Luxury ubtans are made from pure, finely ground natural herbs, barks, roots, dried leaves and sun dried flowers. These are ground by hand in traditional hand grinders, blended into a base, usually Multani Mitti, and are used as cleansing scrubs or as face packs for deeper exfoliation. Make your own customised packs by adding milk, honey, yoghurt or rosewater to form a smooth and creamy paste. Each ubtan is specially formulated with unique ingredients for specific benefits.
According to Ayurveda, one should make an ubtan in accordance to your dosha or the imbalances in your body which cause skin damage or ruptures. Doshas are the base of Ayurveda medicines and are categorized into Vatta, Pita and Kapha. Ubtans for Vata dosha are meant to moisturise the skin and should be used at normal body temperatures. While Pita Ubtans, are used for cooling effects on the skin so that they extract the heat and other heat-related out of your skin. Lastly, Kapha facial ubtans are beneficial when used with a warm liquid that helps stimulate the natural flow of body fluids.
