How about the FIRM support of your grandson’s arm behind your shoulders when you’re trying to get out of bed after an injury?

"The first time I used it I knew I had found my forever cream! Not enough words to describe how in love with this I'm in. When a lady finally finds "the perfect product" she needs to stick with it and I have! People even have noticed a difference in the wrinkles. They've basically disappeared compared to before I started using this product! Should be able to have a 10 star rating!"

- V. Prakash, about Calendula Horse Chestnut Firming Crème
Extract from the horse chestnut seed is a popular dietary supplement. Its use in a calming formula for sensitive skin makes sense, with an almost Eureka effect on those already familiar with this herb.
In this skincare formulation, this herb helps soothe the skin and boost firmness. It has an overall impact on the health of the complexion.
This gentle flower extract promotes a pure, clean, clear complexion, calms the skin deeply and keeps the skin’s mantle soft and smooth.
It also has the ability to boost hydration, thereby promoting a more toned, youthful appearance.
Quinoa is a common protein-rich food that’s also rich in Vitamin B.
The high concentration of starches and beta-glucans in quinoa are responsible for its protective and water-holding functions. The hydration of the skin is one of the most important agents involved in preserving the integrity of the stratum corneum barrier. Oatmeal is a good option for moisturizing dry or sensitive skin.
Additionally helps in enhancing the complexion.
Oats are now well-known for being an ingredient of repute for moisturizing formulations in skincare due to their ability to form a protective film which imparts protection and moisturization. Oat peptides have the ability to penetrate the cortex with only a single application.
Oat peptide (Avena sativa) is a multi-functional extract of oat with a variety of applications in skin care and hair care. The product is a good alternative for hydrolyzed proteins such as wheat. Oats soothe, firm and moisturize the skin deeply and are perfect for use for sensitive skin. This form of protein also helps you flaunt skin that looks revived, replenished, repaired.
High up in the heights of the Himalayas, grows yet another treasure that makes up for the harsh, dry and cold environments of high altitudes – Dhatelo – the oil of which is an excellent remedy for dry, dehydrated, aging skin.
An unknown wonder in the western world, Dhatelo oil is obtained from the seeds of fruits that grow on a deciduous shrub, native to the Himalayan Mountains in Nepal. This wild, rare remedy works wonders for users and also forms an enabling source of income for local families in the villages of Nepal.
From the heights of the Himalayas, this oil has a remarkable lipid profile that mimics our skin’s lipid profile and delivers the benefits of perfect-appearing skin with nourishment, barrier moisturization and dermo-purification. What’s even more special about this oil is that it is light and not claustrophobically intense when it comes to thickness and stickiness.
Combined with Hydrolyzed Jojoba Esters, a wonderful texture is obtained that really mimics human skin and helps give the skin body and softness.
In addition to these 5, this formula also contains Biosaccharide Gum-1, a moisturizing and skin soothing polysaccharide made by fermenting plants. It works by binding water to the epidermis and creating a moisture-binding film on the skin that gives the skin a soft, smooth feeling.
“So, I have a bad family history of sensitive skin problems. Tried it after hearing by word of mouth and glad I did. This is probably the best product I have tried. Even at my age (am in my 20’s, male) I feel the tightening and see the brightening. Now after a few months I have my confidence back at work. I don’t care if you have to increase price (hope you don’t do that) but please, please don’t change how you make it.”

- Lynnette J. Caston, about Rose Sesame Firming Masque
"I bought this mask upon recommendation of a friend for my combination skin. After just one application of this mask, my skin tone looked 10 times brighter and I felt firmer and tight.

- Maya, about Rose Sesame Firming Masque
The humble rose is often mistakenly dismissed as merely an aromatic flower, but the truth is, both modern science and 5000-year-old Ayurveda acknowledge its powerful benefits when it comes to skincare. It is known to make the skin firmer, smoother, more moisturized. In this formula, 2 forms of rose are used:
Rose Flower Distillate as well as Rose Flower Essential Oil, one of the most expensive essential oils in the world has been used in this formula for the youth-boosting benefits of this true beauty flower.
Sandalwood is the world’s second costliest wood, after African Blackwood, and is sought after worldwide for its aromatic as well as therapeutic activities. In Ayurveda, Sandalwood is prized for its Pitta-soothing properties which means that it has deeply calming effects. Not only that, Sandalwood also aids in keeping the complexion even-toned and brightened.
Gluconolactone is a PHA that helps hydrate as well as exfoliate the skin. Just like the famous AHAs and BHAs, ‘PHA’s or Poly-Hydroxy acids are another set of acids used in skincare that are much more suitable for sensitive skin. Unlike the other popular acids, these are more gentle and suitable for daily use. Gluconolactone does not irritate and yet effectively exfoliates the skin.
Additionally, Gluconolactone is also a humectant and hence draws the moisture in and keeps it locked in your skin.

1) 1,4-Dioxane (found in shampoos, cleansers and things that sud): It is generated through a process called ethoxylation, in which ethylene oxide, a known breast carcinogen, is added to other chemicals to make them less harsh) and maybe disguised in the form of Sodium laureth sulfate, PEG compounds, chemicals that include the clauses xynol, ceteareth and oleth.
2) Octinoxate (the most common sunscreens found in the market contain this chemical which is a known carcinogen and a UV filter): It can be absorbed rapidly through skin. Octinoxate has been detected in human urine, blood and breast milk, which indicates that humans are systemically exposed to this compound which is an endocrine disruptor that mimics estrogen and can disrupt thyroid function. It is also found in hair color products and shampoos, lipstick, chap stick, nail polish, and skin creams. Octinoxate increases cellular proliferation that grow in response to estrogen exposure which over a long period has been linked to the development and progression of breast cancer.
3) Formaldehyde and formaldehyde-releasing preservatives (found in nail polish, nail glue, eyelash glue, hair gel, hair-smoothing products, baby shampoo, body soap, body wash, color cosmetics): In personal care products, formaldehyde can be added directly, or more often, it can be released from preservatives such as quaternium-15, DMDM hydantoin, imidazolidinyl urea, diazolidinyl urea, polyoxymethylene urea, sodium hydroxymethylglycinate, bromopol and glyoxal. Formaldehyde is considered a known human carcinogen by many expert and government bodies, including the United States National Toxicology Program and the International Agency for Research on Cancer.
4) Phthalates (found in Color cosmetics, fragranced lotions, body washes and hair care products, and nail polish): they have the potential health concern towards endocrine disruption, developmental and reproductive toxicity, and cancer. They can be found as phthalate, DEP, DBP, DEHP and fragrance.
5) Para-phenylenediamine (found in hair dyes): Consumers are primarily exposed to pphenylenediamine (PPD) through its use in permanent hair dyes that rely on chemical reactions (called oxidation) to fix the color where it is found in concentrations of about 4 percent and is a known skin sensitizer, carcinogen and for organ system toxicity.
6) Some other popular toxic ingredients are parabens, triclosan (found in anti-bacterial soaps), benzoyl peroxide (found in acne products), coal tar, and aluminum salts, and talc). What is important as a take home message is that we need to understand that our skin is a sponge and will absorb anything. Look out for these potential harmful ingredients and avoid using products that will only do damage.
Ayulogica is a modern, scientific skincare brand that’s not only formulated using Ayurvedic ingredients but also uses principles of Ayurveda in the way the products are designed and how they address different skincare needs.
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 life-science or the science of wellness 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 the body is feeling cold, you treat it with warm foods and warm clothes. It is a simple approach, yet we are unable to listen to our body’s 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. It is cruelty-free, vegan and gluten-free.
