This brightening facial oil is a classical Ayurvedic formulation that uses the bright orange Kinshuk (also known as palash, tesu or the ‘flame of the forest’) flower-revered in Ayurveda for centuries for its skin soothing properties. Blending the Kinshuk flower with seventeen other precious Ayurvedic herbs gives this glow boosting facial oil. This makes the oil, the perfect product to use if you’re looking to use something safe and effective that works on your skin while you’re asleep. Ayurveda documents the herbs and plants which are being used as glow boosters. Also, these are known to have startling effect on pigmentation, dull and ageing skin and on pimple scars.
What is it made of?
Ayurvedic herbs including sandalwood, vetiver and nagkesar (Indian-rose chestnut) are noted as varanaya dravyas ( complexion enhancers) in the Charak Samita, an ancient Indian Sanskrit text written thousands of years ago.
We cook these and other ayurvedic roots, flowers and plants such as lac, Indian Madder, Mulethi, Vetiver and Himalayan Wild Cherry in cold-pressed sesame oil according to tail-pak vidhi ( the traditional ayurvedic way of oil making) to make the Kimsukadi Tail.
Other ingredients in this oil include Sacred Lotus Flower, Banyan roots, Padma Kesar, Henna, Turmeric root, Indian Sassaparilla and Patang.
Why use it and how is it different than our Elixir Facial Serum?
A serum is a lightweight non-greasy product that isn’t a lotion or a cream. You apply it to your skin after cleansing but before moisturizing. So this product is used just before you use your Just Herbs night cream or night gel. You can use the Elixir during the day as well.
The Kimsukadi Oil on the other hand, has rich texture and is a night treatment Ayurvedic oil. Use Kimsukadi oil specifically at night before bed time after y night cream or gel.
In fact, you can include both the Elixir (day use) and the Kimsukadi Tail (night use) in Just Herbs regime.
Which skin types is it good for?
This product suits all skin types.
Will it make my skin more oily ?
No it won’t. In fact, using a plant rich facial oil such as the Kimsukadi nourishes your skin. Moreover, the unique blend of herbs will also help cut down the over production of oil as your skin will get the oil it needs from the outside so it won’t need to produce oil of its own. In some cases, this may gradually help those with extra oily skin to get their skin’s oiliness to an optimum level.
