WOW Skin Science Ubtan range offers all the benefits of traditional ubtan in modern packaging with tremendous ease of use. We all know that ubtan is integral to traditional Indian skincare. Here’s a look at what exactly makes an ubtan and how it does wonders for the skin.
Ubtan (Sanskrit word: ubvartan) is a paste that’s applied to face and other body parts as a beauty ritual. This paste is applied on skin, left for a while, and then washed off. An ubtan is much more than a simple face/skin pack. It works as a cleanser, detoxifier, scrub, softener and polish for the skin. Regular ubtan application also helps remove fine hair from skin’s surface.
Ubtan as tradition
Applying ubtan is a millennia-old tradition dating back to Vedic times that’s counted among the solah singar (16 essential beauty steps for women) recommended in Ayurveda. Queens and royal ladies of yore used to apply ubtans as an essential part of their beauty regimen.
The ubtan is also an essential pre-wedding ritual (called haldi) where a turmeric-based ubtan is applied to the bride and the groom to get them ready for the marriage ceremony.
What goes into an Ubtan?
There are hundreds of ubtan recipes that are often closely guarded family secrets. However; chickpea flour (besan), turmeric (haldi) and rosewater are some of the most used ingredients in a very basic ubtan recipe. Depending on their affordability and knowledge, people also add more expensive ingredients like saffron (kesar), sandal (chandan), and almond (badaam).
Some key ubtan ingredients in WOW Skin Science Ubtan range (and their amazing skin benefits)
