Are you looking for a gentle and natural face wash for oily skin? Is your skin oily, sensitive, prone to flare ups, clogged with open pores & blemishes?
Oily , easily irritable skin usually has a Pitta dominant prakriti as its basis. Such skin reacts strongly to harsh cleansers, granular scrubs and microplastics, heat and high sun exposure. Any attempt to strip skin of oil has the skin responding aggressively with higher sebum production. So skin gets oilier, looks dull, pores expand, get clogged and breakouts increase.
Inherently oily skin is usually described as Pitta dominant skin. However, even if we are not Pitta dominant, living in a Pitta dominant climate (hot, humid weather), or due to effects of untimely food or food which is oily , spicy, salty and sour in nature , our skin can become oily, prone to break-ups and clogged. Here the factors of environment and diet can accelerate the effects of Pitta dosha in the body.
Skin where pitta dosha is aggravated (either due to inherent nature or external factors) feels oily, looks dull and is prone to breakouts and flare-ups. It requires frequent cleansing. Stress , hot and humid weather and oily , unsuitable food can increase this condition further.. The skin tends to be very sensitive: any change in cleansers can throw it off balance causing immediate breakouts.
When Pitta aggravated skin is not looked after correctly, it can lead to un-evenness in skin texture, blemishes, redness and poor texture.

Visible difference in skin
It is a beautiful face wash – When you open the jar and take that precious one spoon for the face, the smell that comes out is out of this world. People see a visible diff in your face. Of course if we combine with real good food, the face can glow – Thank you Krya!

hi – i have found a visible difference on the skin, and this face wash also removes tan! my 12 year old uses this as an after sun, and it gives immediate results taking off the tan, and leaving the skin to glow in its natural shade. i just ordered the after-sun face pack as well .. thanks for coming up with an excellent product that is free of chemicals

Team Krya. Thank you. Loving the face and hair cleansers. My 11 year old daughter is using them as well – real surprise that, cos they usually prefer the nice smelling stuff in bottles and tubes!

Excellent formulation. I have given up using soap for my face. Skin cleaner. Blemishes lighter. Even tones. And so convenient to use.

Four years since I started using the Classic face wash. I haven’t had a single acne outbreak. Skin has improved in texture – it used to be rough and leathery before. It’s soft and supple now.

To have relatively clear skin, while heading into the 40s, which is even better skin than in one’s 30s (pre-Krya) – this is the gift of the Classic Face Wash ?

It’s a fantastic product. However no matter how carefully one washes face, this powder leaves light brown stains in the bathroom sink over 2-3 days and hence increases bathroom surface cleaning needs

I really liked the way it made my skin feel, not too oily not too dry. And the smell was soo good! Very earthy. It was great for like a month, my skin felt clean, soft and exfoliated, but then I started breaking out a little and started getting a lot of clogged pores. I’m not really sure if it was the face wash or the weather change or something but my skin started clearing after going back to my regular face wash. I love the krya mask though! I’ll definitely give this product another try!

Really like using it, makes my skin feel fresh, and the fragrance is energising too. After a few uses, I think my skin quality has improved too (but perhaps I am imagining it).
