Grandma's skin secret - her homemade ubtan! Get the same glow and nourishment with our Ubtan Facewash.

“Ubtan” originated from the Sanskrit term “ub,” which refers to bathing. About 3000 years ago, Ubtan was a luxurious skin secret reserved for the royals and elites during the Vedic period. Eventually, the commoners adopted this traditional beauty treatment to pamper and glow-up brides before their weddings.

Ayurveda has a diverse range of ubtan recipes to suit different skin types and resolve different concerns. Yet, three essential ingredients are an absolute must to add to ubtans. Why? Cause these three powerful natural ingredients to benefit all skin types. And give skin a healthy radiance like no other.
