Chickpea flour is used in Indian Ubtan (body pack) as a gentle exfoliant for the skin. Blend with other dry powdered ingredients such as oatmeal, rice flour, almond or cashew meal, cinnamon powder, turmeric, cardamom, rose petal powder, sandalwood powder and milk or yogurt to create naturally cleansing ubtan mixes. Blend your dry ubtan with hydrosols and heavy cream and apply to dry skin. Massage the ubtan until it dries and falls off the skin and then rinse clean. Ubtans have been used since ancient times as part of the tradition Indian beautification rituals before marriage. Ayurvedic practitioners prescribe the use of ubtans as natural soap-free cleansers for individuals with sensitive skin.
