Beauty + Health + Empowerment
MORE THAN SKIN CARE
We empower women to focus on skin health and beauty unbound from society's unrealistic expectations.
Skin Care vs. Skin Health
You’ve heard of skin care, but there’s so much more to healthy skin than what you can see on the surface. Most people start their skin care journey without understanding or measuring their skin health.
Kalvera's Skin Therapists analyze your skin, and prescribe customized treatments to nourish and stimulate the skin, tracking your skin health progress digitally over time.
Our founders built Kalvera with the idea that beauty should be unbound from the expectations and insecurities the beauty industry has put upon people.
Everyone is beautiful when they have healthy skin and a healthy attitude towards themselves.
Our goal is to help you find confidence in your own skin, by providing you with clean products and high-tech treatments that are medically effective at restoring your skin's health.
Founded by sibling co-founders who both survived cancer.
FOUNDER & CEO
Dr. Kalpana Sundar
Dr. Kalpana Sundar is an entrepreneur, speaker, and has been a Board Certified Physician for 20+ years. She is fueled by a philosophy that true beauty comes from within and is enhanced by healthy skin.
Dr. Kalpana founded Kalvera after a life-changing battle with cancer, which sparked her investigation into cancer-causing chemicals in products we rely on daily, starting with her skin.
She found that products from well-known brands were full of chemicals linked to cancer and that most mainstream brands are not transparent about their ingredients, or who is really behind their companies.
CO-FOUNDER & COO
Slade is a seasoned startup entrepreneur and an advocate for under-represented entrepreneurs (Women, People of Color, and LGBTQ+).
Slade, like his sister, is a cancer survivor who is passionate about people being confident in their own skin and defining their own beauty in life. Through Kalvera, he is working to shift the beauty industry's focus to skin health and mental well being.
Prior to co-founding Kalvera, Slade spent 20+ years in startup leadership roles in Marketing, HR, Operations, Strategy, Sales, Software, and Product Development.

Clean, Effective, Cruelty-Free Products
Our co-founder, Dr. Kalpana Sundar, is a physician who is also a cancer survivor. This means we painstakingly create the most effective and non-toxic formulations to enhance skin health both above and under the skin. That means NO silicones, drying alcohols, formaldehyde, phthalates, synthetic dyes, parabens, sulfates, PEG compounds, MEA / DEA / TEA, or EDTA.
We are PETA and Leaping Bunny certified cruelty-free, because we believe there is no justification for harming animals for human skin health.
We balance purpose + profit to create social change and opportunities for Women, BIPOC, and LGBTQ+ communities.
Our mission is to help everyone find confidence in their own skin, and one of the ways we do that is by promoting and supporting systemic change, equality, equity, and justice. We seek to create opportunities and systemic change for women, BIPOC, and LGBTQ+ communities.
We believe that everyone is beautiful regardless of size, color, orientation, disability, or gender. And should live life with equal opportunity and equal safety.
Empowering Through Community
We are launching Women, BIPOC, and LGBTQ+ focused workshops for personal and professional growth, and peer networking.
