Ayruveda is is one of the world’s oldest holistic healing systems. It emphasizes good health and prevention and treatment of illness through lifestyle practices (such as massage, meditation, yoga, and dietary changes) and the use of herbal remedies.
This eastern medicine has gained popularity in the West for many years now and is becoming even more popular thanks to the wellness movement that is sweeping across the world. Many beauty brands use Ayurveda as a foundation for their products. Sometimes, they even create products specifically for one of the three doshas or energies. Vata, Pitta, and Kapha are fundamental in Ayurveda, they are the three doshas/energies and we are all made of a unique combination of these three forces.
Many of the Ayurveda beauty brands logically originated from the cradle of the movement, India. However, nowadays, a few western brands have based their foundation on Ayurvedic principles. Let’s have a look at a few of these brands :
