Skin is our largest organ. When healthy, it’s the vehicle through which environmental pollutants and toxins are eliminated from the body. When not, pores become clogged and the “yucky stuff” stays inside us, where it can build up and wreak havoc.
Regularly dry brushing is so beneficial because it improves the body’s ability to detoxify by clearing away dead skin cells. It also increases blood flow and circulation (the bristles from the brush stimulate your lymphatic system, consequently speeding up the process of waste elimination). And as if that weren’t enough, dry brushing also easily and painlessly reduces the appearance of cellulite and leaves skin looking and feeling younger.
Our body brushes are:
Each brush is assembled in Sri Lanka, in a factory where workers are 18+ and never discriminated against based on gender, religion, language or cast. Most of the women employed have children and are given flexible working hours. Those who are unable to get to the factory due to family obligations (e.g. in charge of caring for a sick parent or baby) are given the opportunity to work from home.
Each body brush handle is fashioned from timber castoffs intended for landfill and treated with nontoxic paint sealer.

Coconut fiber (COURSE)
Coir or Coco is the material found between the inner shell and outer shell of a coconut. The fiber is relatively waterproof and one of the few vegetable fibers naturally resistant to fungus and mites, making it ideal for use in the kitchen and bathroom. The coconuts we use are grown by small-scale Sri Lankan farmers, who employ local mills to extract the fiber, which strengthens their economy.
