The story of Siddhalepa traces back to Walpola, Imaduwa, a remote village in the Galle District of Sri Lanka. Dr. Victor Hettigoda, the visionary founder, gained insight into Ayurveda from his father, Hendrick de Silva Hettigoda. Driven by a passion for Ayurveda, he dedicated himself to
the family profession, eventually uncovering the secret formula of the ‘Siddhalepa’ wonder balm. With a vision of providing a ‘Vedamahathmaya (physician) in every home,’ Dr. Hettigoda embarked on a journey in the early 1970s, laying the foundation for what is now the successful
Hettigoda Group of Companies with a global distribution network.
Dr. Hettigoda's dedication earned him the title ‘Balm King’ by Asiaweek in 1989, and he received several prestigious accolades, including the coveted ‘Deshabandu’ award from the President of Sri Lanka, in recognition of his tireless contributions to the field of Ayurveda.
