This weeks MITD's local business pick is Kumari Luxury.
Kumari Luxury is a DC based organic cosmetic brand. Kumari Luxury offers a variety of products; from hair oil, body oil, to bath soaks and more. Made with all pure, organic, and natural ingredients Kumari Luxury offers more than great products; providing a return to a peaceful place their products allow for an experience for the mind as well as for the body.
The founder, Aarti Gala, drew inspiration from cherished childhood memories of her mother massaging Ayurvedic hair oils in her hair before bed; Aarti wanted to capture the same sort of ritual experience of relaxation and silence in her products.
Kumari Luxury is dedicated to sustainability, sourcing high-quality, natural, and organic products protecting the buyer and the environment. The company also invests in environmental projects around the world, and packages their goods in refillable, recyclable containers, and has their labels made with at least 30% recycled content.
Kumari Luxury can be found locally at Follain Union Market, Native Beauty, or the Emerald Door. You can purchase their products online at their website or online through Aurora Beauty, Carbon Beauty, Kindred Black, and Rodale's.
