MARTHA AND CURT VAN INWEGEN
Life Elements is the life’s work of California based couple Martha and Curt Van Inwegen who started the company with a few simple ingredients; conviction, honesty, available resources and a disregard for perfection. They are certain that their products are better, safer, and less harmful than any other body and skincare company. Martha grew up in Mexico and some of her earliest and strongest memories are hanging onto her Grandmother’s apron, following her everywhere, as she began to learn how to make herbal salves and tinctures. Martha would go into the hills to collect flowers with her Grandfather and into the garden to collect herbs with her Grandmother. Together, they’d make tinctures and medicine in the kitchen. Using Life Elements means using ancient remedies from a lineage of incredible women. From the get-go, Martha was fascinated by the synergy of ingredients and she has become a product alchemist out of sheer practice and curiosity, and is fueled by the magic of helping others. Life Elements uses the highest quality organically USA grown, broad spectrum, hemp derived CBD oil and as many natural ingredients in their products as is humanly possible. The products are never tested on animals. Traceability of every single ingredient in their supply chain is of the utmost importance which continues their positive differentiation in a market which is crowded with inferior products. Most of their packaging is made from glass or recyclable material and they are striving to find solutions for the remaining small percentage that currently isn’t.
