How My Battle With Infertility Led to 2 Beautiful Children and an Amazing-Smelling Serum

I’m Ditti, Founder & CEO of Kerala Rituals. I discovered Ayurveda in my early 20’s when I was struggling with PCOS & fertility issues. Multiple doctors told me I wouldn’t be able to have kids. I refused to accept that and looked for other ways to heal myself...

Frequently asked questions answered

How did you make this serum so affordable?

The truth is that skincare companies charge as much as 700% more than the cost of ingredients – and they like to spend a fortune on influencers and models to convince you to buy it. But we keep our prices fair, and we trust that once you try it, you’ll never want to use another serum ever again.

Why does it smell SO GOOD?!

The combination of grapefruit oil, orange peel oil, orange oil, and rose oil invigorate this serum, while Ayurvedic herbs create a lovely base. To put it simply, we use high-quality ingredients that bring fresh natural scents to your skin.

How often should I use it?

You can use this Vitamin C oil up to 2 times a day, everyday. However, I suggest starting with once a day, morning or night. If you are on the minimal side with your skincare routine you can use it 3-4x/week and still see amazing results. I suggest using it 2x/day every day during winter months when the air is dry and cold. You can also experiment with going to bed with naked skin, meaning that once a week you do not put any skincare product on your face. Always use your intuition when it comes to self-care!

Is it greasy?

Not at all! Your skin won’t feel tacky, sticky, or greasy at all, because the base oil is rosehip oil, which is lightweight, fast absorbing, does not leave any residue, and is non-comedogenic.

Is this good for oily, acne-prone skin?

Yes! It is non-comedogenic and high in linoleic fatty acid which is proven to help acne-prone skin. Let’s bust the myth that persons with oily skin should stay away from oils. Oily skin types tend to over-cleanse, stripping skin of its natural oils, but guess what? Oily skin needs oils to balance its lipids. Oily skin is going to want to replace more oil if we over-strip it! It becomes a vicious cycle. Stop it! Let your skin heal. Use simple, pure oils with high-linoleic/low-oleic fatty acids.

Can I use this if I have really sensitive skin?

Absolutely! These gentle, natural ingredients do not cause irritation like other serums and anti-wrinkle treatments. It’s also packed with skin-repairing ingredients like Rosehip Oil, Squalane, Manjistha, Rose oil, Grape seed oil, and Vitamin E.

What order should I put this in my skincare routine?

Cleanse your skin first, then use our Ayurvedic Vitamin C Face Oil, followed by Sunscreen, and you’re done! If you want to fit this into your current routine with multiple products, then use this Vitamin C Oil after your serum and moisturizer to lock in long-lasting hydration. You can also add a drop or two to your foundation for extra dewy coverage.

How much time will I save every day?

Some people will literally save 20 minutes a day, depending on how complicated their current skincare routine is.

Do I use it in the morning or at night?

Thanks to the natural, non-irritating retinol alternative, you can use it both in the morning and at night for rapid, easy results. In the morning, Vitamin C gives you protection from photodamage during the day. At night, it stays on longer and can work its skin-repairing and anti-aging magic while you sleep. If you have oily skin, you might prefer using it at night. Personally, I work from home and love using it during the day for its relaxing aromatherapeutic effect and as a refreshing and nourishing work break.

What is Ayurveda?

Ayurveda is the oldest medicinal science from India, using herbs and natural ingredients as medicine and targeted treatments for health, beauty, and longevity.

Recently, scientists have begun studying the ingredients used in Ayurveda for everything from stress relief to skincare to heart health and more, and the research is increasingly supportive of Ayurvedic traditions. 

It turns out that 3,000 years of wisdom is frequently backed up by science, too. 

By eliminating foreign chemicals from your skincare and focusing on time-tested solutions, we’ve created a serum that not only smells amazing, but also keeps you safe from some of the modern chemical creations that companies have been using to damage your skin while charging you hundreds of dollars.
