WHO WE ARE
Founded by Dahlia Kelada in 2012, SALVE (aka Salve Naturals) was invented to create natural and healthy topicals that actually do something. With her introduction to plant-based medicine in 2006, Dahlia was eager to share with the community the remedies that she invented that helped her. She was the first to create 100% natural plant-based topical medicines that are registered with the FDA as OTCs.
Prior to starting SALVE, Dahlia had a 20 year career in product commercialization, brand management and marketing. She has since earned a Master of Science in Health Science, Integrative Medicine from The George Washington University School of Medicine and Health Sciences. Dahlia is also an integrative medicine (disease prevention) educator and professional speaker.
SALVE started at local farmers markets in the Houston area where the brand gained a loyal following. Since then, Dahlia set out to support other businesses with their brand development by offering private label, bulk, custom formulation and professional use.
As a cosmetic and cosmetic drug manufacturer, SALVE primarily serves B2B industries such as retailers, beauty and spa, health and medical, hemp farmers and CBD extractors. This website represents our B2B division of Salve Naturals.

We don't sell on our website because of the intellectual property of our business model and the complex formulation process. We begin developing products only after a mutual NDA and manufacturing agreement has been signed by the customer.
Yes, it's true ... we do not charge formulation fees, and we never will (unless you want to own the IP). Because of this, there is a high demand for our services. We dedicate a lot of time, resources and expertise to write each formula and ask that only serious inquiries be made.
