Karolina Kurkova is a professional anomaly.
Supermodel, philanthropist, founder, mother of two. She does it all.
As one of the most successful supermodels of this generation, she first graced the covers of Vogue at just 16 years old. She’s walked for top fashion houses like Chanel, Prada, and Dior. After being in front of the camera for almost 20 years, Kurkova knows a thing or two about how to feel your best so you can look your best.
Despite her fast-paced fashion career,Kurkova came from a small town in the Czech Republic.
Weekends with her grandparents ranged from making homemade jam and pickles to homemade herbal cough syrup. Using ingredients from the land, making food from scratch, and creating natural herbal remedies, a holistic approach to life was normal for Kurkova.
At 19 years old, she began experimenting with holistic wellness herself, combining the natural techniques of her Grandmother with her own modern approaches to help her stay healthy and glowing as she modeled around the world.
Inspired by her parents to continuously learn and grow, Kurkova transformed her passion and belief in holistic well-being into an unstoppable children’s wellness company, Gryph & IvyRose, with her two partners, Rachel Finger and Orion Nevel.
Stocked at over 150 stores nationwide, Gryph & IvyRose is focused on creating innovative, natural products for children (and now adults) by combining traditional Chinese medicine with proven holistic approaches.
As the mother of two says, “It’s very simple: what you put in is what you’re gonna get out. It’s like the car—I always say, you know, you put bad gas and oil into the car, the car’s not going to perform well. The body is the same way.”
And don’t we want our kids to be able to feel their best?
The Start of Something Special
Both Kurkova’s partners in Gryph & IvyRose have holistic backgrounds as well.
Orion is an herbalist Kurkova had been seeing with her family. He worked alongside his father, who practices acupuncture and is an expert in Chinese medicine.
While Rachel embraced alternative holistic healing when her premature twin daughters struggled with their health in their first year of life.
Desperate to get away from potent drugs provided to her by numerous physicians, drugs that didn’t seem to be helping much anyway, she turned to Orion for help.
After just a week of seeing Orion, her daughters were finally able to do simple but elusive routines like sleep and go to the bathroom. Profoundly in awe of the drastic and quick improvement by these natural approaches, Rachel expressed how they should “create products that are modern and approachable for all modern parents...and their children.”
That is where Gryph & IvyRose was born.
Wholesome well-being from the inside out.
From bath and body products to probiotics, Gryph & IvyRose creates natural, holistic products for both kids and adults, optimizing health today to maintain health in the future.
Is Gryph & IvyRose Worth It?
Gryph & IvyRose was developed by parents who saw the amazing benefits of herbal applications first-hand.
The herbs they used are not new and foreign, but rather have been used for thousands of years to prevent, treat, and cure. Gryph & IvyRose adds their own twist to these concoctions to ensure they meet the growing demands of modern children.
For Kurkova, a holistic approach to health was a no-brainer. Growing up, she knew the importance of quality, clean ingredients and integrated those into her own kids’ wellness routines.
Yes, western medicinal approaches are essential.
However, it’s also important to start healthy rituals in our kids early on. It’s important to give them the tools and the knowledge to enjoy a lifetime of well-being.
Their bath and body products help support the skin’s natural biome.
The probiotics help to support a healthy gut biome.
And the elixirs help with everything from improving sleep to balancing mood.
Gryph & IvyRose Makes Holistic Approachable
As trends steer more and more towards natural approaches, parents everywhere still are left unimpressed by the level of performance of these “natural” products. We’re often left sacrificing effectiveness for just “good enough” performance in the name of health.
This is why I’m not surprised when such an effective, approachable brand like Gryph & IvyRose has blown up the way they have. Not only are their products effective but they are also vegan, USDA organic, natural, and pediatrician approved. Win-win.
Since my initial introduction to Gryph & IvyRose, it feels like I’ve seen them everywhere.
Byrdie, W Magazine, Shape, Haute Living, Parents Magazine, Oprah Magazine, you name it.
They’ve been selling out several times, and it’s been tough to keep their products on the shelves.
Are Their Products Really Worth The Hype?
After learning about Kurkova’s background and the mission behind Gryph & IvyRose, I knew I had to give it a try.
I decided to grab the Whole Family Health Package.
The package arrived in a few days, and I decided to try them out that weekend!
First up, the probiotics. My son loved this “chocolatey treat,” especially in the morning! He loved the subtle sweet chocolate flavor and even started asking for “his hearts” every morning.
I loved how after a few weeks, he seemed to have more of a bounce in his step, his mood had improved, and he even mentioned how “his tummy finally felt better” after weeks and weeks of him barely being able to sleep due to an upset stomach.
As a mom, these chocolate probiotics are a total win.
Next up, bath products.
After an unusually chaotic, tantrum-filled day, I decided we could all use a little chill time.
I ran him a bath and hoped for the best. You really never know what you’re going to get when it comes to bath time with him. Soon the tsunami-sized waves started flooding water over the tub, and the bath toys were strewn everywhere.
I prepared myself for another insane aqua experience, shielding what I could of myself with my largest blue towel.
I took out the That’s A Wrap Body Wash. As soon as I put it on him, he seemed to settle. I’m not sure if it was the subtle scent of wild chrysanthemum or the gentle lather on his skin.
After the Daily Embrace Shampoo & Conditioner, he was tame. He was playing with his pouring cups, seemingly calm and content.
I didn’t want to jinx it, so I gave him five more minutes then got him out.
Cuddled up in his warm towel with a cup of milk, he was peaceful, while I was shocked.
Just when I thought it couldn’t get more magical, he slept like a baby that night.
After a few weeks, his eczema had cleared up, and he no longer pulled and scratched at his clothes.
I thought it must have been a flook or some kind of magic. But then I remembered, it’s not crazy. The herbs and approaches used to make each of these products have been meticulously curated and created over thousands of years to help kids and adults just like my son. Gryph & IvyRose just made it more available.
Gryph & IvyRose is the real deal. I’m so happy to finally find a company that I can trust and feel good about. Not only are they natural, but they are also effective. Rarely a combination I’ve found when experimenting with natural products.
As much as I’d love to be the mom who rushes to her garden, picks the perfect herbs, and handmakes each concoction, meal, or supplement, I just don’t have the time.
Luckily, I do have Gryph & IvyRose.
