Rippan Sandhu is the co-founder of Ayurda skincare. Using her scientific, technical and Ayurvedic knowledge, Rippan assists Dr Ajit in developing time tested Ayurvedic beauty formulations to create simple, fuss-free skin care products.
Rippan explains how Ayurda was born: "Our customers are ordinary people like myself. Our lives can be very demanding at times and there is no time for complex skin care regimes". And with this simple mantra in mind Ayurda, a simple yet effective skin care that caters to unique skin care and lifestyle needs, was born.
Rippan has been an ardent follower of Ayurveda since childhood but didn't know that this will eventually lead her to create a wellness skin care brand. To complement the retail skin care range, Rippan has created a holistic treatment menu which is currently being offered to beauty and Spa professionals.
She has worked on the concept of Spa Ayurda and opened the first flagship spa named "Spa Ayurda" in 2010. Her background is that of a University Lecturer specialising in science, fashion design and holistic psychology for women and children. Life away from work is focused on family especially her two children.
Favourite Ayurda products?
Too hard! I really like using Hingot Cleanser as I find this makes my skin so soft favourite is Skin rejuvenator that has really helped to
even out the skin tone. Lastly a must have is Fortified mudpack as it is fantastic for tightening and toning skin.
