Keeping it fair with good care

Wednesday, 7th October, 2020 1:38pm

This October marks World Fair Trade Month, which raises awareness about the importance of the fair trade movement. Dr. Bronner’s personal care range is made with certified organic and certified fair trade ingredients that nourish the skin and body while also caring for the planet and its people.

As part of its All-One philosophy, Dr. Bronner’s sources its natural oils from small-scale farmers around the world, including from Sri Lanka for coconut oil, Ghana for palm oil, Palestine and Israel for olive oil, and India for mint oil.

These ingredients account for more than 95 per cent of Dr. Bronner’s raw material purchases which they use to develop its organic and fair trade supply chain.

The Dr. Bronner’s range includes hand soaps, lip balms, body lotions, sanitizers, and more and is available in health stores and selected pharmacies and from Some of the highlights of the range include:

A home and hand-bag essential that can be used on-the-go, on buses and trains to help combat cold and flu season. The organic and fair-trade peppermint oil in this new product is sourced from Pavitramenthe, Dr. Bronner’s partner in Bareilly, India, where more than 1,500 farmers utilise regenerative organic agriculture practices.


The hand and body lotions are made with organic oils, free of synthetic ingredients and preservatives, and are gentle enough to be used anywhere - hands, face, or body. With organic jojoba oil to moisturise dry skin, the Dr. Bronner’s Organic Hand and Body Lotions also contains organic coconut oil, which assists with absorption, while organic hemp and avocado oils help keep skin smooth and supple.


Scented with fair trade and organic peppermint essential oils to cool the skin, clear sinuses and sharpen the mind, the Peppermint Pure-Castile Bar Soap is the most popular scent in the Dr. Bronner’s range.


Packaged in a 100 per cent post-consumer recycled bottle that is also recyclable, this liquid soap can be used for almost any cleaning task. Available in unscented baby mild and eight scents, including peppermint, lavender, green tea, eucalyptus, citrus, almond, rose, and tea tree.
