Make peace with sensitive skin with The Body Shop’s new Almond Milk & Honey bath and skin care range. Enriched with Community Trade almond oil from the Alicante region of Spain, and Community Trade honey from the UNESCO Sheka rainforest in Ethiopia, this caring new range is as kind to the environment as it is your skin.
Our almond oil comes from almond nuts grown by expert farmers in the Alicante region of Spain. To collect the precious honey sourced from the Sheka rainforest biosphere reserve, The Body Shop works 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. This helps support the sustainable use of the forest by providing a steady income to local people who might otherwise be forced to agriculture that could lead to deforestation.
Alongside with its campaign “Make love not war with sensitive skin”, The Body Shop also wants people to embrace sensitivity, to show kindness and empathy to all the sensitive issues seen in social media. For this, it has selected Almond Milk & Honey ambassadors who give support to the brand’s values through social media.
Almond Milk & Honey ambassadors who are lending their voice to be optimistic to all things sensitive are Stacy and Danah Gutierrez, who promote embracing your own body shape; Jigs Mayuga who has a passion for the Makeup Industry and CrossFit shows that it’s okay to embrace femininity and masculinity at the same time; Chinchin Obcena who stands up positively in her blogs despite having its fair share of bashers; and Edcell Ched who experienced a social media bashing but chose to keep a smiling face. They are asking you, to follow them, to make love and not war.
Made for sensitively dry skin, The Body Shop’s new range starts from bath essentials such as the Almond Milk & Honey Cleansing Bar, Gently Exfoliating Cream Body Scrub, Bath Milk, and Shower Cream. The, there are products for your after-bath skin care routine- the Almond Milk & Honey Body Lotion, Soothing & Restoring Body Butter, and the Calming & Protecting Hand Cream.
