Plantfed Mana was founded in 2018 by Master Herbalist, Plant-based Nutritionist and Holistic & Integrative Health Practitioner, Candy Marx, after realising that most supplements contained fillers, preservatives, additives, emulsifiers, binders, and many ingredients that are not required, by law, to be listed on the ingredients list. Also, many products contain herbs that are dangerous for pregnant women, infants and children. Wanting to bring clean wholefood plant-based supplements to the market, Plantfed Mana was born.
We use only organic and ethically-wildcrafted herbs, and we pride ourselves in not using any fillers, additives or preservatives. Our herbal blends are 100% herbs only - the way supplements should be!
We also use the cleanest capsules on the market! Check out our FAQs here.
All of our herbal blends and capsules are hand-made by our Herbalists, and spiritually infused.
We're also proud to use 100% compostable/recyclable cardboard mailer boxes, and we pride ourselves in not using any plastic in our deliveries. We also use kraft paper tape and hemp string to eliminate sticky tape.

"I made the connection between animals and my food when I was still quite young. I grew up on a self-sustained farm and our pigs, ducks and chickens, in particular, were my best friends. And quite frankly, I didn't want to eat my friends. I went vegetarian as a kid, which was at a time when vegetarians didn't really exist - well, not where I grew up. Fast forward 15+ years to the start of my conscious vegan journey."
In 2009, Marx (previously, Maaka-Stoten) launched high-end fashion footwear label, KeilanaSkye, which became a household name after winning the QANTAS Spirit of Youth People's Choice Award in 2012; she was also named a finalist in the QANTAS Spirit of Youth Judge's Choice Award in 2013. Adding to her list of fashion achievements behind KeilanaSkye, she also dressed the Australia's Next Top Model's, Top 20, and showed at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week, Sydney, and in NYC and LA. But after switching from vegetarianism to veganism, in 2012, Marx rebranded her label in 2014 to align with her eco-vegan beliefs, changing direction into social philanthropy - behind Plantfed Mana (formerly KSKYE the Label).
