As a long time lover of coconut scented body products I found The Body Shop many years ago thanks to their incredibly rich Coconut Body Butter. You want super moisturized skin? This is the bomb-diggity. Combine that incredibly good body butter with the on point coconut scent and the powerful support of women and the Coconut Body Butter is perfection in a tub. The Body Shop recently sent me a gift, a personalized version of the Coconut Body Butter – could this be any more beautiful?? The Coconut Body Butter is actually a little thicker than butter and it leaves skin soft and smooth without any sort of a greasy feeling. Ingredients include Virgin Coconut Oil which comes from Samoa coconuts. The Body Shop works with Women in Business Development which helps teach local farmers new skills. The farmers crack the coconuts by hand and cold-press the flesh for this amazing ingredient. The other main ingredient is Shea Butter which is hand-crafted in Ghana by the Tungteiya Shea Butter Association. What makes my heart fill with joy is that this association is a group of over 475 women from 11 villages around Tamale, northern Ghana. The women make the butter from shea nuts, and this working relationship has provided these women the money to fund water pipes, medical care, housing,and education. The end result is an incredible body butter with a truly addictive tropical coconut scent. It feels so good on my skin, especially when I smooth it on right after a nice hot shower. And it feels so good to know that The Body Shop, which is dedicated to helping others and to protecting resources and animals, has also given women around the world so much empowerment.
