Patanjali Ojas Multani Mitti Soap {Product Review}

I am not a big fan of soaps but then I do not care much for body washes too. I use whatever catches my eye and end up not picking it up again. But, this soap was undoubtedly one of the mentionable ones.I got this soap after reading its review by Anamika. Well, I had never used clay soaps and this intrigued me coz multani mitti is gentle enough to be used as a daily exfoliant.

Before starting on with the review, I would like to introduce Patanjali to all of you who are not aware. It is the brand started by Baba Ramdev and sells all the ayurvedic concoctions and products. They have also recently forayed into cosmetics where you can find a lot of interesting products. For a list of products, check out their website. Also, these products are available only at Patanjali shops which are opening at almost all places now a days so keep a lookout in your vicinity. They also have an online shopping point mentioned in their website.

Price - 35 INR

Ingredients
An impressive list of ingredients. I am not very sure if you can read all the ingredients so I will just recount the most important ones - turmeric, sandalwood, aloevera, brahmi, neem, manjishtha, tulsi, bhringraj, liquorice and reetha - the ones which I know from the list. The base material of the soap is supposedly has oil base, multani mitti, zinc oxide and jasmine scent or fragrance.

Zinc Oxide is an antiseptic and anti-inflammatory along with being a broad-spectrum sunblock agent. It is especially useful for people with inflamed skin.
Liquorice helps in skin lightening but is also useful for treating dry skin and eczema, psoriasis and such kinds of skin conditions.
Manjishtha is again an another inflammatory which cleanses the skin and soothes it.

My Experience
I loved the soap because it doesn't dry the skin like others do. The multani mitti is actually there. The soap is long over otherwise I would have clicked it. It lathers a lot, is muddy in color (similar to that of multani mitti only) and has a very strong jasmine smell which rises a notch in the bath which I do not really like but can bear. The grittiness of multani mitti is exfoliating and very gentle on the skin. The soap gives a very clean feel after the shower and doesn't leave any residue behind which some soaps do (I do not like the residue at all so that's a plus for me!).

Once I accidentally dropped the soap in my bucket which was full of very hot water so the soap ended up staying for around 5-7 minutes in the water. When I finished my bath, I fetched out the soap. It was completely soft and there was nothing but multani mitti in my hand. My fingers indented the soap and its shape changed completely. Though, after a few hours, the soap again firmed up but obviously in a very weird shape which was apparently very ergonomic for me :) So, according to me, this is a good soap to be bought.

A single bar lasted me around one to one and a half month so it just doesn't dissolve in water.

My Recommendation
A good substitute for the commercial soaps, is far more inexpensive and does a better job if you compare it with high-end soaps like Dove and Olay.

  7. Hello,
    I am new to your blog and I LOVE it! Especially the articles on skin & hair! Where can I purchase Multani Mitti soap in US? Are Patanjali products sold in US? Thank you.

    ReplyDelete
  8. Hi Swati,
    I have combination – oily skin.

    I bought this soap and I simply love its smell.
    I also bought the Aloe Vera Gel from Patanjali.

    I am suddenly getting lots of pimples on my head and cheeks, so wanted to try Aloe Vera Gel from Patanjali.
    I am applying it the following way.
    At night after washing my face, I apply it except on eyes & lips and keep it overnight.
    In morning, I wash it off with water.

    Please tell me if its correct way or no?
    Also, can I apply it on eyes & lips too?

    ReplyDelete
  9. @balencia I am so sorry for the delayed reply....somehow I missed replying to your comment...thanks a lot for your kind words :)
    unfortunately Patanjali products are not available in US...but I guess they can be ordered online from their official site...this is the link to their site... http://healthservices.divyayoga.com/
    hope this helps :) and I am again sorry for being late in replying!!!

  10. @Shruti yeah this soap smells nice and subtle and the aloe gel is fine.
    before replying to your question, how does your face feel right after applying the aloe gel and the next morning...does your face feel stretched coz it generally happens with aloe...if you don't feel stretched and your face feels soft and light next morning, then you can surely apply it around the eyes (don't apply if your skin feels stretched anywhere at all) but avoid the lips coz you might accidentally ingest some and its not completely natural for ingestion...

    ReplyDelete
  11. Hi Swati,
    My face doesn't feel much stretched just a little the next morning.
    But the gel is supposed to be completely absorbed or no? I can feel a layer on my face in the morning or am I applying alot?
    Also, I think this gel can be applied on hair too?
    Will it work on oiled hair / onion juice + oil hair?

    ReplyDelete
  12. hey Shruti...yeah I was thinking that aloe does stretch the skin so I think you shouldn't apply it like a moisturizer...you can apply and keep it for 15-20 min and then wash it off like a mask....coz aloe does dry the skin or if you think any oil suits your face, mix the oil with aloe and then apply...btw for eye area, almond oil does wonders so you can use that and don't worry about the oiliness coz you just need a drop for each eye area...
    this gel can be applied on hair too but I have used it as a part of hair masks but never applied it naked so I don't know how it works...I did use aloe gel straight from the plant and it does wonders but I am not really sure of this gel and I personally didn't really like this gel....but I think you can mix it with oil and use it but I have no idea about the results...and since your skin does feel a bit stretched so don't apply the gel to your eyes coz the area is very delicate and already dry and any stretching and drying of that area will help in causing wrinkles and fine lines!!! hope this helps :)

  13. hi swati,after reading your review i bought this soap yesterday.i have used it only twice but i am so loving it... May be this will be my HG soap ... By-the-way,my skin feel a lil bit dry after using it.but i guess,it is since i have dry skin.So,today i bought a big bottle of glycerin and i am using it with patanjali rose water as my new natural moisturizer...

    ReplyDelete
  14. you might be feeling dry coz of the multani mitti in the soap and in case the dryness becomes strechy feely then stop using the soap coz it will unnecessarily mak your skin parched...instead for moisturization, I would suggest camay or yardley soaps....international camay in black color is awesome in case you don't get yardley!!!

    ReplyDelete
  15. oh...thanks for the advise,i will give yardley a try,may be lavender one?i have seen the soaps at store but i though they wont be good for dry skin.but,now i may change my view.

    ReplyDelete
  16. I am not sure how lavender would work but yup do give them a try!!! I was supposed to buy a soap but I forgot the last time I went to the store...I did't review it coz last time, the whole bar of soap went down the drain my bathroom :D but I shall review it again when I use it!!!

    1. use potato juice on your arms every night and let it dry and wash it off. use sunscreen in the day time to prevent more tanning and stay out of sun from 10 - 5 strictly and reapply sunscreen every 2 hours.

    2. it will take 1 week to show difference and use elbow gloves to cover your arms. I am assuming its only arms but this is fine for all parts of the body even face.

  29. As i am student so it is very hard to stay out of sun from 10-5
    . i already use sunscreen but with no effect...and i became very tanned with little exposure to sun...and it is very awkward to take umbrella.. and one more thing i hv a very facial sweating problem..how to control it???? thanks....

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. which sunscreen do you use?? well, taking umbrella is not at all awkward...it absolutely fine. why do you get conscious??? and, for tanning, use potato juice on your skin.
      for facial sweating, i can only say that using a compact or loose powder can help. i know its a huge issue and i haven't found any solution to it except staying in an airy place but that's not always possible, i know. try out compacts. they might help. and, sunscreen induces more sweat, btw.

  30. i use arish sunscreen, bt i thnk it has no effect...my skin is getting darker day by day...can tan ever be reduced completely with potato juice?????
    also tell me some good sunscreen..... i hear sun block is better than sun screen is it true???if true which sun block should i use?????? thanks.....

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. sunscreen and sunblock are essentially same...if you want more knowledge on sunscreen, you can check out the sunscreen section in categories (accessible on top of the page in the navigation bar). I would suggest neutrogena sunscreen dry touch one. and, also, you should apply sunscreen in appropriate quantities for proper protection.
      well, i don't know about completely but it would be better than not using at all and it also depends on how skin reacts to a remedy.

      second, if you have splits, cut them off. and, take proper diet and nourish your hair properly. condition your hair and apply a weekly deep conditioning treatment or you can go for applying egg weekly. also, check out more articles on hair care here:

    My problem is acne- face,shoulders,on the back too. Had to undergo chemical peeling (a dermatological procedure) to get rid of the pigmentation i was left with after d pimples wear off. So please suggest me a soap that basically reduces the incidence of acne eruption. And,if any remedy for pigmentation too. And lastly, any advise on how to deal with underarm blackening?

    1. hello...thanks a lot for the kind words!

      there is no soap which reduces the acne eruption and i would not suggest any soap to be used on the face. i would instead suggest the garnier pure active face wash. it is really good and i think it will help with acne as well!!

      for pigmentation, check out this post:
