Information & Advice
Find out how Fairtrade works and how you – and your beauty regime – can get involved.
At Boots we had a couple of goals in mind when launching our own range of skincare products, Extracts, in 2009. The first was to provide you with range of quality and natural products, and the second was to further our commitment to Fairtrade and ensure that our suppliers were earning a liveable wage.
Fairtrade isn't just about paying a fair price; it is an entirely different way of doing business, helping people in the world's most underprivileged communities escape poverty and promote sustainability.
The Fairtrade Foundation ensures that that the farmers are paid a fair price, plus an additional social premium to invest in their communities.
This guarantees that producers earn enough to cover the cost of sustainable production – in other words, making sure they have enough money to carry on producing the product.
This means even the poorest, weakest producers receive a fair income and can improve their lives. Fairtrade encourage any profit to be re-invested back into the local community, for things such as water irrigation tanks, education, and to see to medical needs.
Fairtrade demands that certain standards are met by producers, ensuring you always receive quality Fairtrade products that have been independently certified.
So when you're scrubbing up with your favourite Extracts Cocoa Butter Sugar Scrub, or indulging with your Extracts Cocoa Butter Body Butter, you can be sure that you are using a Fairtrade product with high quality ingredients.
