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.

I have tried numerous exfoliating cleansers over the years and this is my absolute favorite! I have used it religiously and love the way it makes my skin feel.

Excellent Light Exfoliation

I have sensitive skin and use the Pitta cleanser as a light exfoliator. The cleanser is not irritating and leaves my skin smooth and soft. I also love the light aroma of the cleanser.

The perfect cleanser for combination skin

I like this HERBAL CLEANSER. This product is perfect for my combination skin. Most of all I like that it does not dry out my skin as it happens from CLEANSER of other companies. And of course the completely natural composition pleases. The skin feels it.


Wow! I didn’t know what to expect, being I never used a powder cleanser before. I’m glad I purchased this for my combo skin feels extremely soft and the cleanser rinses well without residue. My new fave!

Love it

I have said this in other reviews but I'll say it again. The doctors royally did me with antibiotics for acne as a teenager. I became vegetarian and cleaned up my diet and began to look for herbal solutions. I came across her book more than 20 years ago. We were all told to clean our faces more and that oil was the problem. I took a chance on her products and put the right oils on my skin. It was a nirvana moment. Your face just screams YES! I love it. I do change products with the seasons and when I travel. I generally stay with the pita. Everyone is different. If you want to feel your best, give yourself a treat and try it. I guarantee any other products later will be a let down.
And, if you have teenagers, start them with these products. I can testify on any holy book the so called medicines from the doctor were worse than the acne. I take full credit for this review. I would give her 10 stars.
