AUSTIN, Texas, 2017-Mar-22 — /EPR Retail News/ — In celebration of Beauty Week 2017, Whole Foods Market is offering special discounts on its wide selection of facial care and cosmetics. From March 22 to 28, all facial care and cosmetics will be 25 percent off. In addition, on Friday, March 24, stores will offer limited edition beauty bags for $18 apiece, while supplies last.
The beauty bag is made from organic cotton and is handcrafted by talented artisans in India using traditional techniques of dabu indigo mud-printing, power loom weaving and hand-tasseling. Valued at $90, the custom bag contains Whole Foods Market’s beauty favorites, including Dr. Hauschka, evanhealy, Juice Beauty, Trilogy and more. Beginning March 22, shoppers can enter a sweepstakes for a chance to win their own limited edition beauty bag through posting on Instagram or Twitter using #CleanBeautyFaves.
“We’re thrilled to host our third annual Beauty Week and to offer great deals on our selection of beauty products,” said Maren Giuliano, global Whole Body executive coordinator at Whole Foods Market. “The quality standards for our beauty department are unparalleled, and we hope shoppers will find their new favorite beauty product in our department during Beauty Week.”
Whole Foods Market’s beauty department has been lauded for years. 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; and in 2015, Giuliano was recognized by Women’s Wear Daily as one of the “50 Most Powerful Women in Beauty.”
There are more than 75 ingredients common in conventional body care products that are not allowed in any body care products Whole Foods Market sells, including phthalates, microbeads, triclosan, BHT, BHA and aluminum chlorohydrate. Whole Foods Market also created its own standards for organic labeling on personal care products, as there are no mandatory government standards for “organic” claims in the body care industry.
