Zoom PRATIMA Ayurvedic Skincare Vata Herbal Cleanser

Vata Herbal Cleanser


For Dry & Dehydrated Skin

Size: 2 oz

One of three dosha face cleansers, this rejuvenating formula is for Vata skin types. A restorative blend of tulsi, comfrey, and sandalwood, this face cleanser is ideal for dry, dehydrated skin, as well as mature skin types. Thoroughly cleanse while replenishing cells with vital nutrients that support radiant complexions and soft skin.

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 Vata dosha and Vata type skin?

In Ayurveda, Vata dosha is the combination of air and space energies. When out of balance, Vata type skin can manifest as dry, dehydrated, dull, and flaky with signs of premature aging.

Love love ❤️

This is an amazing cleanser.I love how it makes my skin feel.You can use it as a cleanser or a mask.I will definitely be ordering this product again.

Love this cleanser!

I took the Dosha quiz about 10 years ago, so I decided to retake the quiz. To my surprise (but not really), my dosha changed. One of my new purchases was the Vata cleanser. I love it! It smells great, and also has a softer feel on my skin than the Pitta cleanser. It still has the graininess that I love. After using this cleanser, my skin feels exfoliated, soft, and moisturized all at once. I will always be a fan of Dr. Pratima's products. Over the years I've tried other items, and am always drawn back to this amazing line of skin care. I highly recommend!

Perfect face cleasner

Absolutely Perfect

I truly love this product, Vata Herbal Cleanser. For many years I had been purchasing the Kapha Herbal Cleanser and loved it, until recently after I lost 45 pounds and my dosha changed, I realized I was more of a vata dosha now. Since the change of product, my face is much more hydrated and incredibly smooth. It has been years since this was the case. Doing this along with dry brushing once a week has been a game changer. I love that it's a powder and not a chemical slathering of something. I also have the hair powder shampoo/conditioner that has also been so nutritious for my scalp. Thank you Pratima for your great work and products. You are much appreciated and the best products I have found out there.
