Be Clean, Moisturized and Socially Conscious all in one!

mark. by Avon recently came out with a bath and body line that not only contains natural ingredients in their formula, but what makes these products even better is that the ingredients are Fair Trade Certified. This meaning that overseas communities that are allied with Fair Trade are supported with the help of receiving fair prices and help in direct trade and community development in exchange for the farming and production of the ingredients(honey, white tea, chamomile, vanilla just to name a few) that go into these products.

There are four products in total, but I got a chance to get my hands on the cleanser and body lotion.

This is the cleanser Fresh Approach and it contains honey and white tea, blended with rice bran and sunflower oil. It has a very light clean scent and I read that besides a cleanser it can be also used as a shaving cream.  Honestly the lather was a little light, but the formula was creamy which made it good to shave with. Overall, I think this a great light cleanser that is perfect for summer when you don't want a body wash to feel like it's suffocating your skin, but you also want that intense moisture.

This is the body lotion Do The Right Thing and I think this body lotion is a must have for the summer. Not only does it contain cocoa butter, honey and hibiscus with grape and papaya extracts, it also has SPF 15 which combined makes it a great light, hydrating, sun protecting lotion. Even better this lotion is very light on the fragrance allowing for your favorite summer fragrance to shine! 

To sum it all up, I think mark. introducing these great bath and body products with natural ingredients in association with them being Fair Trade certified is a good start in raising social awareness and bring support to those who work hard producing agriculture for worldwide use.
