Czech-American model and actress, former Victoria’s Secret Angel, Vogue cover star and mother of three Karolina Kurková recently added the title co founder to her list of many accomplishments. In 2018, Karoliná (the genuine natural seeker), Rachel Finger (a twin mom) and Orion Nevel (the herbalist) launched a child-friendly wellness brand Gryph & IvyRose. Their goal: to create a collection of eco-friendly, high-performance skin, hair and body essentials that integrate the traditions of Chinese medicine with ayurvedic traditions for both children and parents.
While washing your hands with soap and water is preferred, using a hand sanitizer can help reduce the number of microbes you pick up between grocery runs and playground meet-ups. Gryph & IvyRose’s The Guardian Spray Hand Sanitizer is a lightweight, non-sticky spray sanitizer that combats germs and helps replenish moisture as it is infused with aloe. Plus, its TSA-approved size means you never have to remove it from your bag. $5.99 on GryphandIvyRose.com.
A single application of Gryph & IvyRose’s Seal the Deal Moisturizing Balm can turn into an all-out obsession. “Not only does it soothe and nourish pretty much any skin ailment — dry patches, eczema, cracked nails, rough cuticles, chapped lips, cracked heels, scars and stretch marks — I love using it with my newborn Luna Grace to prevent any diaper rash. I think of it as a secret weapon for skin, in an easy-to-take-with-you balm.” $49.00 on GryphandIvyRose.com.
The Mood Booster
Children can get overwhelmed — pushed to their limits of stress, restlessness and nervousness — and the mom in us just wants to alleviate the pressure of it all. Gryph & IvyRose’s Moody Blues helps mood support with nine carefully curated botanicals including Silk Tree Bark, Licorice and Poria. Plus, it comes in an easy-to-take-with-you dropper bottle. Simply mix with water or a non-citrus juice — or take it on its own. For children aged 2 to 12+. $22.50 on GryphandIvyRose.com.
Go With Your Gut
A big fan of the quick, daily routines, Karoliná goes by the mantra “the little things add up.” That is why she is a huge believer in Gryph & IvyRose’s Children’s Chocolate Probiotics. “Tobin (age 11) and Noah (age 5) love them because they taste great. I love them as they don’t need to be refrigerated. They are always in my bag.” Made with the finest raw, organic and fair-trade cacao, each chocolate tablet contains over 3 billion CFU’s of active probiotics and natural prebiotics. $29.00 on GryphandIvyRose.com.
