Dr. Desai Soap

The Power Of Ayurveda To Heal

Four years ago, a pharmaceutical scientist set out to create a line of skincare products based on the ancient principles of Ayurveda, the “science of life” practiced in India for over 5000 years, and Dr. Desai Soap was birthed.

Located on a solar-powered farm in New Jersey, the family business crafts therapeutic soap and skincare products using organic milk from their goats and organic and fair trade herbs, and ships the finished products in reusable cotton bags all over the globe.

“All personal care products leave a residue on your body when used,” Dr. Vinay Desai says, explaining that the cleansing or foaming property of most commercial shampoo and cleansers is provided by synthetic detergents. “These detergents strip away natural oils that your skin produces, plus they deposit chemical residues after they strip away those oils.”Dr. Desai Ayurveda Soap

However, it’s what happens next that really concerns Dr. Desai. “The skin being the largest organ in our body, absorbs these residues where they can cause long term effects internally or produce external allergic responses such as dermatitis or eczema,” he says.

Fortunately, the highly absorbent nature of the skin can also be a benefit instead of a liability. Dr. Desai Soap uses Ayurvedic herbs and principles to holistically treat a range of skin conditions. The company’s customers have reported their natural products helpful for improving and even healing eczema, psoriasis and other ailments, sometimes within days of beginning to use the soap. Dr. Desai Soap products also stand as an alternative to eczema medications, which may have long-term side effects.

Dr. Desai Soap Products“Most steroidal and prescription drugs are very effective in managing life-threatening conditions, and medical emergencies, for example,” Dr. Desai says. “However, they work by suppressing your immune system, and can ultimately make you more susceptible to infectious diseases and have other side effects when used long term.”

Dr. Desai explains that herbs and oils used in Ayurveda can often help without the need for suppressing the body’s natural functions.

“Ayurveda and yoga are both complementary ancient Vedic sciences of India,” Dr. Desai says. “Ayurveda is considered by many scholars to be the oldest healing science. The basic principle of Ayurveda is to prevent and treat illness by maintaining balance in the body, mind, and Dr. Vinay Desai Soap Productsconsciousness,” he says.

The company’s soap line includes products ranging from the “Sandalwood Rejuvenating Facial Bar,” to “Tulsi-Neem #1 Anti-Itch and Anti-Inflammatory Treatment Soap,” and they have recently launched a new line of liquid soaps.

Dr. Desai lives with his wife, Donna; three children; three rescue dogs, alpacas, a llama, goats, chickens, Guinea hens, two horses and one miniature horse.
