Reading time 7 Minutes

Beauty Hooked is considered one of pioneers in the trying and testing of products because of the carefully thought of method of approval, which are based on tests that are performed to check the quality of the product, under the supervision of qualified reviewers. So, when we received the product package we received from Botanical wonders, we decided not to leave any stones unturned, and put their claim of being 100 percent natural and organic to test. So stay hooked to find out if their products are Beauty Hooked Approved or Not.

PACKAGING

PROS

The packaging of the products is up to the mark and the international standards for packaging of organic beauty products is completely followed. For example, the organic oils like coconut, almond, castor, mustard all are packed in waterproof and airtight containers. Since these oils are carrier oils, they don’t need to be protected from light if they are used within 6 months of manufacturing date because they are packed in transparent containers. The bottles are made of plastic which is durable as verified by our experts. The scrubs and masks are packed in plastic containers with airtight lids and caps, which is a plus point and prevents moisture from seeping in to the containers. 

CONS

The plastic bottle, especially for the oils, may release chemicals which may get infused with oils if placed for a longer time in direct sun light and or a warm place. The storage specs are not mentioned on the labels because oils are packed in transparent bottles, so if they are not stored in a cool place, these oils may become rancid. The manufacturing date and batch numbers are also missing on the labels which should be written to check the shelf life. And the shelf life is not mentioned on the scrubs and masks.  

Package Rating: 7/10

PRODUCT RANGE

PROS

The Botanicals Wonders products ranges from Oils, Scrubs, Masks, Rose Water, Aloe Vera Gel, Soaps, and Lip Balms. They have special flour for healthy eating and a wide variety of tea’s to target different beauty concerns along with weight loss.

CONS

Usually, if you are using an organic product, it should be paired with a beauty care regime completely of organic nature too for the desired effect and to minimize the harshness of inorganic products. For example, if someone is using organic hair oil but simultaneously uses shampoo & conditioner with chemicals, the desired effect would not be achieved. So there should be organic shampoo and conditioner too to give a complete hair care regimen. The same is true for Skincare regimen. 

Product Range Rating: 6/10

BEAUTY HOOKED CERTIFIED TESTS FOR OIL

PURITY TEST

We put the oil in an airtight container in the refrigerator for 24 hrs. It solidifies indicating its purity is up to the mark.

RING TEST

We squeezed a drop of oil on white paper and let it air dry. The drop started to spread out making a solid circle fading outwards to the ends (instead of a ring which is formed by a hollow space in the middle indicating impurity). This proves that the oil is pure. 

CLARITY TEST

We squeezed a drop of oil on white paper to check its clarity. It had  no cloudiness nor any residue left on the white paper, thus passing the clarity test. It means it is prepared with the standard method of oil production.

ENVIRONMENT STABILITY

We put oil in an open bowl in open area where it was exposed to oxygen and heat and sunlight. The oil becomes darkened indicating that it is organic. 

AROMA

The aroma of the oils is not so strong that it may catch the stuffy nose. and not so light that it does not appeal to the user when it is used.

TEXTURE

The texture of the oil is non-greasy which is a good thing because non-greasy oils have more absorption.

VISCOSITY

The oils were not so vicious, and lightweight in consistency making it more prone to deep penetration. as heavyweight oils do not penetrate into the skin as good as lightweight do. 

PROS

CONS

  • Wrong information on Almonds Oil. Almond oil does not contain Vitamin A as mentioned on label
