SAN FRANCISCO, California (July 1, 2003) Barefoot Botanicals Ltd. announces two new hair care products - Hair and Scalp Rescue Shampoo and Conditioner - the first in the new S.O.S range of all-natural body care products. Free from petrochemicals and synthetics, the Save Our Skin range contains only ingredients derived from plants. Both formulas contain a superior blend of 24 active botanical extracts (many of them certified organic) including Tea Tree, Lemon Tea Tree, Lavender, Rosemary and Geranium along with Vitamins A, B5, C and E, essentials oils, Neem and MSM to support healthy scalps and beautiful, lustrous hair. Suitable for every member of the family including children and pets and appropriate for all hair types, S.O.S Hair and Scalp Rescue Shampoo and Conditioner contain no harsh detergents, synthetic fragrances, colors, preservatives or additives. The formulas are particularly suited for consumers experiencing dry, damaged hair and itchy, flaky, sensitive scalps. The shampoo and conditioner are both 200 ml. (6.76 fl. oz.) with a suggested retail price of $18 each.

Barefoot Botanicals is passionate about creating and selling the finest quality natural skin care and personal care products available using only ingredients of 100% plant origin. Says Wil Baker, President of Barefoot Botanicals Ltd., "In formulating these hair products, the company's founders Jonathan Stallick and Hilery Dorrian, both homeopaths, wanted to use herbs that were known to be particularly beneficial in supporting the treatment of eczema and psoriasis. The result is a shampoo/conditioner combination that is mild and very effective but devoid of chemicals that may cause irritation." The introduction of the S.O.S line follows on the heels of the company¡¦s luxurious Rosa Fina all-natural skin care range offering cleanser, toner, lotion, face cream, face oil and body lotion made with certified organic Rosa MoschataTM oil (rosehip seed oil) and synergistic botanics. All products are suitable for vegans and are not tested on animals.

The Barefoot Botanical Group was founded in London in 1998 and formed its U.S. subsidiary at the start of 2003. S.O.S products are available in health food stores, natural pharmacies and through mail order.
