An average person lathers and sprays 10 different beauty products onto their skin every day. Unknowingly exposing themselves to a wide range of unnecessary chemicals, which eventually make their way into the bloodstream. Hence, it is important to make wise decisions when choosing a skincare product. Bangalore-based Vishisht Lifestyle is a brand that can be trusted.

The company aims to provide natural and eco-friendly alternatives to daily use skincare products by reducing its carbon footprint and contributing to a greener planet. “We believe nature has provided us with all the resources we need which is why we use natural ingredients like pure grade carrier oils, unrefined butter and pure essential oils in our products,” says Namrata, founder of Vishisht Lifestyle.

For Namrata, the idea to start Vishisht began when she noticed the development of some skin rashes one summer. She tried a couple of moisturisers but none could help. So, she decided to research on her own. It was then that she learnt about the nasty chemicals found in mass-produced skincare products. She then started looking for alternatives and learnt about the benefits of natural skincare. Soon, she started formulating different recipes for moisturisers, lip balms, skin scrubs etc and realized they all worked
wonderfully and gave great results. She also gave the products to her friends and family members to try. This went on for a year and a half after which she felt that she should offer these products to everyone. Thus, came into being Vishisht Lifestyle on May 10, 2018.

All the products offered by Vishisht are handmade and prepared in fresh batches. The ingredients used are 100 percent natural and certified organic. “We do not add any synthetic materials, stabilizers, preservatives etc. to adjust the form and consistency in our formulations as such our products come with an expiry period of one year and are delivered in their natural form,” adds Namrata. The company also steers free from usage of nasty chemicals such as sulphates, parabens, artificial fragrances, phthalates etc. These chemicals, according to Namrata, are harmful to the skin and may lead to various diseases and skin problems in the future.

Sua, a customer who used Vishisht’s coffee-based night cream said, “So, I have been suffering from acne and pigmentation, but being a busy woman, I have no time for my skin, so I decided to get my hands on this night cream and it did wonder to my skin also my dark circles have reduced to a certain level.” Another customer, also appreciated the products by Vishisht and said, “I have been searching for a natural deo and I'm glad I found this. It keeps the odour away and doesn't harm the skin in any way. A little goes a long way so it's definitely value for money”.

Besides ensuring that the ingredients of its products are all-natural, the company also ensures 100 percent plastic-free and sustainable packaging to promote low waste. “We offset 100 percent of our CO2 emission and wish to be a brand based on sustainability,” adds Namrata. The company over the past few months has been experiencing an increased revenue and has been consistently growing every month. Over the course of 3 years since its establishment, Vishisht has created approximately 16, all-natural products that cater to skin and hair care and going forward, the company wishes to cover the entire range of organic skincare while educating its customers to switch to an eco-friendly lifestyle.
