Ubtan therapy uses organic besan flour, turmeric, and other herbal ingredients blended in a cream base using curd and milk. Milk soothes your skin to restore lost moisture and keep it supple.

Prevents Acne

Ubtan not only enhances the texture and look of skin, but also shows some medicinal benefits due to inclusion of ingredients such as turmeric and sandalwood that have antibacterial and antifungal properties. This helps to cure underlying infections that cause acne.

Corrects Skin Damage Caused By Ageing 

Turmeric which is the main ingredient of Ubtan has anti-ageing, anti-oxidative and anti-inflammatory properties. Ageing skin appears dull, dry and scaly. Ubtan massage is known to replenish the lost moisture from skin and thus reduce the dryness.

Reduces Dark Patches on Skin

Ubtan contains saffron and besan flour, which are known to have skin lightening properties. In addition, the massage technique used during the therapy improves blood circulation and add glow to the skin.
