Since its inception, Link Natural Products has practiced a unique approach to product development. This innovative approach combined traditional wisdom of Ayurveda with modern science and technology to deliver results that have gained widespread trust and credibility.
Link Natural Products introduced Link Samahan in 1995, based on a solid foundation laid by a profound understanding of manufacturing high quality herbal products such as essential oils and Ayurvedic pharmaceuticals. Link Samahan was a result of many years of thorough research, and has now become Link’s flagship product and the leading cold remedy in the country. Brands such as Link Sudantha toothpaste and Link Kesha herbal hair oil that were launched subsequently have quickly become successful household names in Sri Lanka.
Link Natural Products was the first company in Sri Lanka to use the practice of using scientific clinical trials to bring credibility to the claims made by products. The company understands the value of conducting scientific research to build evidence that can confirm the safety and efficacy of its products. Clinical trials conducted on herbal products such as Link Samahan and Link Sudantha have clearly shown that scientific evidence complements traditional claims.

It also ensures that the highest standards of quality are maintained. The comprehensively integrated manufacturing facility conforms to ISO 9001, ISO 14001, and GMP standards as well as HACCP for products.
