This October, celebrate Fair Trade Month with personal care brand Dr. Bronner’s, maker of the top-selling organic and fair trade plant-based personal care products. Made with organic certified and fair trade certified ingredients that nourish your skin and body while also caring for the planet, there’s something for everyone in the Dr. Bronner’s range including hand soaps, lip balms, body lotions, and sanitizers.

As part of its All-One philosophy, Dr. Bronner’s has created or partnered with fair trade and organic projects to build equitable supply chains for its natural oils sourced from small-scale farmers around the world – including Sri Lanka for coconut oil, Ghana for palm oil, Palestine and Israel for olive oil and India for mint oil. These ingredients account for more than 95% of Dr. Bronner’s raw material purchases to  develop the company’s organic and fair trade supply chain. This ensures products are produced according to certified fair trade standards verified by third party certifier, Fair For Life. Through this certification, the company supports the implementation of community development projects in the regions where ingredients are grown. An estimated 10,000 people around the world benefit directly from Dr. Bronner’s fair trade projects.

This Fair Trade Month, be kind to yourself while also supporting the farmers and workers across the globe with a purchase of the Dr. Bronner’s range available in health stores and selected pharmacies nationwide.
