Shanti Wellness: 60-Second Summary
Shanti, the Sanskrit word for peace and tranquility, is the guiding inspiration behind Shanti Wellness, a chic blender of full spectrum CBD with some of nature’s most famous adaptogens. Shanti looks the part with beautiful branding and a positive message; they can definitely talk the talk. However, in order to issue them more badges, we need to see them walking the walk by backing up their products with 100% quality ingredients and displaying independent lab results.
Shanti Wellness Brand Review
Shanti Wellness markets themselves as an apothecary, though they never explicitly say that, by using adaptogenic ingredients like curcumin (turmeric) and ashwagandha in their blends and exuding that feel. The founders supposedly experienced chronic anxiety and stress courtesy of the weight of modern life and sought natural answers in Ayurvedic herbs. Through their research they encountered CBD, experienced the benefits themselves, and decided to include it in their artisanal blends. The team has over 20 years of experience between them in the holistic field, and the brand portrays a decidedly holistic essence. But we take issue with the absence of test results. While Shanti Wellness claims that each batch is tested by an independent laboratory, these results are not available online nor even offered upon request. We are also unsure of their extraction method.
The Shanti Wellness full spectrum product line is beautiful, aesthetically speaking, with simple, sleek packaging, and they do not exclusively sell CBD products. For our purposes, we will only discuss the products containing full spectrum CBD extract. First up are the Balance Premium Hemp CBD tinctures with full spectrum CBD oil, hempseed oil, grapeseed oil, peppermint, and stevia. The Soothe Hemp CBD Body Balm features a delicious blend of skin-loving ingredients like eucalyptus oil. The last CBD product category is the softgels that come in two varieties: one with curcumin and one without. The softgels contain water-soluble nanoparticles for better absorption, but they also contain polysorbate-20 and polysorbate-80. These are emulsifying agents that improve consistency, and although they’re relatively low risk, these chemicals are prone to contamination, specifically with a compound called ethylene oxide, an extremely high-risk additive to be avoided at all costs. We simply don’t understand the inclusion of these questionable ingredients. We see softgels offered by most CBD businesses, but the majority do not include these substances. Unnecessary to say the least.
There’s no evidence of Shanti Wellness being actively involved in the charity space, and we don’t observe them doing anything innovative. Thus, the company as it stands today receives two of five badges until more action is taken.
Bottom Line – Shanti Wellness is a beautiful-looking brand, but needs a bit of work to back up their pure aesthetic with purity in their products. A good starting place would involve making batch test results available and reexamining their inclusion of emulsifying agents in their softgels.
