New Delhi: Global D2C Ayurveda brand, The Ayurveda Experience has secured $27 million (about Rs 224 crore) funding from a clutch of investors led by Singapore-based Jungle Ventures, a statement said on Friday.

It owns four lines of beauty and health products– iYURA, Ajara, A Modernica Naturalis, and Ayuttva, which it manufactures, and sells and distributes on its platform.

It also offers a range of services including consultation, content, webinars, and courses on Ayurveda.

“These funds will be deployed to further fortify the group’s R&D, supply chain and manufacturing strength, explore and scale newer avenues for distribution,” said Chopra, the founder and CEO of TAE.

TAE actively sells products in 20 countries including India, as per the statement.
