Turmeric (INCI: Curcuma longa) is an ancient powdered spice that is part of the ginger family. It has a wide range of therapeutic and cosmetic benefits. The active ingredient, curcumin, is a natural antiseptic with antibacterial/antimicrobial properties. It heals and prevents dry skin and is used to treat eczema and acne. Turmeric is traditionally used in daily face and hair care, as well as in Hindu celebrations. It has also been shown to slow the aging process and wrinkle formation.

In India, turmeric has been used for centuries as a natural cleanser; the powder is mixed with milk to bring a healthy glow to the skin. Kama Ayurveda Ubtan Soap-Free Body Cleanser offers a contemporary version of this concept. It contains a combination of finely powdered herbs, cereals, pulses and nuts, said to soften and smooth the skin. Traditionally used after ayurvedic treatments to clean the skin, it can also be used as an alternative to soap.
