Body Brushes
Sri Lanka and its main city of Kerawalapitiya is where we discovered our body brushes. There, only sustainable biodegradable raw materials are used and all products are handmade. Timber used for these brush products are timber off cuts. Timber is abundantly grown in Sri Lanka. The sealer used on this timber is a toy paint sealer which is non-toxic. About 25 people are employed from their main factory, and only those 18 or older. There is no discrimination in gender, religion, language or cast. Most of the women employed are with children and are allowed flexible working hours. Work is provided for women around the vicinity who work from their homes and are unable to come to the factory (taking care of their sick parents, babies, etc) as well as several subcontractors in rural areas (families with children) who are unable to come to work on the premises.
