Our skin gets tanned and damaged over time due to prolonged exposure to the sun. The UVB radiation of the sun burns the upper layers of the skin called the epidermis, causing sunburns, which is commonly called tan. When UVA rays penetrate the lower layers of the epidermis, they trigger cells called melanocytes to produce melanin. Melanin is the brown pigment that causes tanning. Tanning may even cause skin problems like hyperpigmentation, dark spots, and dullness.


It is challenging to remove tanning from your skin. So the best way to avoid tannning is to avoid getting it in the first place. Protect your skin from unwanted tanning with proper sun protection. Use an umbrella or wear a hat. Sun protective clothing and sunscreen also protect the skin from tanning.


However, the ancient science of Ayurveda found the solution for getting rid of tanning centuries back. To heal the skin from the damage of the sun, Ayurveda recommends a regular massage with the herbal oil Nalpamaradi Taila. This amazing oil removes tan without causing any harm to the skin. When applied regularly, you can start seeing results within a week.


Nalpamaradi Taila is a powerful antipruritic, antifungal, anti-oxidant and demulcent oil that can reduce itchiness, irritation, and inflammation. The antipruritic and soothing nature of Nalpamaradi oil make it an effective solution for a wide variety of skin diseases.

Ingredients of Nalpamaradi Taila


Nalpamaradi Taila is an Ayurvedic herbal oil made from the barks of the popular peepal tree known as the Ficus trees. These barks are effective in curing various skin diseases, and even beneficial in ulcers, and nervous disorders.


To prepare Nalpamaradi oil, barks from four different species of the peepal tree are used. These are the Banyan (Ficus Benghalensis), Gular/Dumar (Ficus racemosa), Pukar (Ficus benjamina) and Kamarup (Ficus microcarpa). These four Ficus species together are known as Nalpamara in Ayurveda. Besides Nalpamara, Nalpamaradi Taila also contains other powerful Ayurvedic ingredients like vetiver, turmeric, amla, and sesame oil that heal the skin and make it glowing.


Nalpamaradi oil can pacify all three doshas, but it mainly pacifies Kapha dosha and Pitta dosha.
