Innovating Beauty: Sejal Patel’s Journey from Mother’s Love to Pharmacist-Backed Formulations
Hear from Sejal about the many challenges she faced along the way including in finding the right lab to scale her formulations, issues she had with packaging, supply chain difficulties, and more. Plus her views on the importance of having great partners to navigate these challenges.
Sejal’s unique approach to formulation involves combining her background as a pharmacist with her heritage of Indian and Arabic herbs. She created a proprietary phyto-medicinal complex for each of her products, focusing on improving hydration, calming irritation, and addressing hyperpigmentation. She ensures that her formulations are clinically tested, working with a lab in the UK that grows human skin and allows for molecular-level testing to assess the efficacy of her products.
Despite the challenges, Sejal’s passion, tenacity, and dedication to developing safe and effective products have propelled Plantkos forward. She continues to research and innovate, with plans to introduce new products that meet the same high standards.
