"The woods are their Apothecaries Shops,
Where with Herbs, Leaves and the Bark of Trees they do notable Cures"
-Robert Knox An Historical Relation of Ceylon, 1681
The beautiful tropical island of Sri Lanka has been a treasure trove of natural healing wonders,strengthened through thousands of years of indigenous Hela-Veda natural healing systems and natural Ayurveda healing.
These ancient natural healing systems are still carefully practiced today by skilled physicians, the vast herbal knowledge having been precisely documented and passed down through the ages through the writing on ancient ola leaves.our ancestors' reliance on nature was however not only limited to health, having also been embraced for beauty purposes,evidence of which still adorns the rock walls of the ancient Sigiriya Rock Palace.
We draw inspiration from the herbal heritage that has resonated across our Historic Kingdoms, and harness the power of plants through science to create high performance natural cosmetics to international standards.
Nature’s Secrets has embarked on a sustainable journey in promoting responsible beauty that is natural, safe and ethical. From our inception we have been fiercely passionate about environmental conservation, consumer wellbeing and community empowerment, and are honored to be the only natural cosmetics company to be awarded Sri Lanka’s highest national environmental award.Taking a step further to help preserve the island’s biodiversity, we have grown a sprawling garden of over 800 medicinal plant varieties, including endemic and endangered species. Today it is the island’s largest privately held medicinal plant collection for conservation and cosmetic research.
