poverty alleviation

Poverty Alleviation & Natural Cosmetics.

Our skin and hair care products. The visible side. In fact, there is another side and purpose that drives our brand. Poverty alleviation.

We strive to make a difference on planet earth. Indeed, to make the world a better place.

Our Australian Co-Founder, Dr. Mike Thair, has been involved in poverty alleviation for 30+ years.

Pictured is Dr. Mike in a remote area of Myanmar working with teachers. For one thing, these schools are impoverished. Dr. Mike’s work is not about charity. Instead, it’s all about empowerment. Facilitating new ideas. Notably, the teachers share our vision to make a difference, to make the world a better place. To address poverty alleviation.

Interestingly, the young teachers Dr. Mike is working with are not from this region, an ethnic minority province. On the contrary, they are city kids, young teachers, parachuted into the province. It is a cooperative dynamic between these young teachers and the local community. One of sharing. One of learning from each other.

At Indochine Natural we are not fans of charity. Poverty alleviation ia about  empowering  poor people to generate their own solutions. In Viet Nam, we worked with farmers to grow and process loofah for our body loofah products. Also, on Penang Island, we have empowered rural intellectually disabled to produce household liquid cleaner. They make this from recycled cooking collected from Halal restaurants.

Empowerment. An element you will find embedded in the Indochine Natural ethos. In particular, embedded in the story of the Indochine Natural founders.
