About the Community Trade Hemp
The Hemp Body Collection is the first body care range for very dry skin to feature Community Trade hemp seed oil, which is sourced from a cooperative of small-scale English farmers. Located in rural East Anglia, this was an area facing declining incomes and employment.
The farmers were struggling to earn a livelihood from traditional crops until 1997 when they diversified into the production of essential oils, and now hemp seed. Trade with The Body Shop helps support small farmers, giving new opportunities to a farming community that was previously under threat.
In addition to Community Trade hemp seed oil, the range is enriched with skin-caring Community Trade ingredients sourced from expert farmers from around the world, including babassu oil and soya oil from Brazil, cocoa butter and shea butter from Ghana, beeswax from Cameroon, coconut oil from Samoa and organic olive oil from Italy. Salve your skin and your conscience!
All of the products are dermatologically-tested, as well as being paraben-free, there’s no excuse to feeling good.Â The Body Balm is very thick and is perfect for hydrating dry skin during our summer and winter months.
The Hemp Body Collection will be available from 16 August 2010 for your nearest stockist call 1800 065 232 or visit their website: www.thebodyshop.com.au.
