Timeless Kumkumadi Oil (15 ml.)



The name Kumkumadi comes from its key ingredient Red-gold saffron, which is known as Kumkuma in Sanskrit. Considered to be a miracle skin tonic, this oil works wonders to nourish, moisturize and brighten the skin.

Our Kumkumadi oil is handmade using a classical Ayurvedic process called taila paka. First comes the kashaya phase where an herbal infusion is made using specific herbs.

Nutrients are then slowly extracted from whole natural ingredients, some gently simmering into milk and others into oil. The milk and oil mixtures are then combined with the herbal infusion and reduced over low heat to make the taila paka resulting in a naturally occurring micro emulsion with rich skin benefits.


  • Superpowered by 32 deeply nourishing flowers and herbs in combination with saffron, lotus and turmeric.
  • Rich in antioxidants such as carotenoids and crocetin which help make the skin appear fresh.



All of Shankara’s products are crafted to the highest standards with ultra-pure ingredients targeting the well-being of our customers and meeting their skincare needs.

We blend ancient Ayurvedic principles with the modern knowledge of actives to create highly effective formulations that promote healthier and radiant skin.

All our herbs have been carefully selected for their enhanced ability to deeply purify, repair, renew and protect the skin.

Is the Timeless Kumkumadi Oil suitable for dry skin?

Kumkumadi Oil is an all-natural moisturizer that uses sesame oil as its base oil. Itís Vata-pacifying nature enables it to balance dry and rough skin. If you have dry, Vata-skin, you can increase the amount to 4-5 drops per application.

Is the Timeless Kumkumadi Oil suitable for acneic skin?

Timeless Kumkumadi Oil is suitable for acneic skin. However, depending upon the severity of your acne, we would recommend that you explore our award-winning Clear Skin Kit for optimal results.

Is Timeless Kumkumadi Oil suitable for sensitive skin?

If you have sensitive skin, we recommend that you use our Timeless Kumkumadi Oil with our Anti-age Serum.

Can I apply Timeless Kumkumadi Oil after my night cream?

Most creams have some form of natural or synthetic wax in them, which prevents oil from being absorbed in order to achieve the maximum benefits. We would recommend that you use the Kumkumadi oil by itself, or apply our Anti-Ageserum or Daily Repair Serum prior to applying the Kumkumadi oil.

Can I apply Kumkumadi Oil during the day time?

Most Kumkumadi Oils on the market should not be used during the day-time. However, we have enhanced the formula to make it suitable for use even during the day-time.


How long does it take for Kumkumadi Oil to start showing results?

You will start seeing results with regular application in a period as short as three weeks.


Should you apply anything before or after Kumkumadi Oil?

We recommend cleansing your skin with Hydrating Cleanser (for Vata and Pitta Skin) and Purifying Cleanser (for Kapha Skin). You may also apply after Daily Repair Serum or Anti-Age Serum if desired.
