Dr. Ankita Chavan, an Ayurvedic consultant of the Ayusparsh Clinic in the Indian city of Gandhinagar in Gujarat, details a study that assessed the dermatological qualities of a chickpea flour paste

Chickpea flour (CPF) of Cicer arietinum, belongs to legumes family. Its ancient use originates from the Egyptian and Española era. It is widely cultivated in India, apart from that almost other 50 countries also contribute in cultivation.

CPF consists of omega 3-6-9 fatty acids, which help in efficient lightening effects on hyperpigmented skin. It also helps in reducing signs of dryness and sensitivity when used properly. These are also helpful in reducing inflammation. 

It also has minerals like copper, iron, potassium magnesium and zinc, which helps skin in promoting collagen and elastin production, thereby reducing fine lines and ageing signs. It also helps in supplying oxygen for cell and tissue repair. It regulates cellular regeneration to help give healthy, young and glowing skin.
