Urbana, IA (Vocus) September 24, 2008 – Aura Cacia®, America’s leading aromatherapy company, has introduced Aura Cacia Fair Trade Certified™ Nourishing Body Polish (http://www.auracacia.com/auracacia/acproducts/acbath.html). The line of three aromatic body scrubs strips away dull skin with organic, Fair Trade Certified sugar cane granules and restores the skin’s natural vitality. Available in lavender, patchouli/sweet orange and ginger/mint blends, all three body polishes are free of synthetic fragrances, colors and preservatives.

“This is the first body polish that contains Fair Trade Certified raw sugar cane granules (http://www.frontiercoop.com/fairtrade/index.html) as an exfoliating agent,” says Mindy Seiffert, Aura Cacia’s Senior Brand Manager. “So not only do consumers receive a direct benefit for themselves, but their purchase also supports better lives for farming families through fair prices, direct trade, community development, and environmental stewardship.”

The aromatherapy benefits of the 100-percent pure essential oils (http://www.auracacia.com/auracacia/philosophy.html) used in the body polishes are especially pronounced in the bath and shower, where the aromas fill the air, the oils absorb readily into the warmed skin, and the spa-like environment enhances the bather’s experience. “Organic Fair Trade Certified raw sugar cane granules lift away dull skin and creamy shea butter, coconut oil, and vitamin E restore the skin’s vitality and radiance with every use,” says Seiffert.

Each of the three body polishes is packaged in an attractive, shatterproof, recyclable container and can be found on the shelves of independent natural retailers and Whole Foods Market stores nationwide. Aura Cacia Fair Trade Certified Nourishing Body Polishes are also available online at www.auracacia.com or by phone toll-free at 1-800-437-3301.
