A charm of a lady is meant to heal even the worst of wounds and in the competitive world of corporate this charming quality was made to be the ultimate strength by Chandani Bandara, the Chairperson of 4Ever Skin Naturals (Pvt.) Ltd. Initiating her career from the grassroots level, Chandani has established an empire of beauty and skincare where an initial corporation catering to a network of women-centric needs by a woman was established as a first in Sri Lanka.
The bold step of Chandani to step out of conventional boundaries flamed the now prominently bright and powerful establishment of 4Ever skin naturals that employs many and fuel their livelihood. The journey that began as a small-town girl from Matale spread out to create a presence and identity beyond the usual gender restrictions and norms. The drive and empowerment she carried eminently rubbed off on the media and resulted to create a huge media presence for the company. With the well-deserved support of the media, the company was able to develop sustainable skincare that embraced and encompassed the traditional ayurvedic ingredients to create an effective and affordable brand. 4rever is certified with ISO 9001:2015, ISO 22716:2007 (Cosmetic GMP), HACCP as well as the Ayurvedic Certification.

A not-so-smooth journey that she took embedded her to be the powerful woman she is today. She truly believes the real essence of her power comes from the core qualities she holds as a woman where she can be attentive, sensitive and motherly even in a business environment. In other words, Chandani was capable of catering for the qualities that were deemed to be unnecessary and rather a weakness to a woman in a business environment, according to the restrictive patriarchal mindset, to empower the business effectively and evidently make it sustainable in the long run as well.
She is a pioneer of a cultural reset in Sri Lanka; where her mannerism, as well as products, contributed to making an impactful change that resulted in consecutively winning awards for the brand for its excellence.

Along with the concrete trust the consumers have in the products, Chandani also treasures her employees beyond anything and caters to creating a motherly culture around their organization. Chandani highly values the compassion, understanding and capability an attentive motherly culture creates in a business environment and the elimination of the toxic competitive structure it implements. Evidently proving that the sensitivity of a woman can be catered to create a sustainable corporate environment, Chandani proclaims that a bright future and sustainability of that future can only be ensured if it is centred around humanism, rather than the binding potential to any classifications of gender roles or any other disparities. The support of the old to the new in order to create a new beginning is essential for the positive progression of society as well as for progressive culture, and this support ensures honoring as well as preserving the traditions while incorporating it with new innovations, which is what exactly Chandani has vouched for throughout her life experiences dedicating to create the 4rever brand.
