Did you know.!

The skin is the largest organ in the body & whatever you use on it is directly absorbed in the bloodstream. In the modern stressed out world when you add to the burden on your body with chemical skin creams and products you are adding to health problems. Some skin products have been found to contain mercury which show up in the urine of those using them, so you can imagine the extend of the damage. Our ancient heritage of ayurveda gives us an edge over the rest of the world since, such products are not harmful. So one must be very careful while choosing the skin care product & make right choices.
