If you’ve been following the second season of the hit Netflix series, Bridgerton, you’ll notice that Episode 6 sees the beautiful Sharma sisters partake in an ancient bridal ritual known as the Haldi Ceremony in preparation for Edwina’s marriage.
Variations of this bridal ritual is practiced across South Asian cultures when preparing brides for their wedding ceremony, in fact, it was this very ritual which was the source of inspiration for our very own award winning Skin Cashmere.
If the golden coloured paste smeared on Edwina’s face and arms seemed familiar – it is because it literally was! We were absolutely delighted when the makeup team from the set of Bridgerton announced that they used soapNskin’s Skin Cashmere during the scene to recreate an authentic Haldi Paste for the Ceremony.
Traditionally turmeric and gram flour are combined with rosewater to create the mustard coloured paste which is then smeared on the bride to-be encouraging a natural, radiant glow ahead of the wedding ceremony.
Skin Cashmere was selected by the Bridgerton makeup team for its authenticity, non skin staining properties and ease of use when filming and recreating the scene and their GLOWING feedback is a testament to our unique formula.
Sure, in theory (and of course back home) you can create your own ‘haldi paste’ at home. But if you’ve ever used turmeric before you’ll know how easily it can stain skin and so a precise formulation is essential – too much turmeric and you’ll look like you’ve been tango’ed and too little will not yield the ‘wow glow’ that you’re after.
The beauty of Skin Cashmere is in its perfected and re-mastered formulation. It’s not only about having a precise turmeric : gram flour ratio, we’ve also including additional skin enhancing ingredients which are traditionally used in skincare.
