Kama Ayurveda is Kind.
Sadhev comes from artisanal ayurvaids whose roots go back to Kerala 200 years ago. Perfecting the art of Ayurveda generation after generation.
200-year-old lineage: Two centuries of wisdom in a bottle
Sadhev’s signature potions have their origins dating back to early 19th century- to a legacy carefully built by Ayurvedic healer and physician Brahmasree Cholayil Kunju Maami Vaidyar. The heritage of his recipes and treatments has been passed over three generations and is today the essence of Sadhev.
Sadhevana: the smell of pure Earth
Sadhev’s treatments are sourced from Sadhevana, our very own 80 acre sustainably grown organic sanctuary of exotic botanicals and foliage carefully cultivated in South India. Sadhevana has been blessed with a rare, fertile blend of three kinds of soil – red soil, sandy soil and gravel that has enabled the growth of a variety of crops, herbs, medicinal botanicals and exotic trees. Farmers of Sadhevana nurture the Earth with care, using sustainable farming practices steeped in ancient agricultural wisdom.
Cruelty Free. Beauty with a conscience
Sadhev offers socially responsible beauty and wellness care. The ingredients are 100% vegetarian and are sourced without harming the environment. The brand stands firmly against animal testing and ensures no harm to animals or nature all through the product journey- from sourcing the ingredients all through the supply chain, to the creation of the product till it reaches you.

Sadhev offers handcrafted luxury Ayurvedic care, inspired by nature. Each potion of Sadhev is infused with precious insights from traditional Ayurveda, delicately blended with pure ingredients, sourced responsibly and carefully from nature.

The people behind
The beginning is always from the roots: A journey with his mother to his ancestral home in the quaint town of Vallapad in Kerala, to pay respects to their forefather, Cholayil Kunju Maami Vaidyar, stirred the beginning of Sadhev for Lasakan Cholayil.
Renowned for his unconventional healing techniques during his time, Vaidyar was regarded as the doyen of Ayurveda for having created countless miraculous treatments and exceptional cures.
200 years later, a sunny afternoon walk in his ancestral hometown, by the meandering blue streams across the endless coconut groves sparked the idea of bringing the secrets and science of his forefather’s Ayurvedic experience for the modern connoisseur of today.
Lasakan’s flame grew brighter as he continued to fuel his ignited passion with a desire to bring to this world of noise, chaos, chemicals and plastics a solution from ancient wisdom that would restore, perfect inner balance and enchanting outer beauty.
Lasakan and his mother Jayadevi Cholayil launched Sadhev, a stirring curation of exotic beauty and wellness treatments in 2019. The luxury Ayurvedic care blissfully blends the science of wellness with the art of Ayurveda to create an inextricable symphony of the body, mind and soul.
Āsmi means “I am” and stands for modern Ayurvedic Lifestyle: pure, close to nature, individual and timeliness. Āsmi is TRUE AYURVEDA, CLIMATE POSITIVE and INCLUSIVE.
At the centre of our philosophy is the 5,000-year-old Indian healing art of Ayurveda. It is based on the five elements of nature and the three doshas that are individual to each person. We work exclusively with renowned Ayurveda experts to transfer the holistic teachings to our products.
In addition to a conscious approach to ourselves, a conscious approach to resources is important to us. Our actions are holistic, fair and climate-positive. Resource-saving production is particularly important to us. Our packaging materials are plant based and sourced locally.
We share the same values with our carefully selected partners to ensure a transparent supply chain with less CO2 emissions.
But we don’t just want to compensate the CO2 emissions, we also support the construction of a biogas plant in India. It enables the local people to cook without firewood and deliberately aims to end the deforestation of the surrounding forests.
In this way, we protect the environment and at the same time sustainably improve the quality of life. A win-win situation for all, which corresponds exactly to the values of Āsmi.

It all started by asking ‘Why’. Juicy Chemistry was born of Pritesh and Megha Asher’s relentless ability to question everything they knew about the world of beauty and personal care.
Right from when they founded Juicy back in 2014, they’ve completely transformed the landscape of organic and natural personal care in India, just by asking the right questions every step of the way. Because of this, they’ve managed to put together a truly efficacious range of 100% organic and natural beauty products with exciting and innovative Ayurvedic ingredients and formulations.
“Over several years, we’ve worked hard to make sure to question how best to bring nature to our customers in its most unadulterated form, from soil-to-shelf.
And it all started with asking ‘Why’.
We question everything we do, every formulation, ingredient, source, and every product’s efficacy.”
This is why we are the real deal:
When we decided to hunt for the highest authority that could evaluate our means and ways of doing what we do, all roads led us to ECOCERT.
ECOCERT is a prominent organic certification organization based in France, under which COSMOS is the highest global organic standard for the cosmetic industry.
After undergoing a rigorous audit, various farm visits, factory visits, soil tests, water tests, and recording of data, we made the cut. This means:
- We are environmentally friendly with our production and processing, - Human health and wellness is a priority in all our processes, - We work only with green chemicals and have cut out all petrochemicals, - We use natural resources responsibly, - All our packaging is eco-friendly and recyclable, - We truly have a clear absence of GMO (Genetically modified Organisms), - We actively respect biodiversity while going about our work.
We are proud our organic methods and products are truly beneficial to everyone involved, be it our workers, our partners, our customers, and the planet itself.
