    Rated 2 out of 5 by NOT what it use to be!!! Sadly I was disappointed, after being so excited to know that i could order online, I used this product years ago and it was fabulous but the formula has definitely changed. It seems very light not rich and buttery anymore. I felt like it was no emollients in the product therefore giving it a watery like feeling, gel like consistency. Oh well, no longer a fan of this and I will not purchase again :) January 8, 2016
    Rated 2 out of 5 by Sorry but not for me. I like the scent of this product, but nothing else. Even that scent does not lust long on the skin. Just few minutes and then disappear. The product is so light and is absorbed rapidly, but after few minutes you don't have impression that you put anything. For the body balm I would expect it to be more dense. December 26, 2015
    Rated 4 out of 5 by Silky body butter If you are looking for something that is lighter than body butter, but heavier than body lotion this is it! It has a silky texture that absorbs into the body really quick. And it hydrates much better than body lotion. One flaw is that it's rather expensive than other products. I bought it at 50% sale price, and I would buy it again if there's another such sale. August 27, 2015
    Rated 4 out of 5 by Not Winter Proof I was expecting the texture of the body balm to have a thick consistency which is why it received a 4 star rating. If you have dry skin during the winter months this product is not beneficial. I recommend using this product during the Spring & Summer it smells fabulous, has a light creamy texture and goes well with the Body Scrub. February 3, 2015

  • KEY INGREDIENTSShow

    • Sesame Oil

      We source our Community Trade sesame seed oil from Nicaragua where it has been treasured as a beauty secret by the women of ancient Babylon. We have partnered with Nicaraguan farmers to produce our sesame seed oil, as it is a very labor intensive job and can only be harvested and picked by hand. Through trade with The Body Shop, the JFPS (Juan Francisco Paz Silva) co-operatives have been able to establish and strengthen their global sesame seed export business. Many of our iconic bath & body products include the sesame oil they provide us to moisturize and soften skin.

    • Shea

      Our Community Trade shea butter is hand-crafted in Ghana by the Tungteiya Shea Butter Association is made up of over 475 women in 11 villages around Tamale, northern Ghana. Each woman takes two days to carefully produce the 25kg of butter; the rich kernels of 28 shea nuts are packed into every ultra-moisturizing Shea Body Butter. Our trade partnership with the Tungteiya Association has provided them with income and money to fund water pipes, access medial care and better housing and education. They ultra-nourishing shea butter we receive from them makes up our highly-nourishing, best-selling Shea bath & body range.
