SDG Skin Care

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.

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.
