Hi! We are Brunda Sreedhar and Ambica Gayathri, the founders of Scentora.
We started Scentora to actively practice our values of zero-waste while buying and using personal care products. It began with us sharing our ideas and recipes on how to make homemade products that are non-toxic and long-lasting.
And from there, our vision and values have grown to include making products that are eco-friendly, plastic-free and that which reduces our everyday waste.
Hi, I'm Brunda.
I live in Bangalore and I work as a developer. I love gardening, cooking, reading, travelling, reading books, overdosing on coffee and Virgil Van Dijk.
I decided to quit single use plastic after watching a documentary called 'A Plastic Ocean' by Craig Leeson. I have learnt a lot about going zero-waste from Trash Is For Tossers and more.
I'm very very grateful for all the love and support that Scentora has received so far. Working on it has not only made me learn about sustainability and the environment, but I've also met so many like-minded people who motivate me to be better every single day.
Hello, my name is Ambica.
I am a music producer, freelance writer and poet. I used to work in the IT industry as a developer but quit to pursue music production.
I manage the daily organizational work at Scentora, make the products, help with content-writing on the website and social media as well as crack the on-ground sales.
Zero-waste has always existed in my family through my mother, although we never knew its name. My mother instilled these values in me sub-consciously by insisting on little things like conserving water, using scraps for art and reusing bottles of all kinds for storage. This extended to going natural for skin and hair care. My mother's traditional skin care recipes always had a greater impact on me than other chemical-laden products.
Using all this combined knowledge from both families, Brunda and I decided to begin Scentora and journey together. And I thank you all from the bottom of my heart for helping us through our humble beginnings and sticking with us. I am forever grateful for all your support.
