Haritaki, botanically known as Terminalia chebula, is a deciduous tree that produces the revered Haritaki fruit, primarily native to South Asia including India and Nepal. Deeply entrenched in ancient Ayurvedic practices, Haritaki has been fondly dubbed the "King of Medicines" for its vast array of therapeutic properties. This venerated fruit is one of the three components of Triphala, a traditional Ayurvedic formula that has been used for centuries to balance the three doshas: vata, pitta, and kapha. Holistically, Haritaki is believed to possess rejuvenating properties, promoting vitality and longevity. Internally, it aids digestion, supports the body's detoxification processes, and acts as a mild laxative. The active compounds in Haritaki, including tannins, flavonoids, and polyphenols, grant it antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and antibacterial properties. For skin health, Haritaki is a boon. It purifies and promotes skin rejuvenation, and its antibacterial properties can be effective against acne-causing bacteria. The antioxidant properties help combat free-radical damage, leading to a reduction in the visible signs of aging. Haritaki's adaptogenic nature helps the skin combat environmental stressors, making the skin appear more radiant and youthful. Today, as the beauty world increasingly leans toward natural ingredients, Haritaki finds its rightful place in various skincare formulations, emphasizing its age-old benefits for modern users.


Nourishe uses the latest skincare ingredient science in our formulation process, and we choose ingredients that we believe in and that are shown to be safe and effective. However, we cannot make a particular claim about a particular product just because an ingredient is contained in that product, even if that ingredient has been proven to show certain benefits. Therefore, any claims made on the ingredient pages cannot be automatically assumed to be applicable to products containing those ingredients. In addition, all of the information on our ingredient pages comes from a variety of sources across the internet. We have done our best to compile this for your benefit, but we cannot guarantee the information on these pages is accurate.
