ILA December 09 2015
Indulgent combinations of pure botanicals, rare sea salts, and critical minerals, Ila’s skin and body care truly makes you feel as if you’re at a spa. The aromatherapeutic scents are absolutely out of this world, and the ingredients and sourcing are next-level: founder Denise Leicester only buys from farms that prioritize farmer workers and the environment, and she focuses beyond-organic into the realm of vibrational qualities within ingredients. Working with local co-ops in Pakistan and the Himalayas, the company empowers women through small enterprise; in the Amazon, it works with indigenous communities to preserve their way of life by creating sustainable tribal business models. Fittingly, ila is the Sanskrit word for “Earth”.
