About organic Fairtrade sugar

Many small scale sugar cane farmers from Iturbe in Paraguay grow the organic sugar that we use in our skincare products. To preserve biodiversity, the growers use traditional, organic methods of agriculture that have been inherited from ancestors, rather than intensive agriculture in which the sugar cane is burned. The producers receive the Fairtrade minimum price for their sugar plus the Fairtrade premium, a bit extra to invest in community projects – the sugar plant or ‘Azucarera’ of Iturbe funds the education of hundreds of children in the town’s High School. In addition, Essential

Care, itself a small family-run company and Azucarera Iturbe have a Trading Partnership Plan that outlines how Essential Care will support the producers by increasing their knowledge of opportunities and trends in cosmetic ingredient markets.
