In 1940, well before Ayurveda became a global phenomenon, Sri Kesavan Vaidyar, an Ayurvedic physician, started manufacturing a soap called Chandrika.
Ayurveda, the traditional (5,000+ years old) medicine of India originated in the ancient, oral teachings of spiritual masters, who believed that all living things contain underlying energies. The practice of Ayurveda emerged as a method to balance these energies and promote optimal health using diet, massage, herbs, and lifestyle adjustments to harmonize your body, mind, and spirit.
Today, nearly 80 years later, Chandrika is synonymous with Ayurveda and loved by millions of households everywhere.
