OIL for your face... who knew!
"It made a difference almost straight away. It's very light but just a few drops is all you need to moisturize your face...I’m in my 70’s. I have tried all kinds of creams over the years but this is wonderful! Highly recommend!"   -Gillian S.

  • Reason #1
    Our skin produces oil, not cream. Period. 
  • Reason #2
    When you use humectant creams/lotions containing hyaluronic acid or glycerin in it, your skin is counting on the weather to stay moisturized. If your skin is layered with a humectant and the weather is dreary, the lotion will start pulling the moisture out of the deeper layers of your skin, drying it deeply and profoundly. This process is also known as trans epidermal water loss. It is not good for you. An oil does not dry out your skin. 
  • Reason #3
    Oils are both emollient and occlusive in their natural state, without any interference of additional ingredients. Whereas most creams cannot perform the occlusive activity or retain moisture within the layers of your skin. 
  • Reason #4
    A popular horror tale is that oils clog pores, no matter which one it is. But the fact is that different oils work on different skin types. There are fatty acids that naturally occur in plant oils – oleic and linoleic acid. The ratio of the two acids present across the range of oils varies.
    For instance, an oil with more linoleic acid content in it can be extremely useful for people with mild acne and pimple issues. A study found that part of the reason why breakouts occur is due to the lower amount of linoleic acid in the sebum of their skin. 

  • Reason #5
    Applying face oils bestows a dewy, velvet-like moisturization on the skin which a cream textured face formula won’t easily deliver. Oils also emolliate the skin in a way that softens the look of scaliness, fine lines and wrinkles. Creams are thicker and add texture to your already textured face. Instead of smoothening the face, they do the opposite to your skin. 
  • Reason #6
    Creams and lotions are just a medium to transfer the ingredients into the skin, whereas oils are an enriching ingredient in themselves! Even if a nourishing oil like sesame is used onto the skin without any additional support, your skin will drink up the nourishment and moisturization and feel healthier. 
  • Reason #7
    A small quantity of oil goes a long way in serving the skin with utmost care. Most creams do not last as long, as they do not spread as smoothly on the skin! 
  • Reason #8
    Ever wondered why oils carry a vast spectrum of unique benefits depending on which one you use for your skin? It’s because oils are extracted from different sources of the plant kingdom – flowers, stem, seeds, leaves, nuts, vegetables, which branch out into hundreds and hundreds of species and hence, nutrition value. Creams do not possess such an impressive, rich, earthy, profile! 
  • Reason #9
    While creams are anywhere from 60% to 90% water, the strength or potency of the ingredients used cannot compete with the oil format, since they are skincare potions in their original, concentrated, most potent form. Ayurvedic potions are especially adept at blending the right oils in right combinations and right quantities so you get the most of a formula without any downsides.
  • Reason #10
    Oil is to skin what rain is to earth! 
  • Reason #11
    Oils work better than just lotions or creams because they interact with lipids and pull out the oil-soluble dirt and debris with much more efficiency. 

Reason #12
Oils themselves are plant-based and natural and carry nourishing properties without any additives or extra ingredients. 

Reason #13

Creams make your skin CRY! Literally! The extra film and grease never quite settle.
  
Reason #14
Act on penetrating Ayurvedic Oils not creams - the Actives present in the oil are potent and take a DEEP dive right into your skin.

Reason #15
Your skin suffers every single time you stuff chemical-laden creams onto it. Stop the suffering! Ayurvedic Oils are chemical-free, potent, and naturally smoothen the appearance of fine lines. Your skin celebrates oil.

Reason #16
Our stratum corneum is bound together by a layer called the lipid barrier. When that barrier wears off due to pollution, dry weather or other factors, our skin is stripped off our natural oils. Ayurvedic oils strengthen the skin barrier and protect it by forming a shield on the stratum corneum of the skin. An Ayurvedic oil, which is made with care and authenticity will be non-comedogenic and will add that extra layer on your skin which is light and breathable. Most creams need waxes and emulsifiers to perform this function which are synthetic and unnatural. 

Reason #17
Hydration, Moisturization, Creamy Lotion -- Confusion? No need for multiple products. Banish confusion, save time and get superior results with one solution = an Ayurvedic oil.

Reason #18
Don’t slip on the slippery route to Moisturization. Ayurvedic Oils soak in your skin almost instantly.

Reason #19
Creams are heavier than oils, which means, they can congest the skin and block the pores. If you use a well-made Ayurvedic oil and massage it properly into the skin, the results you will notice can be spellbinding.

Reason #20
Lock up on the Hydration, Stock up on the moisture, With a Barrel full of herb-laden Oils. Ayurvedic oils = Lock, Stock, Barrel of Skincare.

Reason #20

Lock up on the Hydration, Stock up on the moisture, With a Barrel full of herb-laden Oils. Ayurvedic oils = Lock, Stock, Barrel of Skincare.

Reason #21
Sesame oil, often used as the base in Ayurvedic skincare formulas contains the right balance of oleic and linoleic acids. This translates to multiple skin benefits for both, oily as well as dry skin. An interesting fact is that Ayurveda is a 5000-year-old science – a time when modern terms like linoleic acid did not exist. And yet, we see how this ancient science was already able to crack all the skincare codes that are in existence today. 
 
Reason #22
Oil is to skin what fresh air is to life

Reason #23
Oils consist only of oils procured from potent active ingredients. They do not contain water whereas creams are a combination of water, fat emulsions, as well as active ingredients that are diluted. Make a choice!

Reason #24
Creams may clog pores—oils cleanse them, let them be, penetrate potent actives, breathe life into them.

Reason #25
Oil are precious for they come from the paradise called nature. Creams come from Labs. Make a choice. 

Reason #26
Oils are created by cooking herbs and other potent natural ingredients by a hand that meticulously stirs and stirs them into perfection. Creams are born in a laboratory.

Reason #27

Light, Non-greasy, strengthening our natural skin barrier, OILS are humble hydrating tools of beauty that don’t make too much noise by leaving a layer of film UNLIKE Creams.

Reason #28

Natural oils in our food are essential to a healthy body; Natural Ayurvedic oils on our face, hair, and body are essential for us to look our supple, glowing, radiant best!

Reason #29
Your kitchen is sacred: food cooked in healthy oils comes to life and instills health in your body. Ayurveda is a sanctuary for skin where herbs are cooked in accordance with the ancient texts to create WELLNESS formulas known as OILS to bring the same sanctity to your skin.

Reason #30
Creams offer temporary, short-term relief without a sustainable, natural plan. Ayurvedic Oils are natural moisturizers—their traditional, time-tested, chemical-free qualities make them unique and PURE

Reason #31
Oil is to skin what Brightness is to the Sun.

Reason #32
Sneha in Sanskrit translates to Love as well as to Oil... Ayurveda translates to the ancient science of Life! Applying Ayurvedic oils is an act of self-love. Creams are a modern-day invention, bereft of the thoughtful wisdom and love that goes into the making as well as the use of Ayurvedic oils!

Reason #33

Pollution, Urbanization, unnatural, chemical-laden Moisturizers, Creams, and Make - up - have caused your skin GRIEF—reflecting in the aggressive lines on your face and neck. Wipe the greasy tears with Traditional Time-tested Oils. Ayurveda’s answer to flawless, herb-induced Radiance!

Reason #34
Anything applied externally can be absorbed into the skin. Your pores are the doorway to the insides – capillaries, blood vessels, cells. Watch what you feed your skin. Choose concentrated herbs for tangible, noticeable effects on the skin. 

Reason #35

Skin is too precious for short-term, heavy solutions like creams. Think Authentic Ayurvedic OILS. Think long-term. Think Holistic Wellness that naturally emits Beauty.  

Reason #36

Oils restore the lost natural oils of your skin back into the layers, leaving it plump and hydrated. Sesame oil balances the oiliness-dryness ratio of your skin due to its excellent composition of linoleic acid and oleic acid that exists in balanced ratio in sesame oil.

Reason #37
Oils like coconut and sesame exhibit antioxidant and anti-microbial properties. That’s why oils need no preservatives or additives to increase their shelf-life. While creams depend on multiple preservatives, stabilizers and additives.

Reason #38
Studies have shown that sesame oil can block 30% of UV rays while coconut can block 20% – all naturally.

Reason #39
In Ayurveda, Abhyanga or a full body massage with dosha-specific oil is an integral part of skincare as well as mind and body care. While oils have been revered for generations for body, scalp, head and hair massage, creams cannot perform that function.

Reason #40
Oils have been in use for skin and body care for centuries. A body massage with an Ayurvedic oil represents how oils contribute to ancient self-care rituals to establish a deeper connection with the self. Oils are free of side effects and are 100% natural.

Reason #41

Ayurvedic oils = beauty + wellness.

Creams are a modern-day invention, based on superficial benefits and synthetic support. They are a trend rather than a tradition that has been effective for generations 

Reason #42

Ayurvedic oils have high penetration power, so the delivery of the potency/power of the herbs is more efficient. They are usually polyherbal where these herbs are hand-collected, hand-washed, dried and hand-pounded. Each treatment is done to upscale the benefits that the ingredients offer. The Ayurvedic oil is cooked with these treated herbs and undergo a laborious process before they are finally ready for use! This increases their penetration power as well as their efficiency to moisturize and nourish the skin.

Reason #43

Ayurvedic skincare oils are brewed manually by experts for the health of your skin just how food is cooked by a loved one with specified, measured ingredients for our body’s health.

Reason #44
Many skincare cream bottles will carry a word in the ingredient list, simply written as “fragrance”. With just one word, creams can cause your skin a great deal of discomfort as synthetic fragrances contain ambiguous chemicals and toxins that you may not even be aware of. When it comes to authentic Ayurvedic oils, they do not contain any added synthetic fragrances that will harm your skin.

Reason #45
A body oil massage can effectively help in clearing out product build up that if left unchecked on the skin can clog pores and cause discomfort.

Reason #46
Oils created with Ayurvedic ingredients and expertise are a result of 5000 years old wisdom that has survived through centuries to reach us! These oils are now not just competing with but also outsmarting the skincare science of the 21st century!
 
Reason #47
An Ayurvedic oil is the best medium to access the potent gifts of nature for the skin in an easy-to-use, holistic, loving manner since they are pure nature in a bottle. We cannot say the same for creams as they need synthetic binders or additives to deliver the same benefits.

Reason #48
An oil body massage before taking a shower and a gentle application afterwards can emolliate your skin from head to toe and keep it soft throughout the day without repeatedly reaching for a synthetic moisturizer or lotion. It can give you an immediate hydration lock and act as a moisture-guard for your body. 

Reason #49
Areas like knees and elbows tend to get dry and dehydrated quickly, become dull and feel rough. Here, oils can be the ultimate savior. Sesame, coconut, rice bran and olive oil are a few oils that that can moisturize elbows and knees and keep them looking healthy and bright. Creams need repeated applications throughout the day and have a temporary ability to keep these extra-dry areas moisturized.

Reason #50

Trees, they shower us with love, protection, and provide us with so much space to blossom underneath. Quite like TREES, OILS guard us from toxins, don’t clog our pores, breathe life into our skin with highly concentrated natural actives.

Now you know how Ayurvedic Face Oils benefit skin in the most natural and non-invasive way. They are superpowers, bottled for supercharged skin.
Unlike some other ointments, creams, and face oils that are simply a blend of base oils and
essential oils, iYURA’s Ayurvedic oils are an extremely effective combination of exotic herbs that are carefully cooked together according to the Ayurvedic procedures recommended in the old Ayurvedic texts.
It’s a sacred, meticulous and a laborious process that creates transformational oils. 

I put this oil on my face every morning, and I get fascinated over and over again. My skin feels soft, and I am definitely loosing some of the wrinkles. I no longer use face creams of any kind, only Kesarady oil. The Kesaradi oil doesn’t leave the shine, or any oily residue on the skin; it’s absolutely marvelous.

-Zeljka N. about iYURA Kesaradi Oil

Great product

I purchased Manjish Glow Elixir - Ayurvedic Night-Time Face Oil . I loved it . I have tried a lot of face creams and moisturizer but this is undoubtedly the best. Thanks Ayurveda.  

-Chiara M.
Age:42, about Manjish Glow Elixir   

Wasn’t prepared to fall in love

It seemed counterintuitive at first to slather oil all over my already oil-prone face, but the results were the proof I needed...My makeup applies better, and my skin feels lush, nourished, and vibrant. I am 45, so I wouldn't dream of heading out without foundation on at the very least, I don't like bare. However, the condition of my skin is at its finest, and makeup continues to serve as a fun and colorful enhancement to my healthier skin. I've tried, and spent tons of money, on various products over the years, all promising miracles. That ends here, as I have found my routine staple for day & night. No more creams & moisturizers & useless lotions, the iYura Day & Night will be my go-to until I'm too old to care.

-Rachel M. about iYURA Day & Night Duo   

Happy Customer

I wanted to switch to a natural moisturizer for a while was skeptical to try something new since my skin is very sensitive and prone to breakouts , Am glad I made the switch to kesaradi oil for one I love the smell and I do see my skin getting more even and clearer each day. Will never go back to chemical filled moisturizer for sure !!

Great products

I have been using Kesaradi Oil now for about 3 months. Recently, I bought a Kansa wand. Using the wand and the oil together has really made a difference to my skin. I was sceptical about how these products would work but I am delighted. I will be 57 in a month and just yesterday someone told me that my face & skin looked glowing. I have stopped using coverup and and heavy creams full of chemicals. I have also started using the Manjish Glow Elixir at night. It’s a wonderful product too. The Kansa wand has done wonders for puffiness on my face and sagging skin below my eyes. I’m happy.  

-Victoria M.

My order arrived fast! My skin is loving this oil. Now after two weeks I notice my vertical lines on each side of my mouth are diminishing!!! Will order this now regularly instead of the expensive, poisonous creams on the market.  

-Lim R.

Better than all the expensive anti aging creams out there!

I am on my second bottle of Kesardi Oil and I love it! As I have gotten older, I was noticing that my wrinkles were getting deeper and more well defined. But, I have sensitive skin and break out from a lot of products (especially those with Dimethicone). I also have been trying to move to more natural products in all of my self care because it’s just better. So, using this product has a lot of positive aspects to it. What I didn’t expect is how much better I would look using it. My wrinkles are so much less pronounced and my skin always has a dewy look. It also makes my makeup go on so much more smoothly. Love this product and I definitely plan to continue using it.  

-Sue O.

Amazing

I am a 62-year-old woman with a lot of acne scarring and marking. I tried Kesaradi Oil and I can’t believe how amazing my skin looks... my overall skin appearance is smoother and healthier looking then when I was in my 20s. My skin glows! I’m only on my second bottle of oil and can’t wait to see how fabulous it’s going to look in the months to come. No other facial cream or serum has given this spectacular a result.
