals were alarmingly poverty-stricken and thus Organiko started its venture of providing them a better opportunity of survival.

My Skincare Journey with Rzizhi

Hey beautifuls, I have been living under a burrow for more than 2 months and all these while I have been concentrating only on me and myself. I have been taking care of myself like never before with the right way of skincare and exercise. But I really missed you all and decided to be back in action. Throughout these 2 months I have been using skincare products from Rzizhi, a cruelty-free handmade  luxury skincare brand.

The word Zizhi means "homemade" in Mandarin. RZizhi skin care products are made with love and care at home with fresh ingredients. They like to call their skin care range as treatment rather than cosmetic.

About Rzizhi Products

I have been using these bundle of joys from Rzizhi for the last 2 months and I am quite obsessed by the goodness the range possesses. The products have been specially formulated for my dry skin type. That is one of the specialties of the brand where they adjust and determine the formulation of each product according to the need of the individual.

1. Rub,Rub,Rub! Rs. 600 for 100g

This is a physical scrub for both face and body. It is made with 3 salts- Dead Sea, Epsom and Hiamlayan Pink Salts along with various herbs. Now as par current global beauty standards physical exfoliation has been getting quite the hatred in recent times. I too had been avoiding it for sometime now but this scrub changed my thought process. The scrub has large salt grains but since they are soaked in an ample of exotic oils, they are very gentle and moisturizing for the skin.

I have been using it every night as a cleanser and my skin looks fresher and youthful without any damage or tear. The skin feels so smooth and soft after I use this.
