MIAMI – Arya Essentials is a skincare line inspired on Ayurveda, an Indian practice that uses botanical ingredients and other ancient traditions in an attempt to address a malady.
Keep in mind that if you donate directly to the organization, you get to report the tax-deductible charity contribution. Charity Navigator rated the most effective charities.
Harpers Bazaar named Arya Essentials' $68 concoction, which included coconut and sesame oils, "The Best Body Oil" in the market.
It's a "supercharged 'hydrator' and radiance booster," Senior Beauty Editor Alexandra Tunell said.
Glamour Magazine recommended the line's $64 hair oil, which has various oils including coconut and amla, also known as emblic myrobalan. Pop Sugar's assistant editor Jessica Cruel said she used it as a hot-oil hair treatment "to ward off dry, itchy scalp" and it felt like a "full aromatherapy experience."

Beauty editors from the Green Product Junkie, Style Watch, Health and Bustle recommended the $92 face oil, which has rose hip seed, amla and brahmi oils. Arya Essentials also carries a $78 eye balm and a $50 toner.
The products are handcrafted in Brooklyn and for orders of $100 or more shipping is free. During the month of October, the company promises to donate 15 percent of all proceeds to the Young Survival Coalition, a nonprofit organization that aims to help the roughly 13,000 women under 40 who are diagnosed each year.
The Charity Navigator gave the Young Survival Coalition three stars out of four, because they spend about 19.4 percent of donations on administrative expenses.
