Ingredient : Reetha
What is Reetha?
One of the most popular plant-based products in traditional Indian hair care rituals over centuries, Reetha is also known as the Indian Soapberry. This is, however, a misnomer in that the part of the fruit that’s used for hair care is not the seed or nut of the tree. Instead, it is the pericarp, or the part covering the seeds. Native to most of East Asia, Reetha is believed to have incredible benefits for your hair.
