The Satliva Experience - Part 1

Hey guys!

How are you doing today? I have been raving about my US trip in my earlier posts. I had an amazing time out there! But do you know what I came back with? Apart from some goodies for my loved ones, a serious goof up with my circadian rhythm and some cherished memories, a very stubborn tan and frizzy hair! I am not even kidding! The tan is so disturbing and my hair has lost its shine and bounce! :(

A week after I got back, I received an e-mail from Harshaa, Satliva's Managing Partner with an event invite to the launch of Satliva. Well, what is Satliva? Satliva has a wide range of wellness products for hair and skin care that are made using hemp seeds sourced from the Himalayas and other essential oils. What is amazing about these products is that they are organically grown and are 100% chemical free. This seemed like a great deal for me and exactly what I was looking for at this point of time!





Namrata and Harshaavardhan, a dynamic husband-wife duo, who are engineers by qualification and have years of experience in various business verticals, decided to start this venture of their own. They are immensely passionate about building their brand and know their products in and out. After years of research and testing, they are finally ready to bring Satliva to the market. The event started with some refreshments and a brief overview of the products and the importance of hemp seeds in our day-to-day beauty products. I had a fabulous time as I met all of my other blogger friends and we had some interesting discussions and knowledge sharing sessions.





For those of you who are still wondering what hemp is, it's a non-drug variety of the Cannabis plant and it's grown mostly for the industrial used of it's derived products. And it's not the same as marijuana. (So, no, you can't get high on hemp! :p) This won't have any such after-effects and it's not illegal either. Hemp seed oil has a variety of health benefits and are extensively used in the manufacture of health foods, organic body care products and other nutraceuticals.

The best part of the event was that they literally showed us how they manufacture soaps! I had never seen something being manufactured so closely before! I felt like I was in Dexter's lab or something! :D The men at work started by mixing measured quantities of various oils and fluids with hemp to make the soap. The potion was heated and constantly blended for over 30 minutes. Oh yes, they did all of this manually! Once the mixture was ready to be molded into cakes of soap, it was poured into a tray and finally gorgeous pieces of soaps were carved out!







We were also asked to sniff and test some of their products and the event ended with all of us getting a cute goodie basket with products of our choice that we could use and review. I had never been directly exposed to essential oils made of carrot seed, lavender, spearmint and what not! It was a fascinating experience to actually feel the essence and understand the benefits of the same. The instant I got home from the event, I dabbed some of the creams on to my sun-tortured skin. In my upcoming posts about Satliva, you will be seeing a complete honest analysis of how these products affected my skin and hair and if it's really worth buying or not!



Until then, do check out their website and see if you like anything!

Love,
