community Trade

We launched Community Trade in 1987. It is our commitment to trading fairly with suppliers and in exchange we offer good trading practices and independence building prices.

The world is our source of beauty

We source some of the finest raw ingredients and hand-crafted accessories from the four corners of the globe. We harness the skills of small-scale farmers, traditional artisans and rural ? cooperatives who are experts in their field. We add our expertise to create effective products that are made with love and care.

 

We pioneered fair trade in beauty and today we have 26 Community Trade suppliers in 21 countries around the world, benefiting 25,000 people. See where our ingredients come from here.
