Global Update

The Product Development team

The Product Development Team

Whether it’s your Desert Mist™ Ultrasonic Diffuser or your Savvy Minerals by Young Living™ Lip Gloss, you love Young Living products because they’re high quality. Young Living’s world-class Product Development team works tirelessly every day to bring you these and countless other effective, innovative products that reflect our demanding Seed to Seal® standards.

From a two-person team in 2014 to a current team of 15 scientists and engineers, our Product Development team has over 100 years of collective formulating experience—and growing! Each member of this team brings unique experience and skills that contribute to the team’s tremendous success.

We have an amazing mix of scientists on the Product Development team, including certified food scientists, a certified herbalist, members of the Society of Cosmetic Chemists, biochemists, and a mechanical engineer,” explains Varun Koneru, the director of Product Development, who oversees the team and reports to Chief Science Officer Dr. Mike Buch. “The talented members of our team are not only experts in their own field, but they also have great experience in formulating with clean ingredients.

Varun received his bachelor’s degree from Anna University in India in biotechnology and came to the United States to pursue a master’s degree from Utah State University in nutrition and food science with an emphasis in human nutrition. He is also a certified food scientist with over seven years of formulating experience.

Young Living has high standards for its formulas, which presents our Product Development team with unique challenges. “It is a challenge to formulate with clean ingredients, especially when there is a lot of natural variation from batch to batch,” Varun explains. "My team specializes in creating clean products to Young Living standards, and we take the utmost care in evaluating safety and efficacy studies of the ingredients before even considering using them in our products.

The Product Development team, working closely with Gary Young, has been extremely successful, playing a key role in launching 80 products in 2017 alone. Some of these products included the Savvy Minerals by Young Living® makeup line, the Young Living Seedlings® line, outdoor care items, and sports nutrition products. Needless to say, this team is staying very busy, which means more exciting products for our members.
