Fair Trade Gift Basket
Dr. Bronner's Fair Trade Gift Basket includes the following: Fair Trade & Organic Shaving Gel (1), Fair Trade & Organic Lotion (1), Castile Bar Soap (1), Castile Liquid Soap (6 x 2 fl. oz.) and Organic Lip Balm (4), all packaged in a handmade Fair Trade basket. Note that the fragrances will be assorted, and the price includes S&H.
To source our baskets, we have partnered with PINARTE, a women's cooperative based in Cinco Pinos, a small village on the Pacific coast of Nicaragua. Starting in 1993 with a group of twelve women, the cooperative now employs over thirty women who make their living by weaving pine needle baskets. Sales of our Fair Trade Gift Baskets help to build a sustainable community in an extremely impoverished part of Nicaragua. Our baskets are environmentally-friendly, taking advantage of an abundant local raw material (pine needles).
Our Fair Trade & Organic Shaving Gels are perfect for both men and women. To use them, simply squirt a little bit of gel onto your hands (about the size of a nickel) and rub them together to create a good lather. Apply to the area you would like to shave and continue to rub into your skin, further enhancing the lather and preparing the skin for a good, clean shave.

Our Fair Trade & Organic Lotions are gentle enough to be used anywhere on your body, including your face. The lotions are highly emollient, so start with a small amount (about the size of a dime) and moisturize as needed. Read more about great ways to moisturize with Dr. Bronner's Magic Lotions on Lisa Bronner's Going Green blog.
Completely biodegradable and vegetable-based, our Castile Liquid Soaps have been called the "Swiss-army knife" of cleaning – usable for just about any cleaning task. These simple, ecologically formulated soaps are gentle enough for washing body, face or hair, but also powerful enough for tasks like dishwashing, mopping, laundry and even pest control. Different tasks call for different dilutions of the soap. To get you started with some basic uses, check out Lisa Bronner's "Liquid Soaps Dilutions Cheat Sheet."
Our Organic Lip Balms are great for lips, of course, but are also perfect for moisturizing and healing chapped and dry skin anywhere on your body. Use our Lip Balms to quickly treat dry hands or cuticles, to moisturize chapped chins or cheeks, or to provide relief for chaffed skin where needed.
