With an endeavour to bring back the benefits of ancient traditions in a range of highly pure, effective and safe products for busy modern lives, PARAMA NATURALS uses only highly effective and pure plant extracts like supercritical CO2 extracts, essential oils and cold-pressed plant oils of 

time-tested power-houses of nature. They are used in appropriate measures to ensure efficacy when even a little amount of the product. is used.

Each ingredient has multiple benefits. These benefits are listed in ancient Ayurvedic texts, books on aromatherapy and corroborated by modern scientific research. 

Efficacy and purity is ensured by using plant extracts of the purest and highest quality of ingredients, most of which are food grade and active-ingredient-rich supercritical CO2 extracts.

CO2 extracts are approved by the Ayurveda Pharmacoepia and the Ayush Ministry. They are also approved by international agencies like the USFDA, IFOAM, Japan and European standards. Some are steam-distilled essential oils. The bases are only virgin cold-pressed natural oils or seed butters, which retain the natural fatty acids, vitamins and minerals and hence, have therapeutic effects.

Some of the key ingredients used are listed below

1. TURMERIC CO2 EXTRACT  

Turmeric (हल्दी, हरिद्र or Curcuma longa) is India’s ancient secret ingredient for skincare and wellness. 

We all know that TURMERIC, is inextricably woven into the fabric of Indian culture through cultural ceremonies, rituals, and daily life. It was recommended in the Ayurvedic texts for its protective, preventive, therapeutic, balancing, healing and cosmetic properties. Modern science acknowledges its immunity-boosting, anti-inflammatory, antiseptic, anti-bacterial, antifungal, anti-anxiety, soothing, stimulating anti-oxidant properties. It was applied regularly for babies, children, teenagers, brides-to-be, young couples, women of all ages, to counter the effects of age, environment and life-style, and to prevent and address specific issues like acne, blemishes, scars and uneven skin tone. So application of turmeric paste on the skin gives a protective shield (हल्दी का सुरक्षा कवच) from the ravages of the environment, time or hectic lifestyles.

Despite these benefits, Turmeric has stopped being a main-stream skincare ingredient that people used in their daily lives. Why? As modern lives became busy and fast-paced, application of turmeric became unappealing because it was yellow staining for the skin and clothes, messy and time-consuming, as one had to leave them on for a while before washing off.

PARAMA NATURALS has brought back the magic of turmeric into daily use in busy modern lives through a range of turmeric-powered 100% natural skincare and wellness essentials. They are stain-free quick-absorbing, non-greasy, convenient and quick to use on-the-go especially suited for busy people who need to juggle work, chores at home, personal health and well-being of the family. Everyone can now get the benefits of turmeric application on the face and body in just 2 minutes.

The cornerstone of Parama Naturals' Turmeric-powered 100% Natural Blends for skincare and wellness is a stain-free turmeric oil, extracted using the CO2 supercritical extraction process, a 100% solvent-free process, and regarded as safe (GRAS) as per USDA.

This stain-free turmeric extract, the turmerone-rich extracted turmeric essential oil is combined together with cold pressed oils of Coconut, Sesame, Sweet Almond, Castor, Kokum. All these are powerhouses of nature; they nourish the skin and work on different skin issues like blemishes, pigmentation, dark circles, wrinkles, suntan, etc. With no added fragrances, and from the natural calming aroma of turmeric which lasts for a few minutes only, these oils also work well for people with very sensitive skins or allergies to strong fragrances.

The formulations are only with the ingredients that are mentioned on the products. 100% natural, with no added chemicals, colours, fragrances or fillers; made from food grade ingredients.
