Best face wash I've ever used

I still use this face wash daily after about 9 years. It's so gentle and cleans my skin very thoroughly. It's a great exfoliant a few times a week when you let it slightly dry on your face for a few minutes before gently sloughing it off.

Ashleigh Cortese
Miracle Cleanser

After reading Pratima’s book Absolute Beauty, I simply had to try my hand at Ayurvedic skin care.
I have only be using this cleanser for a month and miracles abound. The positive results are endless - I am literally watching an acne scar that I’ve had on my forehead for over 10 years heal to the point where it’s almost nonexistent. And we’re talking serious pockmark status!
I never thought a cleanser could heal my skin this much. Completely and utterly in love!

Kim H
A Friend to Sensitive Skin

My skin is the type of sensitive that isn't really addressed by cosmetics companies. I have to stay away from scents, chemicals, and even certain types of material for fear of breaking out into rashes, dry patches, or welts. I have spent years looking for a cleanser that did not go to war with my skin and have tried every brand purporting to be for "sensitive skin" - cleansers, creams, masks, name-brand, off-brand, you name it - and nothing has worked so well as this product. It is a relief to have finally found a cleanser I can use, and a company I can trust to take care of my skin. I use this Pitta cleanser along with the Pitta essential oil in the summer and the Kapha cleanser and essential oil in the winter. My skin feels refreshed, clean, and so soft with this product, and I won't go back to anything store-bought again.

Paulette Bane
Soothing Facial Cleanser

This sensitive skin cleanser leaves my face feeling deeply nourished. I have very sensitive skin, and when I use this product I can feel my skin thanking me. Highly recommend.

Love this cleanser for sensitive combination skin!

I use this a couple times a week. I love it as a gentle, but effective exfoliator for my sensitive, combination skin. I'm prone to hormonal, adult acne and, when I use this (followed by the neem soothing mask), I really notice a decrease in inflammation on my face.
