Khadi® Natural Cosmetics
The history of the movement Khadi
The movement Khadi was founded in 1920 in India under the leadership of Mahatma Gandhi. The aim was to promote the products of Indian villages, as opposed to industrial products imported by the English colonial power. The objective of Khadi remained faithful to the initial movement: favouring the rural economy to improve the living conditions of the population. This involves excluding intermediaries and paying producers in a fair manner. Prices are set in advance and harvests are pre-funded.
Natural Ayurvedic cosmetics Khadi® are developed in collaboration with Indian experts from Ayurveda and incorporate medicinal plants, which are also used for Ayurvedic remedies.
Khadi® combines traditional Indian manufacture with modern requirements of natural and organic cosmetics. The products are produced under Ayurvedic license in India, close to plant harvesting or cultivation sites, and are certified according to the most demanding standards in Europe including the regulation of BDIH.
