Sitara Collections’ Luxe Artisan Soaps Help Lift Girls Out of Poverty

Fair-Trade Company’s Newest Product: Pamper Skin Announced To Support The Education And Employment Of Impoverished Indian Girls & Women Through Sales

Elkton, MD – Sitara Collections is coming clean: Its new line of handmade soaps is the perfect way to beautify body image, and personal hygiene while helping vulnerable girls to escape poverty.

Sold individually or in a collection of four luscious scents, Zekhara Naturals soaps are via manual hand labor using all-natural ingredients. The bars are free of synthetic foaming agents and irritating detergents, relying instead on pure emollients and essential oils to deliver the healing qualities found in each peppermint, avocado, cinnamon, or lemon soap.

A company built around connecting consumers with fair-trade, artisan-made gifts and jewelry, Sitara Collections was quick to welcome Zekhara Naturals to its product lineup. “After seeing for ourselves the outstanding quality of the soaps, as well as learning about the organization behind Zekhara Naturals, we couldn’t wait to make them available to our customers,” says Linda Singh, founder of Sitara Collections.

Zekhara Naturals soap lineup is crafted by enthusiastic women and girls from Pardada Pardadi Educational Society (PPES); a school for girls in one of the poorest areas of northern India. Founded in 2000 by Virendra (Sam) Singh, a retired head of DuPont South Asia, PPES transforms the lives of the most vulnerable members of society—rural girls—by providing education and employment for graduates. Students also receive medical care and are taught to learn simple body-hygiene practices like handwashing and tooth brushing that keep them healthy.

The school has reportedly enrolled 1,400 girls and has a staggering waiting list for students to be admitted in next academic batch. As part of its mission, PPES has also constructed a building where women have the opportunity to create handcrafted goods. Sales of their products, like Zekhara Naturals, help the women to support their families back home.

In addition to working with a mission-driven organization, such as: PPES, Sitara Collections donates a portion of its proceeds to a separate school in northern India seeking to alleviate rural poverty through education.
