FAQs

Browse our FAQ's to find all the answers to your questions about Ayurda's all natural, organic skin care product range.

Are Ayurda products organic?

The ingredients used in Ayurda products are 'Wild Crafted' in the Himalayas. A harvesting technique is used where the fruit or plant part is gathered from its natural wild habitat and handpicked according to ancient techniques.

Wild Crafted is usually organic but not certified, normally because there is no certifying agency in the area where it is grown. Wild Crafted herbs are grown wild, without the use of fertilizers or pesticides. They are grown naturally in areas where the plants are native to the region.

Are Ayurda products produced ethically?

Yes. Ayurda products are manufactured in GMP (Goods and Manufacturing Practice) registered companies. This is an internationally recognized standard for quality assurance and ethical production. These established companies (one hundred years old) are leaders in the field of Ayurveda with highly trained Ayurvedic doctors and pharmacologists working hard to produce high quality, result orientated products.We have used Palm kernel oil in some of our products which is sourced from sustainable and ethical plantations. No animal habitat is disturbed or harmed.

Are the products ok to travel with to warm environments?

Yes. Ayurda products are made in India and the natural ingredients remain stable in any natural environment.

Do Ayurda products contain emulsifiers?

Yes! we understand emulsifiers are needed but we only use the best and the safest.As an irony for vegetarians, most Emulsifiers which are not vegetable based are produced from pig fats. So even if you avoid eating pig fat, you will absorb it from cosmetics. To make a cream or lotion it is necessary to use an Emulsifier. The best ones are derived from coconut or palm kernel oil. They are safe to work with and are even used in the food industry. These are used as emulsifiers in the production of vegan ice creams.They can be eaten and are very safe to use. Our Palm kernel oils are ethically sourced and come from sustainable or fair trade plantation and no animal habitathas been harmed.

Do Ayurda Shampoos contain Sodium Laurel Sulphate (SLS)?

No. We use Areetha, Shikakai and the Indian Soap Nut as natural foaming agents.

Do I need to use a toner?

Toners are an important part of your skin care regime. They help to balance the skin and also work as a transporter for whatever is applied over the top e.g. your moisturiser will be able to penetrate the superficial layer of the skin and work at a deeper level. Ayurda toners contain natural fragrances of flower and herb extracts that help calm the nerves and induce relaxation. They are easy to use and are applied in a spray mist.

How can Ayurda products possibly give me longevity?

If you look after your skin with the right and appropriate preparations for your type, the strength of your skin will be maintained, thereby slowing down the aging process and daily wear-and-tear.

I have sensitive skin. How can I be sure these products will not react badly?

When using products containing essential oils, reactivity is more likely to happen as the essences are concentrated. With Ayurda, there are no extracted essences. Instead the raw herbs are used in the production process so they are not as volatile and the skin absorbs them more gently and less reactively.

If Ayurda don't use synthetic preservatives, how are the products preserved?

Ayurda products contain natural preservatives such as oils, beeswax, carrot seed extract and grapefruit seed extract.

Is the Ayurda range developed by a doctor?

Yes. The range has been developed by Dr.Ajit and RippanSandhu. Ayurda is the only Ayurvedic range in Australasia backed by a qualified Ayurvedic Doctor.

What is the shelf life of Ayurda products?

The shelf life is 12 months after opening, but can last anywhere up to 24 months.

Why is something "ancient" any better than something "modern"?

Modern processes change constantly according to the latest discoveries. The latest chemical equipment makes extracts and concentrates, then these are re-added to other ingredients. Ancient processes emphasize natural raw basic ingredients; the recipes have remained unchanged for thousands of years. The ancient process also uses the whole plant in the preparation.
