We’ve shelves full of this new range of Fairtrade health and beauty products. Made with top quality natural ingredients that are not only fantastic for the skin but also Fairtrade, vegan and halal. None of the ingredients are tested on animals and no synthetic fragrances or petrochemical derivatives are used. The staff have all been trying them! So far Kerry loves the vanilla shower gel because, ‘It smells like pudding!” it uses Zaytoun extra virgin olive oil from Palestine. Shona is loving using the green tea body lotion, the tea comes from Darjeeling in the foothills of the Himalayas and is considered to have a revitalising effect, making the skin feel younger! I’m giving the apricot shampoo a try as it promises soft shiny smooth hair. The apricot kernel oil in the shampoo comes from trees grown in the valleys of the Karakoram and Himalayan mountains in Pakistan. Growing under fair trade terms since 2000 the Mountain Fruit Company has been radical in its approach as women run most aspects of the business and ensure that the next generation of women are being educated. Sumaiya has been using the Argan facial cream and loves it. Argan is a nut grown in Morocco and the oil it produces is great at hydrating the skin without leaving it feeling greasy. I’m still waiting to hear first hand reports about the men’s Argan shaving oil or green tea after shave balm, leg and foot care or fruit and nutty cream for kids. So come and try our samples, buy and let us know what you think!
