Mumbai: The Vishwa Hindu Parishad has launched a line of beauty products containing cow dung and gau mutra (cow urine).

The VHP, while stressing on the medicinal value of cow dung and cow urine, also claimed that their products were superior to the ones currently available in the market.

 

“The use of gau mutra in medicines and beauty products will help farmers and prevent them from selling cows. Ayurveda talks about use of cow dung to prevent pimples. But people are reluctant to use dung, which is why we are making beauty products out of it,” the VHP leader Venkatesh Abdeo said.

Some of the products include Nandini beauty soap (aloe vera, almond oil and gau mutra), Lal Dant Manjan (pudina ka flower, cow dung ash, Harde Churna laxative (harde soaked in fresh gau mutra) Snannadi Vilayan bathing liquid (gau mutra arka, hau maya bhasma), Nandini skin cream (gau mutra rasa, gau maya rasa, yellow beeswax).

“We even have medicines using various compositions which are useful for cancer, heart diseases and other ailments. We make 48 medicines and have taken eight international patents so far. It is just promoting Ayurveda in different form,” Mr Abdeo said.

The hindu outfit had appealed to the people to invest in the products, so that cow urine becomes popular.

Ayurvedic practitioners said using bovine urine and cow dung in medicine is a common practice.

“There are some medicines mentioned in Ayurvedic grantha which contain cow dung and gau mutra. However, what formula the VHP is using is not known,” an Ayurvedic practitioner said.
