Dear Dedicated Fans of Indu,
In light of constant growth and transformation we’re improving upon the incredible creation that is already Indu.
Indu is still mantra-mixed with the synergy blend of pure essential oils and we’ve improved the recipe by switching out a few of the ingredients for a healthier, even better for the skin formula.
Here is a detailed list of the key ingredients and their wonderful skin and life enhancing benefits:
Hemp Seed Oil: Very rich in Omega-6 and Omega-3 fats that contain gamma-linolenic acid (GLA). It has an anti-inflammatory effect that helps to promote the growth of new cells. This is crucial in calming skin irritation that comes from conditions such as acne and psoriasis.
Grapeseed Oil: The powerful antioxidants in grapeseed oil help to protect your skin from absorbing the full damage of UV rays.
Sweet Almond Oil: More than soothing to dry skin, almond oil can improve complexion and skin tone. It's highly emollient, which means it helps to balance the absorption of moisture and water loss. Because it’s antibacterial and full of vitamin A, almond oil can be used to treat acne.
Sunflower Seed Oil: A great source of vitamin E, is rich in nutrients and antioxidants, and is effective in combating skincare issues like acne, inflammation, eczema, general redness and skin irritation.
Glycerin: is great for the skin because it allows the skin to retain moisture. It can increase skin hydration, relieve dryness, and refresh the skin's surface. It's also an emollient, which means it can soften skin.
Shea Butter: High concentrations of fatty acids and vitamins make Shea butter an ideal cosmetic ingredient for softening skin. Shea butter also has anti-inflammatory and healing properties. Using Shea butter can condition, tone, and soothe your skin, especially on the face.
Aloe Leaf Extract: contains antioxidants, enzymes, Vitamins A and C, and it is highly anti-inflammatory. It can help treat burns, acne and dry skin. It may also help reduce skin conditions like psoriasis and dermatitis. Aloe Vera is a rich source of antioxidants and vitamins that help protect your skin.
Chamomile: Frequently used as a mild sedative to calm nerves and reduce anxiety, to treat hysteria, nightmares, insomnia and other sleep problems. Chamomile boasts anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties that can help soothe the skin, reducing redness and blemishes. It can even relieve skin irritations like eczema, psoriasis, and rosacea.
Vitamin E: helps support the immune system, cell function, and skin health. It's an antioxidant, making it effective at combating the effects of free radicals produced by the metabolism of food and toxins in the environment. Vitamin E may be beneficial at reducing UV damage to skin. It’s a moisturizer to treat or prevent dry, rough, scaly, itchy skin and minor skin irritations (e.g., diaper rash, skin burns from radiation therapy). Emollients are substances that soften and moisturize the skin and decrease itching and flaking.
Japanese Green Tea Leaf Extract: Research studies show that both drinking green tea and applying it topically can have benefits for your skin. Not only can green tea and green tea extract help with acne and help your skin look younger, but it also has the potential for helping to prevent melanoma and non-melanoma skin cancers.

Bergamot: Several compounds in bergamot oil have antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties. This may make bergamot oil an effective spot treatment for acne in people who do not have sensitive skin. Its analgesic qualities may also be effective against painful cysts and pimples. Commonly used in aromatherapy to elevate mood and alleviate stress, bergamot oil is said to have properties similar to grapefruit essential oil in that it is antiseptic, antispasmodic, and analgesic (pain-relieving). Some practitioners will add bergamot oil to water for use as a health tonic.
Lavender: Can be taken orally, applied to the skin, and breathed in through aromatherapy. Lavender oil can benefit the skin in numerous ways. It has the ability to lessen acne, help lighten skin, and reduce wrinkles. Lavender affects human EEG pattern accompanied with its anxiolytic (anti anxiety) effect. It’s reported that inhalation of lavender for 3 minutes increases alpha power of EEG, decreases anxiety and brings one into a better mood.
Lemon: Provides a dose of the free radical fighting antioxidant vitamin C, which helps keep skin even-toned and helps boost the body's immune system. Lemon can be used as a skin astringent as it helps motivate your pores to close and your face to tighten resulting in smoother skin.
