JAIPUR, INDIA, August 2, 2001: In England's 2,500 beauty parlors, Indian traditional cosmetics are frequently used. According to information received from World Communication Centre in Jaipur, in these beauty parlors cream, shampoos and other synthetic materials are out of favor. In the place of these, turmeric, honey, lemon, etc. are being used. India shampoos such as amvla, reetha and shikakai are favored. Similarly, for head and body massage, traditional Indian pastes are employed. Prime Minister Tony Blair's wife, Cherry, has visited the beauty parlor of Bharti Vyas. Other traditional Indian beauty parlors have a booking schedule of two and a half months.
