A post shared by RANAVAT (@ranavat)

Founder Michelle Ranavat hopped from engineering to entrepreneurship when she founded RANAVAT, an Ayurvedic-focused skin and hair care line. Prioritizing quality over everything else, she ensures that every ingredient used is “methodically extracted [and] preserved for its healing properties” – only the best for you, boo! Mixing quality and Ayurvedic ingredients, there’s no doubt that RANAVAT’s a brand that deserves to be on your radar.

What Exactly Is Ayurveda?

If you’re unfamiliar with Ayurveda, it’s a historical medicinal system of all-over healing practiced for centuries in India. It encourages balancing your body, mind, and spirit with ingredients that can be topically or internally consumed. For example, antioxidant-rich turmeric is a popular Ayurvedic remedy used to reduce and soothe inflammation.

Ayurvedic recipes and treatments have been getting a lot of love this year, and it’s not surprising since we’re living in the wellness era. And what better way to dip your toes into the benefits of Ayurvedic medicine than with RANAVAT’s easy-to-shop collection that honors their Founder’s South-Asian heritage. We’ve picked our faves from the bunch that we know you’ll love.

This lightweight facial serum uses saffron (also referred to as liquid gold – it’s that expensive!), a luxurious Ayurvedic ingredient that soothes post-inflammatory pigmentation by promoting skin cell renewal. Brightening turmeric (another Ayurvedic healer) works to soothe inflammation while licorice root evens skin tone. Basically, she’s a spenny goodie but she gets the job done.
