Following the prescriptions and formulations from the ancient Ayurvedic texts, we combine the richness of Ayurveda with the sensibilities of the contemporary, discriminating consumer to provide a luxurious experience and glowing, healthy skin.
Enchanted by Vedic philosophy and spirituality and the depth of knowledge Ayurveda offered, Shweta started practicing its prescriptions by creating number of formulations for personal use and shared with close friends. Encouraged, she undertook five years of training in Ayurveda in Vedika Global where Ayurveda is taught in the classical Gurukul style.
There, in addition to learning the principles and practices of Ayurveda, she was able to create and finesse formulations for her skin care products under the tutelage of some of the foremost experts in the field. She realized that, Ayurveda, for all it had to offer, remained confined to the back-alleys as alternative medicine and remained unattractive and out of reach as lifestyle to contemporary consumers. With a diploma in fashion merchandising from Paris Fashion Institute and the experiences gained from a number of years of working in high-end luxury retail, Shweta was determined to bring out the best Ayurveda has to offer to the discriminating and conscious consumer. Thus was born Laavanya.
Our goal is to provide our customers a natural approach to skincare that is at once traditional and modern. We aim to transform your mundane daily rituals to luxurious experiences and make the journey as enjoyable as the destination.
We started out making handcrafted bath products such as cold-pressed both soaps and Himalayan bath salts. After a long and arduous research and development process working closely with herbalists, botanists andmicrobiologists in one of the finest laboratories in Nepal, an entire range of products was developed. All along the way, we have made utmost effort to use local herbs and minerals, local manufacturers and artisans, and eco-friendly processes and presentations.
