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 Vegan Beauty
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.
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.

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.

Juniper Fresh Organic Face Wash – $22 for 3.38 fl. oz.
This face wash is made with Juniper essential oil and is supposed to be great for oily skin and sensitive skin. It has chamomile oil too, to help calm it.

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.
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.

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.

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.

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!

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.
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.
