Our Philosophy and Mission

Our Mission

Our mission is to create products that uplift the body, mind and spirit with zip, zest and rejuvenation. Spice Pharm is dedicated to exploring and sharing the profound intelligence of nature's designs, delivering all-natural, ethically sourced plant-based formulations that are inspired by thousands of years of healing wisdom and backed with growing reams of research.

Our elixir products address root causes of fatigue: stress, adrenal fatigue, hormonal imbalances and inflammation, and help rebuild vitality and core energy. These tasty superfood tonics combine spices, adaptogenic herbs, coconut and cacao to keep you energized, focused, calm and uplifted.

 

Our Promise and Vision, Embedded in Our Logo

Spice Pharm Logo
We chose the ancient symbols of the Lotus and Flower of Life as the emblems for our logo, and to communicate our philosophy and commitment.

The Lotus stands for purity, as we are committed to using only the finest and purest ingredients for our products. We individually vet every ingredient for its safety, efficacy and quality. We will never use ingredients that are non-sustainable, ineffective, or harmful, nor will we use cheap fillers or anything toxic or artificial.

The Flower of Life contains within it secrets of creation and connection. Found in ancient cultures all over the world, it contains basic information of all living things and is the visual expression of the connections of life that run through all beings. We chose the sacred geometry contained within the Flower of Life to express how we see that everything is connected in infinite large and smallness, and that the center of the universe is everywhere and that it is also within me and you. Each circle can represent each person, plant, animal, and everything that exists is connected in life. We believe that our choices affect our lives and others, and everything comes full circle in every choice we make. Our vision is to tap the infinite wisdom of creation and connection to uplift and transform the body, mind and spirit.

Sustainability

Green system of wellness

Spice Pharm creates products that help nurture the planet, without compromising it. We seek to conduct our business in the most sustainable fashion possible by providing socially friendly, premium natural health solutions with minimal impact on the ecosystem and without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their needs.

Our philosophy is steeped in Ayurveda, the great Indian System of Medicine is built on the fundamental philosophy that spices, herbs and medicinal plants work in harmony with body and nature. Spice Pharm is a brand inspired by Nature, and a company that believes in the spirit of eco-entrepreneurship.

Powder mixes: you add the water so we don't ship it.

Spice Elixir Powdered Beverages
From the very beginning, we envisioned a line of powder products as the most low-impact format for distributing the goodness of our botanical creations. By not shipping unnecessary water, we save enormous shipping weight and therefore fuel costs and environmental impact of transportation. 

Our ingredients: how are they farmed, who grows them and how are they processed?

Choosing to make Spice Pharm products from plant-based ingredients is a planet-positive step in itself. Sure, we could stop there, but we see every ingredient choice as an opportunity to do better. We consider many factors in choosing our ingredients, balancing how they’re farmed, and who grows them, and how they are processed.

Spices:

Super Spices
  • We have carefully vetted and selected direct spice importers that are dedicated to sourcing certified organic ingredients and are committed to all aspects of sustainability and social responsibility.
  • They use a combination of the most cutting edge steam and dry heat technologies, to ensure complete food safety, both by destroying all pathogens, and at the same time avoiding all forms of hazardous pesticides, fungicides and radiation.
  • They focus on sourcing ingredients where they are indigenous; resulting in reliable production and a high quality product.
  • They partner with farmers in quality of life initiatives and ensure they are paid fair wages.

 

Cacao:

  • We use Cacao Arriba Beans that are harvested from the native-born heirloom Ecuadorian species named Arriba Nacional-Fino de Aroma. This variety of Cacao is considered worldwide to have the finest floral aroma and flavor profile, as well as the highest amount of bioavailable nutrients and minerals. The farmers use meticulous sustainable organic farming methods. They nurture the trees, hand pick the cacao pods, and separate the beans for fermenting. After a carefully controlled fermentation process the cacao beans are then sun dried and stone ground.
Raw Cacao

Coconut:

Vegan Coconut Milk Powder
  • Coconut trees are renowned for supporting the environment, acting as soil builders, providing shade for understory crops to be planted, and providing balance to the soil and surroundings. Our coconut sugar supplier is a leader in sustainability, working hard to undo the damage that nearly destroyed Indonesia's farming community. They help take farmers back to their roots and promote responsible crops and ancient practices that are gentle on the fragile ecosystem of Indonesia.
  • We searched for over 4 years to locate a 100% vegan coconut milk powder. Our supplier is the first to use sugar esters as a plant-based processing aid for drying coconut milk, replacing the dairy protein casein found in almost all other coconut milk powders.

Ashwagandha:

  • Our selection of ashwagandha is based not only on its clinical efficacy for benefiting multiple systems in the body, but also for its eco-friendly characteristics. Ashwagandha is an extremely eco-friendly plant that helps in sustained use of the environment and restoration of degraded lands. Drought tolerance, short harvest time and low water requirements characterize its eco-friendly strengths. Ashwagandha not only upgrades the quality of health of humans, but also the quality of degraded soils of Mother Earth. Ayurvedic practitioners hold it in great reverence and call it a Jeevaniya dravya, which means "life sustainer."
  • The entire production of the particular KSM-66® extract we use employs principals of Green Chemistry. It is free from chemicals and synthetic solvents/excipients, avoiding the use of any petro-based chemicals.

Sustainable Relationships

We live in a complex world with so many environmental concerns that no company can no longer ignore and not accept responsibility of the role we all play. By choosing partners whom we admire and respect, Spice Pharm is committed to helping find solutions to concerns we all share about our planet.

We want our ingredient choices to contribute to the well-being of our customers -- and our suppliers and farmers. The ingredients we use, like spices, cacao, coconut milk and coconut sugar, can’t be grown locally, or even in North America. We take our relationships with global partners seriously and choose them with great care based on social, economic, and environmental responsibility. By working together, we can make a positive difference for the future of our stakeholders and planet.


Packaging

Spice Elixir Pouches
We have given much thought to the pros, cons and trade-offs involved in our packaging selection. We currently use multi-serving stand-up pouches made from either metallized plastic film or aluminum foil.  Weighing the pros and cons, we determined that despite the fact that they are not recycled or biodegradable, they did have redeeming values:

Going forward, we continue to seek any viable alternatives as they are available.

The Origins of Spice Pharm

Kitty Wells, Spice GeekAfter bouts of deep fatigue, Kitty Wells had a vision for a new kind of delicious beverage that would build core energy rather than sap it like her beloved coffee. Starting with a glimmer of a vision, she became obsessed with the art and science of spices and herbs, and came up with formulas that were unlike anything else on the market.

Frank Schwartz, COOHaving spent two decades in the high tech halls of Silicon Valley, Kitty and her husband, Frank Schwartz, decided to pursue their passion for natural products. In 2010, Kitty formed Spice Pharm to  monetize her vision and passion.

Frank helped make it a reality with his deep backgrounds in automated manufacturing and IT services. He took over the manufacturing side, scaling up from small batches, as well as the practical execution of all things digital. 

After scouring the globe for exactly the right ingredients, they launched the Golden Goddess® family of Spice Elixirs to the world in 2012.  In October 2015, these Spice Elixirs won the coveted SupplySide® West Editor's Choice Award for Weight Management. Then in November 2015, Spice Pharm's Elixirs were selected as one of the Top 3 Most Exciting Brands in San Francisco by the Green Festival.
