UAE: Organic Pharmacy Opens Flagship Store

The Organic Pharmacy, the UK-based company with herbal and homeopathic products, urban day spa and clinic, has officially opened its flagship store in Wasl Vita Mall, Dubai. The 1100 sqm store and spa is the second branch to open in the UAE, with the Dubai flagship store set to cater to the growing demand for organic beauty treatments in Dubai.

Already established in eight stores around the world, including London Kings Road, Kensington High Street, Covent Garden, Great Marlborough Street and Hampstead Village and in America in New York and Beverley Hills, LA, the Dubai branch will become its ninth store to promote certified organic products with no artificial preservatives, colourants, fragrances, petrochemicals, harsh detergents, DEA and TEA, toxic ingredients and animal testing.

"The market is responding very well to organic products and it was pertinent for us to set up shop in one of the most robust cities in the world, Dubai," said Margo Marrone, Founder of The Organic Pharmacy.

"Our stores around the world all embody the essence of living an organic lifestyle and we have seen the need to support this same culture that is evolving on local grounds. We are delighted to officially launch our Dubai store and look forward to meeting new customers and supporting the acceptance of change to using organic products." states Margo.

OM Comment
The Organic Pharmacy is in expansion mode. It is one of many natural & organic cosmetic companies opening concept stores across the globe. The flagship store is likely to do well in the international city of Dubai. Organic Monitor research finds the UAE has the largest market for natural and organic cosmetics in the Middle-East.

Brazil: Feitiços Aromáticos gets Sustainability Recognition

The Brazilian company Feitiços Aromáticos has received recognition for its sustainability accomplishments from B Lab. The US organisation assesses the compliance of companies applying for the B Corporation global certification, which recognises micro, small and medium businesses around the world achieving the best results in good sustainability practices by meeting rigorous standards of social and environmental performance, accountability, and transparency.

More than 1,200 corporations from over 120 industries were assessed. Evaluation criteria included the company’s social and environmental impact. The B Lab organisation grants the certification to companies that successfully pass the validation process.

"It’s almost surreal for a small business from the East side of São Paulo, to be highlighted with such a huge award. However, it is a great support that encourages us to carry on building up our business brick by brick," said Raquel Cruz, co-founder of the company.

Feitiços Aromáticos produces aromatherapy products, colognes, natural cosmetics and a line of sexy cosmetic products. With an eye on the international market, the company also created the brand Brasil Aromáticos.
