Hey there! Welcome to our first blog post at Kudarat skincare! We created this blog to share all things about gluten-free and natural skincare (especially ours!), to launch new products (we’ve got a huge line-up coming!), to educate, and to let you know when we are having sales and specials.
Really, though, all that aside, you’re probably thinking, “what the heck is a Kudarat and OMG how do I even pronounce that?!”
Let’s start with the basics…how to pronounce Kudarat. My dear family has been relentlessly torturing me on this particular topic. Ha, ha. Kudarat is pronounced “coo-da’-rot”, not “cooter rat” or anything else. We don’t have any cooters (apparently cooters are a type of river turtle…) or rats hanging out here, at least none that I know of!
Now that we’ve sorted out how to say Kudarat, what does it mean? It’s actually a really pretty word in Hindi that means nature. We put a lot of effort thinking of an awesome name that reflects our values and also our brand philosophy. Check it out and let us know what you think!
This goes along with our tagline, well, really more like our mantra, nature-soul-spirit. Kudarat is not just an amazing natural gluten-free skincare brand, it’s a lifestyle choice. It’s about feeding your skin and nourishing your soul. It’s about choosing natural, safe products that deliver results without harming you or the world we live in.
So, without further ado, welcome! We are really excited to have you along for this journey!

What the heck is Gluten anyway?
So, what is it?! It’s actually a family of nasty proteins found in all grains. NOT just wheat, barley and rye. I repeat, it’s in all grains. There are literally thousands of known gluten proteins. For real. That’s not a typo. Here’s the bad news—almost no research has been done on most of the members of this horrible family. The vast majority of the research has focused on the specific gluten protein that is found in wheat, barley, and rye. Most of that work is tied to celiac disease. This is definitely part of the problem and we’re here to dispel some of the misinformation that’s out there. After reading this, I really hope you’ll kick gluten to the curb.
Most people shop for their skin care based on packaging, advertising, or out of habit from what they’ve always used, but they rarely actually think about what they’re buying or what they are putting on their skin.read more
Pomegranate (Punica granatum) is a beautiful superfood that has been used for thousands of years. It originated in the Persian Empire and is still primarily cultivated in the Mediterranean, India (which we of course love!), and the Middle East.
