Nutriganics from The Body Shop & a giveaway

The Body Shop Nutriganics Skin Care Range

While I like the core values at The Body Shop, but I’ve always wished that the company can make their mission more complete by promoting more natural and organic products. They do have some interesting products but every time I look at the ingredient lists, I just stop short of purchasing. Well, all this might change now that The Body Shop has just launched Nutriganics, their first certified organic skin care line!

The Body Shop Nutriganics is certified by ECOCERT
Nutriganics is The Body Shop’s certified organic skin care range which carries the world respected ECOCERT mark, and is a collection of 7 new products specifically designed to address the first signs of aging.  Although the prices are listed in US$ on the website, they seem very affordable for a certified organic range!  At the moment, they’re only available in US but I imagine the range would be introduced to other countries too.

Giveaway for one lucky reader from US
I was happy to receive an email from Lisa of Ignite Social Media about the new range and her offer to provide a package of the entire line as a giveaway to one lucky reader at Viva Woman! However, because the product is now only available in US, so this giveaway is limited to readers with a US mailing address only.

Seven items from Nutriganics worth US$140 for free
The entire package of 7 products is value at US$140 and includes:
1. Nutriganics Smoothing Day Cream $22
2. Nutriganics Smoothing Night Cream $24
3. Nutriganics Smoothing Serum $24
4. Nutriganics Smoothing Eye Cream $20
5. Nutriganics Foaming Facial Wash $14
6. Nutriganics Refreshing Toner $14
7. Nutriganics Smoothing Mask $22

Certification guarantees organic ingredients
I couldn’t find the ingredients listed on the website so I can’t comment on the products but you might like to know that ECOCERT is an internationally recognized organic certification that guarantees the genuine practice of environmental respect throughout the formulation and manufacturing of the product. The certification ensures that 100% of the total ingredients are of a natural origin.

    I really love the history of Body Shop-it really was one of the earliest international all natural skin care products.

  2. Caroline says:

    I love the naturalness that Body Shop entails. much more fresh than their other counterparts in the industr.

  3. Carol L says:

    What I really love about body shop arre their scents.

  4. Fig+Sage says:

    Can you please ask your PR rep to provide you with all the ingredients on the bottles so that you can post them here. Any EcoCert-certified product must have all the ingredients identified on the packaging.

    And are these products registered with EcoCert under a different name because they are not on Eco Cert list of “Certified Products & Companies” as found here:,127.html

    I think its also important to note that a product with an EcoCert logo does not mean “100% of the product is of natural origin”. 95% of the product must be of natural origin and only 10% has to be organic, in order for them to certify the product.

    If you could add the ingredients of all 7 products to this post & confirm which name they certified the products under with EcoCert, that would be greatly appreciated!

    The reason I know this & ask these questions is because I’ve encountered companies who claim to have certified their products, but never actually have. I’m not saying this is the situation here, but I’d like to be sure. Thank you for your help ~ I appreciate it!

    I like the Body Shop because they offer great quality for a pretty good price.

    Thank you, Sesame.

  6. Monique says:

    Hi! I love the Body Shop because the practice fair trading and their stuff smells good. I would love to win this set because I love the Body’s Shops products and would like to try out their new line. Thanks for the chance!

  7. Rennie says:

    What I like about Body Shop is that it does not test on animals which I really respect. I also really like their “community trade” policy where it helps third world countries by trading with them fairly. Products wise, I really like their seaweed line.

    Thanks for the giveaway~ bon chance to moi!

  8. Sandy says:

    My favorite all time product from The Body Shop is anything from their Satsuma line. It is such a happy, refreshing scent! I also really like how The Body Shop is so community minded from donating part of their proceeds to worthwhile causes to sourcing their ingredients from places in developing countries. This is an awesome giveaway. Hopefully, Lady Luck will me on my side this time. Cheers!

  9. Marie says:

    I’m thrilled that The Body Shop has (finally!) come out with an organic skin care line. I trust them with producing great quality products sourced from all over the world. In return, they give back to the community and set the example for other companies to trade fairly. I’m most excited about their Nutriganics Foaming Facial Wash as I’m on the quest to find a cleanser and makeup remover in one that would not strip my skin.

  10. sesame says:

    Hi Fig+Sage: You’re right about the Ecocert – that it does not mean all the ingredients are natural. I am banging on the hope that bigger companies are more responsible.

    But it was very strange for me not to see the ingredient list on their website because I’ve always managed to find it for their other products. I think it might be the newness of the product. I’ve mentioned the lack of ingredient but I’ll try to ask for it again. Not sure if the rep is able to provide cos it’s not their PR company. I didn’t even get the press release.

    If I do get it, I’ll post here again.

  11. Eve says:

    What I love a bout the body shop is it’s quality products and the fragrance they use. it smell so good and so rich, much beter than B&BW.

  12. Sherry B. says:

    I have tried several products from The Body Shop over the past few years and have never been disappointed either in their performance, quality, or price. I am also very respectful of their operating and production policies. Thank you so much for offering this prize!

  13. Elise says:

    I love the Body Shop for its testers. All i ever want to do there is smell all their lotions and fragrances. Mmmm!

  14. kiwi says:

    I like The Body Shop products because they do not test their products on animals! And also because their products always smell yummilicious! Yum!

  15. nora says:

    I love The Body Shop & have been a member for a couple of years.

    Love the good quality & the great fragrance for most of their products. The shower gel especially Mango really perks your morning shower!

  16. Fig+Sage says:

    Thank you ?

  17. Katherine says:

    I love the Body Shop because they are natural products and smell great. They’re been around for so long and I can remember using them for so long that I have become dependant on them! ?

  18. sharon says:

    Would like to enter the giveaway since I’m in US now! I love the body shop products and am so happy they’re introducing more organic products which is for sensitive skin.

    & Fair Trade is a huge plus so now we can take care of our skin and body and help poorer countries!

  19. JoJo says:

    I love their tea tree oil products and the fact that they give you free samples to test some of the stuff out without blowing your budget.

  20. ciambella says:

    I like The Body Shop’s Vitamin E cream–it’s probably the only moisturizer I’ve tried that doesn’t break me out but does exactly what it’s supposed to do anyway (moisturize).

  21. Heather T says:

    I also love how they don’t test on animals!! And their born lippy balms are awesome :D.

  22. Soos says:

    It’s so hot and humid here, my pores clog easily, and I need products that do the job but don’t make me feel greasier or drier. Thanks for the contest!

  23. mindy says:

    i like a company that deals in fair trade

  24. marge mckoen says:

    I love the body shop cause it has a huge variety and is great for me everyday and great for gift giving, and they never test on poor animals

  25. Carol says:

    I love the Body Shop primarily because they never test on animals, and are a cruelty-free company.

  26. yungjee! says:

    I love the Body Shop because they don’t test on animals, and they practice fair trade. ? Other companies need to do that. Plus, their lip balms are fantastic, and my dad uses the men’s after shave balm and it smells super good. ?

  27. Leanne C says:

    Being a user of the Body Shop (tea tree line), I like the Body Shop because their products are mild to skin and their scent is soothing. Their products are free of animal cruelty too. I just love trying different products from the Body Shop. In fact, I was at the mall few days ago when I saw those products at the shop. I am very excited about it and here you are, giving away Nutriganics. I would really like to win this giveaway because my skin is very prone to acne and I am constantly searching for a line that is non-comodogenic. I am confident that this certitied organic Nutriganics is safe for my skin.

  28. Elaine C says:

    I’ve been a fan of The Body Shops body butters. I really needs something to help my middle-aged skin. I’d love to try these products and would review them for you if you would like.
    I still have mild acne although I am 42 years old. I’d love to try a cruelty free product.

  29. Darcy B says:

    I love that they don’t test on animals–and I love the “fair trade policy”
    thanks for the chance to win some great products.

  30. heatherzilla says:

    Not only do I like the Body Shop for their great smelling products, I also like the values of the company. I can buy products and know that they have not been tested on animals and are fair trade.

  31. Mary Z says:

    Hi! I think the Body Shop is great. It has reasonable prices, products that smells good, and products that work. I would love to win and try this new line out and the products are certified organic, too.

  32. Lynn says:

    I have been a fan of Body Shop because of their supportive business model, caring values and wonderful products. I have often wished that they would lean more toward organic and natural products. Yeah! They have with this new skin care line. I would love to give it a try.

  33. Sharon A says:

    I have avoided using any products because of the chemicals, but as I age I need some help and organic products such as these would be great.

  34. star says:

    I’d love to win this because I’ve been wanting to try organic skincare

  35. Molly Capel says:

    I would love to win this, because I am pregnant & my skin is changing, so I would love to try some new organic products.

  36. Fiona O says:

    My skin problems began when I dutifully started to apply facial sunblock in my twenties. I learnt then that the wrong product from an unsuited brand can cause havoc to skin. Spending thousands of dollars on facial products which didn’t seem to work was frustrating.

    Finally I decided to try Bodyshop’s Aloe Vera skincare range. I have sensitive facial skin and fragrance is almost non-tolerable when applied on it. For years, the Aloe Vera skincare range provided me with peace of mind and controlled skin. I love it!!!

    I recently purchased the Nutriganics Smoothing Night Cream and though it has some mild fragrance, my skin seems to adapt to it. I am usually skeptical about trying new products given my skincare history but I was very pleased to know that finally there could be a skincare range (which is organic) and developed for fighting the first signs of aging.

    I would love to try the rest of BodyShop’s new Nutriganics skincare range so I hope I win the Nutriganics items!!! I know this skincare will not dissappoint me. Bodyshop has been a marvel for my skin.

  37. Sharon K says:

    I really like products from The Body Shop because some items are purchased and the money goes to charitable organizations. I would like to try this line because I have been using some organic products and is gentler than chemical products.

  38. Kelly Ann T. says:

    I would like to try these organic products on my dry, aging skin. Thank you for the giveaway.

  39. Margaret Z. says:

    I have been using products from The Body Shop since 10+ years ago. I love to try out this new line.

  40. Estela S says:

    I love that Body Shop products don’t feel harsh on my skin!! Please enter me to experience this new line!

  41. Roxy says:

    I love the Body Shop because I found their body butter to be excellent for moisturization and it really helped one of my friends with her eczema!

  42. Kat says:

    I don’t know why they discontinued their kinetin line, which is my favorite. I used it for 9 years. I was told the Nutriganics is supposed to be the replacement, but I am not convinced as the new line does not have kinetin as an ingredient. So we will see…

  43. Nat says:

    There is a chance this line comes to SG right? ?

  44. sesame says:

    I would suppose so but no idea when…
