For Diipa, indē wild was never a matter of if and rather when.
Born and raised in India, growing up around ancient Ayurvedic remedies for the mind, body and soul were the norm. Plus, her mother (lovingly known by Diipa’s followers and community as Momi) was and is a practicing Ayurvedic doctor and dermatologist, and so science and tradition co-existed as part of daily life, self care and healing in the Khosla family.
Fast forward to her teenage years, Diipa, like so many, struggled with significant acne for over a decade -- well into her twenties. For years, she felt the need to cover up and hide her blemishes to fit societal beauty norms, feeling immensely self conscious about her skin and beyond that, what made her visibly different from her peers.
indē wild represents a journey to self love, celebrating unique needs, culture and modern science -- all in beautiful sympatico.
