Better Botanicals Frequently Asked Questions

How do you choose which herbs to use?
The herbs are chosen because they have a long history of successful use in skin and hair care: Better Botanicals' products are based on "Ayurveda." It is the world’s oldest and most widely practiced school of herbal medicine, originating in India 5,000 years ago. Most of their products are manufactured under Ayurvedic license (distinct from a cosmetic license). Ayurveda determines the herbal blends and the herbs determine product aesthetics.

Ayurveda determines the herbs, the herbs determine both efficacy and aesthetics. Efficacy is the primary reason they use the herbs they do.

Many of the herbs are so specific to their Indian origin, they don’t even have English names. Pick up the hair oil and read the 8 herbs from Bhringraj to Jataamansi. Bhringraj is a great example - this is a Sanskrit word. The Hindi word is "Keshraja", which literally translated means "ruler of the hair." This herb has been used for so long as a hair tonic that its very name reflects its use!

Are Better Botanicals Products 100% Natural?
Although some of their products are, Better Botanicals has never claimed to be 100% natural. Most of their products are between 98 and 99.5% natural.

Better Botanical products are so natural that color variations might be seen from batch to batch. This is especially true of the more colorful products, such as the Rose-Tulsi Toner (note: it is the Kamala which makes it red, not rosewater, which is not red). The changes in color reflect the season in which the herbs were grown, how much sunlight and water the herbs received, etc. The change in color is one of the signs of a truly natural product.

There are, however, 2 ways to alter this:

  • Use a chemical color to make it uniform from batch to batch, which they cannot do under the Ayurvedic license, nor would they want to
  • Put the product in an opaque bottle so you can’t see it, which is against their philosophy of openness

Color variations are often considered a "badge of honor" when considering a natural product!

What makes your products effective?
The difference is that Better Botanicals uses the herbs in their natural form. For example, one Amla fruit, about as big as a walnut, has as much Vitamin C as 26 oranges. Therefore, they use Amla extract, instead of synthesized Vitamin C, in their Amla Shine Shampoo. The US government initiated the planting of Amla plantations in Florida during WWII as a source of Vitamin C in case it became scarce during the war.

Better Botanicals believe that things are more effective when used in their natural form for 2 key reasons:

  1. Synthesized ingredients tend to break down and lose efficacy more easily (they are less stable because they are simpler compounds)
  2. In their natural form, elements work together in a more complex fashion to achieve greater efficacy (like the example of meadowsweet, which yields the chemical formula for aspirin, but works with other natural compounds to provide buffering agents for the stomach)

What is the difference between Better Botanicals and other product lines?
The products are HERBAL. Many product lines claim to be herbal, however, here is the Better Botanicals difference: For an herbal product to have any functional value, a very high herbal content is needed. Their herbal content ranges from 15% (shampoo) to 100% (steams). Their moisturizers have a 30 - 35% herbal content. Other products out there add an herbal “image ingredient” (1 or 2%) and then make an alpha-hydroxy the active ingredient.

With Better Botanicals, the herbs are the active ingredients and are selected based on efficacy. Better Botanicals does not add anything for fragrance or color. The herbs that are selected by BB and Ayurvedic physicians determine the fragrance and color.

By Emily (Westlake , OH )

I don't know if I got an old batch, but honestly, mine smelled like old person lotion. It's the smell I associate with the elderly people in my life. The smell completely turned me off, although I absolutely love the facial cleanser I got by them. I had to add essential oils to the lotion to make it smell better.
