These smell fantastic and fruity—and their formula contains vitamins E and B5, and Community Fair Trade organic virgin coconut oil. The Body Shop’s latest lip glosses are released in nine new shades in flavours (this is not an understatement—you should see how this office smells) of plum, peach, strawberry, mango, lychee, coconut and watermelon, among others. The formula is non-sticky and lightweight. Each retails for NZ$23.
Meanwhile, the Body Shop has also released its Rainforest Coconut Hair Oil, which contains coconut oil and pracaxi oil, giving a softer shine and nourishment. The coconut oil is sourced from Samoa’s Women in Business Development Initiative, a Community Fair Trade provider. The Body Shop reminds us that Samoa has had two centuries’ experience in coconut oil extraction, and purchasing the oil (retail NZ$28·50) helps the people there, something that’s particularly poignant after the severe storm their country has had.
The hair oil works as an overnight leave-in, a pre-wash treatment or as a scalp massage.
