Ayurvedic Soap and Skincare Products
We all want to feel good in the skin we are in. In Ayurveda, what we put on our bodies matters as much as what we put in them. Tastes, flavors, textures, scents, and even sounds play a vital role. And something as simple as moisturizing your skin and washing your body can become important elements of self-care.
This is why we offer organic Ayurvedic skin care products and Ayurvedic soap—truly clean products that help your skin get clean, nourished, and stay hydrated.
What Is Ayurvedic Soap?
Our Ayurvedic soap offers a clean, natural alternative to commercial bar soap. Starting with a base of organic, GMO-free, and sustainably sourced saponified oils, each bar is infused with the finest ingredients and essential oils.
When we embrace an Ayurvedic lifestyle, we acknowledge that anything can support our health and well-being—even bathing takes on a different importance. We nourish not only our skin, but our senses too—including body and spirit. Science has shown that our sense of smell is directly linked to our emotions, and certain scents offer amazing benefits for our overall health and well-being.
In Ayurvedic terms, the scent profiles of our soaps are created with the doshas and overall wellness in mind. Perhaps one of the most popular herbs for relaxation, lavender is known to calm the mind and body. What better way to end the day than with Banyan’s Lavender Soap made with organic crushed lavender flowers and infused with lavender essential oils? Or how about starting the day with Neem and Aloe Soap infused with the rich, earthy scent of vetiver? Or try our Cedar-Eucalyptus Soap to alleviate stress and impart a sense of joy.

The skin is the largest organ of the body and is fed by many other tissues—blood, fat, nerves, connective fibers like collagen, even our bones as they contain the marrow which makes more blood. This is why, according to Ayurveda, for skin to be at its best, you need to start from the inside out. And this is why it is important to consider the body as a whole when the goal is how to get clear skin. Herbs that are good for skin can help you get there, from supporting clear skin to helping your glow and radiance shine.
Herbs that help purify and detoxify the blood are vital to a healthy complexion. Some of these herbs for skin include neem, manjistha, turmeric, and amalaki. Less well-known in the US is anantamul, the “fragrant one,” which is popular in the Ayurvedic pharmacopeia for its cooling and calming qualities. And hibiscus, a sacred flower often seen in ceremonies, is a very versatile herb that also supports healthy skin.
All of these herbs can be found in Banyan’s skin care formulations. For example, Our Radiant Skin Bundle–which includes Healthy Skin tablets, Soothing Skin Balm, and Neem & Aloe Soap–is an excellent place to start with complementary products that focus on both the internal and external physiology of the skin.
