‘underground skin treatments – pass it on’
Using the best active skin care ingredients and ayurvedic oils, herbs and concepts we produce what we think are the best skin care secrets in the world.
The products are proven by scientific research and real life testing. Because of complex and hugely expensive legislation regarding the production of cosmetics we have chosen not to market our range in retail outlets, this is a conscious choice.
We are a small Ayurvedic Clinic in the UK and we make all the products by hand, mixing and adding ingredients that have been prepared by a qualified and experienced cosmetic chemist to bring you products that we believe do what we say they do. You cannot buy any of our products in shops; we mix the actives in our Ayurveda Clinic in Cheshire and supply to individuals, by word of mouth, invitation (party plan) or the internet. We do not sell our products in expensive; double skin packaging to give the illusion of more contents, we buy simple but attractive containers that show you what you get.
We use the most effective ingredients for skin rejuvenation and care. Our products contain many of the same expensive active ingredients that are found in incredibly high priced well known skin care products. We don’t spend money on making our packing fancy or charging you for advertising. We keep our prices sensible and honest and rely on the results you get that will keep you as a long term valuable client.
Most of our clients trust what we put into our products and we do not give ingredients list unless you specifically require one. ( you can read them in the descriptions below) You are responsible for trying the products in a sensible way, by using a small amount or doing a patch test to ensure that you do not have an adverse reaction to any of the actives, this is very rare, what does happen is that the skin begins to tingle and glow as the active ingredients get to work on the skin.
We encourage you to contact us to discuss your requirements, or try some of our basic range below. These products are very effective and used correctly will enhance skin tone, reduce wrinkles, provide lift and help your skin to improve.
