At Abhati, our highly concentrated botanicals contain active ingredients in our proprietary Abhati Complex™ that soften, hydrate, replenish, and repair hair and skin back to their natural glory. Our products are plant powered with clinically proven ingredients.
One super ingredient found in our haircare products is something you may not be familiar with but should get to know. It's a holy grail ingredient that lends its nourishing superpower to our haircare products: Saccharide isomerate, a maize-derived moisturising factor that keeps hair nourished for up to 72-hours. It provides deep hydration, rebalances microbial activity in your scalp and stimulates the epidermal barrier to reinforce and encourage healthy growth.
At Abhati, we embrace the Indian notion that “healthy hair is rooted in the scalp” while combining two worlds in our formulas: Swiss technology and Indian ritual. You can trust countless generations of Indian women, or you can trust the science that backs it up. With Abhati, we offer you both. By changing your hair care routine to include our gentle shampoos and conditioners, as well as adding a few drops of Chambal Sacred Hair Oil while massaging your scalp (or, an oil Champi as its known in India), you will soon notice a difference in your hair’s elasticity and shine, all thanks to these high potency ingredients.
One question we receive a lot is people asking how they can extend the life of their solid products. Bar shampoos and conditioners are a fantastic zero-waste alternative for beauty enthusiasts looking to lower their packaging footprints, so it’s natural that fans want to make the most of their bars. And thinking about this question sparked one of our most recent and exciting product developments: The Pebble.
In my last note, I talked about how my Indian heritage shaped sustainability for me and how I incorporate that into Abhati. Now I’d like to take a moment to think about how my Indian culture motivates the other great passion of mine: natural beauty.
When I was growing up, my granny—my Naniji—would pull out all sorts of oils and plants and powders to massage and rub into my hair and face. She never bought us any products to specifically address an issue like acne or dry hair, but would instead make it all in her kitchen. Besan (gram flour), yogurt, turmeric, cold pressed oils, exotic (for the U...
I’ve been thinking a lot lately about what India can teach us about sustainability. That might sound crazy if you’ve seen photos from India of polluted waterways, mountains of trash, and piles of textile waste and chemical runoff from clothing manufacturers. But all of that stems from fast fashion and a corporate disregard for the environment. Indian culture, however, has always practiced inherent sustainability long before it became all the rage in the west.
In a clinical study, hair treated with the Abhati Complex™ showed a 92% reduction in breakage compared to untreated hair. Because at Abhati, we treat your hair’s health at the root.
This may surprise you, but your scalp ages six times faster than your face, and becomes less efficient at delivering the nutrients your hair needs to thrive. So, the best way to prevent hair damage and loss is by caring for your scalp.
One of the ingredients we use in order to do that is niacin, which delivers oxygen and nutrients to the hair follicle. It’s why it’s vital for healthy hair. By improving the blood c...
Abhati Eau de Parfum is a genderless fragrance crafted by legendary perfumer Geza Schoen. It is made from the rarest botanical oils; a voyage spanning two continents, at the juncture of Indian exoticism and Swiss freshness.
This scent is complex, rebellious, and sexy, made from pure essences of warm wood, amber, coriander, guaiac wood, pink pepper, jasmine, vetiver, and dusky sandalwood.
Abhati’s founder Anju Rupal describes the scent this way:
“The essences we worked with are rich and crisp, designed to soothe and captivate. To me they evoke the memory of a meander in a Delhi market at dusk, ...

Tamarind seed extract is skincare’s newest and most potent ingredient for hydrating skin. In recent studies, it has been proven to outperform the well known and lightweight moisturiser Hyaluronic Acid, which is why tamarind has quickly become our favourite ingredient for weightless hydration in haircare.
