Recently, I have purchased some products from a brand which is very new to me. You know I always explore new products, provided that they must be natural products. At this, my eyes got stuck in the brand Men-Tsee-Khang , not any typical beauty brand, rather an institute to preserve Tibetan medicine and astrology. It has departments to market Tibetan Herbal Health Products( SORIG), Ritual Items and Tibetan Handicrafts.

Before stepping into the products I want to say some words about the brand Man-Tsee-Khang.
Man-Tsee-Khang is a charitable, cultural and educational institute, functioning under the guidance and support of His Holiness The Dalai Lama. Today it has become the world’s leading institute for the study and promotion of Tibetan Medicine and Astro Science.Men-Tsee-Khang exports, in New Delhi, is its department to sell the non-medicinal SORIG products. SORIG in the Tibetan language means ‘the science of healing’. SORIG is the brand name that ranging from skincare or beauty products to herbal teas, natural health products, food supplements to incense sticks etc. The products are formulated in strict proportions of active and non-active ingredients to contribute to the effective nourishment . The active ingredients have important functions of its own when non-active ingredients remaining passive, provide a healthy supportive environment in bringing best results . SORIG products are not tested on animals and are made entirely from the herbs grown in Tibet and the Himalayan region. They not only good for your hair or skin but also relax and refresh your mind too.

The golden yellow colored oil comes in a transparent plastic bottle with green screw cap. the oil very light textured and it has a mild flowery scent which immediately relaxes your mind as you inhale it. I massage with the oil twice a week, as directed. It really relaxes my nerves, reduces stress and gives a deep sleep at night. I can’t tell you if it can reduce fat or not, because you know that’s a long process and that depends on many factors like exercise, diet and all. It also removes tan. Whatever it’s really good and worth buying.
2. SHASOE-PAE-KAR( BEAUTY CREAM):
It is a herbal creamy moisturizer which improves skin texture making it soft, supple and glowing. It protects the skin from ultraviolet ray and harsh winter winds.
INGREDIENTS: Sunflower Oil, Aqua, Beeswax, Mineral Wax, Borax.
The white colored beauty cream comes in a light blue tube. It has a creamy texture which is a bit heavy. It can be easily applicable and leaves no greasy feeling. It is suitable for normal to dry skin. My skin is combination one which acts as almost dry skin in winter. So it suits me now. It is too creamy but does not make my skin pale when other dry skin creams do. Rather it has given a glossy and even texture which I am loving. The cream has a mild flowery smell. But whoever of you is worried to take care of your dry and normal skin, you can happily use to get a good healthy glow on your face.
The SORIG anti-wrinkle cream is formulated with natural herbs in accordance with the Tibetan Science of well being. This nourishing cream helps to get youthful skin by treating the wrinkles and revitalizing the cream. It reduces skin blemishes, heals acne and makes the skin smoother and fairer.
Apricot kernel oil, Sunflower oil, Beeswax, Aqua, Ceresin, Aloe vera gel, Borax, Pomegranate, Berberis aristata (also known as Tree Turmeric to treat skin infections), Turmeric, Holarrhena antidysenterica (Kurchi flower to treat infections).
This butter-colored cream comes in a baby pink tube with same colored screw cap. The cream is light textured and has sweet flowery scent which surrounds you for a long time. It is not so creamy like the beauty cream and is immediately absorbed into the skin. The cream is not greasy and gives a glossy look to the face. I use it as night cream and in the next morning I didn’t see any red bumps or pimples on my face. I am seeing a clear and smoother skin. Those who have matured and tanned skin can use it. Anyone with sensitive skin also can use it. But I think the gals with oily skin may not use the cream in wet summer days.
4. TA-NUUM(HAIR OIL):
This hair oil is recommended for healthy hair growth. It helps to eliminate dandruff, prevent premature hair graying and controls hair fall. This hair oil controls excess loong (wind) disorders and promotes clarity of senses.
Aprocot kernel oil, Terminala chebula (Haritaki), Amla and Arnebia nobilis(Ratanjot).
The hair oil comes in a white plastic bottle with light blue screw cap. The maroon colored oil is light but the smell it has I don’t like at all. It has a typical ayurvedic medicine like smell. But if I must appreciate the effects the oil has shown. I was badly disturbed wit dandruffs and the obvious hair fall. The oil has reduced much both the issues. I use twice weekly, keep it overnight and in the next morning wash with a herbal shampoo. It relaxes me too. I strongly recommend you to buy those who have both the problems. It will give wonderful result.
5. TRIE-JUK( TRIPA LOTION):
Tripa lotion is also made up of natural herbs with Tibetan Science of healing. It helps to promote inner coolness, harmonize the body, minimize the interrupted sleep and improves blood circulation. It treats freckle and pimples, making the skin healthier, softer and suppler.
Sunflower oil, Petroleum jelly, Apricot oil, Glycerine, Beeswax, Stearic acid, Cetyl alcohol, sweet orange, Eucalyptus globulus, Cucumber, Bitter gourd.
The white lotion comes in a white plastic bottle with same colored screw cap. It has a sweet fruity scent and very light textured. Honestly speaking, I haven’t started using it, as using it once I can feel that I’ll use it in summers. The lotion is more gel than a cream. So I think it will be useful for my combination skin in summers.
So, what do you feel about these five? These products are worth buying. They are not at all pricy. As much I can remember,I spend around 320/- for these five. I bought them from McLeod Ganj, but if you want to buy you don’t have to go there. They have store in all major cities in India. You can buy them sitting in each corner of the world through online. They sell worldwide.
Today I have talked too much. You might be bored. So I have shut down my lap but not forever, coming back very soon. Till then buy. Happy Shopping.
