Why we love it: Finally a modern take on holistic Ayurvedic skincare.
This powder cleanser was specially developed for oily skin. It is based on white and green clay, which cleanses the skin naturally and thoroughly. Since the powder contains no surfactants, the pH of the skin is not disturbed. In Ayurveda, oily skin is the result of an excess of KAPHA. It can be soothed with the properties of bitter, sharp and stimulating.
