Ubtan is a traditional Indian preparation for cleansing and brightening the skin. Ubtans are made out of a variety of ingredients like herbs, flowers, dried roots and leaves. The ingredients are usually ground by hand and mixed with milk, yogurt or rosewater to make a scrub or face pack. Indian brides use ubtans generously before their wedding to get their skin glowing on their wedding day.
The Forest Essentials Tejasvi Ubtan powder contains natural ingredients that deep cleanse and purify the skin, neutralize oil production, even skin tone, retain moisture, tone, nourish and improve the texture of the skin, fight acne and pigmentation, improve the elasticity of the skin, remove dead cells, eliminate fine lines, improve collagen production and add a warm glow to the skin….phew!!!

Half a teaspoon of ubtan powder needs to be mixed with either yogurt (if you have dry skin) or rosewater (for those with oily skin) to make a creamy paste. I sometimes use milk instead of rosewater or curd. I usually apply the paste, leave it on for about 10 mins and then gently massage my face with my fingers moistened with tepid water before washing my face. My skin feels so much softer and clear after this ritual. I love using this product especially in summers because it cools and soothes the skin. It also helps remove tan.
