Prithika Parthasarthy the founder of "LAVAL" once was a distributor of a luxury skincare brand in Bengaluru when she met a near-fatal accident.
The mishap not only threatened her life but also put her career in jeopardy. After being hospitalized for four months, she had to bear the side effects of steroids and medication. Terrible rashes and acne all over her face shattered her. How could she represent a skincare brand when her skin looked like that, she wondered.
Suggestions from all corners poured in for her to go for chemical skincare treatments or even plastic surgery. Anyone else in her situation might have relented. But Prithika did not.
She said a firm no to the use of chemicals on her skin. She tried several brands that claimed to be organic, but nothing matched her expectations. So then she turned to her mother and grandmother for their herbal skin care recipes. And in due course of time, her skin found relief in those Ayurvedic remedies at home. Using natural products for self-care renewed not only her skin but also her confidence. Pleased with the results, she got determined to promote the idea of “loving oneself naturally.”
That is how the brand ‘Laval’ came into being.
Founded on the core concepts of life (water and love), LAVAL manufactures natural and organic products. LAVAL is a Bangalore based Ayurvedic essential brand, which used to go as Ava, but now they are all fresh with a new name and new mission to make the world “honestly beautiful.”
