Ethical beauty retailer The Body Shop has expanded its unique Community Trade programme to include, for the first time, coconut growers from the Pacific Islands of Samoa. A Samoan co-operative is now supplying The Body Shop with organic, cold-pressed, virgin coconut oil for use in its new and improved Coconut Bath & Body range.
Organic Virgin Coconut Oil
The tropical coconut oil used in the new Coconut range is sourced from the last place in the world to see the sun rise – just perfect for transporting you to paradise as you cleanse, scrub, soften and smooth your skin. The Body Shop believes in trading fairly with experts to get the best from nature, sourcing this high-quality, organic, cold-pressed, virgin coconut oil from Samoa through the unique Community Trade programme. At a time when consumers are more aware of the quality and provenance of the products and ingredients they put on their bodies, the direct relationship The Body Shop has with the producers in Samoa ensures 100% ingredient traceability, helping to guarantee the highest quality coconut oil.
