Ayurvedic Herbal Cleanser - Vata Rose Clay

Article number: P-18919
Availability: In stock

Ayurveda believes that the human body is a microcosm of the universe (agree) made up of five classical elements: earth, water, fire, air, and ether. Combinations of these elements fall into three main categories called "doshas"-Pitta, kapha, and Vata-and when these doshas fall into imbalance, the body-mind becomes disconnected from its original state of harmony with nature and the universe.

This lightly exfoliating daily cleanser is ideal for Vata-dominant types with dry skin, for anyone living in a dry climate, or for all doshas in the fall and winter seasons. Organic, wildcrafted herbs and clays are rich in antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals vital to skin's daily health and rejuvenation. This herbal formulation maintains skin's natural protective barrier, bringing softness, suppleness and a vital glow to help keep airy Vatas grounded, hydrated, and in balance.

Directions: Mix a small, dime sized amount with water in your palm to form a creamy paste. If you're feeling ritualistic, you can also mix it in a small dish and apply with a facial brush. Apply gently to face in a circular motion, rinsing with warm water. If you're feeling dry, more water can be used and if you need an intensive treatment, less water can be used to form a leave-on mask once a week. Foundry Family Member Erin says this makes her pores disappear. We're sold.

Ingredients: Organic Wildcrafted Colloidal Oatmeal (soothes skin and anchors moisture, creating a protective barrier, giving you softer skin with more elasticity), Organic Wildcrafted Orange Peel Powder (gives skin a healthy dose of skin-brightening vitamins and antioxidants that combat free radicals), Organic Rose Kaolin Clay (unique minerals and phytonutrients eliminate toxins and improve skin's circulation, while also giving skin a silky and supple quality), Organic Raw Honey Powder (attracts dirt and dead skin cells out of the pores, while cleansing and softening the surface of the skin), Organic Yogurt Powder (softens, soothes and rejuvenates dry skin, while brightening skin and refining pores), Organic Ashwagandha (Ayurveda's #1 rejuvenative, anti-stress and anti-aging herb for Vata. It enhances and builds cellular wisdom), Organic Turmeric (the ultimate skin food, cleansing and nourishing while maintaining skin's elasticity and youthful radiance. Turmeric's anti-bacterial properties also combat breakouts).

There is ample scholarship on Ayurveda and the Doshas, but in to help dial in on yours:

Vata: Characterized by the mobile nature of Wind (Air). Dry, light, cold, subtle, mobile, clear. Governs movement and communication. Out of balance, causes fear, anxiety, isolation, loneliness, and exhaustion.

Pitta: Embodies the transformative nature of Fire. Hot, sharp, light, liquid, spreading. Governs digestion and transformation. Out of balance, causes fiery, reactionary emotions such as frustration, anger, jealously, and criticism.

Kapha: Reflects the binding nature of Water. Cool, slow, heavy, smooth, soft, stable. Governs cohesiveness + structure. Out of balance, causes emotions of attachment, greed, and possessiveness and can also create stubbornness, lethargy, and resistance to change.
