About the company
Humanheart Nature’s story began with a cosmetics junkie, a radical Englishman, and a harassed new mom. Human Nature (Gandang Kalikasan, Inc.) was the brainchild of Gawad Kalinga volunteers Camille Meloto, Dylan Wilk, and Anna Meloto-Wilk who burned with the desire to help uplift the Philippines and its people from poverty.
Anna’s passion for the environment blossomed as did her first child. Together with her husband, Dylan, a successful British entrepreneur who gave up his wealthy lifestyle in England to work with the poor in the Philippines, they decided to use cloth diapers after learning that disposable diapers contain toxic chemicals and take 500 years to deteriorate. Living a more sustainable and “green” lifestyle eventually led them to using fewer chemicals and, well, less stuff in general.
Camille, Anna’s sister, had always been fascinated with makeup and cosmetics. After finishing college, she worked as a freelance makeup artist and eventually joined a cosmetics company. Though she was well into pursuing her passion for cosmetics, her longing to help her home country was still waiting to be fulfilled.
Anna and Dylan lived in the United States for a year while Dylan set up a network of volunteers for the Philippine poverty-alleviation and nation-building movement Gawad Kalinga. Anna noticed a growing trend of affordable, natural, eco-friendly and ethically-made products entering the mainstream market. What used to be found solely in boutiques and high-end stores could now be bought in supermarkets and drug stores.
Camille joined them halfway through their US assignment and the sisters began more in-depth research work on natural and organic products and creating them in the Philippines.
Upon their return to the Philippines, Camille and Anna continued their research and were able to successfully collaborate with a natural formulator to create Human Nature’s first line of products.
With the help of some close friends, family, and Gawad Kalinga partners, Human Nature was officially launched in November 2008 at Blue Leaf, Fort Bonifacio in Manila, Philippines.

“ APPSeCONNECT has greatly improved our business efficiency, especially the speed and accuracy of order processing and the ability to communicate more swiftly with all our customers. Although we were the first APPSeCONNECT installation in the Philippines and everything was done remotely, we found the process of installing APPSeCONNECT and customizing it to our needs very smooth and professionally handled.
With many software companies, customizations are difficult and expensive and technical support can often be a nightmare. But every step of the way, we found InSync reasonable in terms of pricing and extremely efficient in terms of support; in fact they have been one of the most responsive software partners we have ever worked with.
We highly recommend APPSeCONNECT and the team to anyone looking to make the most of their investment in SAP B1. ”
