OUR STORY...
began with a cosmetics junkie, a radical Englishman, a harassed new mom and a newborn baby.

Gandang Kalikasan, Inc. was the brainchild of Gawad Kalinga volunteers Anna Meloto-Wilk, Dylan Wilk and Camille Meloto who burned with the desire to help uplift the Philippines and the Filipino people from poverty.
Anna's passion for the environment blossomed with her first child. Together with Dylan her husband, the successful British entrepreneur who gave up his fast cars and wealthy lifestyle in England to work for the poor in the Philippines, they decided to use cloth diapers after reading that disposable diapers contain toxic chemicals and take 500 years to deteriorate! Living a more sustainable and "green" lifestyle eventually led them to using fewer chemicals and, well, less stuff in general.







Anna and Dylan lived in the United States for a year while Dylan set up a network of Gawad Kalinga volunteers. During their stay, Anna noticed a growing trend of affordable, natural and ethically-acquired products entering the mainstream market. Formerly found in just boutiques and high-end stores, they could now be bought in supermarkets and drug stores.


Upon their return to the Philippines, Camille and Anna continued their research and were able to successfully collaborate with a natural formulator to create Human Nature's first line of products.

Camille, Anna's sister, had always been fascinated with makeup and cosmetics. After graduation, she eventually became a freelance makeup artist and then joined a cosmetics company. Though she was well into pursuing her passion for cosmetics, her longing to help the country was still waiting to be fulfilled.













Camille joined them halfway through their US assignment and the sisters began more in-depth research work on natural and organic products and bringing them to the Philippines.










In November 2008, with the help of some close friends, family and Gawad Kalinga partners, Human Nature was officially launched at Blue Leaf, Fort Bonifacio, Manila.






Today, centering on the core values of being Pro-Philippines, Pro-Poor and Pro-Environment, Human Nature continues to grow exponentially. We currently employ several Gawad Kalinga residents for our full-time warehouse staff and have partnered with social entrepreneurs of the Center for Social Innovation at the GK Enchanted Farm, Angat, Bulacan.


An incubation valley for other social enterprises to grow and flourish, the Enchanted Farm is an all-organic farm that has paved the way for brilliant entrepreneurs to make their dreams come true while empowering their workers through stable livelihood. Examples of enterprises that have sprouted here are Happy Green's Enchantea Bottled Beverage; The Golden Egg, naturally colored salted duck eggs and Gourmet Keso, gourmet karabao white cheese.


Human Nature continues to strive for prosperity in the Philippines through successful and sustainable social enterprises and quality natural products for all Filipinos. An extremely young company, Human Nature has big plans for the future and is fiercely determined to make the Human Nature brand the best of the Philippines, by the Filipinos, for the Filipinos! Only the Good.
