Traditional Futures by Shubhi Sachan

With guidance from Ayurveda - a natural medicine practice native to India - Shubhi Sachan makes a skin cleanser with rice-husk ash.

Focused on inventing the future by investigating the past, Shubhi Sachan explores the potential of historical materials and techniques made obsolete by new technologies. A case in point is rice-husk ash, once an agricultural by-product used for cleaning teeth and utensils, now a key ingredient of successfully revived formulas for incense, skin cleanser and black ink. Paying tribute to tradition, Sachan aims to support the rituals surrounding the material and to encourage its adoption into our daily lives.
