The Body Shop Daisy Soap

April 10th, 2008 · No Comments · Domestic Violence, Fair Trade, The Body Shop

The Body Shop soapThe Body Shop Daisy Soap is a fantastic moisturizing soap from The Body Shop. It contains glycerin, which is a powerful moisturizer which helps improve softness and maximize hydration, and shea butter, which moisturizes and helps soften the skin.

It not only makes your skin feel great, it helps TWO great causes.

First, proceeds from every bar of Daisy Soap will go to the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence, helping women who are the victims of domestic violence and empowering them to end this terrible scourge.

Second, the soap contains daisy extract and Community Trade shea butter from Ghana. Shea butter is one of the best moisturizers in nature. Women in Ghana have used it over the generations to protect their skin from the dry winds of the Sahara desert. The Body Shop works with the Tungteiya Shea Butter Association in Northern Ghana, which is an association of around 400 women from 10 villages.

Under “fair trade” principles, they ensure a fair price for their product, allowing the women to dramatically change their lives with water pipes and wells saving hours of water collecting, better housing, medical care, food, and self esteem. They are also able to give their children, particularly their daughters and the chance to go to school.
