 Lava Love is a line of all-natural bath and body products that harness the power of lava to help you detoxify and heal your body. We were so blown away by the positive health changes that we experienced from using clay to detoxify our bodies, that we felt compelled to start Lava Love and share them with you.

There are toxins in the air we breathe, the water we drink, the products we use and the food we eat.

FOOD AND ENVIRONMENTAL TOXINS CAN MAKE YOU SICK. Elisabeth, co-founder Lava Love was diagnosed with Lyme's disease at the age of 42 in 2008 right after the birth of her children.  Doctors told her that her immune system was compromised as the result of toxins she had been exposed to over her lifetime.

Elisabeth started bathing in clay weekly and changed her diet.  She felt so much better.  She shared it with Jen. She tried it for herself. They both felt so much better, they created Lava Love to share with all of you. It's simple: Detoxify your body with Lava Love bath and body products. 

 The three key ingredients in Lava Love products are: bentonite, zeolite and charcoal. Bentonite and zeolite are forms of lava (volcanic ash).

Lava is an amazing element. When finely ground and mixed with water it actually has a negative ion charge that binds with and removes positively charged toxins from the body.

Lava and charcoal have been used by every ancient culture to heal and rejuvenate the body.

CHARCOAL:  Scientific data shows that this ancient healing substance really does help purify the human body in a number of ways.

  • We need equipment to manufacture our products; including, without limitation, a micronizer for our pumice and our clay. 
  • We need equipment to enhance our shipping and distribution. 
  • We want to expand our product line. 
  •  We need an outside manufacturing facility. We have outgrown my kitchen and our garage, and my husband wants his work bench back. Plus, many retailers will not accept our products unless we have a commercial manufacturing facility. 
   
PLEASE HELP US WITH A PLEDGE, AND SHARE THE LOVE!
 

Risks and challenges

Risks and Challenges:

We’re so passionate about this project, that we’re committed to doing everything in our power to solve any challenges that may arise along the way – that’s a promise!

Here are a few risks and challenges that we can think of:

Product Manufacturing Delays: We've promised some products by December 2015. We’ve produced a small run of samples and we feel confident that a large production order will be successful; however, it is common that there could be unforeseen setbacks. There is a possibility depending on the volume, that there could be manufacturing delays.

Shipping Delays: Shipping a large number of products at once can be a daunting task for a small team. To help us with this challenge, we’ve segmented the shipping process into groups. Early birds will get their products first. Regular orders will get their products second.

Lost Packages: We’ve had some experience shipping products internationally, including lost packages. Even if it means sending out a product three times, we are committed to make sure it gets into your hands.
