Our Philosophy


Nurturing the Beauty in You…Consciously

Shankara delivers an unparalleled experience of nutrition, oxygenation, hydration, and protection with our ground-breaking, natural collection of retail and professional products for face and body. The Shankara Skincare System produces true skin transformation and enhances your authentic beauty.

Our approach is original and holistic, pairing western anti-aging breakthroughs with the eastern science of Ayurveda, the ancient “Science of Life.” Shankara products are created using cold processed, synergistic blends of anti-aging, antioxidant-rich active ingredients, combined with highly nutritive, therapeutic, and aromatherapeutic essential oils. Using a rapid delivery system, the ingredients in our products quickly penetrate surface layers to catalyze real change, delivering almost immediate topical improvement in your skin while products work to balance conditions from within.

All of our products are:

  • free of parabens, alcohol and chemicals
  • pH balanced
  • PETA Approved/cruelty-free; no animal testing.
  • benefiting the world through philanthropy
  • 40 of the 46 retail products were certified vegan by PETA. The other 6 contain honey powder or yogurt or milk protein. Only 3 of the products in our professional line are not vegan because they contain these same highly moisturizing ingredients.

Socially Responsible, Eco-Friendly and Serving a Bigger Purpose

In Sanskrit, the name ‘Shankara’ means, ‘Pure Beauty with Fully Blossomed Consciousness’.100% of Shankara’s net profits fund global non-profit humanitarian projects, implemented by the International Association for Human Values (IAHV.org). We use safe, natural and biodegradable cleaning agents and go great lengths to recycle. We feel that treating the planet well includes treating the people who inhabit it well, so our team is committed to providing impeccable customer service.
