FAQs

 

General


What is the meaning of Taza Ayurveda?

Taza Ayurveda is a combination of two Indian words: Taza, meaning ”fresh,” and Ayurveda, meaning “knowledge of life.” While Ayurveda is the science the brand brings to the world, Taza symbolizes the bold freshness one feels when living an Ayurvedic life.


Are your products certified by the USFDA?

Taza Ayurveda is registered with and adheres to all standards set forth by the USFDA. Our supplier facilities in India also comply with ISO 9001 and GMP certification.


Are your products gluten free?

We strive to create entirely gluten-free products. However, those with gluten sensitivities should be aware that our manufacturing facility does carry and process raw materials containing gluten.

Are your products vegan?

All of our products are vegan, except for our Kumkumadi (Nighttime Facial Oil), which contains milk. In Ayurveda, milk is considered extremely nourishing and sattvic: balancing and enlivening. When applied topically, it can soothe and cool irritated or inflamed skin. At the same time, its fat and lactic acid promote a soft, supple complexion.


Are your products organic?

We strive to source 100% pure and natural raw materials directly from Mother Nature. That means that, while we use environmentally friendly, sustainable harvesting practices, our products are not yet USDA certified organic. To avoid deforestation, most of the herbs featured in Taza products are harvested by Indian tribals living in forest areas, where these herbs have been naturally grown and harvested for hundreds of years. The government of India has restricted access to these areas to specific tribal groups and associations to provide livelihood to these marginalized groups.


Do your products contain preservatives?

Our products come straight from nature, are preservative free, and contain 100% active ingredients. Their meticulous formulations follow 5,000-year-old recipes that naturally exclude chemicals, preservatives and potentially harmful additives, while organically allowing for an extended shelf life.


What kind of tests are performed on your products?

We perform a range of tests to ensure the safety and efficacy of our products and ingredients. Along with product-specific tests, we screen for heavy metals, common pesticides, and microbes.


Are your products safe during pregnancy and breast feeding?

Our all-natural formulas are safe to use during pregnancy and breast feeding; however, we always advise checking with your physician prior to use.


Do you (or a third party) test your ingredients or finished products on animals at any point?

No, we believe in avoiding unnecessary harm and violence to animals.


How should I store my products?

Products should be stored in a convenient location at room temperature. Avoid direct exposure to light.

Do you offer Taza samples?

Yes, all customers who place an order on TazaAyurveda.com will receive complimentary samples with their shipment.

Oils


Why do your oils slightly vary in color and scent?

At Taza ,we pride ourselves on authenticity. While all of our oils use time-honored formulations and techniques, the complex influences of Mother Nature cause slight variations within the oils — similar to the variance you experience with a naturally harvested wine or tea.

Why does Taza use sesame oil as the carrier oil?

Sesame oil has been treasured over centuries for its nourishing benefits. Beyond its favorable vitamins and fatty acids, its anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, and anti-bacterial properties make it beneficial for all skin types. The high viscosity of the oil also define it as an excellent carrier for our botanical ingredients.

How should I incorporate Taza oils into my regimen?

Taza oils are best applied to damp skin, making them ideal directly after cleansing. While our oils are multipurpose and designed to keep your skin hydrated and vibrant, we do recommend applying sunscreen prior to outdoor exposure. When combining skincare products, remember to move from lightest to heaviest for superior results.


Will using oils cause my skin to break out?

Despite conventional perceptions, oils are often far better for skin than toners, lotions, and creams. Our bodies naturally produce oil to moisturize our skin. Therefore, applying Taza’s nutrient-rich, anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial oils actually helps enhance and balance our bodies’ natural function. In contrast, traditional skincare products, with potentially harsh chemical additives, can disrupt that function and lead to skin irritation and breakouts. 


Can I use Taza oils in my eye area?

Taza oils offer tremendous hydration, making them wonderful for use on the upper and lower eyelid area. However, they will cause discomfort if put directly into the eye, as they are for external use only.


How long do Taza oils last?

Each bottle is intended to last for one to two months, depending on your daily usage.


What is their shelf life?

All of our oils have a two-year shelf life.

Supplements

Can I use your products if I’m on birth control or other medications?

Our all-natural formulas are safe to use with most medications; however, we always advise checking with your physician prior to use.


How long will it take to see results?

Generally, individuals experience benefits a few days or weeks after starting usage; however, results vary by individual.


How long do Taza supplements last?

Each bottle is intended to last for one month.


What is the shelf life? 

All of our supplements have a one-year shelf life.
