The organic collection is made of muslin grown and manufactured in an environmentally and socially responsible manner and the bamboo line ($40/3) is made of silky bamboo fiber muslin that is super soft. Pick from fashionable prints like pyara, diwali, mela, enchanted, bloom, star struck, safari, oasis, blue sky, and snuggle bug.

Rahua Organic Hair Care

Greenista Girl Neha

Want tresses that make the Pantene girls jealous? Get ready to stock up on Rahua’s new line of organic and alcohol-free hair care. You’re just a few weeks away (it launches in February) from thick, flowing, lustrous hair. The secret behind Rahua is the potent restorative oil that turns dull tresses into luscious locks. Unlike other botanical oils that simply coat strands, the extraordinarily small Rahua oil molecule has the ability to deeply penetrate, bond, and repair the hair’s cortex while smoothing its cuticle. They have a full line of hair care including shampoo, conditioner, hairspray, finishing treatment, and elixir. Plus, it’s free of synthetic chemicals, parabens, and sulfates and 100% vegan.
