A women-based social enterprise in the Himalayas


Jujurana Eco-Creations

Under Jujurana Eco-Creations, we produce a range of 100% natural cosmetics like sunscreen, lip balms and handmade soaps as well as knitted apparels for sale to tourists.

Unfortunately, due to the pandemic, the micro-enterprise was forced to halt production. We want to provide the marginalized women of Tirthan Valley with education and the creative skills training needed to become professional and talented designers, seamstresses, embroiderers, weavers, and jewelry designers of the handicraft industry. Through our program, women would gain the creative skills and financial independence by creating sustainable fashion that is life affirming and supports a healthy environment.

The range of products that these women offer with their fine craftsmanship includes soaps, oils, woolen socks and other knitted items. HET plans on reviving this micro-enterprise and beginning production of these products once again by training more women and providing the materials required. With a sustained presence and a lively business, opportunities for growth and expansion within the valley can be explored.

Empowering women

We, at Himalayan Ecotourism and Himalayan Insight, believe that uplifting local women is an integral part of our sustainable development goals for the future.

Presently, we are closely working with one Self-Help Group (SHG), namely the SHG in Pekhri to produce a range of organic and 100% vegan cosmetic products.
We are determined to revive Jujurana Eco-Creations with the Pekhri SHG and begin expansion of production through involvement of more SHGs as the business grows.

Natural cosmetics

Apricot oil

The kernels are collected in the winter months from local villages of our pristine Tirthan Valley. We extract the oil at a water-run mill and use it to make soaps, sunscreen balm, lip balm and pure apricot kernel oil enriched with Himalayan herbs. Our products are apricot kernel oil based which are great for direct use on your skin and hair.

Handmade cold processed soaps

Our hand-made soaps are made with a blend of essential oils and Kaolin clay and natural oils that are locally sourced. Mixed with natural colours, our 100% vegan soaps are beautiful, organic and a fantastic way to empower local communities.

Sunscreen balms

With many trials and experimentation, we’ve formulated a sunscreen lip-balm that puts all the other mainstream ones to shame. Completely organic and vegan, this is a product you can trust to protect your skin, equipped with SPF 10.

If you visit a local village in Himachal Pradesh, chances are that you’ll spot many women at work: grazing their livestock, collecting forest products and carrying loads on their back for use at home.

If their hands are free, they are usually knitting. Intricate designs by creative women encouraged us to up-scale these operations. We are currently designing sock and sweater designs for sale across India to ensure women can gain a sense of financial independence and attribute a sense of value to their incredible skills.
