  1. Brings out natural glow: Exfoliation with natural ingredients such as gram flour leaves the skin feeling clean and refreshed. Sandalwood powder is known for brightening the complexion of the skin. Exfoliating your body and face with Ubtan on a regular basis will help you achieve radiant, spot-free skin.


  1. Gentle exfoliation: We've all got hyperpigmentation and uneven skin tone, and wearing makeup all the time is a no-no. All you must do is rub the Ubtan gently and leave it on. While it dries, take a beauty nap, or go about your daily activities, and then peel it off to reveal fresh, glowing skin.


  1. Helps in removal in-grown hair: Many people are concerned about facial hair and ingrown hairs on the body. While Ubtan cannot completely remove this hair, scrubbing your skin with Ubtan results in the natural removal of some ingrown and facial hair.


  1. Suitable for all skin types: So, do you have oily skin, normal skin, or a combination of the two? You may be using specific skin care products. That is not the case with the Ubtan. It is suitable for all skin types. To make it work better for your skin, you can add raw milk, water, or honey. Milk and water can help with oily skin, and honey can help with dry skin.


  1. Gentle cleanser: The importance of cleansing the skin well is emphasized in all beauty routines. However, choosing the right cleanser can be a nightmare. Many times, we spend a lot of money on expensive face washes only to be discouraged when they result in skin breakouts or excessive skin dryness. You can leave behind all that fuss and count on Ubtan for clearing out all the dirt, impurities from within. You will see a noticeable difference even with a single application of Ubtan.
