The Body Shop, in cooperation with ECPAT (End Child Pornography and Trafficking of Children for Sexual Purposes) International, have launched a worldwide campaign to help stop sex trafficking of children and young people. You can help simply by signing the petition. Forms are available at ALL The Body Shop outlets, no purchase necessary.
Purchasing The Body Shop's Soft Hands Kind Hearts Hand Cream (P195, pictured above) also helps the cause, as 100% of the profits for this product are donated to ECPAT Philippines. ECPAT helps provide educational assistance, medical / psychological analysis and treatment, food and shelter, and legal / paralegal support to seek justice for exploitation.
I signed the petition last August 20, 2010. The Body Shop needs as many signatures as possible so as to urge lawmakers to take a more active stance with regards to putting a stop to sex trafficking of children and young people.
The cream is infused with angelica extract and Community Trade olive oil. It goes on thick and creamy but absorbs quickly when you massage it into your skin. It leaves you with very smooth hands that sport a silky sheen. It also has a rather pronounced herbal scent which reminds me of Chinese remedies.
Alternatively, you could purchase the Stop Sex Trafficking Bag for Life (P295, pictured above). Like the Soft Hands Kind Hearts Hand Cream, 100% of the profits from the sale of this bag goes to Ecpat Philippines. It's a reusable bag that's made of organically grown cotton and produced using water-soluble dyes.
