On consulting with a doctor, the couple came to know about Agastyas condition; the doctor recommended them to use toxin-free baby care products available in the market for him. Finding it hard to arrange toxin-free products for their son in India, Varun and Ghazal often asked their friends and relatives visiting abroad, to bring some toxin-free products for their son. As the process involved a lot of hassle, Varun and Ghazal came up with an idea to launch their own range of toxin-free products for babies and adults. Varun Alagh and Ghazal Alagh at their workplace.
