The Buys: The Body Shop's Shower Gels for Earth Lovers ($12) doesn't skimp on performance for sustainability — an infusion of aloe and watermelon extract douses skin with moisture and an uplifting (not sickly sweet) scent.

The Source: Organic fair-trade aloe vera is hand-harvested by local farmers in El Progreso, Guatemala, then processed within 12 hours to preserve its freshness and efficacy.

Feel-Good Factor: This first-ever 100 percent biodegradable shower gel (free of parabens, colorants, and sulfates) is housed in recycled plastic, nixing the carbon footprint created in manufacturing the packaging from scratch.
