6. Forest Essentials
Forest Essentials was founded in the year 2000 after many years of meticulous research. After many years of development with trained Ayurvedic physicians, a range of natural skin care and hair care products was evolved. The view that Ayurveda advocates, is that a holistic approach is necessary for beauty care.
The products are not made in factories in industrial areas, but in the Himalayas, in villages in Uttaranchal, using local labor. Our own spring water has therapeutic and regenerative qualities and has been certified by laboratories in France as being rich in mineral deposits, which makes for its unique properties. This water is used in all the products.
Forest Essentials has revived traditional ingredients which have been used in many old Ayurvedic recipes. One such product is Kokum Butter made from the Kokum tree, unique to the western coastal regions of southern India. Kokum butter is milder creamier and richer in texture than Cocoa butter. It has the highest proportion of essential fatty acids vital for the metabolism of healthy skin. Vitamin A, C & E are present in the butter as natural anti-oxidants. Another exceptional ingredient is 100% natural raw-cane sugar, which comes from a certain strain of sugarcane which has potent properties to hydrate the skin. This sugar retains natural molasses in its sugar crystals, which attract moisture to the skin. Advanced skin care formulations that use the most potent and sophisticated natural extracts and actives, avoiding synthetic compounds, are made using these ingredients to produce an amazing product range.
My favorite product was the Eternal Youth Formula. The texture is luxuriously silky and at the first test itself it left my skin so smooth and hydrated. This is an Ancient formulation that visibly diminishes signs of ageing by eliminating fine lines and restoring firmness.

Now after all the fashion and beauty stores, i headed to Crosswords. Absolutely my favorite store to go check out some good books, Dvds and games. They house a wide range of books, for all ages, for all hobbies and professions. From genres like Health & Fitness to Spirituality, from Business & economy to cooking and gardening. A spacious interior and friendly staff makes Crosswords so inviting and i spent a lot of time going through all the latest released books and Dvds.
