Zoom PRATIMA Ayurvedic Skincare Pitta Herbal Cleanser

Pitta Herbal Cleanser


For combination & sensitive skin

Size: 2 oz

One of three dosha face cleansers, this balancing formula is for Pitta skin types. Our soothing blend of sandalwood, coriander, and lavender is an ideal face cleanser for combination skin, as well as acne and sensitive skin types. Healing and detoxifying herbs thoroughly cleanse while replenishing cells with herbal nutrients, leaving skin soft and smooth.

Activate this dry herbal cleanser with a few drops of water for a smooth paste, or use less water to create a thicker consistency for gentle face exfoliation.

A PRATIMA Skincare best-seller.

PRATIMA all-natural cleansers are made with 100% pure Ayurvedic herbs, including crushed roots and flower extracts that remove deep-seated dirt and toxins, promote healthy exfoliation, deliver protein-rich botanicals and visibly rejuvenate and refresh complexions without altering the skin’s natural pH level.

What is Pitta dosha and Pitta type skin?

In Ayurveda, Pitta dosha is the combination of fire and water energies. When out of balance, Pitta type skin can manifest as inflammation, redness, breakouts, acne, sensitivity, and rosacea.

We trust Pratima skin care

I was already using Pratima face products when my daughter came into her teenage acne years. I began to buy kapha exfoliator for her, along with sandalwood and Neem products. She learned how to care for her skin. Now she is 19 and attends school outside of polluted NYC. Her skin looks phenomenal — so she has started using the Pitta cleanser for regular care. She still uses the Neem cream at night. (As much for the smell, which she loves, as anything else!) This combination is working very well.

Excellent Product

My go-to cleanser that I’ve been using for years. My favorite part is that you can control how thick of a paste you want, whether looking to exfoliate or gentle wash. This cleanser is game-changing for those with acne-prone skin!

so so nourishing!

i have been using this cleanser ever since Pratima herself prescribed it to me over 7 years ago — and it is still the most thoroughly cleansing & nourishing one out there. it’s truly incredible how simple cleansing the skin should be … milk, lentils and some herbs … wonderful gifts from our Earth Mother. thank you Pratima.

Best face wash

I’ve been using the herbal cleanser for over 20 years and it’s amazing! It has the perfect texture to gently exfoliate and my skin feels smooth right away.

Perfect exfoliation

I've been using this for many years. My sensitive pitta skin loves the purity and simplicity of the ingredients. My favorite Pratima product!
