Our Story

Our Journey

My name is Pallavi Gupta and I have my grandmother to thank for my passion. Throughout my childhood, my grandmother regularly bathed and scrubbed me with edible goods from our kitchen. My grandmother made it a point to not let my mother use any market products - rightly believing that those are made with harmful chemicals, which may have an attractive aroma but will only cause long lasting side effects. 

Dadi herself used only ubtans and batanas, and she shone like the sun! My fondest memory of her from my childhood is of her mixing malai and aatta in a steel katori everyday before her bath, and she’d let me rub it on her neck sitting on the bathroom sink :)

During my teenage years, and now even in my thirties, I receive the most gorgeous compliments for my skin texture and the youth that radiates due to minimal exposure to industry based bath and body products. I too absolutely believe that what cannot be put inside your body should not be put on the skin as well.

When the world came to a standstill during the pandemic, many of us found our footing in our passions. 

 

After losing my Dadi to Covid, broken and humbled, confined to the boundaries of my home, a sudden epiphany struck… and through her recipes, I resolved to honour her memories eternally. 

From a very young age I had a knack for prepping these mixtures, I would prepare jars and gift them to friends and family on special occasions. Talking to my close friends came as a revelation. It gave me the confidence to pursue my dream of making these available to a wider set of people! Especially, those who are passionate about pursuing a greener, all-natural lifestyle.

 

I completed a course in Herbal Cosmetology from the reputed National Institute of Cosmetics of India to gain expertise and credibility, which led me to deriving my own special blends. 

My college nickname Quack (because, to my friends I looked and talked like a duck) and my love for wordplay, led me to call my brand Dr. Quack’s Antidotes. Quirky, isn’t it?! From the corner of a small table at an artisanal market, I sold my first product, and well as they, the rest is HISTORY!
