What is Holi Powder?

Holi powder, also known as color powder, is a vibrant and colorful substance used during the Hindu Festival of Colors, also known as Holi. This traditional Indian festival celebrates the arrival of spring and the victory of good over evil. During Holi celebrations, people joyfully throw colored powders at each other, creating a mesmerizing kaleidoscope of colors.

Each hue holds symbolic significance:

  • Red represents love, fertility, and marriage
  • Blue is the color of Krishna and represents power over evil
  • Green symbolizes Vishnu, new beginnings, and growth
  • Yellow is the color of turmeric, a spice that's native to India and important in both South Asian cuisine and culture
  • Pink is often associated with happiness and love

How is Holi Powder Made?

Holi powder can be made from a variety of materials, including flour, talc, arrowroot, kaolin clay, or baking soda. However, our Holi powder is crafted with environmentally friendly materials such as corn starch or rice powder--dyed using non-toxic, food-grade coloring. This ensures that our products are safe and gentle on the environment.

To release the Holi powder, grip the 2x16" canister with one hand and twist with the other to shoot color powder up to 20 feet in the air, adding excitement to the festivities. Best of all, our biodegradable powder washes away effortlessly, leaving no lasting impact on the environment.

Does Holi Powder Stain?

One common concern about Holi powder is whether it stains clothing or skin. While the vibrant colors may leave temporary residue, especially on light-colored fabrics, our Holi powder is easily washable. Simply rinse with warm water or launder clothing as usual to remove any traces of color.
