The Body Shop brought together the most precious ingredients from around the world when it launched its Oils of Life and Spa of the World lines at SM Makati.
Hosted by Bianca Valerio, the event had a nature setting – mini gardens, blooms, and even wood crate boxes as if to emphasize the fact that these ingredients were sourced from the most exotic locations. There was even a mini-spa to get a revitalizing experience with The Body Shop’s new skincare collections.
To create its Oils of Life, The Body Shop searched the world and selected 3 precious seed oils known for their revitalizing and repairing properties, and infused this in its recently launched skincare range.
The Oils of Life’s three precious seed oils have been infused in highly sensorial textures to bring new life into your skin: Black Cumin Seed Oil from the Egyptian Nile Valley, which is known for its concentration in antioxidants;
Camellia Seed Oil from the evergreen trees from China, which is naturally rich in nutritive oleic acid; and Rosehip Seed Oil from the Andes Foothills of Chile, which is rich in Omega 3 and 6.
And when you choose Oils of Life™ skincare, you help plant seeds and make a positive difference. In partnership with World Land Trust, The Body Shop aims to plant 1 million seeds of native tree species in degraded areas within seasonal dry forest in the Cerro Blanco Protected Forest. The planting will be followed by monitoring and maintenance actions to promote regeneration of forest cover.
The project will take place over a two-year period and will commence in August 2015. Seeds will be collected for storage and preserved for planting, and later in the year, the plantation site will be prepared for sowing. This is in line with The Body Shop’s commitment to help protect the earth’s varied biodiversity and to help preserve and enrich life on the planet.
Escapism, on the other hand, starts at home with the Spa of the World collection, whose ingredients were discovered from different parts of the world, where the most treasured ancient beauty rituals, cherished for their precious effects on skin.
Infused with the finest natural ingredients, Spa of the World’s refined textures and delicate fragrances will take body and mind on the ultimate sensory spa journey. Making you feel so good, inside and out.
The Body Shop’s Spa of the World has three uplifting body rituals: the Relaxing Ritual, which is the perfect way to de-stress, unwind, and reconnect body and mind; the Revitalising Ritual, which invigorates and energizes mind and body; and the Blissful Ritual, a sublime ritual to indulge in.
