MBM: For someone who doesn’t know what Ayurveda is, tell us about why it makes Urban Veda the brand to choose?
We battle environmental factors every day. From heating, aircon, traffic exhaust fumes, dust, dirt and even stress. These all negatively affect the health and condition on our skin, our lifestyles can often mirror our complexions. Showing up in dark circles, dull, blemished skin. The natural beauty products brand Urban Veda collection is skincare founded upon natural ingredients and Ayurvedic principles.
We use ancient Ayurvedic wisdom, which Originated 5000 years ago in the Himalayas, to enhance the modern 21st century lifestyle.
Urban Veda has 4 distinct ranges which are specifically designed to care for the skin types associated with the principles of Ayurvedic medicine and your ‘doshas’. A term which describes the physical and emotional tendencies within body and mind.
We don't believe in quick fixes but instead use Ayurvedic herbs, flowers and fruits in our natural beauty products, combined with multi-vitamins and clinically proven actives to maintain a healthy skin at all times. Using free radical fighting, omega rich, antioxidants and fatty acids to keep skin at optimum health at all times.
MBM: What is a Dosha? And why is it relevant to skincare
There are three main body types in Ayurveda, known as doshas. These doshas are Vata, Pitta and Kapha. They express our characteristics, skin type, hair type, health, personality traits and emotions.
