Q. Are your products tested on animals?
- Ayurdhama ayurveda is committed to the humane treatment of animals and we do not test any of our products on animals.
Q. Why does Ayurdhama use plastic bottles, bags and jars for its products?
- At Ayurdhama ayurveda, we take multiple factors into account in making decisions, including quality, customer service, economics and our impact on the environment. The plastic that we use is PET (#1) and HDPE (#2), which is highly recyclable. Fewer resources (water, electricity, mining equipment, etc.) are used in the production of the plastic bottles versus glass; and given the lighter weight and durability of these plastics compared to glass, there is a smaller carbon footprint created by the shipping of these materials.
Q. What is the best way to store the ayurvedic medicines and how long do they last?
- We recommend that our customers store their medicines in air-tight packaging, out of direct sunlight, and at room temperature or in the refrigerator. When stored properly herbs can last for many years.
Q. Why is it important to go Organic?
- Organic farming gives priority both to the health of the environment and the health of the person who will consume the goods that are grown…you! Not only does it avoid the use of potentially harmful synthetic chemicals such as growth hormones and pesticides, but it also promotes the use of methods and practices which yield healthy and robust crops.
