Sorig Herbal Skin Care

The skin is the largest organ of our body and Tibetan Medicine identifies the skin as the most sensitive of organs. For over 2500 years the people of Tibet have held secret natural health and beauty remedies in their Himalayan world. Tibetan Medicine explains that skin care involves not only external creams and oils but also proper care of our diet, lifestyle and environment. It is  equally important for the health of our skin and bodies that we eat healthy food, rest and relax and keep a positive mental attitude. It is a holistic system of medicine, taking into consideration the relationship between the mind, body, spirit and the environment - balancing the three main body energies which form the basis of a healthy mind and body, and the five cosmic energies that surround us in our external environment.

This cream based on natural herbs is derived from a formulation of a renowned 17th century Tibetan physician.  It was originally developed as a protective and nourishing cream to withstand the cold winds of the Tibetan plateau. It helps to prevent dryness, revitalizing the skin and making it smoother and more youthful.
