With Holi being around the corner there is a surge of excitement and happiness among kids and adults alike who are patiently waiting for the day. This unique festival of colours unlike any other is celebrated across India with revelers throwing colours to celebrate the victory of good over evil. The date of Holi keeps changing every year as it is celebrated on a full moon day in the month of Phagun of Hindu calendar, this day marks the beginning of spring. For the immediate days preceding Holi splurging and throwing of colours is a common site. While this vibrant festival colours people from all caste, creed and religion creating a feel of uniqueness, there are people who might avoid the festival for the fear of skin disorders resulting from the artificial colours used during Holi.
Copper sulphate, lead oxide, aluminum bromide and mercury sulphite are some of the many harmful chemicals that are found in the synthetic colours commonly sold in the market during Holi. The harmful effects of these colours could lead to acute nail fold inflammation, abrasion, aggravation of pre-existing dermatoses, discoloration, contact dermatitis and many more. Natural colours in contrast assures that you have nothing to worry about except being drenched in colours. In fact Organic Gulal also gives you the liberty to pick out your desired outfit from your ethnic wardrobe for the Holi Parties without fearing to spoil them.

The tribals also bring grains and mango spring flower to signify new life.
