Hi! It seems you're viewing our website from .
began with a cosmetics junkie, a radical Englishman, and a determined new mom.

Human Nature (Gandang Kalikasan, Inc.) was the brainchild of Gawad Kalinga volunteers Camille Meloto, Dylan Wilk, and Anna Meloto-Wilk who wanted to start a revolution of inclusive enterprises that promote caring and restore communities.
Anna's passion for the environment blossomed with her first child. Together with her husband, Dylan, a successful British entrepreneur who gave up his comfortable lifestyle in England to work with the poor in the Philippines, they decided to use cloth diapers after learning that disposable diapers take 500 years to deteriorate. Living a more sustainable lifestyle eventually led them to using fewer chemicals and, well, less stuff in general.
Camille, Anna's sister, had always been fascinated with makeup and cosmetics. After finishing college, she worked as a freelance makeup artist and eventually 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.
Anna and Dylan lived in the United States for a year setting up a network of Gawad Kalinga volunteers. They noticed a growing trend of affordable, natural, eco-friendly and ethically-made products entering the mainstream market. What used to be found solely in high-end boutiques and could now be bought in supermarkets and drug stores.
Camille joined them halfway through their US assignment and the sisters began in-depth research on natural products. They envisioned a business that would produce high-quality, Philippine-made natural products that not only delighted the consumer but would restore productivity to the land and the people.
With the collaboration of a natural formulator, the first line of natural products were created a year later, and with the help of some close friends, family and Gawad Kalinga partners, Human Nature was officially launched in November 2008 at Blue Leaf, Fort Bonifacio, Manila.
Centering on the core values of being pro-Philippines, pro-poor, and pro-environment, Human Nature began to develop effective, safe and environmentally sustainable products from ingredients that can be grown locally. From the start, the company also committed to providing job security and dignified wages to bring its workers into a better quality of life.
Human Nature continues to grow exponentially. We currently employ hundreds of Gawad Kalinga residents and residents of other poor communities in roles from accounting to manufacturing to warehousing and merchandising.

Beyond direct employment, the company has partnered with many other social entrepreneurs, notably those from GK Blue Eagle Village in Payatas, the home of Trese and GK Enchanted Farm, Angat, Bulacan, to try to create a springboard to help them improve product quality and design and get their products to market.

An incubation valley for social businesses to grow and flourish, enterprises that have sprouted in the Enchanted Farm are the all-nutritious, all-delicious, all-Filipino beverage Bayani Brew; First Harvest healthy traditional homemade spreads; The GoldenducK and its innovative duck products; and Gourmet Keso, gourmet Philippine-made cheese.

Where goodness is sown, goodness is reaped. This is what we proved when Human Nature successfully opened its Carmelray Manufacturing Plant in Canlubang, Laguna in 2014. Founded on the spirit of bayanihan and commitment to providing quality, natural goodness in every bottle, the plant upholds the highest possible standards in production and quality control. Human Nature's microbial standards are 100 times stricter than FDA allowable limits in cosmetics, for example.

Though still a very 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!

Goodness... it's Human Nature.
