The Body Shop launches Nutriganics™, a certified Organic Skincare high performance anti-aging regime collection that carries the world-respected ECOCERT mark.

We were presented with a lovely brown handbag containing The Body Shop latest Nutriganics™ goodies to have a hands on the skincare range.
Next was a skincare demonstration on how to use Nutriganics™ effectively on a model, using the products on the right side of her face only.
The Body Shop trainer first used NUTRIGANICS™ FOAMING FACIAL WASH to cleanse her face, following by NUTRIGANICS™ REFRESHING TONER, NUTRIGANICS™ SMOOTHING MASK.
Next, she used NUTRIGANICS™ SMOOTHING EYE CREAM, NUTRIGANICS™ SMOOTHING SERUM, NUTRIGANICS™ SMOOTHING DAY CREAM.
Its not very visible in the picture but in reality while we were there, all of us agreed that the right side of the model face was instantly brighter and radiant.
We were then given a tour of The Body Shop Office. This is a very rare and unique experience as usually companies do not practice this.
We were first shown The Body Shop Store, yes you read it right. There is a stand alone Store in the office ! The Body Shop manager explained that it helps them to conceptualize the display layout in the store to create a visual feast for their customers. It was brilliant to see and touch almost the complete range from The Body Shop.
One of the meeting rooms illustrated Dame Anita Roddick, the founder of The Body Shop and her leadership, visions, commitments and charitable campaigns.
The History of The Body Shop, stores openings around the world, strong commitment in green campaigns and community trading.
An interesting fact is that there are no dustbins at The Body Shop office! The reason being The Body Shop practised what they believe in, there are Recycling Bins in the office and no photocopying is allowed on each Friday as a weekly effort to save the environment and paper usage are restricted to reduce wastage.
The mini-tour was an eye opener and The Body Shop is extremely committed in green efforts in saving the environment, complete with energy savings lights and recycling bins.
Thank you The Body Shop for the invite and here’s a Group Picture with the lovely babes
Stay tuned for my reviews on Nutriganics™ next week !
