Fortifying, stimulating and soothing!
Otherwise known as Maka powder, Bhringraj powder is reputed to be one of the most effective herbs for promoting hair growth.
So you won't be surprised to learn that Bhringraj literally means "hair king" in Sanskrit. It protects the hair while sanitizing the scalp and is ideal especially for dark hair because this powder can darken the color over applications.
Best known for its capillary miracles, it also has precious virtues for the skin. Applied to the skin, it soothes sensitive and irritated skin. It also has anti-aging and repairing properties that are ideal for combating aging of the skin.
Mahakanni (Eclipta prostrata), from which Bhringraj powder is derived, is a plant with broad, flat leaves and white flowers of the Asteraceae family. Its particularity is that some of its components give it coloring properties.
It gives a brown / golden tan to the skin. This plant is, for this reason, used in some self-tanning milks.
