Khadi Natural Products Review: Best and Worsts

Are Khadi Natural Products Good? Are the products really chemical-free and natural? If these thoughts have been on your mind, then this post is for you.

Since the day I became conscious of choosing natural ayurvedic products for my skincare, I started having my eyes on Khadi Natural since it is not only said to be a natural brand but also an affordable brand. After checking out a few reviews, I had a little hesitation as I noticed they mention only the key ingredients on the label. Then this super budget-friendly travel kit caught my attention and without any second thoughts, I bought it. This kit contains 6 Khadi Natural Products, all of which are deluxe sized which is more than enough to decide if I want to get the full size. Let’s see how these products fared for me.

Over the years, Khadi Natural has reformulated and revamped its products. Khadi Natural was not a Paraben brand but now you can notice an increase in Paraben & Sulphate Free Products in their range. In fact, Khadi Natural has a set of products that are Sulphate and Paraben Free and a different set of products that aren’t free of them. You can easily find them mentioned on the packaging.

Khadi Natural Products Review

1. Khadi Natural Amla & Bhringraj Shampoo Review

Khadi Natural Amla & Bhringraj Hair Cleanser

Of all Khadi Natural Products, this is the one product that I wanted to try out desperately. Amla and Bhringraj in a shampoo. I’m in. Both are excellent ingredients for every hair problem.

Before I talk about how this works, this shampoo smells yum; it has a sweet smell that is unexplainable but can be overpowering for those with sensitive noses. The shampoo is black in color and has a slightly running consistency. Since I have the one that contains SLS, it lathered up really well. It does the perfect job of shampoo, to clean the scalp. I usually never expect other properties like hair fall control, or hair growth from shampoo so I don’t really bother about those aspects.

I really liked using the shampoo, especially after a DIY hair mask. For some (who shampoo on dry hair without oiling or pre-conditioning) this can be slightly drying as it strips off oil completely. If there is an SLS and Paraben version of this shampoo, I would have recommended that. But if you are comfortable with sulfates, then this is a good shampoo to try. It does not induce hair fall and serves its purpose of cleansing the scalp of dirt thoroughly.

(Update 2023: Yes, they do have an SLS & Paraben Free version now).

2. Khadi Natural Green Tea & Aloe vera Conditioner Review

Khadi Natural Green Tea & Aloevera Conditioner

This is a pretty decent conditioner. The shampoo comes in a unique pastel green color and has the most common thick creamy conditioner consistency. It has a strong herbal fragrance that is more of Reetha and a mix of other herbs. It lingers on my hair until the next day. Performance-wise, the product definitely conditions my hair but it doesn’t have the slip to detangle my hair easily, which I assume is because of the lack of silicones. Once my hair dries after shampooing and conditioning, my hair looks well-defined, smooth, and soft to the touch. Since this is a mild one, it did not weigh down my hair either. Overall, if you like mild conditioners, you can try The Khadi Aloe Vera Conditioner once.

3. Khadi Natural Herbal Face Wash Review

Khadi Natural Herbal Face Wash

This face wash reminds me of my Patanjali Neem and Tulsi Face Wash. As you can see, this is a yellow-colored gel-based face wash. The product has a fruity smell that completely fades away once you wash it off. The face wash foams up well which leads to a super nice cleaning effect. This face wash can feel a bit stretchy on the skin, especially with normal and dry skin types. It is more suitable for oily and combination skin types. It’s not an extraordinary face wash, but it suited well on my skin and didn’t cause me any breakouts. So I am pretty satisfied using this. You could also explore other best face washes for oily skin.

4. Khadi Natural Rose & Honey Moisturizer Review

Khadi Natural Rose & Honey Moisturizer

Most moisturizers cause acne on my oily acne-prone skin. In fact, when I saw this kit had one, I was sure that I would be using it for my body. And I was right. This was a super thick creamy moisturizer that would never suit my oily facial skin. But again this was perfect for my dry body skin, especially for the winter season. This again has a fruity fragrance which disappears sometime after application. The moisturizer gets absorbed easily into the skin and is super moisturizing and hydrating. I love how this makes my skin soft and supple for long hours without re-application. I highly recommend this for all those dry-skin beauties.

5. Khadi Natural Aloe Vera Soap Review

Khadi Natural Aloevera Soap

The Khadi Natural Aloe vera soap is a translucent glycerine-based soap just like pears. The soap comes in a plastic-wrapped cover packaging with all the details at the backside of the soap packaging. This is supposedly a handmade soap made with Aloe vera, Neem, Lemon, Manjistha, Tulsi, Ratan Joth, and Vegetable Oil Bar Base. This soap has a very good herbal fragrance which lasts for a little while after a bath. The soap does lather well but doesn’t dry out or make the skin stretchy. Rather, it gives a smooth slippery feel of using a rich moisturizing soap. Overall, I liked using it, this was a good handmade soap with a very good fragrance.

6. Khadi Natural Rose Water Soap Review

Khadi Natural Rosewater Soap

The Khadi Natural Rosewater Soap is similar to the Aloe vera soap in its texture and performance. Only the fragrance differed. This Soap is made of Rosewater, Rose Oil, Glycerine, Geranium Oil, Chandan Oil, and Bar Base (Vegetable Oil). This soap has the smell of roses, absolutely very pleasing to my senses. Just like Aloe Vera soap, this lathers well and gives a very smooth skin at the end of the bath, but that doesn’t mean one can skip a moisturizer. This variant doesn’t impart that slippery and great moisturizing feel. This soap claims to impart mild antiseptic properties while keeping skin smooth and velvety and as claimed it leaves the skin soft.

7. Khadi Natural Neem Tulsi Face Pack Review

Khadi Natural Neem Tulsi Face Pack

This was not a part of the travel kit and I had bought it separately as I wanted a dry powder face pack. Khadi Natural has a variety of such face packs. I chose this Neem and Tulsi as it would make a good combination for my oily acne-prone skin. The powder pack comes in a small zip pouch placed inside a small steel container. The powder is finely milled and mixes easily with water. It has an amazing herbal smell that is not long-lasting. I use this face pack on clean, damp skin. It spreads easily and immediately has a tingling sensation which disappears in a few minutes. Before it completely dries, I massage the slightly wet pack giving a scrubbing effect. It washes off easily too. The results are quite satisfying. It feels refreshing and makes my face look brighter and glowing instantly. This Neem Tulsi Face Pack is worth giving a try.

Are Khadi Natural Products Good?

Overall, I wasn’t floored with their products but at the same time wasn’t disappointed either. They are good in performance and for this price, I wouldn’t ask for more. The only major concern is the incomplete ingredient list which they should be transparent about in order to gain the trust of consumers. Summarizing the Pros and Cons.

Pros:

  • Khadi Natural Products are super affordable.
  • Available in smaller kits which helps to zero in on the product that would work for one.
  • They have separate SLS and non-SLS versions of most of their products, especially shampoos.
  • The products are effective and are able to provide the claimed results to a great extent.

Cons:

  • All Khadi Natural Products are strongly scented which is bothering at times.
  • Poor packaging. All the bottle products, be it travel size or full size, come with a stopper that has to be removed leading to a bigger hole and a chance of getting more product out.
  • The complete ingredient list is not mentioned.
  • The products do not give a natural product vibe, with all sorts of fragrances and colors.

Overall it’s a herbal brand that natural skincare lovers can give a try. Do share your experience with Khadi Natural Products in the comments section below. Don’t forget to check out similar brand reviews in this series.

  1. Khadi products have never worked for me. Their shampoos make my hair super dry and cause hairfall. And their soaps were drying too. And the face packs I felt were not pure and contains mainly multani mitti only and the main ingredients of neem, tulsi, etc are present in very less proportions. But as you said, for someone looking for affordable products, its worth a try at this price range….
