Working with Ayurvedic institutions, the four co-founders of Kama Ayurveda were inspired by this ancient science of healing.
They understood its powers and sought to revive its fortunes with a desire to share their learning with the rest of the world. They created a beautiful collection of ayurvedictreatments, thus helping to preserve an effective form of wellness and the communities it supports
Kama Ayurveda launched with a range of nine ayurvedic treatments, developed in partnership with the 100-year-old Arya Vaidya Pharmacy in Coimbatore, Tamil Nadu.These potent remedies were developed to help treat existing skin and hair concerns and to prevent future concerns.
To complement these treatments, Kama Ayurveda developed ‘Les Jardins D’Inde’, a highly effective ayurveda-inspired range of products, suitable for different hair and skin types.
Passionately focused on the purity of ingredients and efficacy of formulations, all of Kama Ayurveda’s high quality, beautifully packaged products are EU certified, and available internationally. This portfolio of natural products is free of artificial colours, fragrances, parabens, or petrochemicals. Kama Ayurveda is against animal testing.
The Arya Vaidya Pharmacy and Kama Ayurveda work with local forest communities, and small-scale farmers and artisans to source the natural ingredients that lend their purity to Kama Ayurveda products.
Ayurveda was codified into a text called the Charaka Samhita by the legendary physician Charaka in the second century BC. It since travelled with traders and scholars to China, Egypt, Arabia and Europe, laying the foundation for plant-based healing all over the world. Ayurveda expounds a way-of-life, focusing on the balance between mind, body and soul, where true beauty comes from within. It uses fundamental concepts of balance and harmony to assess the inherent disposition individuals are born with, called Prakruti. This in turn is shaped by the governing forces of all Life, or the Doshas. Ayurveda views individuals as a microcosm of nature based on how synchronised the individual’s Doshas are. Doshas in a state of imbalance are believed to be in Vikruti, leading to a weakened immune system and potential disease. The main Doshas are Vata, Pitta, Kapha, present in every living being. They represent the 5 elements (Air, Fire, Earth, Water, Ether) of Nature in different proportions.
Vata Dosha People tend to be ‘airy’ in movement and speech. Creative, sociable, and artistic, they are talkative, well informed and aware, but prone to switching interests and pursuits. Light sleepers, and fast walkers, with fluctuating digestion, and prone to nervousness and anxiety. They enjoy activities involving speed and mobility, but don’t possess long-term endurance or stamina. When balanced: Creative and imaginative, able to stick to a productive routine, joyful, mentally alert, tranquil, patient, and content.
Pitta Dosha People are ‘fiery’. Highly passionate, competitive, and sharp-minded. They are prone to anger, aggression, and jealousy, and impulsiveness, and like to assert their individuality. They are strong-willed, persuasive, perceptive, and discriminating. They are prone to acne, acidity, and dehydration. When balanced: Sharp memory, strong metabolism, ability to keep going without getting ‘burnt out’ too easily, flourishing in leadership positions, ability to influence with strong oratory and action.
Kapha Dosha People are the calmest of the 3, ‘grounded’, and relatively ‘slow moving’. They are tranquil, placid, laid-back, and not easy to irritate. They prefer traditional convention and structure, and the security and sense of organisation they provide. They are prone to depression, lethargy, excessive sleeping, and can suffer from a sluggish digestion and respiratory trouble. When balanced: Calm, reflective, compassionate, spiritual, and nourishing, giving and protective towards others. An understanding of our Doshas can help us make healthy and productive lifestyle decisions so that we can be stronger and more peaceful versions of ourselves.
