More about Urban Veda

We have 4 skincare ranges (Radiance, Purifying, Soothing, Reviving) that align to the Ayurvedic doshas. Each range is targeted at a different skin type and have been formulated with a combination of exotic fruit enzymes, Ayurvedic actives and essential oils to balance skin and the mind. Ayurveda is a 360 approach to health and wellbeing working to balance the body internally, physically, mentally and spiritually so our products aim to balance all aspects.

Key information

- We use between 97-100% natural ingredients in all of our skincare products and our range of 100% Natural facial oils are Cosmos Natural certified.
- Our packaging is 100% recyclable and our plastic bottles are made from 50% Post Consumer Recycles Plastic. We have also recently launched our zero waste reusable muslin cloths and vegan dry body brush.
- We support the Plastic Oceans Foundation by donating 10% of our online sales and through our partnership with Wastecare we can facilitate the recycling of our customers empty skincare products from our brand as well as other brands.
