Fair trade at LushLook at any of our products’ ingredient lists and you might find the phrase “fair trade”: this identifies which ingredients have been certified fair trade by an organization like Fairtrade International, Fair Trade Federation or Fair For Life.
Many of our ingredients have been certified fair trade, but many others haven’t. This can be because they’re grown in a country that isn’t covered by certifying organizations, or because they aren’t produced on a large enough scale to be eligible for certification. Sometimes, certification fees are just too expensive for the supplier.
In some of these cases where the supplier hasn’t been fair trade certified, we set up a direct trade relationship in which we pay them a fair trade rate and premium for their products and require them to abide by the standards around fair working conditions and sustainable practices outlined above. This is a win-win workaround for both us and the supplier!
Where we go from hereOur aim is to nurture existing relationships and develop new ones with suppliers for all of our ingredients. This way we can ensure we’re contributing to fair wages, environmental sustainability and good working conditions. Through direct trade, mutual respect and regular visits, we have found ways to make our trade partnerships stronger while ensuring that prices and conditions are right and fair.
Since 1981 Neal’s Yard Remedies has been at the forefront of natural health and beauty. Most people probably think of us as a producer of world class organic beauty products. But when we first opened our doors we were known as Neal’s Yard Apothecary.
Our vision then, as now, is to combine the apothecary’s expertise and deep knowledge of plant-based remedies, with a broader holistic approach to health and beauty and to help people gain confidence in managing their health and well being in the most natural way possible.
We believe that our mission to enhance and protect people's health and wellbeing starts at the planting of the very first seed, long before our ingredients even arrive at our eco-factory.
Products available include: Skincare, Bath & Body, Mother & Baby, Aromatherapy, Remedies and Makeup.
