beauty unbound from society's unrealistic expectations.
Founded by Sister & Brother team who both survived cancer.
CO-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.
