Elanveda was founded in 2008 with the goal of making the best natural wellness products on the planet. They aim to transform the way people manage their health and wellbeing. Using the ancient wisdom of Ayurveda as a guide, Elanveda makes whole body wellness products in sunny California using the finest natural and organic ingredients from around the world. All of their products are gluten-free, cruelty-free and vegan, with no fillers and absolutely nothing artificial. Every ingredient is carefully sourced for quality and purity, and formulas are bottled in premium Miron violet glass to protect their potency over time.
“In 2005, my wife Pamela contracted the adult form of Chickenpox known as Shingles. Hesitant to take a prescription drug, we researched natural and traditional methods to stop the virus. During the research process, we came across Ayurveda and consulted a practitioner who recommended an herbal composition for Pamela. In two short months, Pamela’s shingles went dormant.
Two years later, my wife and I decided to have children, and it soon became apparent that we had fertility issues. During an appointment with our internist, it was determined that my hair-growth medication was damaging the process. We consulted an Ayurvedic practitioner who created a formula for hair growth, consisting of grown-in-the- wild fruits and herbs. Stopping the prescription drug and taking a specially formulated Ayurvedic supplement led to pregnancy and healthier hair in less than four months.
Unbelievable! Ayurveda was two for two! This inspired a lifestyle change for both of us and we began to dedicate time and research to Ayurveda. Analysis of the data indicated that an Ayurvedic lifestyle offers hundreds of solutions for everyday health & beauty needs.
We have been trained to think that pharmaceutical drugs, antibiotics, and chemicals are traditional medicine. Ayurveda has existed for more than 5000 years. Really, western medicine is alternative and Ayurveda is traditional!
Enthusiastic about Ayurveda, we started Elanveda to share our knowledge and provide access to organic, natural and health-conscious formulas for everyone.” – Dan Palmer
What is your morning routine? evening? My morning routine is pretty basic. I use Desert Essence Tea Tree Toothpaste to brush my teeth, I wash my face with a lemon-verbena soap, and then I put on a Kiehl’s Face Cream with SPF 30. I also meditate every morning, which really keeps me in balance. My evening routine includes washing my face and then applying Elanveda Regale Face Oil, followed by a Kiehl’s Anti-Aging Cream.
What 3 tips or tricks can you share for feeling and looking your best? (1) Daily exercise. (2) Transcendental Meditation. It’s essential for my ability to regulate my emotions and level-set my day. (3) A balanced diet with plenty of organic vegetables and fruit. My family really avoids fried foods, excess sugar and anything GMO.
What’s your favorite part about running Elanveda? Right now is a really exciting time for us because we just launched a whole new look, and we’re thrilled to have beautiful packaging that mirrors the quality and uniqueness of our products. We’ve been around for nine years and have seen a lot of change in the industry, and it’s been so rewarding to ride the waves. The fact that my wife and son have helped and witnessed the effort makes it that much sweeter.
Of the products you make, which is your favorite? This is a tough one. The Re-Flex Essential Oil Blend is probably my favorite because I’m active, 46 years old, and – as a competitive athlete – I have plenty of soreness. Re-Flex is an organic Ayurvedic formula that’s great for relieving tired and stressed muscles and joints at the end of the day. That being said, I also love taking the Triphala Cleanse Supplement when I feel like I need a detox!
What sets Elanveda apart from other lines on the market today? We manufacture, distribute and market organic and natural healthcare products for whole body wellness, all in California. We’re really proud of our roots here in California, and we strive to have products that are the highest quality on the market.
What’s a trend in the wellness/beauty industry you’d like to see grow? I’d like to see wider acceptance of organic and natural healthcare products. When we started Elanveda the word “organic” was a joke. We have been trained to think that pharmaceutical drugs, antibiotics, etc. are traditional medicine, when in fact, Ayurveda has been around for more than 5000 years.
