Burdock as an herb is used in traditional medicine for many ailments.  Burdock root oil extract, also called Bur oil, is used in Europe as a scalp treatment.  Herbalists consider dried burdock to be a diuretic, diaphoretic, and a blood purifying agent.

Doshas and the Skin

Ayurvedic medicine (Ayurveda) is one of the world’s oldest medical systems.  It traces its roots to ancient India, more than 3,000 years ago.  Today it remains one of India's traditional health care systems.  Its concepts about health and disease promote the use of herbal compounds, special diets, and other unique health practices.  The government of India as well as institutes throughout the world support clinical and laboratory research on Ayurvedic medicine, within the context of the Eastern belief system.  Ayurvedic medicine, however, is not widely studied or employed as part of Western medicine.

Ayurveda focuses on the balance of three energies called doshas.  Each dosha has unique attributes for both the mind and body.  Each also has specific influences on the skin as well, in turn creating overarching “skin types” each of which has specific needs and challenges.  AyurDerm’s products are formulated to address each dosha’s impact on the skin using both traditional Ayurvedic ingredients that have been used and depended on for thousands of years, as well as the most effective modern ingredients available today.  It’s important to keep in mind that each person has their specific individual dosha balance, so the skin may often exhibit signs of more than one dosha.  Ideally an Ayurderm skincare regimen is likely to include products geared toward multiple doshas thereby addressing multiple skin concerns.
The dosha symbol or symbols appears near each Ayurderm product, making it easy to pick.

Vata Vata (Air):  The Vata dosha represents movement, and manifests as normal to dry skin.  Vata skin types often exhibit visible signs of aging such as fine lines, wrinkles, discoloration and loss of firmness in addition to dryness, flaking and dark under-eye circles.  Vata skin needs moisture and ingredients that help reinforce and rebuild the skin.   SHOP VATA-SKIN PRODUCTS
Pitta Pitta (Fire):  The Pitta dosha represents transformation and light, and generally appears as combination and/or sensitive skin.  Pitta skin types are prone to redness and irritation, as well as excess oil, acne, unwanted pigment and inflammation.  Pitta types require lightweight moisture and ingredients designed to soothe and calm the skin.   SHOP PITTA-SKIN PRODUCTS
Kapha Kapha (Earth): The Kapha dosha represents structure and stability, and is associated with normal to oily, young, healthy skin.  Kapha types are prone to dull, sluggish skin due to toxin accumulation, as well as excess oil, enlarged pores and acne. Kapha types require detoxifying ingredients and products designed to maintain its youth and health.   SHOP KAPHA-SKIN PRODUCTS
