With this in mind and seeking a gap in the market, The Body Shop found that many of the classic, sensitive-skin products on the market are great when it comes to soothing sensitive, dry skin, but the brand asked, ‘are they a joy to use? The result: a thoughtful skincare range that combines nourishing and restoring ingredients with pleasurable textures and a subtle hypoallergenic fragrance – which makes using the products an enjoyable experience.
Importantly, considering the growth of the conscious consumer, The Body Shop continues its Fair Trade ingredients commitment. It is enriched with Community Trade almond oil from the Alicante region of Spain and Community Trade honey from the UNESCO Sheka rainforest in Ethiopia.
Shannon Chrisp, Marketing & Corporate Responsibility Director explained to press at the media launch: “Almond oil comes from almond nuts grown by expert farmers in Alicante, Spain. It is a new ingredient within our Community Trade programme, taking us one step closer to our Enrich Not Exploit Commitment to double the number of Community Trade ingredients we use by 2020. To collect the precious honey we source from the Sheka rainforest biosphere reserve, we work with the ‘bee whisperers’ of Beza Mar, a group dedicated to improving the livelihood of Ethiopian beekeeping communities and maintaining their traditional, natural way of working with the bees. Our trade helps support the sustainable use of the forest by providing a steady income to local people who might otherwise be forced to rely on agriculture that could lead to deforestation.”
Guest speaker at the press event was Gary Gorrow, a Vedic practitioner. Gary talked about the ayurvedic philosophies starting with the focus on thriving. Being quiet and still and honing our five senses which, in today’s world, are depleted; and setting your intention, really directing your energy towards your goal. Then let the universe take care of the details. For more on understanding Vedic philosophies that will enhance your health and wellbeing, in a straight forward presentation, see garygorrow.com.

Whether you have a high roller budget, or a shoe string discretionary spend would you ever purchase a fragrance you just don’t like…and then wear it? A fragrance is your sensory signature, it’s your lasting sensory impression you leave with the one you encounter. A woman or man’s relationship with their fragrance is an intimate bond. The scent of a fragrance allows you to be creative and individual, to create an alter ego or choose a particular persona - you choose who you would like to be that day.
Asia remains the dominant player in global skincare sales, with consumers across the continent “obsessed with” seeking to achieve flawless skin that is clear, luminous and seemingly transparent.
