This Kolkata-Based Skincare Brand Has Ayurvedic Products For Beauty, Bath & More
What Makes It Awesome
Urvija promises a real Ayurvedic solution to all your skincare problems and we decided to try out their products. And safe to say, we were not disappointed. Each of the Urvija's products have us hooked, because of how calming and mild they are on application. Their entire range is made out of organic produce, and they take special care to avoid the use of palm oil and beeswax that harm the forests and the ecology. Urvija's range are rich in non timber forest products (NTFP) such has extracts of Mahua, Kusum, Karanj, coconuts and others.
We are specially hung up on their papaya cleanser that has a mild fragrance and a rich creamy texture which doesn't leave your skin feeling dry after a wash. The recently introduced marigold butter is another thing that we are totally crushing on because of its non-greasy texture and the light flowery fragrance that will keep you sniffing yourself.
Their rose and saffron serum is a must try though. Slightly potent in smell, only a few drops of it works well to give that healthy and bright look that this one promises. You can also follow our example and use the serum with some rose water, if you find the it a little too viscous, like we did.
We are slightly picky about shampoos, but have wishlisted their hibiscus shampoo which is good for regular use. You can also check out their lip balms and facial mists to help you tide through the coming summer months.
Good thing, their range is also very affordable and it won't burn a hole in your pocket. Staring from INR 120 (cleansers) the prices go upto INR 950 (serums).
What Could Be Better
They have very limited range of hair products, but they make up with their quality.
You can order their products online or can also pick it up from cafes like Chaiwala (Southern Avenue).
