Akira Grateful is an Australian body and skincare range which was born from a desire to give back. To return the opportunities its founder Priyantha was given since arriving in Australia nearly 35 years ago.
Born in Sri Lanka, Priyantha's childhood memories include those of the civil war. When his family migrated to Australia in 1986, he began his new life, with the desire to one day give back.
Akira Grateful works to 'Pay It Forward' and give back to those less fortunate. 100% of Akira Grateful's financial year profits to people living with cancer in countries lacking in medical help, to the homeless, those in poverty and to refugees worldwide.
Their current impact partners are Sister Works which supports women who are refugees, asylum seekers or migrants in Australia, and the Courage Compassion Commitment (CCC) Foundation which supports cancer and mental wellbeing in Australia and Sri Lanka.
All Akira Grateful products are made locally in Australia and are free from nasties like Parabens and Sulfates. Their fragrances are derived from the natural scents of Sri Lanka, including Gota Kola and Cinnamon Leaf, and Green Tea and Tamarind.
Priyantha brings his family's story, their strength and grace in the face of adversity as well as their ultimate gratefulness for life in Australia to you, each time you purchase an Akira Grateful product.
