At Milk Moon, it’s believed that the nervous system and adrenals are a crucial, mostly overlooked component of postpartum health. In the early months (and years) of parenthood we are in a nearly constant state of high alert. The work of caring for a tiny human keeps our bodies in a low level fight-or-flight mode. Combined with a lack of high quality restorative sleep, this leads to burnout for so many moms. Milk Moon believes that supporting and nourishing these systems enables women to show up to motherhood with a sense of calm, clarity and resilience.

Riven began with a simple question between longtime friends Fatima (the dentist) and Jay (the entrepreneur) why hasn’t anyone tried a different approach? Instead of the traditional approach of stripping away bacteria to sterilize your mouth, destroying balance to your oral biome, why not add more good bacteria already found in your mouth? A seemingly simple concept, they couldn’t find any products that worked with our oral ecosystem, so they built it. They worked with microbiologists, formulators and scientists and went through iteration after iteration to create the best possible formula supported by science. Riven accepts, respects and protects your oral microbiome. Riven enhances your oral ecosystem so that it can work the way it was meant to.
