I've been using the Krya ubtan for my now 8 month old daughter. I must say that we love it so much! Her skin is clean soft and smooth and it also smells so good! In fact visitors who carry her often ask which 'soap' we use when they get a whiff of the earthy fragrance. plus it is made with such organic and wholesome ingredients.
I am deeply grateful to the Krya team for making such a lovely product available so conveniently! I used to make home made ubtans for my elder son when he was an infant as we couldn't trust anything to be natural as it claimed, and he had very dry skin especially in winter. now thanks to krya I can use something so good without the fear of adding any chemicals on my daughter since she was born. Plus it also leaves her skin so soft and fragrant.
Thanks a million ! “ DK
Why your baby’s skin and hair system is so vulnerable:
Human skin is the largest sense organ in our body. It is considered the seat of the Indriyas / sense organs and is literally the seat of sight, sense, touch, feeling and hearing. It is our first barrier layer and helps protect our internal organs from damage and bacteria. It is a marvel of bio engineering and hosts a massive colony of micro organisms which work along with us to ensure a constant pH of 5.5, with an acidic mantle that keeps harmful organisms away from us.
The skin and hair structure in children is one of the last major systems to be formed. This along with the sweating mechanism is only fully developed when a child reaches the age of three. This makes children’s skin and hair especially vulnerable and prone to quick damage, which therefore makes their internal organ systems also easy to damage as their barrier function is still not properly developed.
A study by the campaign for Safe Cosmetics examined baby and children’s products for the presence of 2 probable human carcinogens – 1,4 dioxane and formaldehyde. Both of these are not put in intentionally by manufacturers, but are toxic by products that are formed because of the presence of other chemicals in these products. The research study showed that over 61% of the baby products surveyed (across leading brands), contained these 2 chemicals in more than trace quantities.
The Krya difference for your baby
If you are concerned about the toxic load on your child’s vulnerable skin and hair system, you could do no better than trying out Krya’s consumer-loved, all natural, authentic baby products. We strictly follow the principles of herb selection, safety, natural goodness and processing standards laid down by Ayurveda and Siddha to formulate, test and safely manufacture our baby products (and all of our other products).
Our baby products are extremely unique and have been loved by discerning mothers and fathers ever since we launched.
Krya’s range of cleansing products for baby’s skin and hair:
Our range of cleansing products for baby’s skin and hair are formulated using only organically grown lentils and grains like Himalayan adzuki bean, Heritage Mung Bean, Heritage varieties of rice like Rajmudi and Kala bhat, and carefully selected forest collected herbs like Manjishta (Indian Madder), Mulethi (Indian Liquorice), Tree Turmeric and a special set of shade-dried, aromatic flowers like Himalayan Chamomile, and the Indian Rose. Every single ingredient is handpicked, carefully cleaned, sorted, shade dried and mindfully manufactured to give you a gentle, soothing cleanser that cleans without irritating or robbing tender skin of its acid mantle or barrier function.
Our range of skin cleansers come with a traditional twist: you could either choose a unisex baby bodywash or go for one of our ubtans. We have different types of ubtans for young ladies and young gentlemen – the difference lies in the selection of herbs used. The ubtan for baby girls contains a slightly different mixture of herbs that are traditionally used to bring down hair growth on the body.
Our baby hair wash is a wonderful natural alternative to synthetic Sulphate filled shampoo. Our formulation uses the gentle cleansing properties of lentils and a few hair friendly herbs to cleanse baby’s scalp and hair WITHOUT upsetting the natural oil balance or damaging hair’s cuticular structure.
Our cleansers are made using WHOLE ingredients: whole grains, whole lentils and whole herbs. Every single ingredient comes directly from a plant and not a factory. We use no extracts, sulphates, parabens, phthalates, thickeners, fillers, colours, artificial fragrances or anything synthetic in our products. This makes our cleanser range the safest, gentlest and most non toxic and planet friendly choice you could make for your baby.
Krya’s range of authentic Ayurvedic oils for baby’s skin and hair:
Krya’s range of skin and hair oils for baby have been appreciated from launch for their authenticity, formulation and process integrity followed and for their universally good and nutritional effects on skin and hair.
Our oils are made using only cold pressed organic base oils like coconut, sesame, apricot, kokum butter and tamanu oil. A careful mixture of fresh herb juices, fruit and vegetable juices and herb decoctions are added to the base oils and the blend is processed gently by hand until we get a herb enriched, authentic oil. Each batch of oil we make takes s upto 9 hours of gentle manual stirring and processing! The final herb enriched oil we obtain contains all the properties of the herbs, fruits and vegetables that have been added it along with the basic goodness of the base oils themselves.
The Krya baby hair oil follows strict Ayurvedic principles and uses hair growth enhancing herbs like Bhringaraj and also contains herbs like Brahmi which are recommended to be added to hair products for babies and children to aid brain development and memory. This is a much better and natural alternative to liquid paraffin based commercial baby hair oils.
We have 3 skin massage oils for baby. Our traditional baby massage oil aids baby’s strength and growth and uses powerful Ayurvedic herbs like Vacha and Ashwagandha which are recommended to support children’s healthy growth. In addition we have 2 nourishing skin oils that are extremely beneficial for skin and help retain and support the healthy functioning of skin.
The Ayurvedic cleansing routine for baby:
Krya recommends the Ayurvedic cleansing routine for baby. In this routine there is no use of a post bath synthetic lotion of cream. Instead Ayurveda recommends a good massage for baby everyday pre-bath using herb enriched oil, followed by a cleansing and soothing bath using a careful combination of grains, lentils and herbs. The Ayurvedic practice of a daily oil massage aids cognitive development, muscle tone, skin and joint health, aids elimination and improves the mother baby bond. Through this practice dry skin is also eliminated and sound sleep is achieved as a result.
The use of a non soap based grain and lentil and herb based bath using a Krya baby ubtan or Krya baby bodywash is also a well studied traditional practice recommended by Siddha and Ayurveda. This special cleansing mixture cleans without altering skin’s acid mantle, cleanses deeply, activates skin and helps its healthy functioning and removes toxins from baby’s body without irritating or altering baby’s skin in anyway.
