We are all aware of the amazing benefits that the natural ingredients that go into Ubtan – the traditional Indian beauty paste – offer our skin. Key ingredients like almond, turmeric, saffron, sandalwood oil, rose water and chickpea flour are loaded with antioxidants, vitamins and essential nutrients. These help to refresh dull skin, remove tan, even out complexion, protect from damage and restore skin’s natural suppleness and radiance.
While we love the radiant skin that we get from using Ubtan Body Lotion, but it is not always possible to raid the kitchen to get your hand on all the ingredients, mix them together and make your Ubtan. So, when laziness hits, but you need to get your skin glowing, turn to a specially curated Ubtan facial kit like WOW Skin Science Ubtan Radiance Facial Kit
Why we are obsessed with Ubtan
Simply because our beauty history shows that using Ubtan – a paste made with herbs, oils, natural powders and extracts – was the most important beauty ritual of the Indian queens, courtesans, ladies and brides of yore. In the olden days, applying ubtan was ritualistic. Auspicious events always had bathing rituals with specially made ubtans – be it a bridal bath or baby shower or religious ceremony. Even today, using ubtan for skin and body remains an exotic beauty care experience that is meant to revive mind and body.
