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.

This product has amazing results, when combined with the liposomes vitamin C it’s the holy grail combination of skincare!!

Refreshing and effective

This works wonders for my oily prone skin especially in the morning. It does not irritate my skin despite the fragrance. I give myself a quick massage and this has been helping to keep my skin clear and glowing.

Great oil for congested skin and kapha season

I have decided to use the oil since we are in a kapha season and I really like it. It does help with congestion, reducing pores and keeping my skin less oily. I also like the fact that I changed a bit from my regular products and I go with the season. I feel it helps me to balance my skin better.
