Whole Foods Market to offer limited edition hello beauty bags during beauty week
By Carla Snuggs
In celebration of Beauty Week 2016, Whole Foods Market is offering deep discounts on select natural and organic beauty products. From March 18 to 20, all facial care products will be 25 percent off regular price. On Friday, March 18, stores will offer limited edition “hello, beauty” bags for $15 each.
The bags are made by Riji Green, which is a business committed to ending human trafficking. Valued at $80, each bag includes products from Acure, Burt’s Bees, derma e, Dr. Hauschka, evanhealy, Mineral Fusion, MyChelle, Pacifica, Trilogy and Weleda.
If you truly care about what you're putting on your skin and you haven't been to your local Whole Foods Market lately, you must check out their beauty department. You can get so more than almond butter and grains in bulk at Whole Foods – they have a fine selection of natural and organic makeup and skincare products. And what's more:
- In 2012, the Campaign for Safe Cosmetics named the company “the leading national retailer” in personal care product safety
- In 2014, the grocer was named runner-up in the Sustainable Beauty Awards’ “Sustainable Leadership” category
- Whole Foods Market set its own standards for organic labeling on personal care products, as there are no mandatory government standards for the “organic” label claim on body care products.
