Shata Dhauta Ghrita

What is Shata Dhauta Ghrita?

Shata-dhauta-ghrita (SDG) is an Ayurvedic preparation, commonly prescribed for treatment skin conditions. It is prepared by washing purified ghee one hundred times with water. This procedure transforms the ghee into a soft, cooling, nourishing, silky unguent that is used as a traditional moisturizer and antiwrinkle skin cream. SDG is a highly concentrated emollient, processed by hand according to ancient Ayurvedic teachings and imbued with mantras; true food for damaged skin as ghee penetrates and nourishes all seven layers of tissue.

Therapeutic Properties

  • aids in rebuilding of dermal tissue, supporting healing of skin

  • soothes pain due to skin irritation

  • decreases inflammation

  • moisturizing and astringent qualities help to balance the doshas in the skin

  • excellent for reducing Vata and Pitta processes on the skin (sunburn, rosacea, eczema, acne)

 

Usage Directions

  • Rub a small dab of SDB directly on the affected area.

  • If using for face, use about the size of ½ a dime and rub into skin with facial massage after washing.

  • Store at room temperature

  • Product improves with age; no expiry

 

Tips

  • Yes, it’s supposed to smell like that. (SDG smells like ghee)

  • The scent dissipates within 10min

  • It oxidizes faster when you use your finger to dip in the container. So, to keep from getting funky smelling and yellow (signs of oxidation), use a wooden stir stick, or other clean utensil to dip into the container.

  • I use  and keep a few days worth out on a wasabi dish to let it air out. Then I will dip my fingers in the dish for daily application. I just clean the wasabi dish with a dry papertowel or towel before reloading it. This also decreases the scent when applying.
