Biography

The year was 1987. A beautiful baby girl was born to a rocket scientist who came from a family of Ayurvedic doctors from Sri Lanka.

Her doting parents found that their baby girl’s skin was reacting badly to a popular brand of baby lotion. Dr. Lingam and his wife unsuccessfully searched for something gentler, safer, and non-irritating in the stores and pharmacies. Of course, Dr. Lingam was not discouraged. Not only did he come from an illustrious line of Ayurvedic specialists, he was also part of an esteemed group of scientists, physicians and research chemists.

Dr. Lingam sought the help of his friend, Brian Jegasothy, MD who was part of his inner circle (and formerly Chairman, Department of Dermatology, University of Pittsburgh, USA). A research team headed by Dr. Jegasothy was soon formed to fulfill the quest for a skin care product that was non-irritating, non-inflammatory and gentle on infant skin. This research team had a combined experience of over 200 years and consisted of accomplished dermatologists, scientists and physicians.

Dr. Lingam, Dr. Jegasothy and their team had a vision to develop an irritant free skin care line that would tap into mother nature’s own healing power to keep the skin hydrated, well nourished and radiant. This team, guided by Dr. Jegasothy’s scientific research knew something that most skin care lines did not seem to know or care about. Dr. Jegasothy had discovered the relationship between continuous inflammation, disease and aging. They found that, “Continuous inflammation, including sub-clinical inflammation was the root-cause of premature aging and was linked to development of chronic diseases and cancer.”

They found that the regular and continuous use of skincare products available in the marketplace resulted in inflammation which would later show up in the form of deadly diseases. This discovery greatly alarmed Dr. Lingam and his team of scientists. The team was then inspired to form Hylunia Skin Care in 1988 to enable people of all ages and skin types to enjoy healthy and beautiful skin throughout their life without compromising their health and safety. And now, 30+ years later, Hylunia Skincare is delivering on that promise!

Dr. Lingam, Dr. Jegasothy and their team had a vision to develop an irritant free skin care line that would tap into Mother Nature’s own healing power to keep the skin safe, soft and radiant. This team, guided by Dr. Jegasothy’s scientific research knew something that most skin care lines did not seem to know or care about. Dr. Jegasothy had discovered the relationship between continuous inflammation, disease and aging. They found that with respect to the skincare products available in the marketplace, most of the benefit was psychological while causing severe physiological damage which could later show up in the form of deadly diseases. This discovery greatly alarmed Dr. Lingam and his team of scientists. The team was then inspired to form Hylunia Skin Care in 1988 to enable people of all ages and skin types to protect, preserve and pamper their skin with powerful antioxidants, vitamins and plant peptides.
