    Rated 5 out of 5 by The Best Body Balm This is one of the best body balms I've ever used! A little bit goes a very long ways and it keeps your skin moisturized for hours. Very nice scent as well. I also love the jar it comes in. I will be buying more of these. Highly recommend. July 25, 2016
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Wonderful moisturizer A lovely body moisturizer. It almost melts on your skin and leaves it with just a subtle pleasant scent. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] July 21, 2016
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Really great body balm! I love this body balm! I've been trying to find a good body lotion/cream for some time, and this is one of the only ones I have found that moisturizes well. The scent is very light, which I like. The moisture lasts and lasts! I love it! July 20, 2016
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Hydrating I loved the spa wisdom body puree (not sure spell right) a long long time ago, maybe 2007 or 2008 when I lived in Japan. I was hoping this body balm smell like that one but I found that its "spa wisdom Africa" it smells different from that one but I like it too. I don't know what the smell is, it just smells like "spa" to me which is good, and more then the smell I want to focus more on the texture. Its something I would like coz its kind of between body lotion and butter, like body cream but a little goes long and moisturizes my skin the whole day. I brought it to my short trip to Las Vegas a while ago it was super dry and hot as you all know, this body balm helped me survived. Anyway it looks like it maybe discountinued? I would be very upset for that but I can't stock up more as I already have 3, I also have 5 cans of new body butter and 3 bottles of body lotion LOL Anyway I love it~!~ June 1, 2016

    • 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.
