In honor of Fair Trade Month, I am sharing some of my favorite fairly-traded beauty products! When we think of fair trade, we often think of chocolate, coffee, and sometimes jewelry - but some of our go-to beauty ingredients, like shea, are grown abroad where farmers and tradesmen and women are not paid fairly for their work. Do your part by supporting companies that ethically source their skincare products. My favorites include:
Shea Yeleen Lavender Honeysuckle Body Butter (non profit company!)
Everyday Shea Body Lotion (widely available - try Whole Foods or Follain)
Fair Squared Lip Balm (foreign fav)
Lush Fair Trade Foot Lotion (a classic cabinet staple)
what are your favs?
