Forest Essentials Multani Mitti Ubtan Packaging

The ubtan comes in a plastic jar in a regular eco-friendly brown Forest Essentials packaging. The plastic jar has a golden cap and a translucent lid so that the product does not fall if the cap is not put properly. 

The packaging mentions all the required information like ayurvedic formulation, directions for use, ingredients, and the method of making. 

We love the fact that the ubtan is made using fresh seeds, herbs, flowers and fruits, that are sun-dried, hand-ground and packed within 48 hours.

Forest Essentials Multani Mitti Ubtan How to Apply

This ubtan is used to wash the face. Take half a spoon of ubtan, mix it with yogurt, aloe vera juice or pure rose water to make a creamy paste. Use the paste to wash your face gently and rinse well.

Apart from using it to wash your face, you can even use it as a face mask. Apply the mixture on your face and let it sit for around 10 minutes and then wash it off gently. If you want to exfoliate, you can gently scrub the ubtan while washing your face.

  • It has a mild earthy fragrance and the texture is finely milled which makes it ideal for exfoliation as well. 
  • This ubtan is made according to the ayurvedic formulation.
  • It gave a glow on the face and reduced oil production. 
  • It is 100% natural and does not contain any synthetic fragrances or colours.
  • After using the ubtan as a face mask and mild exfoliator, the reviewers notice a brighter looking skin because it helps in removing the dead skin cells. 
  • The ubtan is hand ground and no machines are involved in the making.
  • It does not only contain multani mitti but various other skin-friendly ingredients like turmeric, fenugreek seeds, sweet almond seeds, etc.
