I don't know if this is actually greenwashing or not but it seems to be like greenwashing how about fairtradewashing? I looked at the products they are talking about... they have a minimal amount of fair trade ingredients. When I think of fair trade body care ingredients I think of natural ingredients from nature... similar to organic. These products are loaded with synthetic chemicals. But they do carry a "made with fair trade ingredients logo" on the product.. .which they could not do if they did not have these ingredients but... the fair trade ingredients are minuscule part of the product formulation. Here is the ingredients list for the cleanser: http://shop.meetmark.com/shop/product.aspx?pf_id=39494&from=search&find_spec=fair%20trade&camp=201021&dir_delivery=1&rep_delivery=1 ingredients must be listed in the order of the quantity in the formulation, there is very little fair trade ingredients here most of the product. Many of the chemicals they are using in the products are harmful to people and to the environment. They are also calling the product: "do the right thing" what a sham. The ingredients list includes formaldehyde releasing chemical (IMIDAZOLIDINYL UREA), chemicals contaminated with ETHYLENE OXIDE, 1,4-DIOXANE (PEG-40 HYDROGENATED CASTOR OIL) and parabens (METHYLPARABEN)which are estrogenic compounds. I call this #fairtradewashing but the most disheartening thing is I found out about this on the TransFairUSA blog http://transfairusa.org/blog/?p=4183 they are promoting it... there is minimal amount of fair trade ingredients in the product... this seems like there should be some kind of standard for this by TransFair.
