Soya oil is known and loved for its rich moisturising properties, making it an amazing base for our moisturisers. Rich in essential fatty acids, it cares for dry and mature skin. We source our Community Trade soya oil from Gebana, who produce it from GM-free, organically grown soya beans cultivated in the hinterlands of the Iguazu River. Gebana differs from much of the soya farming industry (which is one of the major contributors to deforestation in Brazil) by promoting sustainable farming methods and organic produce. Each year we buy tonnes of this rich, silky oil – enough to fill over 125 bathtubs!
Soya oil is rich in essential fatty acids and is known for its rich moisturising properties, making it a great base for our creams. We only use organic, non-genetically modified soybeans.
The Body Shop pays Gebana a premium to help finance training programmes in organic farming techniques, organic certification and bulk purchase of organic fertiliser.
We’ve chosen to work with Gebana because they use organic, sustainable farming methods. Many farms border the National Park of Iguazzu in the precious Atlantic forest. Farmers support park authorities to improve wildlife corridors. Gaining Round Table on Responsible Soy (RTRS) certification is another one of Gebana's many successes.
