Shankara is a globally recognised Ayurvedic brand that has received over 20 international awards and has established a solid presence in 30 countries. The brand’s heritage is firmly rooted in ancient healing and well-being practices originating from the Vedic culture. Their dedication to preserving these age-old traditions while integrating modern science into them is embodied in their unique Gheesutrā range.
Gheesutrā, as the name suggests, is a range focused on the magical potential of ghee. Whether you consume it or apply it topically, ghee is an ingredient one must add to their self-care routine. Shankara’s Gheesutrā Face Emulsion, Gheesutrā Nourishing Exfoliator and Gheesutrā Hand & Foot Cream are all formulated using 100 times washed A2 Ghee that nourishes and hydrates the skin. This ingredient also protects the skin’s barrier while healing and repairing it.
Karishma Kapoor believes that true radiance comes from within and says, “I believe in holistic beauty and that’s why I start my mornings with a spoonful of ghee and let Gheesutrā be the first touch on my skin. Gheesutrā isn’t just a skincare, it’s a ritual that celebrates our natural beauty because when you are comfortable in your skin you radiate confidence.”
So, it’s safe to say that our grandparents were right when they suggested we use ghee instead of other beauty remedies! Here’s taking a look at all the ways Shankara has infused this nourishing ingredient into their products-
Gheesutrā Face Emulsion
The Gheesutrā Face Emulsion is the first A2 ghee-based emulsion infused with vitamin C. It is formulated using skin-loving ingredients like 100 times washed ghee, hibiscus, and blue-pea. What truly makes Shankara special is its unwavering commitment to sustainability and ethical sourcing–every ingredient is sourced from local farmers, supporting their livelihoods and reducing the brand’s carbon footprint.
Shata Dhauta Ghrita, an emollient of 100 times washed Ghee, lies at the core of this product and penetrates deep into the skin’s seventh layer. The ghee is washed in a copper vessel that exposes the ghee to purified water and copper particles. This reduces its granular size and increases its moisture levels with each wash. It is also a rich source of omega-3, 9 fatty acids, vitamins A, D, E, and K.
The Gheesutrā Face Emulsion also has a unique blend of hibiscus and vitamin C. While the former tightens pores, evens skin tone and deeply hydrates the skin, the latter shields the skin from sun damage, lightens pigmentation and combats signs of ageing. In all, this emulsion leaves the skin feeling supple with each application.
Gheesutrā Nourishing Exfoliator
Shankara’s Gheesutrā Nourishing Exfoliator is a gentle facial scrub enriched with effective beauty ingredients like 100 times washed ghee, sweet almonds, and silica crystals. This potent blend cleanses, hydrates and rejuvenates the skin, leaving it looking radiant.
While the finely ground sweet almond particles provide gentle exfoliation and restore the skin’s youthful appearance, the Silica crystals remove dead skin cells and improve the texture of the skin. These ingredients together work at reducing the appearance of fine lines and restoring the skin’s natural radiance.
So if you’re looking to deeply cleanse the skin, remove impurities and unclog pores, the Gheesutrā Nourishing Exfoliator is your best bet.
Gheesutrā Hand & Foot Cream
Gheesutrā’s commitment to overall well-being extends to their Gheesutrā Hand & Foot Cream. This hydrating union of washed ghee, moringa leaves and bamboo extract leaves the hands and legs feeling as soft as satin. The potion also works at improving the skin’s barrier to ensure moisture retention even after constant washing.
The washed ghee is abundant in fatty acids and thus deeply moisturises, nourishes and rejuvenates the skin with essential vitamins like A, E, and D. The moringa is rich in nutrients and does it all–enhances skin hydration, cellular rejuvenation, collagen synthesis and wound healing. The bamboo extract has a high silica content that helps maintain the skin’s optimal hydration level, thus leaving it feeling soft and supple.
And if this doesn’t already sound appealing to you, the Gheesutrā Hand & Foot Cream also has a lingering subtle fragrance to put you in a relaxing mood.
With consumers extending their interests towards Ayurvedic and natural products, Shankara is a pioneering brand to be on the lookout for. So discover the healing and rejuvenating effects of Gheesutrā and immerse yourself in the luxury of holistic well-being.
