Yaoh gains Ethical Consumer Best Buy accreditation
Yaoh's range of hemp bodycare has been awarded the Ethical Consumer Best Buy slot no less
than 4 times, with the shampoo, shower gel, sunblock and skincare recognised as leaders in their respective fields.
Ethical Consumer editor Rob Harrison said: "By identifying those companies such as Yaoh who consider ethics throughout their entire operation,
the Ethical Consumer Best Buy Label gives shoppers the confidence that they are making the best possible ethical and environmental choice.
The label is the definitive endorsement for people who want to put principles at the top of their shopping list."

Nak'd - new bars available
Get ready - cos these 3 new bars from Nak'd bar makers Natural Balance go the whole way,
a little bit further, and them some. Quite an incredible array of textures and flavours makes
these 3 brand new raw vegan fruit and nut bars a sure fire winner. The Berry Delight is filled
with raspberries and aptly named, the Cocoa Mint is sublime, imaginative and truly showcasing
how good vegan food can be, but the best has to be the Cocoa Delight, slightly reminiscent
of an original classic fudge bar, and completely passing the 'moreish' test. How does healthy
food taste so good? Oh my gosh.
