About Us


“Tradition does not mean to look after the ash, but to keep the flame alive” – Jean Jaures

There is something magical about the word ‘handmade’, isn't it? It stands for uniqueness, personalisation, and discernment – all of which Artisanal Skincare embodies. Our range of skincare and wellness products are not only handmade, but limited edition as well. We produce them in small quantities and without any preservatives, in order to stay true to the inherent goodness of the ingredients. 

Our products are not traditional but come from tradition and from our belief that what you cannot eat should not be put on your skin. The oils, herbs, and spices that go into our creations are sourced from all over India – from Himachal to Kerala – with some even coming from across the oceans, which is why the end result is near perfect. Each eco-friendly, natural ingredient has neither preservatives nor chemicals – just pure, authentic skin care.

Artisanal Skincare is the brainchild of Shivani and Akanksha. Shivani is a reiki practitioner and yoga teacher, and a lifelong believer that Mother Nature has answers to most things. Akanksha is an award winning wildlife filmmaker with a deep connect with nature and wilderness that only few people have. Our collective belief in the healing power of nature is what gave birth to Artisanal Skincare. To present traditional skincare recipes with a modern twist. We come from India but our sensibilities are of the world.

Each magical mix is derived from our travels, and recipes passed down from our grandmothers. Take that, and our focus on the miracles of nature, and you have Artisanal Skincare. In fact, we are so committed to delivering nothing short of perfection that all our products have been tried and tested on our family and friends before being made commercially available. This also tells you that we do not test on animals.

Free from preservatives, chemicals, and essences, and packaged in recycled plastic, we believe that nature delivers best when used without adulteration. Hence most our products are available in powdered form. This helped us to avoid preservatives, and increase the shelf life of the products. Apart from lasting longer, our products are in powder form for ease of travel and limiting spillage.

Precise instructions on our back label also enable you to use the product accurately, without wastage. And that is the least we could do to contribute towards the environment. 

Welcome to the world of Artisanal Skincare.

We thank you for using our products and hope you enjoy them as much as we loved creating them.
