Some Shampoo's leave the hair feeling too dry - personally I have experienced this when trying out all natural Shampoos in particular.
We recently tried the Mukti Organics Bontanique Shampoo and Conditioner which left our scalp feeling refreshed and our ends silky.
We loved that this product was appropriate for all hair types and non-drying.
The key ingredients of this shampoo and conditioner include Desert Lime & Lemon Basil. These ingredients add to the unique aroma of the shampoo and conditioner. It is also great to know that both the shampoo and conditioner are VEGAN. GLUTEN, NUT, WHEAT, SILICONE & SULFATE FREE.
For a full list of ingredients be sure to visit the Mukti Organics website.
Even with a good shampoo and conditioner, you still need
a little extra to tame those annoying flyaways. That is why
We also had the oppurtunity to have a Q&A with the founder of Mukti Organics, find out what they had to say below;
1. What’s the ‘nutshell’ story behind Mukti Organics?
Back in the day before the turn of the century, there wasn’t a great deal of organic skin care around. My background in natural therapies was a stepping stone into cosmetic chemistry and concocting lotions and potions for myself, family, friends and clients. I started with the basics - cleanse, tone, moisturise. As I learnt along the way, I added to the collection. I pedaled my wares at the local markets and went around knocking on doors just like Colonel Sanders. Then along came the Internet and kapow, the game changed. Now it’s a whole new arena to play in. I’m glad I recognised a niche way back and got a foot hold in the door.
2. What makes Mukti different to other brands on the market?
I started a while ago. I feel like a bit of a veteran of organic skincare. We were one of the first in Australia, so we have a loyal following. We’ve had a few makeovers but the look and the feel and everything about the products are finally where I want them to be positioned – Eco Luxe.
I don’t like to make label claims and make a hoo haa about ingredients that are not in a formulation in any viable quantity. If an active ingredient is in the bottle, it’s for a damn good reason and in a sufficient amount for it to have an effect.
We’re vegan now I took out any honey and beeswax and made a stance.
We use these amazing cellular extracted native Australian extracts that are off the ORAC scale with vitamins, antioxidants and other skin nourishing nutrients.
3. Why natural and/or organic?
I find that a crazy question - more like why synthetic and chemical? It’s an environmental and social responsibility. We can’t keep consuming and living without a conscience and not become dinosaurs. As fatalistic as that seems our time is limited. It’s simple and logical. The chemical industry is destroying the planet. What we buy and wash down the drain is contributing to our demise. Organics should not even be a label. Once-a-pun-a-time everything was organic and from nature and then we came along and created the industrial revolution, but now we’re turning back and embracing what nature has to offer.
4. Tell us more about the importance of keeping the skin happy...
It doesn’t matter what you slap on your skin. It will only ever be as great as what you put in. So my six do do’s are:
- Get enough sleep 6 hours plus – uninterrupted is best. Shut your eyes and brain down before 10pm.
- Reduce stress – meditate say “OM” a lot and breath
- Drink rehydrating yummy stuff like water and coconut water and herbal teas. Minimise the booze to fun times with friends rather than daily.
- Cleanse, cleanse, cleanse ahhh did I say cleanse and don’t use soap.
- Eat organic, fresh, vegan nothing dead or white.
- Move your body bag in an active and intentional way. We’re not designed to be sedentary.
5. What is your perfect combination companion.. I.e. Water?
Activated pecans with white mulberries – I carry these around in my dag bag and in the car in case of hunger pangs between meals.
