Organic Holi may sounds like a brand new concept to celebrate the event, but this is a good old concept which comes with colours that are safe and doesn’t harm human body.
Historically, Holi is a festival that is meant to celebrate the arrival of spring while the colours used reflect the various shades of spring season. Call it a consequence of modern generation that artificial colours have pulled the beauty out from celebrations. It’s everyone’s duty to de-pollute the festival and make it in sync with nature.
To diminish the harsh effect, celebration with organic colours - which are mostly food grade ingredients (usually vegetable & leaf extracts) – has become a trend of the season. There are many certified brands which offer such colours to keep the celebrations in traditional way.
This is important to note that many profit making brands sell fake colours with an organic branding. To avoid such falters there look for the verified product which comes with a certified mark on the label.
One of the known companies that sells organic colours is Organica.
