Himalaya's story began way back in 1930. A curious young man riding through the forests of Burma saw restless elephants being fed the root of a plant,
which helped pacify them. Fascinated by the plant's effect on elephants, this young man, Mr. M. Manal, the founder of Himalaya, made medicines with the herb's properties.In 1955, Himalaya introduced Liv.52, a liver formulation that ensures optimum liver function. The product soon became our flagship brand and a top selling herbal medicine. In 1999, Himalaya entered the personal care segment under the brand name 'Ayurvedic Concepts'.
Today, the Himalaya brand is synonymous with safe and efficacious herbal products. Starting off operations in Dehradun way back in the 1930s, the company later spread its wings to Mumbai and across the country. In 1975, the company set up an advanced manufacturing facility in Makali, Bengaluru, India. In 1991, the company relocated its R&D facility to Bengaluru.
