Certification for fair trade and responsible supply chains
Impact, special achievements & commitmentsBanyan Botanicals was born in 1996 out of a deep love for Ayurveda. Their mission is to help people achieve and maintain optimal health and well-being, which is fulfilled by:
- Empowering individuals to take personal responsibility for their physical, mental, and spiritual health through the wisdom of Ayurveda
- Producing the highest quality Ayurvedic health products using certified organic herbs that are sustainably sourced and fairly traded
- Educating, inspiring, and motivating their customers by creating free, high-quality educational content

They offer an extensive line of organic Ayurvedic health products, including herbal supplements, massage oils, powdered herbs, liquid extracts, and meal ingredients.

As a Certified B Corporation, Banyan is committed to creating positive social and environmental change. This can be seen in their programs like the Community Grant Fund, which supports people and projects that are making Ayurveda more accessible; their sponsorship of Ayurvedic medical camps to those in need; tracking their carbon emissions and actions to reduce them; their support and involvement in projects like the FairWild Initiative, which provides sustainable growing and harvesting practices along with fair wages to farmers; and more.

Banyan Botanicals is proud to be a part of the Fair for Life community of like-minded socially responsible companies.
