Rainforest Hair Care Collection

Rainforest Hair Care Collection

Eco-Conscious Rainforest Hair Care with Organic Amazonian Pracaxi Oil.

Discover gorgeous hair with a global first from The Body Shop. New high-performance hair products stamped with the pioneering 'ecoconscious' symbol to highlight the ecological standards each product meets.

Your hair can look and feel naturally beautiful, while helping to protect our planet, with eco-conscious products that are respectful to the aquatic environment. Each product from the Rainforest Hair Care Collection is free of silicones, colourants and parabens. Let your hair bathe in the luxurious benefits of 100% biodegradable, organic Amazonian pracaxi oil.

To bring out the beauty of your hair The Body Shop have developed four new ranges to suit all hair needs; Moisture, Shine, Radiance and Balance. Discover the benefits of manketti oil, caméline seed oil or bilberry oil - and organic pracaxi oil, which is used across the entire hair care range. Sourced from the seed of the pracaxi tree that grows organically in the Amazonian rainforest, a few drops of this oil turn even the most difficult hair into manageable, shiny strands, boosting softness when hair is both wet and dry, helping you style and comb your hair easily. Pracaxi oil is also 100% natural, biodegradable, organic, non-irritant, and does not have a 'build-up effect' on hair - it is the perfect alternative to hair weighed down or coated in silicones.

This hair care range is the very first from The Body Shop to carry its unique 'eco-conscious' product symbol. To meet ecological standards, each product has been carefully formulated and tested to be: non-toxic to organisms that live in water; highly biodegradable: and use minimal packaging. So you can look and feel your best, knowing that products with this symbol meet the highest eco-conscious The Body Shop standards.

Indulge your ecological - conscience!

The Body Shop has a strong heritage of launching pioneering new initiatives. The brand is recognised around the world for introducing new concepts that have become established around the world - from its 'Against Animal Testing' policy, to the groundbreaking Community Fair Trade programme. It is now the first international beauty brand to launch an 'eco-conscious' product standard.

All The Body Shop products meet environmental standards, however the new 'eco-conscious' standard is awarded to those products that take a further step in respecting our natural environment. Products carrying the 'eco-conscious' symbol go through rigorous testing to ensure they meet our three tough eco-conscious standards:

1. Respect The Aquatic Environment
We choose our materials carefully and only use ingredients known to be non-toxic to organisms that live in water. First we choose each raw material carefully, and only use substances that are non-toxic, non-bioaccumulative and non-persistent in the environment. Then as a final check, we test the formula to ensure it is non-toxic. This approach to product formulation ensures that the product respects the aquatic environment, and the organisms that live within it.

2. Readily and Rapidly Biodegradable
Lather up the eco-conscious way and once the bubbles wash down the plughole, the shampoo or conditioner you have enjoyed will rapidly and readily biodegrade. All the foaming ingredients in the formula are highly biodegradable, and at least 75% of the carbonbased substances are biodegradable.

3. Limit Packaging Waste
The Body Shop is committed to ensure that all eco-conscious products use the minimum amount of packaging. We aim to use the minimum amount of packaging materials for products. We measure the weight and volume of packaging relative to its contents, and our pack-to-content ratio will never exceed 0.2 grams of packaging per gram of product. We also use recycled materials wherever practical. For the new hair care range, the bottles used are also 100% PCR (post-consumer recyclate).

Protecting the Natural Environment
As a result of human settlement and the development of the land, including logging for short-term profit, we know that large sections of rainforests around the world have been destroyed. To protect trees and wildlife in the Atlantic rainforest of Brazil, in partnership with the World Land Trust, The Body Shop is securing this section of rainforest.

You can get closer to this reserve, by visiting The Body Shop website, where a live webcam can transport you to the deepest, darkest rainforest with just a click of a mouse, www.thebodyshop.com.According to the World Land Trust 55 different types of endangered mammals, including the puma, ocelot, sloth and the woolly spider monkey, which is critically endangered, can now thrive in this, their rainforest home. In partnership with the World LandTrust and a local non-governmental organisation based in Brazil, Reserva Ecologica de Guapi Assu, a wide variety of species of bird, a huge range of amphibians, reptiles and flora, can also flourish in this reserve.

Whatever your hair type, there is a specially designed hair care regime to unveil the full beauty of your hair.
