The Twice Daily Ritual: The first rule of Ayurvedic skincare is cleanse, nourish, and moisturize no matter what type of skin you have. This 3-step routine is essential to counter the effects of the environment, stress, and the skin's natural imbalances.

CLEANSE: In the palm of your hand, mix a few drops of water to a small amount of Vata Herbal Cleanser to make a liquidy paste. Gently massage the mixture on the face in upward, circular motions. Rinse with warm water.

NOURISH: After cleansing, mix 3 drops each of Vata Face Essential Oil and Liposomes Vitamin C Serum and massage thoroughly over face and neck until oils have fully absorbed. Best applied on clean, damp skin.

MOISTURIZE: Apply Amla Collagen Cream over face and neck to provide a protective hydrating barrier.

Vata Essentials Starter Set



For extra exfoliation, add less water to your cleanser to obtain a thicker consistency. The mixture can also be left on the skin for 5-10 minutes and will work as a mask, further absorbing impurities.

Care & Shelf Life

Everything you need

Everything you need in one set!
There were the first set of products from Pratimaskincare that I tried. And 4 years later this set remain my favorite. It's not just some skin care products, but a ritual of self-love that gives great pleasure <3

Sabira Baratbaeva
Lovely experience

The aroma and scent of the products are incredible. It leaves my face clean, soft, light and glowing. The only thing is that the cleansing powder is a bit harsh for my skin. I try not to massage it but rather apply and leave on skin for a minute or so.

Sharon Beddard
Lovely product

I used Pratima many years ago but then got away from it. I ordered the vata starter kit and am so happy to be using these wonderful healthy products again. My skin feels so soft and happy!

Great for travel!

This is a great travel set with all the products I use, and the glass containers are easy to refill!


I love this brand. This kit is convenient to sample new products. I'm enjoying the face cream. After the hysterectomy, it grossly changed my skin but this helps me feel much better and my skin feels more normal. I've been following this product line for over 25 years. That's amazing.
