The ally of the immune system: Amla

Amazing qualities characterize a fruit from the Indian subcontinent and above all it is very important in traditional Indian medicine for its properties. Amla (Phyllanthus emblica), also called Amla, is a plant which produces a yellow-green fruit with a translucent skin. Its juicy pulp has an extremely bitter, astringent and sour taste: although it is difficult to eat, its properties overshadow its bitter taste.

Due to its precious benefits, Philip Martin's chose Amla as the main ingredient of Ash Body Shower

The benefits

Amla has antioxidant and antibacterial properties and is used in traditional local medicine to increase the defences of the immune system. It is a natural source that contains a rich percentage of ascorbic acid, calcium, B vitamins, iron, manganese, precious acids, numerous flavonoids and polyphenols.


The excellent content of the Amla fruit is the reason why Philip Martin's includes it in:

Ash Body Shower

Sensory Shower Gel

The queen of roses, Rosa Damascena, is picked by hand in the morning. Amla is one of the most important plants in traditional Indian medicine and Boswellia, originally from India, is grown in the Middle East. The union between the two plants and the flower is enclosed in a delicate shower gel, with an enveloping and intense fragrance of incense. Ash body shower hydrates and regenerates the skin, giving it softness and an immediate feeling of rediscovered well-being.
