Can a Beauty Product Save the World?

There is an interesting article in Redbook Magazine (Nov issue).
The title is "Can a Beauty Product Save the World"? It talks about Fair
Trade ingredients, and how a few companies (ours included) are getting their ingredients from South and Central America, and how they are helping the villages and
communities improve their quality of life, new schools, water
purifying systems, modern farming techniques, etc.

Even though the article was short....I found it interesting
because I do not really hear about Fair trade unless I bring it up to my customers!

I loved this part...'For a growing number of
other cosmetic companies, "green" beauty goes beyond recycled
packaging and natural ingredients. It's about social responsibility
using their products, money, and influence to institute global
change, one product and one community at a time'. Bravo Redbook for spreading the word!
