In the ancient language of Sanskrit, the term ‘Ahimsa’ literally means non-violence, to do no harm.
Our new Lemongrass Facial Polish embodies this gentle philosophy of Ahimsa. It is an active, exfoliating treatment that targets deep pore cleansing and polishing of the skin, while respecting the fact that the skin is a living, vibrant and interactive organ. We make a distinction between products made with harsh, aggressive epidermal-dissolving acids -- and this serenely gentle, life-affirming, holistic, results-oriented Facial Polish.
Made by hand, each ingredient is added one-at-a-time, then sifted all together to create a fine, fragrant powder. It features an exceptional selection of Ayurvedic medicinal plants: herbs, roots, bark and flowers traditionally known for their restorative effects such as Neem, Tulsi, Manjishtha and Arjuna (beneficial for uneven pigmentation), all remarkable plant allies for addressing skin-related imbalances.
I created it specifically to purify and energize the skin, polish and exfoliate dead, dry surface cells peacefully without relying on the devitalizing action of chemical acids and peels, so common in skin care products today.
Consistent use reveals clarity and glow, purifies pores, smoothes and refines complexion, minimizes uneven pigmentation, removes signs of heat and redness and balances excess oil secretion. Effective for use on most heat-related i skin conditions. A multi-tasking product, Lemongrass Face Polish serves the role of cleanser, exfoliating treatment, mask, astringent, and skin tonic all rolled into one.
