When the Uma founder’s great aunt was a young bride-to-be in rural India, pre-wedding anxiety sent her skin into a frenzy weeks before the big ceremony. Seeing her daughter’s frustration, her mother – an avid botanist, with a deep understanding of Ayurvedic scripture – formulated a powerful regiment of clarifying and healing botanicals to specifically to treat her blemishes. It was so effective that not only was her daughter’s flawless complexion renewed in time for her wedding, but her teenage son began using it, too, and the blends have been a well-kept family secret until now.
