Today, the market is plagued with an increasing number of brands that advertise authentic organic products, but in reality, delivery chemical-heavy health and beauty products. According to studies, an average woman uses 12 personal care products a day containing a minimum of 168 different chemicals. Also, a recent study has revealed that the skin may absorb up to 60 percent of the chemicals in products that comes in contact with. In fact, a whole range of endocrine disrupting - chemicals are found in common personal care products like shampoos, respiratory diseases, skin disorders, and even malignant disease like cancer by damaging the immune system. Thus, looking at these adverse effects on the human body, there has been a significant rise in demand for adopting a new, natural lifestyle with health and beauty products that can aid people to look and feel beautiful and healthy without having to worry about any health hazards.

Perfectly understanding this situation, Timeless Beauty Secrets has been playing a significant role in offering products that are totally effective, delightful, organic, safe, affordable and also environmentally friendly. Their range of products and solutions are a re-imagination of treasured ancient beauty rituals from various civilizations; successfully melding ancient wisdom with today’s science to come up with potent regimes to enhance beauty or solve a concern.

Kindly enumerate on the major points/factors about your company and its entrepreneurial journey that you would like us to highlight in the article.
We started with simple everyday products like lip balm, lotion, soap and hair products. Soon we started making Anti-Ageing serums, products for hair fall control etc, based on the wisdom of our ancestors. Our early customers loved the products as their problems like dandruff, sensitivity etc was going away. That encouraged us to expand our range of offerings to cover most of the common lifestyle triggered problems of skin, hair and beauty Timeless Beauty Secrets is all about bettering the people’s lives by solving their concerns or just enhancing their natural beauty. We not only use only organic ingredients but we also make sure that all ingredients are of the highest level of safety
both to humans and the environment. We are much more than not using harmful chemicals like parabens, sulphates, silicones etc. We use ingredients that are approved by international organisations like COSMOS and our products are something that we would freely use on our own children.

What inspired you to establish Timeless Beauty Secrets?
The beauty category is unfortunately “ugly” where we have a whole host of malpractices and brands which do everything under the sun to keep the prices low and the appeal high. Also, most brands in the category green wash their labels to make it look natural, but, the reality is that most of them add a miniscule amount of natural ingredients while the rest of the product are chemical-based. All these lead to health hazards and causes many disorders like dandruff, hair fall, oily skin, acne etc .So we came up with products that are not merely “green washed” but are genuinely inspired by ancient wisdom, that truly works and which is a delight to use. All our products also environmentally friendly.

Women bring in a certain amount of gentleness, be it towards people or the environment while being strong at the same time
