Westbrook, ME (PRWEB) January 12, 2009
Planet Botanicals ECOCERT® certified natural and organic skincare will be offered in the ECOGREEN gift bag at DPA's exclusive Pre-Awards Gift Lounge for the 2009 Golden Globe Awards, at the Peninsula Hotel in Beverly Hills January 8th-10th, 2009. Planet Botanicals embraces a unique approach to skincare that focuses on the properties, benefits and origins of each ingredient and the partnerships around the world that make their discovery possible.
The celebrity products that Planet Botanicals selected are inspired by the beauty secrets and gifts of nature from Africa - certified organic East African Shea Butter Body Balm and Shea Body Oil. "These products feature some of most skin-nourishing plant oils and aromatic flower extracts from the African continent including Marula, Kalahari Melon, Moringa and our newest ingredient, Baobab oil", said Michele Gilfoil, president of Planet Botanicals. "Our balms are especially nourishing and hydrating because they contain a rare type of shea butter only found in East Africa, highly prized for its light creamy consistency and nourishing properties", she added.
"Our entire product line is certified organic and natural by ECOCERT® and infused with artisan distilled essential oils, providing an aromatic delight for the senses", said Michele. Organic certification means that all organic ingredients, from the farm to the final product, are grown and harvested and produced without any chemical contaminants -- and that means healthy products for healthy skin and support for environmental sustainability.
Planet Botanicals newest ingredient is certified organic Baobab oil, rich in phytosterols, vitamin E and essential fatty acids, providing deep moisturizing and nourishing qualities. "Baobab oil has exceptional moisturizing and skin nourishing benefits and Baobab oil production benefits the local community in South Africa by providing income opportunities for women fruit collectors", said Michele.
Planet Botanicals partners with local communities, shea butter cooperatives and artisan distillers in Africa and other parts of the world to source its ingredients based on the principles of fair trade and environmentally sustainability. Together, we are forging a global community network of producers and consumers.
ECOCERT® is a global organic certification organization based in France with strict standards for organic and natural composition of ingredients, standards for environmentally friendly packaging and business practices, and quality control.
