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.

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.

Favorite Cleanser

This has become my favorite daily cleanser. I have sensitive skin and the Vata cleanser does not irritate my skin. It leaves my skin soft and smooth.

My facial cleanser

It gently cleanses and exfoliates and leaves my skin feel softer, smoother and clearer. Highly recommend it!

My daily gentle cleanser

This cleanser is so gentle in addition to being exfoliating. It's been great for my skin now that it's drier than it used to be. Love the earthy smell too!

Perfect for my skin type!

I have been using this vata cleanser for years and it's perfect for my dry, sensitive skin. It gently exfoliates and cleans without leaving my skin feeling greasy. My skin never gets dried out and is so soft. The neem purifying cream is a great compliment to this cleanser. I love it!
