Dating back approximately 5,000 years, Ayurveda is an Indian system of health and well-being with the aim of reaching a state of tranquillity.

The brand-new facial care & body care product ranges are packed with antioxidants to pollution-proof the skin and protect it from the damaging effects of free radicals.

Ayumi launched 10 years ago, originally starting out with three skincare ranges: Turmeric, Sandalwood and Neem. Since then extended its lineup with a huge variety of different products, from massage oils to haircare to henna powders. They are all formulated with Ayurveda at the core of the brand with the traditional Indian ingredients at the forefront.
This is Sheilesh Shah, Ayumi’s founder. Also known as Shi, from the moment he wakes to the moment he sleeps, he is passionate about natural skincare and the benefits of plant-based ingredients for internal health as well as skin health. He grew up surrounded by the powers of nature. His father was an Ayurvedic practitioner and would heal and treat his clients with herbal and plant-based remedies. From such an early age, he gained in-depth knowledge about the healing properties of these traditional Indian ingredients and which herbs and spices are best for particular ailments from simply being surrounded by them on a daily basis. When his father moved to the UK in the 70s this knowledge was brought with him and so Shi's career developed into this sphere a well.

THE BRAND NAME
The name Ayumi was born from the ‘Miracle of Ayurveda’. Ayurveda is the 5,000-year-old ancient health and wellbeing system that originates from India and its ancient philosophy teaches the respect and power of our natural surroundings. Ayurveda teaches that if people live in a balanced way, then they will enjoy good health. It is this natural philosophy that inspired Ayumi with a particular focus on using traditional Indian herbs and spices to cleanse, balance and protect the skin.
