One leading brand shining the light on what’s fair, and what’s not, is Fair Squared. Its natural, organic and Fair Trade skincare range, includes; face, body, hand and hair care, and it has a core collection of hero products – which are also vegan.
I’ve been following up with the gorgeous Green Tea Body Butter, £10.95. Leaving limbs and body velvety smooth, the green tea (from India) nourishes while the rich shea butter (from Burkina Faso) moisturises and heals. It sinks in like a dream and leaves a nice, soft sheen.
Finally, I have been completely won over by the Argan Facial Cream, £12.95. Suited to normal and combination skin, it uses a blend of argan and olive oil, aloe vera, vitamin E and apricot kernel oil to hydrate, while protecting the skin from free radicals. Fair Trade ingredients include argan oil from Morocco, apricot kernel oil from Pakistan and olive oil from Palestine.
Smooth on to clean skin and it is left moisturised and radiant. With its combination of natural ingredients, it gives the complexion a dose of goodness so that you end up looking good and – with the knowledge of the brand’s moral backbone – feeling good, too. It’s what Fair Trade, organic and natural is all about.
