Affirmation: I create space for my unlimited potential to unfold.
Aligned with morning (awakening) and evening (relaxing) energy as well as our skin and body’s varying needs at those times, Aika have created Dosha-specific products and holistic rituals to enrich their rejuvenating benefits. The delicate bonding of organic ingredients also help to restore true wellness as a loving twice-daily practice. These Ayurvedic-inspired rituals are a gift to us to connect within and come home to ourselves.
The Kapha Pure Polish is the first step in the Kapha Arise Ritual and when combined with the Tonic and Balm, its effects are amplified. As our natural metabolic functions are focused outwardly on protecting our skin from daytime environmental and emotional influences, the Kapha Collection works together to create a deep and intuitive sense of wellbeing based on our individual needs.
AS A CLEANSER
Always start with clean, dry hands.
Using the spatula provided, scoop a chickpea-sized amount of Pure Polish into your palm.
Add a few drops of warm water and mix with your fingers until it is a creamy consistency to your liking.
Massage onto your face and neck in circular upward and outward motions with a gentle pressure.
Remove by rinsing off thoroughly with cool to lukewarm water.
AS AN EXFOLIANT
For enhanced exfoliation and a gentle peeling effect let the Kapha Pure Polish dry on your skin for a few minutes. This encourages a subtle drawing action allowing the old/dead skin cells to adhere to the Kapha Pure Polish while it dries. Remember to include your neck and décolletage.
Once dry, using upwards and outwards circular massage movements, lightly roll it off.
To completely remove, simply rinse off thoroughly with water.
AS A MASK
As a balancing and purifying mask treatment mix the Kapha Pure Polish with cool to lukewarm water (or warm milk and honey for added nourishment) to a thick and creamy consistency.
Apply onto damp face and neck and leave on for for 10-20 minutes.
Use this time to reconnect to your true essence by doing a mindfulness practice such as meditation, listening to some inspiring music or having a warm bath.
To remove, gently wipe/rinse off with water.
Boost your skin first thing in the morning by using your Pure Polish as a morning mini-mask every day. Apply it to damp skin and keep it on while you brush your teeth, read the papers or have your morning drink. Then simply rinse away with water or in the shower for fabulously fresh and super soft skin.
Great to use as a pre-party oil-controlling pick-me-up mask for refreshed skin.

Triphala – Translated as ‘three fruits’ Triphala is composed of amalaki, bibhitaki and haritaki and is a powerful Rasayana (rejuvenating superfood). It is a favourite daily Ayurvedic supplement for balancing all the Doshas, containing five of the six tastes (rasas) – sour, pungent, bitter. It’s unique in that it simultaneously cleanses and detoxifies at the deepest levels while at the same time supports and rejuvenates. As a detoxifier, it increases micro-circulation and helps flush out toxins from the deepest layers of tissue. Highly nutritious, Triphala is loaded with anti-oxidants to scavenge free radicals, and support elastin and collagen production in the skin.
Barley – A Kapha-balancing grain, Barley is mildly astringent and diuretic which helps keep skin cleansed, reduces puffiness and regulates the production of excess sebum. It is rich in selenium which helps maintain skin elasticity and gives skin a firm, toned and fresh appearance.
Clove– Aromatic clove is rich in eugenol which gives it anti-septic and anti-inflammatory properties. It’s potent anti-microbial properties helps reduce acne, breakouts and blemishes and heal skin.
