Today I’m happy to introduce Ayushi vegan beauty to you. Ayushi is a cruelty free and vegan beauty brand that has created Ayurvedic products. Ayurveda means life-knowledge and Ayurvedic products are derived from the uses of herbal medicines and supplements. These are made with natural, organic, paraben-free, phthalate-free, gmo-free ingredients. They contain no dyes or synthetic fragrances. These products are made in the lush farms of Kerala, India. They are PETA certified and suitable for all skin types.

Ayushi is the first company in the personal care industry to be the official sponsors of the Organic Farmers Association (NOFA) and they helped to raise over $15,000 for organic farmers in 2014.

The packaging itself for all products is clear so you can see the product inside. I like that the labels are sleek, white, and the information is easy to read. They tell you how to use the products, the ingredients listing for each item, and who to contact for more information. Ayushi uses minimal, organic ingredients to create their skincare products, which I think makes them ideal for sensitive skin.

 

Ayushi Vegan Paper Soap - Phyrra.net

Paper Soap – $2 (30 count)
Ayushi offers paper soap that you can toss in your purse and take with you, perfect for travel or to freshen up. They come in 4 scents and I received Aloe Vera and Country Rose to try. Both have a soft, soapy scent and feel slightly moisturizing. Country Rose has a barely discernible (to me) hint of rose. It’s nice and not overpowering.

One thing I really love about the Ayushi products are that they have their manufacture date clearly printed on the packaging and they tell you the ‘best by’ information so you know when the product is expired. I wish all products did this! This is really awesome!

Sandal Spice Organic Face Wash – $22 for 3.38 fl. oz.
Of the 3 face washes I received, this was Ray’s favorite because he loves sandalwood. I really like the scent, too. It gently cleanses and it has anti-aging properties. The sunflower oil is supposed to help remove free radicals and retain the skin’s elasticity.

Ingredients
Coconut Oil, Sunflower Oil, Sesame Oil, Wheat Germ Oil, Jojoba Oil,Organic Extract of Aloe Vera, Organic Essential Oils of Sandal, Cedar Wood, Demineralized Water, Caustic Lye, Veg. Glycerine

Rose Garden Organic Face Wash – $22 for 3.38 fl. oz.
This face wash would be good for those who suffer from acne because of its anti-inflammatory and astringent properties. I really like this and it’s gentle on my sensitive skin.

Ingredients
Organic Oils of Coconut Oil, Corn Oil, Sunflower Oil and Castor Oil, Organic Essential Oils of Country Rose and Sandal, IFRA Certified Rose Fragrance, Demineralized Water, Caustic Lye, Veg. Glycerine

Juniper Fresh Organic Face Wash – $22 for 3.38 fl. oz.

There is also a Shangrila Neem Basil Organic Face Wash (has lavender), and Lemon Blossom Organic Face Wash are two other face washes offered by Ayushi.

You may notice that with some these beauty products, since they contain natural oils like coconut oil or cocoa butter, they will somewhat solidify at room temperature. If this happens, don’t panic! All you need to do is put it under warm tap water briefly and then shake well.

Ayushi Pre-Conditioner and Shampoo Hair Products - Phyrra.net

Ceder Spark Pre-Shampoo Conditioner – $15 for 3.38 oz.
The item that I was most intrigued by from Ayushi is the pre-shampoo conditioner. You simply wet your hair and massage this into your hair before you wash. It’s filled with my favorite oils – coconut and avocado oil, plus shea butter. It also has sunflower and olive oil in it, too.

I only wash my hair once a week, give or take. This does add on to my shower time, but I think I like the pre-shampoo conditioning step. It had a very light scent.

Ingredients
Butters: Coconut [Cocos nucifera], Avocado [Persea Gratissima], Shea [Vitellaria paradoxa]; Organic Oils: Corn [Zea mays], Sunflower [Helianthus annuus], Olive [Olea europaea], Neem [Azadirachta indica], Brahmi [Indian pennywort)], Bringaraj [Eclipta alba], Nut grass [Cypreus Rotandus]; Extracts: Amla [Phyllanthus emblica], Henna [Lawsonia Inermis].

Summer Herbal Shampoo – $18 for 6.76 oz.
This is a sulfate free shampoo that has a pleasing, clean scent. Since I only use sulfate-free shampoo on my hair, I’m a fan of how this sudsed up and cleansed my hair. It’s made with coconut, bermuda grass and wheat protein to help strengthen hair and give it shine. It did a really nice job of getting my hair clean and smelled slightly herbal / mediciney, and the scent didn’t linger.

Ingredients
Demineralized Aqua, Disodium Laureth Sulfosuccinate, Cocamidopropyl Betaina, Alpha Olefin Sulphonate, Disodium Cocoamphodiacetate Laurydimonium, Hydroxypropyl, Hydrolyzed Wheat Protein, Sodium Cocoyl Glutamate, Cynodon Dactylon, Ascorbic Acid

Harmony Shampoo – $16 for 6.76 fl. oz.
Ayushi has another sulfate free shampoo made specifically for chemically treated hair. It’s made from coconut milk, cucumber and sunflower oil.

Ingredients
Coconut Milk, Cucumber Extract, Vit E, Sunflower Oil with Cocomono Ethanolamide, Coco Diethonolamide, Alpha Olefin Sulfonate, Glycerine, Citric Acid and Demineralized Water.

Ayushi Body Wash and Lotion - Phyrra.net

Country Rose Organic Body Wash – $15 for 6.76 fl. oz.
This body wash is chock full of antioxidants. It’s moisturizing and it has a very soft rose scent. I would have liked it if this had sudsed up more, but it did have a nice soft rose scent.

Ingredients
Organic Coconut Oil, Organic Olive Oil, Organic Corn Oil, Organic Sunflower Oil, Shea Butter, Organic Aloe Vera, Vit – E Oil, Veg Glycerin, Demineralized Water, Caustic Lye, Blended Organic Essential Oils Of Rose, Sandal, Cedar Wood.

Ayushi also offers a Desire Sandal scent and White Lotus scent.

Vegan Shine Hand and Foot Care Organic Lotion – $19 for 3.38 oz
This is a very light lotion that absorbs pretty quickly and smells slightly minty, I’m guessing from the Myrrh. I never knew I would like myrrh, but I do!

Ingredients
Apricot Oil, Aloe Vera, Coconut Oil,Corn Oil, Avocado Oil, Vitamin E, Vegetable Glycerine, Soya Lecithin, Natural Borax, Sesame Wax, Rose Hydrosol, Essential Oil Of Geranium, Ylang Ylang, Myrrh.

Ayushi Organic Aloe Vera Gel - Phyrra.net

Organic Aloe Vera Gel – $12 for 3.5 oz
Aloe Vera is used for its anti-inflammatory properties and healing properties. It’s soothing. You can use it for itch relief, burn relief, as a scalp soother, and skin moisturizer. This is the best type of aloe to find – pure, without a bunch of extra additives or coloring.

Ingredients
Aloe Vera pulp/juice with Lemon.

I was very impressed with the products that I tried from Ayushi. I like the simple packaging with clear, easy to read ingredients. I love that the products are cruelty free, vegan and organic. I really liked the pre-conditioner and shampoo. I feel like they did a really nice job of cleansing my hair without making it feel stripped or rough. The paper soaps are nice to toss in your purse and take with you.

What really surprised me is that they’re very affordable, considering the quality of the ingredients. Many of you will love that they are paraben free and pthalate free, too! I like that my favorite ingredients like coconut oil, avocado oil, shea butter,  sunflower oil, and jojoba oil are in these products. I think it’s amazing that they’re handmade with fresh ingredients.

  • Love the ingredients, and agree with you about the easy to read ingredient list!

  • I love the sound of these products. So many say that they are colour/scent free when they are really not. Having sensitive skin and scalp – I use sulphate free shampoos as well. I have very oily hair so these would really work on me. Thank you so much for introducing these products to us. Love the packaging and I really like to see what I am buying.

  • All of these products sound amazing, but that Juniper face wash sounds so refreshing! 🙂

  • I love that these are natural and cruelty-free, and, more importantly, effective. Kerala is my hometown but I’ve never heard of this brand LOL.

  • I really like the paper soap idea, but I’m not sold on the brand as a whole. The face wash is a cold process soap, which has an awfully high (i.e. alkaline) pH to use on the face. I would be concerned about disrupting the acid mantle of the skin.

    I also notice that the ingredient lists for non-soap products seem to be short on preservatives. I hope that the products were challenge tested to ensure that they won’t support microbial growth, but there is no way to be sure that they were.

    I also notice that the ingredient lists do not follow FDA regulations, which require INCI names for each ingredient. Names like “Vit E” and “Veg Glycerin” are not INCI nomenclature.

    But perhaps most bothersome, at least one product appears to be a mislabeled drug; that is, the packaging makes a claim that would appear to fall under the FDA’s definition of a drug (“articles intended for use in the diagnosis, cure, mitigation, treatment, or prevention of disease”). The Aloe Vera gel package clearly states that it “Heals infections and inflammation”, which sounds to me like a claim to treat disease. Making that claim requires going through FDA drug approval process (like a sunscreen) and listing the percentage of active ingredients.

    I’m concerned that this company may not have done its due diligence in introducing products to the U.S. market and would be hesitant to try them given what I just noted.

    • That’s what I like about this product that they have an expiry date and avoiding preservatives is a great bold move. Especially with how phthalates and parabans are proven to be carcinogenic.
      Aloe Vera is used for inflammations as a home remedy,but they didn’t specifically mention any disease per se. I wouldn’t worry about that.

      • I respectfully disagree.

        It may be nice to include an expiration date, but there is no way to know if it is reliable or not. There is no regulation on how such dates are determined (although this company does not appear to follow regulations anyway…), so you have no assurance at all that the product will actually keep for the time specified. Using a broad spectrum preservative *in addition to* providing an expiration date seems, to me, better than using the former as a substitute for the latter.

        As for your statements about phthalates and parabens, while I am aware of a consumer movement against these chemicals, I disagree that either have been “proven to be carcinogenic”. First of all, phthlates are plasticizers so they don’t have anything to do with preservatives, but like parabens (which are preservatives) they have not been proven to be carcinogenic. This isn’t even an especially controversial point with regards to parabens, as it is their possible role as an endocrine disruptor — not a carcinogen — that has been debated. Indeed, the US, EU, and Canada continue to allow most parabens in cosmetics. The much-touted EU paraben ban didn’t even ban the two most common parabens (butyl- and propyl-), nor did it follow the recommendations of EU scientists, who reported in 2013 that the levels of parabens in consumer products were unlikely to cause health problems (http://ec.europa.eu/health/scientific_committees/consumer_safety/docs/sccs_o_132.pdf).

        Again, I know that there is ideological opposition to parabens, that there are people who are not convinced by the existing scientific evidence, and that there are people who feel that the lack of total consensus on parabens calls for a conservative approach, but saying that parabens have been “proven” to cause cancer (or endocrine disruption) is just not accurate. (Sadly, it has even been pointed out [http://ec.europa.eu/health/scientific_committees/consumer_safety/docs/sccs_s_009.pdf] that that the EU’s ban on animal testing may slow the evaluation of whether or not parabens are endocrine disruptors.)

        Finally, while reducing inflammation might be considered a cosmetic effect, I was drawing more attention to the first part of the claim: “Healing infections”. Infections are definitely a form of disease and healing one would seem to qualify as a “cure, mitigation, [or] treatment”. Personally, I support laws that prevent people from marketing a product as being able to heal an infection unless they can actually demonstrate that their product can cure infections.

  • I love rose and sandalwood scents so the cleansers really appeal to me, as do the body washes. Sounds like a wonderful brand.

  • I love the idea of that paper soap. Most public bathrooms have soap that make my skin feel itchy and dry and I hate the idea of overusing antibacterial hand sanitizer. The rose body wash is also on my wish list now. I agree it is great that they list the made on and the expiration date. The prices are also perfect!

    Do you remember where you brought the rose and butterfly box?
