CARING FOR LIFE IS
HIMALAYA’S CORE BUSINESS PHILOSOPHY.
Himalaya’s story began in 1930 when our founder, Mr. M. Manal, riding through the forests of Burma (Myanmar), saw a villager pacify a restless elephant by feeding it the root of the plant, Rauwolfia serpentina. Fascinated by the plant’s effect on elephants, he had it scientifically evaluated.
After researching the herb, Serpina®, the world’s first natural anti-hypertensive drug, was launched in 1934. There has been no looking back. In 1955, Himalaya introduced Liv.52, a liver formulation that ensures optimum liver function. The product soon became a top selling herbal medicine in
several countries. The success of Liv.52 set Himalaya on a path of steady growth, which has continued to date. Today, we touch the lives of millions of people in more than 90 countries with our ‘head-to-heel’ range of over 200 herbal healthcare and personal care products. At the heart of our
success is our continued effort to develop products that make
life healthy and happy for our customers.
