Holy Lama's products are predominantly made from natural ingredients, avoiding the use of harsh chemicals or synthetics. Wherever possible, we use sustainable materials for packaging. During manufacturing, less than 1% wastage is produced, and all waste is used as fuel or cattle feed, thus our carbon footprint is exceptionally low!
The raw materials used for manufacture are sourced primarily from local farmers in Kerala and rest of India, building upon over seven decades of strongly-established relationships with farmers. The business runs on a no-credit principle, meaning all farmers and raw material suppliers are paid immediately. The factory pays fair wages to staff, and fair prices to the farmers.
Holy Lama Naturals is recognized in Kerala as a Government-approved women’s enterprise, where over 80% of the factory workers are women. Most come from disadvantaged backgrounds (i.e. widowed or deserted by a partner).
