Tell us about Radha Organics. How did the brand get its start?
Radha Organics is a new line from Radha Beauty, a line that is close to our Co-Founder’s heart. Growing up, Rebekah Letch fondly remembers how her family embodied ayurvedic treatments, which is everything her family grew up using to heal her body and skin.
Rebekah, a trained ballerina since the age of three, a graduate of the Juilliard School and other prestigious universities turned her passion into a product that encourages women to embrace their natural beauty.
Tell us about Refreshing Clean Cleanser. What are the key ingredients and what are their benefits?
One of the key ingredients for our Radha Organics Refreshingly Clean Cleanser is thyme. This amazing herb has a strong herbaceous, spicy aroma that is energizing, stimulating and toning. In addition to the aroma, thyme can also be used as an effective anti-microbial, deodorizing agent that is used in regulating sebum in the skin, making it a perfect ingredient for cleansers and acne treatments.
Another key ingredient is fuller’s earth (multani mitti) Using fuller’s earth on the face is an Indian age-old tradition. Fuller’s Earth is well known for its oil absorbing properties and detoxifying the skin. It also works wonders for acne prone skin as it soothes, reduces redness and flaming irritation, it instantly cools the skin down irritated skin. When used with gram flour, fuller’s earth brightens the skin, gives an instant glow to your face.
Our favorite is lemongrass, which is native to India and Sri Lanka. Lemongrass is an anti-microbial and anti-bacterial herb that will help limit bacterial or microbial growth on the skin. It can help ward off skin infections as well as lessen skin issues caused by bacterial infections, like folliculitis and cellulitis. Lemongrass is also fungicidal, which means it helps cure fungus infections on the skin. Lemongrass also acts as an astringent, which helps minimize the pores, limit the secretions of oil and provide a temporary skin-firming treatment.
Does this product work on all skin types?
Yes, it does. Based on ayurvedic treatments, our Radha Organics line works on all skin types and especially sensitive skin.
What other products would you suggest as a follow up to the refreshingly clean cleanser?
I recommend the Radha Organics Baby Skin Moisturizer followed by the Younger Face Moisturizer after cleansing, for anti-aging and brightening of sunspots and age spots. If you have acne prone skin, you should apply the Radha Organics Clear Skin Anti-Acne Moisturizer after the Baby skin moisturizer.
Tell us about baby skin moisturizer and how it got its name.
The Baby Skin Moisturizer uses the moisturizing power of mango butter, coconut, jojoba, and glycerin. This amazing moisturizer will leave your skin feeling baby soft – hence the name. People who have used our moisturizer said they felt like their skin was softer than ever, like baby skin.
What are the essential ingredients?
The essential ingredients are mango butter, coconut, jojoba and glycerin.
Mango butter soothes and softens the skin without leaving it greasy. It offers protection against UV radiation and helps with rashes, insect bites, skin irritations and eczema. Mango butter also helps heal and protect the skin from damage caused by sunburn and frostbite. Due to its high antioxidant content, mango butter is also anti-aging. The triterpenes found in mango butter also helps heal and prevent the skin from aging, reduces the look of lines and wrinkles and helps keep your skin healthy.
