Amity Noida scientists develop “herbal colours” to boost PM Modi’s “Make In India”


Amity (Noida) scientists have come out in support of PM Modi’s ambitious “Make In India”. According t reports, the scientists have developed 100 percent pure, safe and indigenous herbal colours with absolutely no synthetic or harmful additives.

The herbal colours developed by the team of scientists could be used in various industries such as cosmetics, toys, paints, pharmaceuticals, food and other items.

“The herbal colours indigenously developed at Amity, when used extensively in all the industries, will herald a revolution in the country, which is reeling under the pressure of products loaded with synthetic components and chemicals,” said Harsha Kharkwal, faculty at Amity University.

Reports also suggest that the technology has been transferred to a Jaipur-based company, Shubh Laxmi Industries, for use of herbal colours in manufacturing of gulal (red colour) used during the festival of Holi.
