By  Supriya Talupuru

After enjoying 5000 years of popularity in the East, Ayurveda is becoming a big beauty trend in the West.  A system of natural healing that originated in India, Ayurveda is designed to balance the body through the correct diet, exercise and skincare, based on your constitutional type, or ‘dosha’. Don’t know your dosha? Find out here whether you’re vata, pitta, or kapha–or a combination of more than one.

But Ayurveda is more than approach to health – the English translation of this Sanskrit word is the “Science of Life” or “Knowledge of Life”. Ayurvedic beliefs hold that every part of a plant is of sacred medicinal value. The basic ideology is the while nature has the solution, your body has the answer.

Here’s a bit about the way the system works: every part of a plant has immense potential as a medicine. If a plant can be of such great value, imagine the true potential of our body. Like any machine, every aspect of our being comes together to achieve a higher good, but it is important that all the ingredients are 100% natural; a truly Ayurvedic beauty brand will not use synthetic chemicals of any kind.

When it comes to Ayurvedic beauty brands for  treating skin or hair, all elements of Ayurveda  come together to bring forth a unique experience.  Part of what makes Ayurvedic beauty products so wonderfully natural  is that all of the ingredients  have to actually be edible — this is truly an ‘inside out’ approach to beauty, and manufacturers will tell you their products are literally alive, thriving with cosmic energy.  Another important element of Ayurveda is balancing  your dosha, so it’s important to learn which you are.

Increasing numbers of beauty brands are using Ayurvedic beauty principles, but they’re still a bit hard to find. Luckily, we’ve searched the web – and the world! – to bring you some of the best.

1.  Kama Ayurveda

Launched  in 2002, this company represents top of the line luxurious Ayurvedic care. I’ve seen it move from fancy shops to become a more ubiquitous brand. They have a killer package that involves a complete care pack for three months prior to a wedding. This special package, which is a great shower gift, by the way, consists of Bringadi Intensive Hair Treatment, Kumkumadi Brightening Ayurvedic Scrub, and the Nalpamaradi Tailam Skin Brightening Treatment.The pack uses the power of 12 herbs to bring vibrancy to the skin and the powerful Nalpamaradi treatment has a similar effect on the entire body.

2.  Om Veda

This Aussie company focuses on the original formulas as described in traditional Ayurvedic texts for many of their products. Here, old school recipes  meet gorgeous package design to create products that look great in the bathroom and feel great on your skin. For example, the  OmVeda Mahanarayana Tailam massage oil is made of 58 herbs – not only does it smooth the skin, but it also eases  joint pain. Traditionally, this oil is also used as part of an effective anti-aging ritual.

3.  Subtle Energies

I love  this brand for their part in combining two dynamic sciences: Ayurveda and Aromatherapy. Look good, smell good and ergo, feel good. Their collections include only the finest, richest, rarest of oils, which counter itchy, dry skin and fight stretch marks. Their lush woody and headily floral fragrances are completely based on natural oils, and are an added pleasure to your daily beauty rituals. Our editor says she’s obsessed with their Mogra and Rose Gold Moisturiser, which she said calmed the redness in her skin right down…and also smells divine!

4.  Arya Essentials

A team of Indian  doctors helped to  formulate Arya Essentials’ range of oils and creams. All products are strictly in line with the principles of  Ayurveda, nourishing your skin with pure, high-quality ingredients from nature. Ingredients include herbs like  ashwagandha and manjistha to reduce under eye circles and puffiness, while brahmi minimizes the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Their best seller, a Botanical Cleanser, uses the anti-inflammatory powers of turmeric to help calm red complexions.

5.  Pratima

Pratima has generated rave reviews for their sun care products. One of the biggest  winners from this line is actually the humble remedial Neem Healing Oil. Neem is fantastic for sensitive skin and skin that’s growing intolerant because of pollution (personal experience shout out!). This oil infuses neem with other caring ingredients like lavender, sandalwood, and basil. You can use it for multiple things like treating a prickly heat problem and soothing inflammation of the skin. One bottle has multiple uses – but there are plenty of other great products in this Ayurvedic beauty range to try!

6.  Sundara Holistic

Sundara was designed to heal the body and mind, and has a strongly spiritual element: in fact, the owner even creates all her products in small batches, by hand, and chants  ancient Vedic mantras while doing so. The products are gentle, and contain Ayurvedic herbs that can help hair growth, rosacea, eczema and psoriasis.

7.  Kailash Jeevan

Outside India, this nifty cream is still something of a secret, which is unfortunate because of how many ailments it can treat. I’ve used it as a cream to recover from mad sunburns to clearing up a building UTI to calming my skin down and healing cracked feet. This Ayurvedic preparation is very economical for all the amazing benefits it contains. Also, the best lip cream I’ve ever used. I know an ex-smoker who used Kailash Jeevan to revive his skin back to a  healthy pink again.  I heart KJ!

8.  Rasasara Skinfood

After traditional beauty products ruined  her skin, Sonia Lloyd was inspired to start her own Ayurvedic beauty brand to help heal her complexion. (needless to say, her epidural woes have since subsided). Today, her line is comprised of a variety of products for both the skin and hair. The natural  ingredients include  rose  water, green clay, neem oil, jasmine essential oil and more.

9.  Jiva Apoha

Jiva Apoha was inspired by India but born in New York. The brainchild of Brooklynite Angela Shore, the range consists  solely of Ayurvedic quality oil blends for both face and body. Answer their online questionnaire and you can get your own personalised  versions, but most customers start out with the  balancing and replenishing  Sundara (Beauty) Face Oil.

10. Ayurveda Pura  Holistic Essentials

The secret behind good health and a radiant beauty is to identify and to balance your specific Doshas. Ayurveda Pura help you to determine your unique Doshas here  and then they’ve created a comprehensive range of skincare, Holistic Essentials, which have been expertly prepared in the UK with natural ingredients that are free of SLS, artificial perfume, parabens and animal products.

    Aggregate information (non-personally identifiable information)

    Eluxe Magazine may, from time to time, automatically collect aggregate information about our visitors to our advertisers, sponsors, promotional partners and affiliates. This aggregate information includes, but is not limited to, IP addresses connecting to our site, how many persons visited a particular page or activity, dates and times of image uploads, device characteristics, operating system, browser type, type of connection, page and image viewing statistics, and incoming and outgoing links.

    Like most websites, we use log files to store this information. None of this automatically collected technical information is associated with any identified person at the time it is collected, but it could be associated with you under two circumstances: First, if you choose to give us personal data about you as described above, the technical information we collect that would otherwise be anonymous could instead be logged as coming from you. Second, if we are required to disclose our server logs as a result of a subpoena or other legal process, some third party such as your internet provider could match our anonymous technical information with you, using information beyond what is found on our servers.

    Eluxe Magazine may use cookies, web beacons, pixel tags, or other anonymous tracking information to improve our server’s interaction with your computer, and we may partner with third party advertisers who may (themselves or through their partners) place or recognise a unique cookie on your browser. These cookies enable more customised ads, content, or services to be provided to you. To trigger these cookies, we may pass an encrypted or “hashed” (non-human readable) identifier corresponding to your email address to a Web advertising partner, who may place a cookie on your computer. No personally identifiable information is on, or is connected to, these cookies. Although our servers currently don’t respond to “do-not-track” requests (see below), you can block these cookies in other ways, for example by searching “[your browser] + disable cookies.”

    Eluxe Magazine will never share, sell, lease, or rent PII to unaffiliated third parties, except in the following circumstances:

    a) If we have a good faith belief that we must disclose such information for legal reasons, such as to enforce our Terms of Service, protect or assert the rights, property interests, or personal safety of Eluxe (including its employees, directors, suppliers, distributors, service providers, users of the Website or others), or if we are otherwise required to disclose such information by law. We will disclose information only to the extent necessary to comply with the purpose of the request.

    b) We may share aggregate, anonymous or summary information regarding our customers and their behaviors with partners, advertisers or other third parties. This data is not personal information and so will not identify you personally. We may share information with companies that provide support services to us, such as a printer, mailing house, fulfillment-company, credit card processor, email service provider or web host, amongst others. These parties may need personal information about you in order to perform their functions. However, these parties may not use any personal information we share with them about you for any other purpose other than in connection with performing supporting functions for us.

    You have the right at any time to prevent us from contacting you for marketing purposes. If and when we send a promotional communication to a user, the user can opt out of further promotional communications by following the unsubscribe instructions provided in each promotional e-mail. Please note that notwithstanding the promotional preferences you indicate by unsubscribing or opting out in some other fashion, we may continue to send you administrative emails including, for example, periodic updates to our Privacy Policy.

    In order to access a profile on Eluxe Magazine’s shop, you must first create an account with a username and password. The registration system requires that a valid email address be used to confirm the account. You should choose a username that does not include your last name and does not specify your city or your address. Eluxe Magazine asks that you use your first name only, or an alias, for your display name. This is to safeguard your privacy and protection. We do not use and cannot access this information.

    Eluxe Magazine is 100% opposed to unsolicited commercial email (“spam”). We do not have any desire to send unsolicited marketing emails to anyone without permission and we do not sell or provide user email addresses to any unauthorised third party in violation of this Policy. All of our newsletters and other general email marketing communications also include an “unsubscribe” opt-out link that you may use to tell us to stop sending you marketing emails.

    In the event of a change in control resulting from, for example, a sale to, or merger with, another entity, or in the event of a sale of assets or a bankruptcy, Eluxe Magazine reserves the right to transfer your personal information to the new party in control, or the party acquiring assets. We will only do so if the party we transfer the information to agrees that they will abide by our Privacy Policy for as long as they hold the information, and that they will not transfer the information to any other party who will not abide by our Privacy Policy.

    We use third-party advertising companies to deliver online advertising. These companies facilitate the delivery of ads, conduct market research, and use cookies for record-keeping purposes. These cookies sometimes enable the companies to serve you ads tailored to things you have shown an interest in based on your prior web activity. This is generally known as behavioral advertising. For example, this means that if you frequently read movie reviews online, it is possible that you might see ads on other websites relating to upcoming movies. Online advertising companies generally conduct this activity in an anonymous format, with online information not combined with information that would allow for your identification.

    The third-party companies that will be serving advertisements on Eluxe Magazine may include DoubleClick, Google and Taboola.

    We may periodically modify, alter, or update these policies. We will alert users to any material changes to this policy by posting the revised information here. We encourage you to review our Privacy Policy on a regular basis to stay informed about how we are protecting the personal information we collect. Your continued use of TGT’s website constitutes your agreement to this Privacy Policy and any future updates.
