The founding principles behind Tara Ayurveda are the lifestyle discipline of Ayurveda -- a 5,000-year-old science of life originating in India. Ayurveda utilizes the curative properties from nature to encourage the body and skin to restore its own vitality and beauty. Tara Ayurveda addresses the three constitutional types -- Vata, Pitta, and Kapha. Tara Ayurveda recreates these ancient formulations in an effective skin-care program that addresses each individual's specific and sensory needs.
