    • BABASSU OIL

      Babassu oil is extracted from the nuts of the wild babassu palm tree, found on the fringes of the Amazon rainforest in Brazil. Our supplier, The Cooperative of Agricultural Producers of Lago de Junco (COPPALJ) is based in the north-eastern state of Maranhão in Brazil. It comprises over 150 members from 12 communities. The babassu tree has become an important subsistence resource in Maranhão, where over 300,000 families harvest babassu and are often dependent upon this activity for their economic survival. COPPALJ provides a fair wage, and also helps to lobby on behalf of babassu-harvesting communities to help them protect the forest and their livelihood.To find out more, visit our Community Fair Trade section.

    • BEESWAX

      Our Community Fair Trade beeswax is sourced from Guide D’Espoir in Cameroon. We work with Guide D’Espoir (meaning “Guiding Hope) because they produce some of the highest quality beeswax in Cameroon, have a strong commitment to ethical and fair trade principles and are also investing in the development of the beekeepers and their associated communities. Our trade helps provide regular employment and fair wages to approximately 1,000 beekeepers, and so benefits their household members and dependents too: about 10,000 people in total! To find out more, visit our Community Fair Trade section.

    • COCOA BUTTER/BEANS

      We source our Community Fair Trade cocoa beans from the Kuapa Kokoo Farmer’s Union in Ghana. Now the largest Fair Trade co-operative in the world, Kuapa Kokoo has been trading with The Body Shop since its formative years, growing from a few hundred members to representing 78,000 smallholder cocoa farmers! We receive high quality cocoa from the Farmer’s Union which helps us make luxurious cocoa butter for our products; in return, our trade helps provide a steady, fair wage for the members of Kuapa Kokoo, so that they can improve their living standards and invest for the future.

    • SHEA BUTTER

      Our Community Fair Trade shea butter is sourced from northern Ghana, where it has been used for centuries to protect skin from harsh Saharan winds. We work with The Tungteiya Women’s Shea Butter Association to produce the rich shea butter we use in our products. The Body Shop provides the 528 women of the Association with a fair wage, and also pays a premium for the women to invest in community projects. Anita Roddick placed our first order in 1994 after an earlier visit to Ghana where she discovered the natural moisturising properties of shea butter and the amazing women who produced it.
