One of Ayurveda’s most famous gifts has been the Kumkumadi Oil, which has an unparalleled ability to address skincare issues and to allow the skin’s natural radiance to shine through. The name Kumkumadi comes from its key ingredient Red-gold saffron, known as Kumkuma in Sanskrit. Considered to be a miracle skin tonic, this oil works wonders to nourish, moisturize and brighten the skin. In ancient times, it was said that massaging your face with Kumkumadi Oil will make your face glow like gold.

Yes, Timeless Kumkumadi Oil is suitable for oily skin. We do recommend, however, that you not overuse the oil if you have oily skin. Our recommendation is to reduce the amount to 1-2 drops of oil per application.
Kumkumadi Oil is an all-natural moisturizer that uses sesame oil as its base oil. Itís Vata-pacifying nature enables it to balance dry and rough skin. If you have dry, Vata-skin, you can increase the amount to 4-5 drops per application.
Timeless Kumkumadi Oil is suitable for acneic skin. However, depending upon the severity of your acne, we would recommend that you explore our award-winning Clear Skin Kit for optimal results.
If you have sensitive skin, we recommend that you use our Timeless Kumkumadi Oil with our Anti-age Serum.
Most creams have some form of natural or synthetic wax in them, which prevents oil from being absorbed in order to achieve the maximum benefits. We would recommend that you use the Kumkumadi oil by itself, or apply our Anti-Ageserum or Daily Repair Serum prior to applying the Kumkumadi oil.
Most Kumkumadi Oils on the market should not be used during the day-time. However, we have enhanced the formula to make it suitable for use even during the day-time.
You will start seeing results with regular application in a period as short as three weeks.
We recommend cleansing your skin with Hydrating Cleanser (for Vata and Pitta Skin) and Purifying Cleanser (for Kapha Skin). You may also apply after Daily Repair Serum or Anti-Age Serum if desired.
