natural and healing skincare
bringing ayurveda into the modern age.
Surrasa combines cosmetic and pharmaceutical principles to create stellar skincare products. We focus on creating true cosmeceuticals - products with active natural ingredients that are clinically proven to work on correcting the skin.
I spent years studying biological science, (pouring myself into reading scientific papers, studying mechanisms of different diseases, elucidating pathways, working at the bench for hours, talking to the FDA, working on bringing drugs or devices to heal, treat or help patients), but still never could feel satisfied, or feel gratification. I felt I was just doing it because that’s all I knew - and I was not helping myself or anyone.
That’s when I realized it was important to approach this problem holistically. Meaning 360 degrees. Realizing that health is composed of a variety of magnitudes - that no problem is linear - led me to founding Surrasa. Here, we approach a disorder or health scientifically, look at the mechanisms of action (or the MoA), and overlay it with natural ingredients, piece by piece, to find a 360-degree answer to the issue. We combine that with intake and reflection, and that’s what I define as holistic.
These three steps form the basis of Surrasa. We believe that a harmony must exist between mind, body and soul.
history of ayurvedic medicine
Surrasa embodies the holistic perspective of Ayurveda - evaluating the mind, body, and soul to rejuvenate and replenish the skin. The body is a connected system, and we treat it as a whole!
Ayurvedic medicine is one of the world's oldest holistic healing systems. It was developed more than 3000 years ago in India and is based on the belief that health and wellness depend on a delicate balance between the mind, body, and spirit.
