Sri Lanka is an island country lying in the Indian Ocean off the south east coast of India. While it only takes around 3 hours to drive around the entire island, 21 million people still manage to populate the land. The majority of its people are poor, live in rural areas, and depend on agriculture for their livelihood. A physical environment of wide-ranging diversity makes Sri Lanka one of the world’s most scenic countries. As the home of several ethnic groups, each with its own cultural heritage, Sri Lanka also has a highly varied cultural landscape. Its art and architecture are influenced heavily by traditions of Buddhism and Hinduism.

We are pleased to offer fair trade beauty products from Sri Lanka.
