Tree of life

interior of Human Nature's main shop Human Nature is a local line of beauty products and cosmetics that use 95–100% natural (vs. manufactured chemical) ingredients. It is also a social enterprise benefiting residents of Gawad Kalinga (GK) villages—a poverty alleviation program which goes beyond building homes—who make up most of its sales and warehouse staff. The plants that Human Nature uses in its products come from local farms, one of which is also a GK farm. Its products are half the price of similarly natural but imported brands, and the Human Nature items that I buy and use regularly can definitely compete with them in terms of quality. And I just love the wonderful tree design on the flagship store's wall and ceiling!

P.S. Human Nature is also available in the U.S., in case you'd like to try it out.

There seems to be a lot of creative use of wood in this store. Even the floor caught my eye. I wish the project well.
