The Best of East and West: Ayurveda meets Science
At Shankara, East does meet West. We blend it together to create a product line that uses the best from both the ancient eastern science of Ayurveda and the western state of the art anti-aging science to create breakthroughs that have never before been achieved.
East: Shankara products are based in Ayurveda, a 5,000-year-old Indian tradition and philosophy based on knowledge of the youth-restoring effects and therapeutic uses of herbs and oils to bring balance to the body, mind and spirit. Ayurveda, “the science of life” is built upon the understanding of the five elements (space, air, fire, water and earth).
When these elements combine they create three governing principles, or doshas. These are Vata (air and space), Pitta (fire with a little water) and Kapha (earth and water). Everything may be categorized according to its proportion of the doshas, including our mind-body (and skin) type. Radiant beauty and health is considered to be an outer reflection of the proper inner balance of the three doshas for our particular constitution.
Shankara BioRegenesis Skin Care System products are designed to maintain balance for your basic Ayurvedic skin type as well as to help correct a temporary imbalance that can result from diet, lifestyle, emotions, mental state or a change in climate. We aspire to help you attain the highest level of beauty…inner beauty, outer beauty and the lasting beauty that is the hallmark of being in a healthy state of balance.
West: 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.
