Carina Santoyo (She/Her)
Founder & Chief lover of beauty
With a background in brand management, wholesale & supply chain, and a personal interest in social entrepreneurship, Carina Santoyo always envisioned starting an international business with a positive social impact. In 2014 she was on a sabbatical traveling through Southeast Asia when she visited Bali and felt an instant connection with the nature-centric way of life, the creativity and the craftsmanship of the locals. She left the island feeling motivated to create a business where she could share her unique finds while providing income opportunities for the locals she had met. In 2017 she made the decision to move to Bali to build her dream business which she established in 2018. Since then, CEREMONIA has held pop-ups in Southern California and NY, launched an online shop & has partnered with retailers all over the world. Carina is hopeful for her brand's future and plans to continue building on her vision.
