Why Choose Khadi Products?

The simple and most concise answer to why you should choose Khadi over other brands and products is to support the Gandhian ideology that was the skeleton of the Swadeshi Movement.

Understanding the meaning of "Swadeshi" in this context is imperative.

In Mahatma Gandhi's words "A country remains poor in wealth, both materially and intellectually, if it does not develop its handicrafts and its industries and lives a lazy parasitic life by importing all the manufactured articles from outside. There was a time when we manufactured almost all we wanted. The process is now reversed, and we are dependent upon the outside world for most manufactured goods.

A very remarkable point was made when he stated that, "A remarkable awakening of the Swadeshi spirit has been seen. It has therefore become necessary to define Swadeshi goods. But in giving a definition care had to be taken not to make the definition so narrow as to make manufacture all but impossible or so wide as to become farcical and Swadeshi only in name.

"We do not want to follow the frog-in-the-well policy, nor in seeming to be international, lose our roots. We cannot be international, if we lose our individuality, i. e., nationality."

Besides the empowering reason of wanting to support village industries, there are a few other reasons why you should choose Khadi for your own benefit:

Natural & Handmade

All Khadi products are made by real people and not machines and are mixed and packaged with love by hand.

Mild & Herbal Formulation

None of Khadi's products, be it their soaps or liquids, contain any harsh chemicals and as such can be used on all types of skin accross all ages safely.

Traditional Ingredients

Sandalwood, turmeric, amla, brahmi, basil, aloe vera, neem, honey to name a few of the main ingredients.

Essential Oils

Potent oils such as eucalyptus, rose, jasmine, jojoba, lavender, vanilla, apricot, vitamin-e are used.

Affordable to All

Khadi pricing is fixed so as to suit all pockets without doing any class discrimination or promotion of inequality.

Fresh Extracts

Fresh extracts from fruits such as cucumber, orange, lime, tulsi, and flowers are used in the intricate hand making.

Ayurveda - Science of Life

Khadi's philosophy is based on the science of Ayurveda and our wide product range caters to most ailments of the body.

Pure Goodness of Gylcerine

All Khadi's soaps are made from unadulterated gylcerine which has a good effect of all types of skin.

Read this interesting article about how Villagers in India are till date keeping the spirit of Swadeshi alive in the form of Khadi.

On an ending note, to quote our Father of the Nation, "Economics that hurt the moral well-being of an individual or a nation are immoral and therefore sinful. Thus the economics that permit one country to prey upon another are immoral. It is sinful to eat American wheat and let my neighbour the grain-dealer starve for want of custom."

So are you and your family ready to make the right choice for your Nation?

    Hi

    I have been using Khadi Products for almost a year now and I really liked them.
    Recently I happened to purchase a shampoo and conditioner from Amazon.
    Unfortunately it happens to be from a company called ‘Gramodaya Khadi’.

    Since the packaging and labels seem to be very similar its hard for the customer to differentiate and judge which product is genuine.

    I would like to know if your products are manufactured by Rockside Research Laboratory or Gramodaya.

    I am still confused as to which is the original companys products and which are fake.

    If you could also suggest a way to judge which is your companys product through a particular lable or mark, it would be great.
