What makes Ishani products so effective? 

We, at Ishani, ensure that we deliver the best for our customers with the highest quality, GMO free, certified organic products. We also have a rigorous stage of quality assurance testing that ensures only the best from nature gets into our bottles! 


Why has Ishani chosen to be organic and GMO free? 

Some of the chemicals that you normally see in your cosmetic products are also found in what you eat. The digestive system breaks down most of these chemicals and is usually flushed out from the body. However, with the case of skin application, these chemicals like parabens and phthalates are not broken down by the digestive enzymes and directly enter into our bloodstream and eventually to the organs. You should give the same importance for your skin as for the food you eat. What goes ON you ends up IN you. 


Are Your Products Bio Degradable? 

Our Bath and Body Range use bio degradable ingredients and so are fine to take with you if you’re lucky enough to go to eco camps! 


Do Your Products Contain Gluten? 

Our shampoos and conditioners contain hydrolyzed wheat protein to smooth and condition the hair shaft. This means that there could be gluten present in these products. All other products are wheat/gluten free. 


Do Your Products Contain Palm Oil? 

None of our products contain Palm Oil 


Do You Test Your Products On Animals? 

Absolutely not. 


Are Your Products Suitable For Sensitive Skin? 

Our facial skincare products have all been clinically and dermatologically tested on a panel of people with sensitive skin, and have produced no reactions. The test house have confirmed that our products can claim to be suitable for sensitive skin. 

As a common sense precaution, and because everybody’s skin is different, we recommend that you carry out your own patch test prior to first application. 


What is the shelf life of Ishani Products?  

Our products have a 3 year shelf life from the date of manufacture listed in the bottles.  


How does Ishani support charities? 

Our ultimate aim is to develop a highly successful brand which will help us in our efforts to promote sustainability, animal rights and help with fighting climate change. 

Ishani Botanicals are the proud sponsors of the Animal Rescue League. Some of our profits go to various animal shelters across the country. We also plan to host fundraisers and setup various contests online to help promote animal rights and save rescue animals. Stay tuned! 


Why do some of your beauty products solidify? 

Some of the natural oils like cocoa butter and coconut oil that we use, solidify at room temperature. Many of our competitors add chemicals like phthalates (Read more about the dangers of phthalates below) to liquefy their products, but we are strictly against such practices that would hamper our core mission to give you only natural ingredients. 


What should I do with your product that is solidified? 

Let the product sit under warm tap water for couple of seconds and then shake well before use. 


Is Ishani safe for all skin types? 

Absolutely, we have formulated Ishani for all skin types. However, no matter how carefully Ishani, has been formulated, some consumers may still experience irritation from using certain products. If you do, try using the products less frequently to see if the irritation subsides. If you still continue to experience irritation, discontinue use. We would gladly give you a 100% refund. 


What causes wrinkles? 

The human skin contains a natural substance called collagen that binds the cells together and keeps it youthful and resilient. The body’s natural aging process along with other external factors such as pollution and UV light, results in the production of free radicals. These free radicals cause the breakdown of collagen resulting in wrinkle formation on our skin. 

Antioxidants are the natural way to fight these free radicals. Ishani products contain antioxidants derived from nature that would aid with the battle on your wrinkles. 

Please note that wrinkles are also inevitable from our natural aging process. We are not promising a snake oil that would magically help with vanishing away your wrinkles.  We are merely attesting to the fact that complementing with the use of our organic products requires a consistent exercise regimen, consumption of organic foods and staying positive for a balanced lifestyle. 

I don’t have any wrinkles. Should I still use your face lotions and creams? 

You are never too young or old to use Ishani products. Our products are essential to hydrate, moisturize and nourish your skin. 


What are Parabens? 

A comprehensive study of women with breast cancer published in the January 2012 issue of the Journal of Applied Technology found parabens in 100 percent of all cancerous breast tumors. This evidence clearly links these chemicals to women’s cancers. So what are parabens? 

Parabens are chemical preservatives added to various cosmetic products like shampoos, deodorants and lotions to increase the shelf life. However, parabens are lipholiphic which means that they can easily seep through our skin and accumulate in fatty tissues such as in the breast. Due to their estrogen mimicking properties, parabens are linked to cancer. 

All of our products are paraben-free       


What are Phthalates? 

Phthalates are chemical agents added in cosmetic products to provide flexibility and that soft texture . There are many classes of phthalates. The phthalate that is most frequently used in cosmetics and personal care products is Diethyl Phthalate [DEP]. Phthalates are considered to be endocrine disruptors because of their complex effects on several hormonal systems including the estrogen and androgen hormone systems. 

All of our products are phthalates-free
