Thousands of years before modern medicine provided scientific evidence for the mind-body connection, the sages of India developed Ayurveda, which continues to be one of the world’s most sophisticated and powerful mind-body health systems.
More than a mere system of treating illness, Ayurveda is a science of life (Ayur = life, Veda = science or knowledge). It offers a body of wisdom designed to help people stay vibrant and healthy while realizing their full human potential. Shankara’s offerings are deeply rooted in the complete science that is Ayurveda.
Inspired by international humanitarian leader, and spiritual Master, Sri Sri Ravi Shankar, a group of us started thinking about how to infuse the Ayurvedic wisdom of the East with the knowledge of actives and modern processes of the West to promote wellness and sustainable skincare.
And thus, Shankara was born! Since 2001, as a pioneer in this space, Shankara’s unique line seeks to work on the physical, mental and emotional levels to promote a sense of well-being. In collaboration with our partners and consumers, we are committed to making the world a better place. We donate 100% of our net profits to humanitarian causes.
