20 years and counting…The Body Shop’s Tea Tree Oil

Well, it is my special day and feel that it is a great reason to spend time on things rather special. I am sure you would love to know more about this special product from a brand that is surely one of my favourites.

Believed to be fresh, invigorating and zingy, The Body Shop’s Tea Tree Range is a hit globally and what is truly incredible is the fact that the Tea Tree Oil is celebrating its 20th Anniversary this month. In an industry where just about every now and then, there is a new product which gets introduced, it takes a lot for one to blossom with much success for these many years. A solid highlight being that this skin-saving bottle is sold every 8 seconds globally. There might be few to whom this would be news but the Tea Tree Oil actually comes from the foothills of Mount Kenya. The leaves are hand-picked and steam-distilled to release the oil. It is believed to be extremely powerful to the extent that you can feel it working from the time of the very first application.
For many girls, it has been a part of their growing up years when they have tackled the issue of zits with Tea Tree Oil. The oil is considered to be effective and gentle, without leading to too much over-drying, it simply makes the skin look clearer. The best part being that it is non-greasy and gets easily absorbed.

The Tea Tree Oil is a part of the skin care regime of the gorgeous Jacqueline Fernandez. She calls it her hero product and no doubt it is one! Here is our salute to this true hero!

Beauty just isn’t about looking like a painted bimbette. It’s way beyond that. It also includes feeling beautiful and beautifying the environment. I would personally not want to use cosmetics that fetch me compliments while hurting the earth.

Thank God for brands like The Body Shop, which divert a great fraction of their resources in protecting the Earth. Celebrating that positivism and goodness, TBS yesterday on Earth Day hosted a small event at their outlet in The Select CityWalk, New Delhi. The look of the store was indeed refreshing with everything done in green and white just like the dress code, which I did manage to follow. Speaking to the much friendly and warm representatives of TBS, I figured a lot of ways in which the brand contributes towards giving back to the environment and in maintaining the natural balance. Some of these ways include minimalistic packaging in all TBS products, use of recyclable plastic and beauty ranges made out of completely bio-degradable ingredients that are not only harmless for us but also for the environment. Well, don’t get into thinking it was a boring event with TBS staff lecturing on Earth Day because it was wrapped with a lot of fun activities that women can barely resist.

There was a small station offering pampering hand massage with their new ‘Absinthe’ hand cream while another beauty desk gave makeovers by special TBS experts. A lot of us were without a hold-up fascinated by that.

I specially loved their quick bites and desserts done in the nature colours. And finally before making an exit most of us made a pledge towards the Earth by signing the pledge cards and indulged in some posing in a corner that looked well stuffed with props.

Take a quick peek…
