Note: At Vikarah Holistic Beauty Rituals, we follow a transparent labelling policy. We are keen to maintain the accuracy of the ingredient list on our website and other E-commerce platforms. However, we are always updating our formulations to use the cleanest and greenest ingredients on the market - so this list is subject to change! For an accurate listing of ingredients in each product, please refer to our ‘What’s Inside’ (Ingredient Tab) on our website. It is the most up-to-date ingredient list and may differ from product packaging.
We vow that we will never stop budding and enlightening!
Our products are generously prepared using raw, organic, wild & farm-sourced ingredients, handcrafted in concentrated forms

Q: How long will the 60ml bottle of Toner last?
With daily use, morning and/or night, it will last you approximately 1-1.5 months
Q. Can I use it to calm down the redness I get after threading my eyebrows?
Yes, all our toners can be patted around the bruised brow-line which helps to reduce the appearance of redness and inflammation instantly. It can also be used around the orbital bone (the area around the eyes) which helps to reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, puffiness and dark circles.
Q. How frequently can I use the toner?
Toners can be used anytime during the day and/or in the evening post cleansing with soap/cleansing cream to refresh and soothe your skin.
Q. Do I need to wait for the toner to dry before applying moisturizer/sunscreen?
The simple answer is no. We recommend applying your moisturizer/sunscreen to the skin directly after spritzing the toner as this will ensure that an added layer of hydration is locked-in. Damper skin also helps the actives in the moisturizer/sunscreen to penetrate much better, resulting in better absorption.
Q. Can I use this as Moisturizer?
No, toners are used post-cleansing, to tone the skin, preparing it for moisturizing. May also be used post shaving and as a refreshing mist throughout the day.
Q. Can I continue to use other skincare products, get facials, etc. in combination with Toner?
It’s a personal choice. Some products/treatments can severely dry out or even damage the skin and counteract the balancing effects of Vikarah’s Toners. For best results, we recommend using our skincare products / Ayurvedic makeup/soaps in conjunction with Toners.
Q. Within how many days I can see the results?
The answer differs for everyone. While most individuals notice an immediate improvement, for some it may take 2 to 3 weeks. Best results are always apparent when a complete Vikarah skincare ritual (appropriate for your skin concerns) is followed, which includes;
• Bathing your face & body thoroughly in warm water (preferably in the morning) with Vikarah Handcrafted Artisanal Soaps.
• Cleansing your face with Vikarah Cleansing Cream Range thoroughly in warm water (preferably in the evening/before bedtime)
• Spritzing your face and/or body with Vikarah Toner range to moisten the skin (in morning & evening after cleansing)
• Sparsely applying Vikarah Moisturizer/Sunscreen range to seal in the moisture; while your face & body is still damp (in morning & evening after toning).
• Completing your skincare ritual with Vikarah Face & Body Powder for a fresh, mattifying look (preferably only in the morning).
However, using Vikarah Mask and Scrubs 1 – 2 times a week will add up the results.
What we put into our body is as important as what we put on it. If your skin shows little or no results even after following the above-suggested skincare ritual, we advise you to consult with a Nutritionist or Natural Practitioner to address other issues such as diet, digestion & stress that may be causing your skin issues.
Q. My skin has been looking worse, why is that?
Switching to a simple, holistic, plant-based skincare routine may result in the releasing or ‘purging’ of accumulated impurities. This process is natural and temporary; we highly encourage you to stick to the ritual. Allow your skin to release built-up synthetics, preservatives, and toxins. Give it time & trust the process. How long this takes depends on your individual situation – your health, diet, digestion, stress and prior skincare choices.
Q. I've noticed that a separation had occurred in the Toner. Is this a problem?
Vikarah uses no synthetic emulsifiers to bind the oil and water phases of our products. Occasionally, some sediment does occur at the top/bottom. This does not mean the product is spoilt, nor does separation lessen the product's effectiveness. Simply shake well and use it.
Q. Can I no longer use Toner after the use-by date?
We cannot guarantee the efficacy of the product after the expiration date; therefore we do not recommend use after this date.
Q. My skin is really sensitive/allergic. Will Toner work for me?
We know the frustration you feel when nothing seems to work! Our Toner is a 100% toxin-free formula that is impressively effective for sensitive, delicate skin with allergy & rashes. Ultra mild & safe for everyday use from day 1.
However, if you are unsure, we recommend you to check our transparent ingredient list (Ingredients Tab) to eliminate ingredients that may cause you a problem.
Q. Can I use this product while pregnant or nursing?
Yes, all our Vikarah products are formulated with safety in mind, especially for those who might be extra vulnerable – like pregnant/nursing women and babies. We carefully assess each of our ingredients in just the right amount to protect, nourish and hydrate; healthy for both you and your little bundle of joy!

Q. Are your products completely natural?

Vikarah is an Ayurveda based, results-driven brand precisely formulated with time-honored, ALIVE ingredients capable of achieving outstanding results.
Q. The product is slightly different in color & scent from the last one I bought. Is this normal?
Yes, when using natural ingredients, there can be a lot of variation year after year. Minor differences will almost always exist with a natural product, based on the batch of its harvest. At Vikarah, we deliver each product to you in its purest, most unaltered form – so you may see slight differences between batches but rest assured it is the same potent formula and ingredients that you love. We hope you’ll love our true colors!
Q. Are there any hidden ingredients? Is every ingredient listed on the product page and packaging?
We don't hide any ingredients - our products only contain the ingredients listed on the ingredients tab on the product page & packaging
Q. What has been added for the fragrance?
All fragrances in our products are comprised only of aromatic, natural, raw, custom blends of pure essential oils and extracts. They are completely free from nature-identical and synthetic fragrances.
Q. How do I know the ingredients in your products are truly safe?
As a company, we are committed to transparent labeling practices and educating our customers about why each ingredient is used in our product line. We also work closely with our suppliers ensuring not only our products are safe but we actually know the source of origin.
Q. Do you sell samples of the Cleansing Cream?
At this time we do not offer samples. However, you are welcome to request samples of any of our products with any product purchase (for order value #5000 & above) from our website. Drop your request at email@example.com and we will be happy to answer you.
Q. Do you work with bloggers, vloggers & influencers?
We love to work with bloggers and influencers. However, due to the large volume of requests we receive from bloggers, vloggers, and other outlets, unfortunately, we cannot address every inquiry or meet every request. That said, we do look through all of the inquiries we receive at firstname.lastname@example.org and will contact you if we feel there is a good fit. We may be back in touch to ask for your viewership stats, links to your social media pages (if not already provided), and any other information you think would be helpful for us to consider in our review of your request.
We really do appreciate your interest in our brand and our mission towards the Holistic Beauty Rituals.
Vikarah’s products are crafted using fresh, natural ingredients. It is therefore important to store products in cool, dry space. Ideally, your special beauty cabinet in the coolest room of your home. Bathroom is generally not the best place to store our products, as it tends to get both humid and hot, which might shorten the shelf-life and efficacy of the product.
We strongly recommend you begin using the product upon receiving it from Vikarah or one of our authorized retailers and not storing them for later use. We craft each product to order, so you can rest assured that you will always receive the freshest batch when you order from our website.
Use clean spoon or spatula to scoop out the product, and not your fingers. This will help in keeping unwanted bacteria away from your skin treasures.
Please note, though our products do not contain conventional preservatives like parabens, we have put tremendous efforts in developing alternative “Green” preservation systems that ensures broad spectrum preservation of our products that contain aqua, honey and hydrosols.
