About Ramuan

Every product perfected and manufactured by Biotropics is based on the principles of Ramuan. In Malaysia, Ramuan is a carefully selected blend of plants and botanicals, many of which have been gathered from the rainforest. In practice, Ramuan means "synergy," or the blending of beneficial ingredients to create a holistic result. Ramuan came from the cultural cross-pollination of Indian ayurvedics, Chinese herbalists and Malay healing customs.
