Dry skin is a common problem, more common than you think. What dry skin really needs to stay hydrated, healthy, supple and smooth are 2 things that are already established to the outside world -
But, this time, we are introducing a 3rd element to your weekly anti-dryness routine -
A humectant derived from natural sugar – Sorbitol, that has been proven to be 50% more beneficial than Hyaluronic Acid1 when it comes to its moisture-binding properties!
This hydrator works by binding water to the epidermis, creating a moisture binding film on the surface of the skin, giving it a soft, smooth, juicy and dewy look.
This process of binding hydrating and moisturizing elements to the deepest layers of the skin is what is known as ‘GUMMIFICATION'!
Through this unique process, Biosaccharide Gum prevents TEWL (Trans Epidermal Water Loss) by tethering the water from your skincare on to the deepest layers of the skin for a longer period of time, thereby discouraging dehydration of the skin!
Ayulogica’s hydra-boost gum-based water mask contains Biosaccharide gum as the base ingredient that apart from its moisture-binding properties, is also a potent humectant and moisturizer.
Also known as 'Fucogel'2 because of its richness in L-Fucose, Biosaccharide gum is a dynamic skin-conditioner which means that along with hydrating and moisturizing, it also recharges the skin with ample suppleness and smoothness and replenishes the skin’s lipid barrier.
But that’s not all that Biosaccharide Gum has to contribute to this hydra-boost formula.
In this lightweight, watery-gel formula, Biosaccharide Gum helps form a ‘second skin’ that acts as a film for the real skin below to soak up the hydration and prevents pollutants from penetrating the epidermis, all while still forming a ‘breathable matrix’ for the skin!
The powers of Biosaccharide Gum are so interesting that it has been coined a S.M.A.R.T Sugar2, for its multi-functional properties:
Most other hydrating skincare that we know of are either water based or oil based, but Aloe Vera Narangi Hydra-Boost Mask marks a revolution in the field of hydrating skincare in a hydra-gel textured, instant 3-minute moisture-binding face mask that requires no drying or peeling off!
To amplify the potency of this instant hydra-boost, it has been combined with another natural ultra-humectant:
Ayurveda’s ‘Miracle Plant’ with a polysaccharide-rich composition – Aloe Vera, that contains 98.5% water and imparts both hydration AND moisturization powers to the mask.
It also contains Mucopolysaccharides3, which help in binding moisture to the skin, along with elements that have cohesive effects on the layers of the skin which aid in yielding a smooth-looking texture3
According to modern research3, the gel found in the leaves of the plant contains more than 75 active compounds like enzymes, vitamins, minerals, salicylic acid, amino acids and many more.
A study6 reveals that these rich compounds in Aloe Vera have the potential to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and crepey-looking skin and promote a firmer and tighter look.
They also give the mask the ability to impart a cooling and soothing sensation when applied to sensitive skin.
The 3 Harbingers of
the Anti-Dryness Movement - Water, Oil & Gum, unite in this
Hydra-Boost Face Mask!
Along with the Binding properties of Biosaccharide Gum and Hydrating benefits of Aloe Vera, the formulation also contains 2 moisturizing oils - Sweet Orange Oil and Lemongrass Oil, both natural sources of Vitamin C, known for their even-toning and brightening properties.
These dryness-defeating moisturizing oils are boosters for clarity, radiance and smoothness and promote a healthy, supple look and feel!
What's more?! These oils are known for enhancing the look of overall skin texture, fasten the hydration from Aloe Vera and enrich the innate natural oils even further! The presence of Vitamin C in them helps reduce the look of blemishes and spots, remove 'ama' or toxins and prevent the appearance of signs of premature aging!
This product has been intelligently formulated along with these citrus oils to avoid the risk of photosensitivity!

A popularly known skincare ingredient, Vegetable Glycerin has amazing hydrating properties. According to a study4, a cream made from glycerin was found to be more effective in hydrating than those made with Silicone Oil and Hyaluronic Acid.
It is a ‘Water Magnet’ that attracts moisture from the deeper layers of the skin as well as the air, leaving the skin hydrated while bringing back parched and thin skin to its formerly dewy self!
A study5 suggested that this ultra-hydrating ingredient can help improve the barrier function of the skin too, which helps keep moisture locked and prevent any possible loss of hydration.
What’s even more interesting is that the pH level of Vegetable Glycerin matches that of our skin, therefore making it gentle and comfortable on sensitive skin. It is so gentle on the skin that it is a common ingredient in baby skincare too!
Calendula officinalis, commonly known as Pot Marigold, got its name from the Latin word kalendae, which means new moon or the first day of the month. The beautiful yellow flower is said to bloom in full glory only on the first day of the month.
Besides its shy blooming nature, it poses various benefits that help our skin reach its glorious bloom!
Calendula contains flavonoids (multi-active components) that help soften the signs of aging and also soothe the skin. Some recent studies6 have indicated that it promotes skin hydration and the look of firmness.
Each individual Calendula petal contains five compounds—Oleanic Acid, Lupeol, Quercetin, α-Amyrin and β-Amyrin. These efficacious compounds have been studied and are known to have a significant effect on the look of pre-mature aging caused due to environmental aggressors while also soothing skin and discomfort.
Potato Starch Modified is THE ingredient that gives the face mask its body and texture. It offers a thin-gel consistency to the mask which enables it to absorb quickly, feel and appear light weight, and be almost invisible on the skin.
It helps with rapid absorption, which enables the skin reap the benefits of this face masque instantly, in just 3 minutes.
Not only this, but it also helps this face masque act as an excellent emollient, adding that extra dab of hydration and moisture to the skin
Heptyl glucoside is an organic compound derived from sugar and castor seeds. This compound belongs to the class of organic compounds known as fatty acyl glycosides of mono- and disaccharides.
It is also a potent solubilizer, making it possible to mix lipophilic ingredients in water-based formulations.
In addition, this plant-derived compound promotes higher absorption rates for active ingredients like Biosaccharide Gum!

Ayulogica is a scientifically formulated skincare brand.
Based on the principles of Ayurveda where Ayus (Long Life) + Veda (Knowledge or Science) = Knowledge or Science of Longevity in Sanskrit (the ancient language spoken in India by scholars). Ayurveda is a 5,000-year-old medicine considered by many scholars to be the oldest healing science, it originated in India and is more relevant now in our present-day modern life where stress is the new norm.
According to Ayurveda, we can all achieve optimum health if we have a balance between our mind, body, and inner self or soul. As defined by the Global Wellness Institute (GWI), in line with the World Health Organization’s definition of health, wellness is: “a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being.” This is unlike the way modern medicine approach is - Absence of disease equals good health. The root causes of imbalances in our lifestyle that lead to problems later in life, can be addressed by knowing our current state of balance or “vikriti”. If there are any lingering imbalances after removing the root cause, balance can be attained by using opposites. For example, if it is winter season and body is feeling cold, you treat it with warm foods and warm clothes. It is simple approach, yet we are unable to listen to our body ques. We are distracted all the time and this is where Ayurveda comes into place.
There are three distinct energies or dosha – vata, pitta, kapha.
They are the essential building blocks for all forms of life and are composed of the five elements - air, space, water, fire and earth. A combination of these elements makes up the three doshas. Just like we have a unique DNA, we all are born with a unique combination of these elements (or prakriti). Our dosha changes continuously in reference to external factors like the environment we live in, our lifestyle, the food we eat, our social and mental health. This leads to imbalances and health issues. By knowing our current state of health, and following the diet that is right for our dosha, doing the exercises and sleeping at the right time, we can get back to our homeostasis.
Skin is the largest organ! Skin is like a sponge and is affected by our inner health. Stress can affect your whole body, including your skin, hair, and nails. Your emotions have a powerful effect on your skin. Since stress is a part of life, what matters is how you handle it. Stress causes a chemical response in your body that makes skin more sensitive and reactive. It can also make it harder for skin problems to heal.
You may have noticed that when you are stressed, you break out more? This is because stress causes your body to produce cortisol and other hormones, which tells your sebaceous glands to produce more oil. Oily skin is more prone to acne and other skin problems. Part of the problem is our lifestyle that forces us to have a deep disconnect with our bodies, including our skin. We neglect our skin and then cover up our flaws with make-up which leads to more skin issues like clogged pores, acne, rashes, and inflammation. It is imperative that we look after our skin by nourishing it with skin food both externally and internally based on our current mind-body profile or dosha. This is the foundation of Ayulogica – a completely customized approach towards your skincare based on your lifestyle, your current state of mind and body balance. We incorporate adaptogens, like Ashwagandha and Tulsi, that reportedly promote homeostasis, for example by reducing cellular sensitivity and immune suppression. We target towards addressing stress related skin problems using a sustainable approach where less is more and products are multi-tasking for the multi-tasking women and men.
