Go Hemp on this Earth Day 2008
On this special day, I would like to introduce The Body Shop's eco-friendly miracle moisturizer - HEMP. Yes, you've heard right, it's hemp. No no, before you think of rolling a joint, this is not the hemp you're thinking of. It's the cousin of the Cannabis family. You can turn off your Bob Marley and stash your lava lamps away now *wink*
Is Hemp eco-friendly? This miracle plant needs very little fertilizer, making it a very natural ingredient choice. So, less carbon foot prints and leakage of chemicals to the natural world. Apart from that, this super plant helps to replenish soil. Now, how cool is that.
Why Hemp? This super moisturizing hemp is perfect for very dry skin as it has an unusually high concentration of essential fatty acids that help to repair the skin's moisture barrier. Restoring moisture, smoothness and suppleness.
Here are some interesting hemp body products from The Body Shop:
1) The Body Shop's Hemp Body Butter
Quench your thirsty skin with this hemp body butter. You only need a little and massage in your skin and a little goes a long way. Say hello to beautiful skin. I especially love it for my legs as I love wearing dresses and skirts. Guilty of being a girly girl *wink*
2) The Body Shop's Hemp Hand Protector
Love to have baby-soft hands? Look no more, try this wonderful hemp hand moisturizer. It leaves my hands soft and oh-so-lovely. Helps to soothe my dry, brittle cuticles too. You know, you really can't have enough of hand creams; in the handbag, in the car, in the kitchen, in the living room, bedroom everywhere. You can sneek this little moisturizer in your handbag and you're good to go
3) The Body Shop's Hemp foot protector
Some pampering for your footsies. It's time to show off your cute sandals and strappy stilettoes. This lovely cream will pamper your little footsies and protect your toe nails too. I had a terrible case of cracked heels and it's starting to hurt alittle. After applying the cream, I wore socks and slept through the night. When I wake up, it was hello to soft little footsies again.
Join me on Earth Day and go au naturel. I'm walking to work today to lower carbon footprints in the world. Have you done your part today?
