Yashad Bhasma – A Safe & Natural Sunscreen


Sunscreens are perhaps one of the most essential ingredients for your summer skin care regime. These summer essentials are vital shield our skin from the harmful effects of UV Rays which are known to cause premature aging, dullness of skin, dehydration and pigmentation.

In Ayurveda, Yashad Bhasma is basically zinc oxide prepared naturally by the fine processing of pure Zinc metal with Aloe Vera Juice.

This unique Bhasma is prepared using the Ayurvedic process of Shodhan or purification and Maranaor burning. After the transformation of the base metal into Bhasma, the resulting ash undergoes several tests -known as Bhasma Pariksha in Ayurveda, to check their purity and efficacy. After its elaborate processing, Yashad Bhasma comes into existence as a natural and safe sunscreen option to use.

Yashad Bhasma is a powerful sunscreen and a natural alternative to chemical skincare formulations. In addition, a lot of sunscreens lose as much as 90% of their effectiveness in just an hour, and need to be reapplied often. This is not the case with Yashad Bhasma, as it is a sunscreen which physically blocks the UV rays.

The preparations of Yashad Bhasma work differently from chemical sunscreens. Chemical sunscreens usually soak into the surface of the skin and quickly find their way into the bloodstream, without being detoxified by the liver. A physical sunscreen like Yashad Bhasma coats the skin and provides a protective barrier to UV rays.


Why Your Summer Skincare Should Contain Yashad Bhasma?

  • Yashad Bhasma offers protection against “Broad Spectrum Ultraviolet Rays” (UVA/UVB), unlike chemical sunscreens that usually only block one type of UV light.
  • Due to its astringent property, the Bhasma helps in regulating oil or sebum production in the skin and therefore works well on acne and oily skin type.
  • It helps to prevent future sun damage and dark spots− it also helps to improve synthesis of new skin tissue and collagen, which is needed to maintain youthful skin.
