About Dr. Pratima Raichur

Visionary and pioneer of the Ayurvedic Skincare field, Dr. Pratima Raichur combines the wisdom of Ayurveda with her expertise as a chemist, botanist and ayurvedic doctor to compose a holistic system for skin wellness, profound ayurvedic therapies and a remarkable line of pure, organic products. 

Pratima has provided the gift of healing to thousands of men, women and children for over 40 years, balancing mind/body systems, rejuvenating complexions and clearing up skin problems that defied treatments by top dermatologists. 

In 1980, Tej Spa was born on 56th Street in midtown Manhattan and with that, the pure PRATIMA organic skincare line arose. After much success and an ever- expanding clientele, Pratima Ayurvedic Skincare moved to New York City's Soho neighborhood in 2006. Designed in keeping with Vastu and eco-friendly principles, Pratima is the first day spa in New York to be built in accordance with the guidelines of the U.S. Green Building Council's LEED committee.

Dr. Raichur is an international lecturer and the author of best-selling book, Absolute Beauty. Her PRATIMA skincare line, which she still hand makes to this day, has captured the hearts of editors at leading beauty and wellness publications across the world.
