I´m Elin, a, Icelandic sailing enthusiast and founder of Wellness Lab. My story began in 2013 when I started sailing in Lisbon. I became fascinated by the fitness and endurance of the every day sailor. It inspired me to start a range of sports and health products that I could take myself as a part of my sailing lifestyle. I wanted to create products that contained no preservatives or artificial ingredients but could also be added to my favourite drinks and meals. I wanted my customers to be able to boost their recipes by adding raw ingredients from Wellness Lab to their smoothies, fruit juices, tea or just coffee!
The second product was marine collagen to improve sore joints and muscles. After long periods at sea, I had muscle and joint pain in various places. With collagen being on the market for decades, it had extensive safety data when used over long periods. The heavy metal content is also significantly low and the actual fish meat is used for further consumables, meaning that the quality is way above the fish that is sourced merely for their skins.
Wellness Lab is dedicated to innovation in the field of life sciences and food. Our Probiotic Tea got awarded an i innovation grant for the forward-thinking approach to the industry.
Once again, we've partnered with the best manufacturers in the UK and they have been a tremendous help in achieving the colours, taste and the feel that we visioned for the range and of course we make sure that NO artificial flavours, colours, preservatives or sweeteners are added to our products!
Yours, Elin Traustadottir
