Herbs and natural ingredients have served as the foundation for many skincare potions since time immemorial. One beauty secret that has been passed on from Ayurveda is the goodness of ‘Kumkumadi Tailam’ which literally translates into ‘saffron oil‘ in English is known for its luminescent properties.

What makes RAS Kumkumadi Elixir so special?
The Revival Kumkumadi Face Elixir is a classic Ayurvedic concoction of the finest 29 herbs and extracts in a nourishing yet lightweight texture which heals your skin from within.
It is a carefully crafted and botanically tested non-comedogenic formula which is not just sesame oil based. It has the power of antioxidant rich squalene oil which is an excellent emollient and fights skin damage to keep the skin barrier protected. It also has vitamin E rich Jojoba Oil which when you slather it on your face mimics the skin’s sebum and balances out your complexion.
How to make most of RAS Kumkumadi Elixir?
As we know that healthy skin cells are more resistant to damage, as they have the ability to produce more collagen and elastin. These skin cells are what make your skin look its best and they are also what keeps your skin young and vibrant. For young, healthy, and radiant skin, the regular usage of Kumkumadi Tailam can enhance the health of your skin cells and mitigate signs of ageing.
We can use this face oil at night to improve your skin colossally. Of course, it can be used both at morning and night, but lets’ look at why we must include it in our might routine for a lasting luminous skin:
Night oils balance out your skin’s oil production:
When you use a face oil, your skin's oil production balances. As a result, oily skin will produce less oil. On the other hand, dry skin gets well hydrated.
Your other skin care products will work harder for you:
Applying Kumkumadi Oil as the last step of your nightly skin care routine will not only moisturize and illuminate your skin, it will lock in the nourishing ingredients from your serums or lotions. Your face and not your pillow will absorb more of your skin care product’s amazing benefits.
We repeat: Oily or acne-prone skin will benefit from it:
When a non-comedogenic oil (meaning it will not clog your pores) is used at night, it's able to penetrate deeper layers of the skin to combat breakouts and acne while hydrating the skin super effectively.
Kumkumadi face oil helps to not only hydrate the skin but also kills acne bacteria, thanks to the lemon, licorice, and of course, squalane.
Kumkumadi at night – Anti-aging elixir:
It can also help combat anti-aging skin issues. It helps fight fine lines and promote a youthful complexion thanks to the antioxidant rich herbs.
