Kapha Herbal Cleanser
For Oily Skin
One of three dosha face cleansers, this stimulating formula is for Kapha skin types. A purifying blend featuring fenugreek, ritha, and sandalwood, this face cleanser is ideal for oily skin, as well as blemish-prone skin types. Remove impurities and congestion while healing Ayurvedic botanicals regulate oil production without over-drying.
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.
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 Kapha dosha and Kapha type skin?
In Ayurveda, Kapha dosha is the combination of water and earth energies. When out of balance, Kapha type skin can manifest as excessively oily and congested, with enlarged pores and a tendency towards cystic acne.

The Kapha Herbal Cleanser works great for my oily skin! I can add just a little water to make a thick paste to gently exfoliate my skin or I can add more water as a regular cleanse if my face doesn't need the exfoliation. I use this nightly to cleanse the oils from my skin from the day.
I use this everyday mixed with the pitta cleanser. For years I've struggled to find an effective, natural cleanser, until introduced to Pratima’s products. Gently thorough and leaves my skin feeling healthy. I absolutely love!
My teen exfoliates with this and uses the Neem moisturizing lotion. Originally, she also applied the sandlewood lotion directly to problem areas. But the combination of Kapha cleansing and Neem lotion keeps her skin so clear and healthy. We love it!!
