The word Ayurveda means 'the science of life', and it is an ancient medicine system from India, seeking to treat and integrate mind, body and spirit using a holistic approach. Diet, natural herb remedies, meditation, breathing, and physical therapy are all important parts of Ayurveda.
When choosing the ingredients for the products at Under Your Skin we've been truly inspired by Ayurveda and the power of herbs, plants and flowers.
Our two main ingredients in the Body & Hair series - Stem Cell Extract from Milk Thistle and Yuzu we've chosen because of their benefits according to Ayurveda. The Milk Thistle is known to be good for skin because of its high content of antioxidants, it has the ability to replenish dead skin cells and therefore makes the skin healthy looking and radiant. If taken Milk Thistle orally, it is said to detox the liver and lower the levels of cholesterol in the body.
The Yuzu extract is high in Vitamin C and can boost collagen production, restoring elasticity and cell renewal. The citrus scent of Yuzu is said to soothe and calm dry skin according to Ayurveda.
At Under Your Skin will continuously learn about Ayurveda and will share our knowledge with you and we will soon launch more wellness products in line with a holistic approach, we hope that you want to come along the journey!
