    Hi Krishnaamma,
    Nowadays I am alergic to most soaps so end using using only payatham maavu... Can you please give the names of the ingredients in tamil so that I can make it?
    Thanks.

    Regards,
    Lalitha

    Dear Frnds,
    If you are allergic to soaps, you can try these soaps,
    1. Pears oil control- I've used it for more than five years. i dont find any allergic reactions so far.
    2. Johnson baby milk soap- i thought to have a try over this soap. it is good for oily face(mine is oily face) but makes the body dry.
    3. Dove- fresh cream= I tried this soap . no irritation.very soft. only thing iis, i cant use it for face.
    Now changed to my baby soap itself. i use moisturiser after bath so no problem.........

    alternate days i use bath powder made of green gram, besan, and orange peel...........

    but dont avoid soap completely.............

    Please give the names in tamil as it will be useful for the people in India, especially in Chennai.

    Re: Bavanchalu,kachooralu English names

    Hey,
    i came across this post while looking for the english names of these herbs- my mom knew just the telugu version. One question...do these herbs also have some beneficial effects on the skin, besides the cool aroma they give out?
    Do you know the herb vattivellu as well? is that also used similarly in nalugu pindi mixes, or is it more of a hair care herb?
    Appreciate all the info u'v given. hope it heklps me find these herbs in delhi.
    Bye.

    besan flour is the best. you could also try using finely ground green gram dal(Paasi paruppu). AS suggested by others try using baby products. They are made to suit sensitive skin

    Dear Krishnamma Madam

    Please give the names of the ingredients in Tamil. As nowadays I have too many allergy problems getting skin infection. Please give the names as early as possible. Also suggest where from we can get all the ingredients.

    Thank you in advance.
