Our Story

Tale of our Origin

Kanttiveda was born out of need to develop 100% natural products and bringing a revolution in skincare and haircare industry. We at Kanttiveda strive to develop CHEMICAL FREE, NATURAL AND PLANT BASED handcrafted SKINCARE and HAIRCARE products with no added preservatives, colours and fragrances. Use of quality ingredients, tried and tested old age traditional recipes and tender human touch forms the basis of all our formulations.

By the time we introduce them to this world, so much effort and research work is done on them that they become no less than a baby to Kanttiveda. So, we lovingly name each one of them.

 Rich and elaborate knowledge of our ancestors about vast flora of Indian Sub-Continent really comes in handy when we explore the elaborate world of various exotic plants for essentially natural and absolutely chemical free skincare and haircare product making. Present day renowned Auyrvedacharyas of Indian-SubContinent and detailed ancient Indian texts/literatures such as Charak Samhita, Bhaisajya Ratnavali and many more, are the guiding lights for our each handcrafted piece of product.

Our all ingredients are sourced from across Indian Sub-Continent. The dynamic range of roots, shoots, flowers, leaves, barks, buds, seeds, gums and resins comprises of some rare and exotic ones found only in the lap of Himalayan forests. While some can be found at your kitchen counter, others are sourced from forests of Western Ghats and directly from farmers.

 Talking about the quality of our products, we strongly believe in creating absolutely chemical free products with pure ingredients. When it comes to processes and practices, we strictly follow step by step traditional ways of ‘lepa making’, ‘ubtan making’, ‘snehpaka’ etc in order to provide our customers with the most authentic recipes and formulations. To keep our products authentic to their core, we cover that extra mile insuring purity of raw material, hygienic powdering and storing of raw materials along with the use of invariable traditional recipes to curate our every single handcrafted piece of product.

To keep a check on purity levels of our ingredients and final products alike, we take extra care at every step and finally get them tested from NABL accredited labs in India. Our products are so pure that they have a downside of limited self-life. While some can last upto 1 year, others can only last up to 2-3 months even when refrigerated.

Back to How it all started

For Leela, it all started due to dire need of something authentic to help her with her skin and hair woos. Leela had dandruff and acne issues from past 10 years and having tried everything available in the market, for her it seemed to be a dead-end. One day while going through the old books from her granddad's mini-library, she stumbled upon some Ayurveda books. An avid reader from childhood and a scientific researcher by heart and profession, she formulated some products for her hair and face.

Kanttiveda Bhringtailam

After a very long time my search for good hair oil ended when I got introduced to Kanttiveda Bhringtailam. It not only rejuvenated my dull and thinning hair but also darkened them. Now I do not need to colour my grey hair every forthnight which is a great relief. Thak You Kanttiveda for such completely natural yet effective hair tonic.

Kanttiveda Aamritailam- Anti hairfall oil

Due to hard water, my really thick hair started to fall and I could feel my hair locks thinning day by day and I had developed a small bald patch. When I started using Aamritailam Anti-Hairfall Oil, initially I could not feel any relief but to my surprise within 2 months of continueous use my bald patch got covered with small new hairs. Since then I am using Aamritailam hair oil and i m free from all hair woos and guess what, it is non-sticky and very light in texture.

Kanttiveda Amritailam-Anti Dandruff hair oil

This is the only cure I found for my severe dandruff issues that to in the form of a hair oil. Liked this product very much. I would love to recommend this hair oil to anyone who is suffering from Dandruff issues.

The Naming Ritual

Each of our products get a specific name for themselves in accordance to their GUNA aka qualities. By the time we introduce them to this world, so much effort and research work is done on them that they become no less than a baby to Kanttiveda. So, we lovingly name each one of them.
