about ranu

Arthy and Mom

Based on Ayurvedic principles, Ranu has been formulated with natural, clean, proprietary blends of rich botanicals and pure oils that have been handed down within the Ranu family for more than 400 years.

Born in Sri Lanka, founder Arthy Sivabalan’s life was infused with her family’s wisdom by her mother, who taught her the integral connection between body, mind and soul, in accordance with Ayurvedic teachings.

Ranu, which means "heaven" in Tamil, offers the exquisite formulations of Arthy’s ancestral heritage, allowing everyone to enjoy the luxurious applications as well as the visibly transformative benefits.


As a young child, founder Arthy Sivabalan was taught the importance of using naturally-sourced, nourishing ingredients to balance her mind, body and spirit.

As she grew up, she learned the secret to attaining a healthy, glowing complexion by sourcing ingredients and mixing her family’s recipes to clear blemishes, reduce discoloration and brighten skin.

Arthy noticed the stark contrast between the treatments she was formulating at home and the products that were being sold in stores. She observed the watered-down ingredients and deceptive promises in products touted as “must-haves.”

The lack of authentic, Ayurvedic products in the marketplace, coupled with her transformative experience with her family’s formulations, inspired Arthy to create Ranu.

what is ayurveda?

Ayurvedic Herbs

Ayurveda is an ancient holistic system of medicine that has been practiced for more than 5,000 years throughout Eastern Asia. It translates to "Knowledge of Life.”

Developed during a period of great spiritual enlightenment, the great sages of Eastern Asia recognized the close relationship between humans and the Universe. In so doing, they were able to unlock the body’s own intelligence and repair systems.

By mixing potent herbs, maintaining specific lifestyle practices and engaging in daily rituals, they were able to maintain and restore balance, health and beauty.
