Ubtan is a skin-cleansing preparation that has been used in India since ancient times. It contains a unique blend of saffron, sandalwood powder, orange, red lentil, and oatmeal. As per Ayurveda, saffron (kesar) is the best anti-blemish and fairness agent. Oatmeal is highly absorptive and hypoallergenic, and helps to soften the skin. Oats have also been clinically shown to help heal dry, itchy skin. Red lentil has excellent cleansing properties. Combined together, these ingredients make Jiva Kesar Ubtan an ideal exfoliator.
