Make a positive splash on the environment and start your day with the new eco-conscious* 100% biodegradable shower gel range. Earth Lovers™ is the second product range launched by The Body Shop to hold the new ecoconscious* label. Earth Lovers™ shower gels are 100% biodegradable, so you can have a blast in the shower with silky soft, soap-free, non-drying formulas that are gentle on your skin and the planet. Use alone or with The Body Shop's Skin Sponge - made with recycled Milk Cartons.
Earth Lovers™ shower gels are infused with goodness, featuring a blend of herb and fruit extracts and Community Fair Trade aloe vera to leave your skin naturally fragranced and super soft. Choose from a selection of five refreshing fragrances to keep your senses alive every day of the week:Apricot and Basil
Wash away your worries with Apricot & Basil shower gel. Apricot fruit extracts are ideal for softening, nourishing, moisturising and regenerating the skin. Basil is considered a cooling herb, and is used as a tonic to relieve fatigue, to balance the mind and emotions, as well as improve and enhance the skin's texture.Pear and Lemongrass
Envelop yourself in the fresh aromas of Pear & Lemongrass. Abundant in vitamin C, pear juice extract is known to soothe and rejuvenate the skin. Ideal in restoring radiance in dull, tired looking skin, pears are recommended for their exfoliating and toning properties. The sweetness of the pear fragrance is balanced by the clean, citrusy scent of lemongrass. Used for centuries in India as a medicinal herb and in perfumes, lemongrass essential oil is often used today to uplift the spirits and to balance oily skin.Fig and Rosemary
For a fabulous fragrance boost, lather yourself in the gorgeous Fig & Rosemary blend. Treasured for their warm scent, figs have long been celebrated for their rich, sweetness. Rich in anti-oxidants, fig extracts are known to help remove dead skin cells, leaving skin soft and silky. Beautifully aromatic, rosemary is a cleansing, stimulating and restorative herb, widely used to tone and improve skin texture. It also has astringent properties, which help to reduce excess oil in skin and hair.Clean formula gentle on the skin
: The entire Earth Lovers™ range is made from a soap-free base, so it's non-drying and suitable for sensitive skin.
The formulas do not include any of the following common skin irritants:
No Sulphates: We avoided using common sulphate based surfactants and have instead used more natural foaming agents in the eco-conscious Earth Lovers™ shower gels to produce a delicate lather.
No Colourants: By avoiding the inclusion of colour ingredients, you can see the actual colour of the shower gel.
No Parabens: The Body Shop recognises that some shoppers want to choose paraben-free products, so it has developed this range without any parabens. The eco-conscious symbol
: The eco-conscious symbol was first introduced in the Rainforest Hair Care range in 2010.
It is a promise that products carrying this symbol: Respect the aquatic environment so the fish in the sea are protected
Are made from biodegradable formulas. This means the foaming agents readily break down in the environment as soon they are washed down the plughole
Use a minimum of packaging waste, and are made of postconsumer recyclate wherever possible*Organic aloe vera from Guatemala
: Every product in the Earth Lovers™ shower gel range contains Community Fair Trade organic aloe vera from Guatemala. Aloe vera extract has long been used for its healing benefits and contains over 75 beneficial nutrients and 200 active compounds. It is used extensively for soothing burn treatments, stimulating new skin cell growth and as a natural skin balm.
Up to 15 farmers from the El Progreso state in Guatemala grow and harvest The Body Shop Community Fair Trade organic aloe vera. They grow it without the use of pesticides or fertilisers, then hand-harvest, hand-wash and hand-fillet it within 12 hours to preserve the freshness of the gel.
Trading with The Body Shop provides an income for the farmers and directly benefits members of the community.
The Body Shop is working hard to help protect the planet. Together we can make a difference.
