Planet Botanicals New ECOCERT Organic Certified And Natural Skincare Products Seen in Celebrity Swag Bags And At Henri Bendel This Week

This past weekend Planet Botanicals new products were seen in celebrity swag bags at DPA’s Pre-Emmy 2008 Style Lounge Retreat at the Luxe Hotel in LA.  This week, you can find their new ECOCERT-certified organic and sustainably sourced skincare collection making their debut at Henri Bendel in New York.  Media, retailers and consumers are invited to the exclusive one-week trunk show to meet founder Michele Gilfoil, learn about the new certification and sample Planet Botanicals’ unique product line featuring luxurious organic body oils and balms made with Baobab Oil, rare East African Shea Butter from Uganda, Marula, Kalahari Melon and Moringa oils.  The entire product line is certified organic and natural by ECOCERT and features rare plant oils and artisan-distilled aromatic flower extracts from Africa and around the world.

Planet Botanicals is showcasing its certified organic Baobab oil in a new body balm and body oil (perfect as we head into the colder days of fall). Baobab (Mbuyu) oil from South Africa is rich in phytosterols, vitamin E and essential fatty acids, providing deep moisturizing and nourishment. Baobab oil production benefits the local community in South Africa by providing income opportunities for women fruit collectors and an incentive for sustainable management of the Baobab tree. Sample rare organic East African Shea Butter from Uganda, highly prized for its light creamy consistency and skin-nourishing nutrients. Be one of the first to try it out this week at:

Henri Bendel, 712 Fifth Avenue, NY (at 55th Street)
