Tracing The Journey Of The Ingredients In Your Favourite Beauty Products

In 2018, farm-to-face beauty brands are rightly getting their time in the sun, but several names have been repping transparency for some time now. Jurlique, Tata Harper and Ilcsi have long advocated a clear chain from harvest to bathroom shelf. As, too, has The Body Shop, which has worked with farmers globally to source ingredients since founder Anita Roddick established the brand.

Publishing the details of its Community Trade programme means you can trace the exact farming community that a hero ingredient comes from, whether it’s hemp seed oil from France or tea tree oil from Kenya. The brand’s latest products, launching this May, will contain the harvest of the Dufatanye Co-operative’s crops. Along with Asili Natural Oils, a social enterprise which works with brands to produce the best outcomes for small hold farmers in Rwanda, we followed the moringa plant – a skincare ingredient loved for its anti-ageing properties – from Dufatanye’s farm in Rwanda to The Body Shop’s final product…

Client Testimonies

“Asili Oils is a very reliable supplier. They produce high quality oils with a careful selection of natural ingredients. Being based in Europe, it is a great asset to partner with Asili that is not only able to produce quality products in a timely manner but also provide all the documents required by the E.U regulations on cosmetics products. I would definitely recommend Asili to any small or bigger businesses in the cosmetic industry.”

“Knowing where your beauty ingredients come from is far more complex than sourcing the dairy you drink; there are countless steps, and many people involved, which is where the potential for unpaid labor, unfair deals, and unmonitored formulations can arise. There’s more at play than just knowing that what you’re putting on your face is regulated, and that’s the long journey behind every ingredient in your medicine cabinet.”
– Refinery29, a global media company

“We searched for a partner to supply us with oils that we use in our production process – we were particular in that we wanted to work with a partner on the continent who ethically farms and carries out production in Africa. We also needed the peace of mind that we were getting the purest ingredients – we are proud to have found Asili and to have worked with them for the past few years. Being in a different country we were also very impressed and are continuously impressed with their professionalism in the ordering and shipping process. We are extremely grateful to have found Theo and the team at Asili who always go the extra mile and were willing to accommodate as many of our requests as they could. Asili are a true partner in our growth.”
