They are double-pinnate, with 5-7 pairs of pinnae, and the primary rachis is thorny and velvety. Each pinna has 12-18 pairs of leaflets. They are oblong-lance shaped, 3-10 mm in length, pointed, and obliquely rounded at the base.

The diameter of the plant's flower-heads is about 1 cm when they are mature. The flowers are pink in color, and they may be without or with reduced subtending bracts. The fruit pods are thick— somewhat flattened and stalked. They are 8 cm in length and 1.5-1.8 cm in width, and the primary ingredient in Shikakai Powder.

Additionally, its composition promotes healthy skin, too as topical use of this herb encourages a glowing and a natural complexion.It contains ingredients sourced and processed under the best conditions. Our expert practitioners (Ayurvedic Vaidyas classically trained in India) have selected only ethically wildcrafted or certified organic sources for Shikakai Powder. Additionally, our organically grown Shikakai comes from native farms. That way, we ensure that the farmers do not use pesticides or toxic chemicals during the harvest or processing.

Shikakai needs a hot and dry climate to reach optimal maturity. Hence we have selected the Central Plateau of Southern regions of India for its cultivation. We harvest it between August and October to ensure that it grows well. The astringent quality of its pods is essential for supporting healthy hair growth and nourishment. After being harvested, we ensure that pods are kept in air-tight containers so that they don't absorb any moisture. It helps us to retain its freshness and potency before they are powdered or supplied to the consumer.

We also source fresh ingredients, cultivated in the ideal topographical environment. Such careful sourcing increases the quality of the ingredients and the effectiveness of the supplementation.

While we source ingredients in India, we process the product in the USA. That way, we can guarantee that you have access to whole foods and traditional products. Moreover, our herbal supplements go through multiple quality assurance checks before they reach your doorstep. We offer only the best for your health and wellbeing.
