Getting Back to Basics with Kalaia

Getting Back to Basics with Kalaia

Ayurvedic medicine is a traditional system of healthcare that originated in India and has been practiced for thousands of years. It is based on the belief that health and wellness depend on a balance between the body, mind, and spirit, and that this balance can be achieved by following certain principles and practices, such as a healthy diet, exercise, and the use of natural remedies.

In the context of skincare, Ayurvedic medicine can be useful because it focuses on using natural ingredients that have been studied and used for thousands of years and proven to have medicinal properties.

At Kalaia, these ingredients are plant-based and are used to treat a variety of skin conditions, such as acne, dryness, and inflammation.

Some of the benefits of using Ayurvedic skincare products include:

  • Gentle and nourishing: Ayurvedic ingredients are generally gentle on the skin and are less likely to cause irritation or dryness. They are also nourishing and can help to maintain the skin's natural balance.
  • Natural and safe: Ayurvedic ingredients are derived from natural sources, such as plants, minerals, and herbs, and are generally considered to be safe for use on the skin.
  • Customizable: Ayurvedic skincare routines can be customized to suit an individual's specific skin type and concerns. This can make them more effective in addressing specific skin issues.
  • Holistic approach: Ayurvedic skincare takes a holistic approach to health and wellness, focusing on the body as a whole rather than just the skin. This can help to promote overall health and well-being.

With this approach providing the foundation to Kalaia products, we are going back to basics in 2023 with the Basic Kit. This kit includes:

Some of the incredible superfoods and Ayurvedic ingredients in this set include:


Turmeric has several properties that make it beneficial for the skin. It is a natural anti-inflammatory, which can help reduce redness and irritation. It is also an antioxidant, which means it can help protect the skin from damage caused by free radicals. Additionally, turmeric has been shown to have antibacterial properties, which may be helpful in preventing and treating acne. Some people also find that turmeric can help improve the overall appearance of their skin, giving it a brighter and more youthful look.


Gotu kola, also known as Centella asiatica, is a herb that is often used in traditional medicine and is believed to have a number of potential health benefits. Some people use gotu kola for skin conditions such as wounds, scars, and eczema, as it is thought to help promote healing and reduce scarring. Gotu kola may also have anti-inflammatory effects, which can help reduce redness and swelling in the skin. In addition, some studies have suggested that gotu kola may have antioxidant properties, which could help protect the skin from damage caused by free radicals.


Rose Oil contains a complex array of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants, rose essential oil is an excellent moisturizer. Research shows rose oil exhibits strong bactericidal activities, which makes it a great ingredient for acne prone skin. It also is known to calm and soothe the skin. Rose petal powder is a great gentle exfoliator for the skin.

At Kalaia, we're using ingredients that do the work of 4-5 singular ingredients.

We often say about our products "From our kitchen to our vanity" to illustrate the availability of these incredible ingredients, both inside and outside of the body.

And this month, as we go back to basics, we can't wait to teach you more, and hopefully, set you on a path to discovering how beneficial and effective Kalaia can be for you!
