DISCOVER GRYPH & IVYROSE
Gryph & IvyRose was created by 3 passionate parents who wanted to craft a diverse product line that would support the body’s immune function, present high performance and lasting results, as well as offer daily regimens to address the health challenges children and parents face. We are committed to enhancing families lives with herbal wellness in a sustainable and accessible way.
A WORD FROM THE CO-FOUNDER
I went into labor at 23 weeks pregnant & quickly found out my babies had Twin to Twin Transfusion Syndrome (TTTS), a potentially fatal prognosis. What happened in the coming weeks was a whirlwind with multiple surgeries and weeks spent on bedrest in a hospital before ultimately giving birth to twin girls at 28 weeks, weighing in at just over 1 lb each. They spent months in the NICU, with medical concerns such as bleeding on the brain, compromised immune systems and extreme sleep and digestive issues.
I was frustrated with the lack of progress made with pharmaceutical remedies once they came home, so around 9 months I began taking the girls to acupuncture and giving them prescribed herbal blends from an herbalist with over 20 years of experience in traditional Chinese medicine and Ayurvedic traditions. I immediately saw success with the girls sleep patterns, digestion and moods and became an unexpected believer in the power of herbs.
THE EVER-CHANGING PARENTING JOURNEY
That belief, in collaboration with Orion (the herbalist) and Karolina (supermodel friend and genuine natural health seeker) - was how Gryph & IvyRose was born. We set out to create a collection of high-performance herbal and integrative health products for children and parents everywhere. Crafted to develop daily rituals for preventative and ongoing health, each modern formulation is steeped in thousands of years of traditional Chinese medicine and ayurvedic traditions.
We are passionate about the safety and effectiveness of our products and hope we can help along this ever-changing parenting journey.
We use TerraSkin® mineral paper on our probiotics and herbal elixirs. TerraSkin® doesn’t require harvesting trees, doesn’t use water (thus no water pollution), is naturally bright white (so requires no bleaching chemicals), and is made from calcium carbonate, an abundant natural mineral! Plus, these products are offered in beautiful glass containers that can be reused or recycled.
Our line of probiotics are all USDA certified organic and we use organic ingredients in our bath & body and elixirs whenever they are available. Due to the wild-grown nature of many of our herbal ingredients, certified organic options are not always available, but rest-assured we always source the safest and highest quality ingredients for our little ones and yours. Organic farming is good for the soil, avoids polluting groundwater, mitigates global warming, and always means no GMO’s.
Our products are not tested on animals and don’t contain them either! Vegetarian friendly products are free of animal-derived ingredients obtained as the result of slaughter. Most of our products are Vegan as well, meaning they contain no animal-derived ingredients, including honey or beeswax. The reason all of our products are not vegan is because our probiotics are cultured on dairy.
We source herbs with quality, purity, and efficacy in mind. This includes 1) identifying each herb for the correct species and 2) making sure that it is tested for known toxins like fungicides, herbacides, and other chemicals sometimes used in the farming process. Identifying the right specifies is crucial because two leaves can look similar but the correct species is going to contain the right phytochemicals to make a difference in your life. These herbs are processed in an FDA registered manufacturing facility that our Co-Founder Orion personally inspects regularly and has done so for more than a decade.
MADE WITHOUT HARSH CHEMICALS: PARABENS, SULFATES, AND PHTHALATES
Parabens can be bad for humans and the environment. They are believed to cause cancer, disrupt hormone function, and are linked to reproductive issues. They are washed into the sewage system and released into the environment as well. We stay away from parabens along with biome-stripping sulfates and phthalates that can affect reproduction and development.
