History

A 45 year old legacy of strong R&D and Manufacturing expertise

Sadatan is India’s leading manufacturer of Ayurvedic & Spa products. We have been supplying products across India and over 20 countries worldwide since 1980.

Our founding company (Puma Ayurvedic Herbals Pvt. Ltd.) was established in 1980 as an R&D laboratory to study the principles of Ayurveda with a scientific, modern approach.Our first assignment was to create a natural line of dermatological products that was marketed in India and South East Asia. Subsequently, we broadened our scope of R&D to include not only beauty products, but also Spa products, traditional Ayurvedic oils, skin & hair care. Since then we have developed over 400 beauty for customers in India and Abroad. In due course we established our own manufacturing setup and started marketing our products globally.

Combining the best of learning and research acquired for over 25 years, we launched our high end brand for Spas, Iraya in 2006. Iraya was the leading Ayurveda brand at Spas across South Asia for over 10 years and won critically acclaimed awards and was considered one of the pioneers in the Spa industry. We started retail and online operations in 2012, and in 2018 Iraya was acquired by and merged into one of the largest retail companies in India.
