Spice it Up!  Unique Organic Powders in Vika's Products

Spice it Up! Unique Organic Powders in Vika's Products

Let me introduce you to the various unique, plant-based organic powders used in Vika's Essentials.

         Acacia Gum Arabic

This plant-based organic powder helps lock moisture into your skin, blending all the other formula ingredients to perfect viscosity and texture for easier applications. An excellent emollient and natural thickening agent that is safe for all skin types. We use this powder in Vika's Geranium-Propolis Day Moisturizer. 

Recent studies suggest Acacia Powder's benefits include supporting gut and oral health, maintaining blood sugar levels, and controlling body weight. Research Acacia Gum Powder as a supplement; you may be surprised! 

    Guar Gum Powder

Guar Gum is an excellent thickener, emulsifier, stabilizer, and blending agent in formulations containing water and oil ingredients. 

The food industry uses Guar Gum to thicken drinks, salad dressings, ice creams, and shakes, exceeding the capacity of other powders used in gluten-free cooking. Guar Gum derives from the seeds of a bean-like plant (legume), sometimes known as The Indian Tree. The seeds are dehusked and then milled into a free-flowing white powder that is a natural binding agent and acts as a preservative. We use Guar Gum Powder in both of Vika's Facial Washes!

     Arrowroot Powder 

Arrowroot is a starchy vegetable obtained from the rhizomes of the tropical plant Maranta arundinacea.

Arrowroot Powder is a white and powdery starch but ranks high in nutritional content. This nutrient-dense starch is a healthier alternative for baking bread, pasta, cakes, infant formulas, and gravies. The holistic science of Ayurveda values the arrowroot plant for treating wounds and as an antidote to toxins. 

Arrowroot Powder soothes irritation and inflammation. While it also absorbs excessive oil secretion, opens pores, and rejuvenates your skin's complexion. Conventional chemical-based deodorants often irritate the skin, and it's always safer to adopt an organic alternative. Arrowroot powder is a key ingredient in Vika's Tropical Organic Deodorant

We also add Arrowroot Powder to Vika's Body Butter as a natural option to improve your skin's texture.

      Turmeric Root

Turmeric comes from the rhizome (root) of a native Asian plant. It has also been used in ayurvedic, food, and other traditional medicine in China and India. This super powerful spice is in my daily supplement arsenal because of turmeric's anti-inflammatory properties.

It is excellent not only for supplementing your diet but for topical applications.

Turmeric Benefits For Skin:

  • Helps to prevent skin discoloration after acne.
  • Lightens Hyperpigmentation.
  • Brightens and invigorates dull skin.
  • Protects Against Environmental Damage.

In Vika's Acne "TNT" remedy, we infuse Turmeric and Sandalwood Powders into Tamanu Nut and Jojoba oils to activate their healing properties. 

Sandalwood Powder helps soothe inflammatory skin conditions like eczema, dermatitis, and psoriasis, calm irritated skin, reduce blemishes, and treat acne. In Ayurvedic journals, it is known to relieve the pitta dosha, which means that it has cooling properties. 

Sandalwood Powder also contains natural skin-lightening agents, so we use it in Acne "TNT" to prevent skin discoloration after acne.
