WHAT IS AYURVEDA?
ayurveda is an ancient Indian medical practice that dates back roughly 5,000 years. "ayur" means "life." "veda" means "knowledge" or "science." "ayurveda" translates to "life knowledge" or "life science." ayurveda's aim is cure disease, prevent illness, and maintain a healthy and balanced life to attain longevity. ayurveda uses the natural resources mother earth provides us to heal. earth&water is based on the principles of ayurveda for the sake of sustaining health and balance through all natural skincare. to read more on ayurveda, head to our blog page .
WHAT MAKES EARTH & WATER A SUSTAINABLE COMPANY?
earth&water is sustainable for more reasons than one. we use recyclable glass bottles and recycled kraft paper for packaging. our ingredients are vegan unlike other ayurveda-inspired skincare companies. by choosing vegan ingredients, we aren't only saving animals, we're saving the planet. our vegan ingredients are plant-based. growing plants conserves water, cleans the soil, and purifies the air. our founder has chosen a vegan lifestyle for ethical and environmental reasons and therefore made it her mission to spread this knowledge through earth&water.
WHY IS THERE A SHELF LIFE FOR THE PRODUCTS?
our products have shorter shelf lives than other brands because we are free of chemical preservatives. our natural preservatives are vitamin e oil, essential oils, and vegetable glycerin. shorter shelf life means longer skin life. keeping our products free of synthetic chemicals is what sets us apart and why our products reduce inflammation and hydrate the skin. using our products won't wreak havoc on your skin or what's below it. earth&water products are so natural they're even safe to eat- though we do not recommend because our product's purpose is for topical application. our bottles are small and can be fully used within the shelf life time period.
WHAT MAKES EARTH & WATER DIFFERENT FROM OTHER BRANDS?
1. we're vegan. other ayurveda-inspired brands use milk powders and ghee (clarified butter) for ingredients. in order to be sustainable and environmentally friendly, we remain vegan and are free of animal products and animal testing.
2. we're sustainable and use glass and recycled kraft paper for packaging. when you purchase from earth&water, you're not only helping your skin, you are helping the planet.
3. all of our ingredients are natural and found in your kitchen. think about products you've used in the past. would you eat them? earth&water ingredients are free of parabens, sulfates, and other synthetic chemicals. our ingredients are perfectly safe to consume orally, though our product's purpose is to be topically applied.
4. our founder sincerely cares about the planet and your health.
