With its plastic-free EPE liner, and zero-waste scheme*, this Fair Trade Apricot Facial Scrub sits happily on our shelves. Oh, did we mention it's CO2 neutral too?

This gentle facial scrub combines the anti-ageing properties of green tea with the moisture-giving richness of apricot kernel oil. It exfoliates to remove dead skin cells for a healthier, more vibrant complexion.

More about the ingredients:

Fair Trade Green Tea: This power-packed tea offers antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and antimicrobial properties making it perfect for protection from sun and UV damage, redness and irritation, while also preventing breakouts because of impurities.

Fair Trade Apricot Seed Oil: It’s rich in proteins and unsaturated fatty acids like oleic and linoleic acid, and packed with plant antioxidants providing a great source of vitamins A and C and also vitamins E and K. This promotes hydration and rejuvenation while also soothing and softening the skin and adding a pleasant scent.

Certification: Contains organic and fair trade ingredients and is free of animal products. Certified by Fair Trade, Natrue, the Vegan Society and is Halal. CO2 Neutral through Climate Partner.

Fair Squared have thought a lot about the afterlife of its products by introducing their Zero Waste range. Yes, you can send the glass, paper and aluminium lid for recycling if you want to, but these guys have made it possible to take things to the next level by going circular.

Collect ten of their Zero Waste containers to send back to them for refill, and they'll send you a voucher for 10 € off your next order. Go here for more.

Extra special kudos to them for replacing unrecyclable plastic EPE liners with Fair Trade rubber ones. Because of this, we love them forever.

Natural rubber does biodegrade, albeit slowly. If you're not going to take part in their Zero Waste refill scheme, please cut the rubber into the tiniest little pieces possible and place in your home composter, dig into your garden bed, or put in with the black bin rubbish.

Cleanse your face and rinse with warm water beforehand. Take a dab of the scrub with your finger and spread over your face and neck. Then gently massage in using a circular motion for no more than a minute. Take care not to rub too hard, or get the scrub in your eyes.

Rinse with warm water, pat dry your face and moisturise.
