Within the practice of Ayurveda, all matter is believed to be made up of five elements: Earth, Fire, Water, Air and Ether. They manifest in the human body as three basic principles: Vata (Ether and Air), Pitta (Fire and Water) and Kapha (Earth and Water). These three principles - vata-pitta-kapha – govern all the biological and psychological functions of the body and mind. Illnesses – of the skin, body, or mind – are created from an imbalance in these principles.
We believe that Uma creates the world’s finest Ayurvedic products available today because of our unparalleled mastery of the three most critical elements of the Ayurvedic practice: generational knowledge of Ayurvedic scripture, centuries of practical experience with Ayurvedic medicine, and access to the most pristine natural ingredients (grown and harvested entirely on our own farm). While most leverage Ayurveda for health benefits alone, our deep and nuanced expertise in this science allows us to also create powerful beauty solutions that surpass their strongest synthetic counterparts in creating lasting results.
