K P Namboodiri
Company History :
K.P.Namboodiri’s Ayurvedics, is a fast growing company based in Thrissur District of Kerala State. Its branded product “Dantadhavanachoornam” traces its beginning to some eight decades back, when its founder K.Pothayan Namboodiri (K.P.Namboodiri) obtained a unique Ayurvedic formulation from an erstwhile royal family. After his demise in 1957, K.Raman Namboodiri, his second son, steered the company and established the business in the whole of Kerala by competing with Multi-Nationals. Sri K.Bhavadasan, the third generation of the family, had to take over the Company in the year 2000 in his early thirties, on the unexpected and early demise of his father Shri Raman Namboodiri.
Products: After 82 years of business in single product viz. “Danatadhavanachoornam”, in variant and different packings, K.P.Namboodiri’s added one more oral product with the name “K.P.Namboodiri’s Ayurvedic Tooth Paste” during 2007. Marketed under the same popular brand name of K.P.Namboodiri’s , the tooth paste also comes in different grammages with revamped logo under the concept of “Stronger, by Nature”, reflecting the company’s new vision. Knowing the pulse of younger generation the Company launched another quality product in tooth paste with the brand name “K.P.Namboodiri’s Ayurvedic GEL Tooth Paste”. These products were well accepted in the market in a very short time.
Our Toothpaste contains inter alia natural extracts of Black pepper which is clinically proven for its anti-bacterial powers; Amla-a rich source of Vitamin C with natural astringent properties; Clove-the time-tested remedy for toothache etc. K.P.Namboodiri's also came out with generic products like "Dahamukthi", a health drink, and "Vasana Bhasmam" (scented vibhoothi).
The Company was anxious to extent its services in the areas of hair case and skin care products. In this process it launched ayurveda based shampoo (both regular and anti-dandruff) and hair oil during July, 2010. These products also stood for quality with reasonable pricing and were well accepted in the market in a very short time.
Company’s desire to enter into skin care products was full-filled in October, 2010 when it launched “K.P.Namboodiri’s Ayurvedic Soap” in three different variants – Sandal, Sandal + Turmeric, and Aandal + Ramacham. Customers distinguished these products also by its quality and price.
