I’d not heard of Babassu oil previously, but it’s well-known in the beauty circles for its amazing (and magical) moisturising properties, as well as the ability to cool.
The Body Shop source their Community Fair Trade Babassu oil from The Cooperative of Agricultural Producers of Lago de Junco (COPPALJ), who are based in the north-eastern state of Maranhão in Brazil. The COPPALJ provides a fair wage for the 300,000 families who harvest Babassu, and also helps lobby on behalf of babassu-harvesting communities to help them protect the forest and their livelihood.
The lovely folk at The Body Shop sent me three products to try that contain Babassu oil. I’ve already reviewed the Nutriganics Drops of Youth™ in this post here, but here’s what I think about the other two gorgeous products!
Mango Whip Body Lotion, 250ml. £8 RRP
This product smells absolutely delicious; fresh and fruity! It moisturises like a dream, and leaves my skin feeling cool and smelling scrummy. Perfect for any mango fan!
Coconut Body Scrub, 200ml. £12.50 RRP
Not only does the Coconut Body Scrub exfoliate wonderfully, it also leaves my skin feeling super moisturised and ever-so soft after use! It’s coconut scent is good enough to eat (don’t!) and I always find myself having a whiff of this when I’m in the bathroom; it’s so yummy!
If you’ve started your Christmas shopping then I’d definitely recommend these products as delicious treats for your friends and family! All of the above products can be found on The Body Shop website or in store.
Once again, The Body Shop are doing something wonderful this Christmas and have teamed up with War Child, the global charity for children affected by war, to grant children the wish of education. With every specially selected gift you buy, The Body Shop will make a donation to War Child, so that you can send a child in a war-torn area to class and help them achieve their aim of providing more than 6 million lessons!
