Dr. Alpa Patel is a pediatrician, who has retired from clinical practice, a biochemist, mother of 2, and now, CEO & CoFounder of Luvanya. After completing her Bachelors in Biochemistry, Alpa worked as a biochemist for a short time, learning to identify and separate chemicals in pharmaceutical waste for recycling, before going on to medical school and a pediatric residency. She and her husband, an Internal Medicine physician, settled in CT after marriage and started their family medical practice together. Unfortunately, during the 15 years she spent growing her medical practice and raising her two children, Alpa also dealt with rare, chronic medical conditions. After suffering for years with severe health issues, chronic illnesses, surgeries, and treatments, she was forced to close her pediatric practice over 4 years ago and move her family across the country.
Once she realized that the treatments were doing more harm than good, and were also damaging her skin, she turned to researching botanicals, natural oils and ayurvedic ingredients to treat herself. By adopting a holistic lifestyle, using meditation, and nutrition Dr. Alpa regained the strength she needed. She used ayurvedic and plant based ingredients in both topical form to rejuvenate skin, as well as in homemade juices, to revive her health at the cellular level. By utilizing her biochemistry background, not only was she able to turn her skin back to life, but she was also able to formulate simple, safe skincare solutions for all of her family. That’s when she knew she had something to share with the world, and there came the birth of Luvanya, a 100% clean, vegan, non – toxic skincare brand, made for the health of your skin, which combines Science with Nature for the most visible and effective results! Other than her efforts with Luvanya, Dr Alpa enjoys painting, meditating, spending time with family and spending time in nature.
