A vast array of natural moisturizers are available. Every Ayurvedic physician has formulated his/her own special recipe. Ours is the a tridoshic formula developed by vaidya Scott Gerson, M.D., Ph.D. Scholar (Ayu). Its main ingredients are listed below (but not the actual recipe!).

They are prepared using traditional Ayurvedic rasashastra methods.
