    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Relationship Saver! My partner has very sensitive dry skin and his scratching at night would keep me up and drive me mad! We tried some of the Shea butter because it smelled nice and claimed 48hour moisture. HE STOPPED SCRATCHING!! I can sleep now and we have recently purchased four jumbos he loves it so much! Thank you Body Shop!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Be sure to get the jumbo Shea is known for it's moisturizing effects and this one does not disappoint. I massage this into my feet every morning keeping them soft even during a cold, dry winter. Never have cracked heels. The residue on my hands is then carefully pulled thru my hair for extra shine and moisture.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Scent smells different Did the Body Shop change the scent of this product? I recently bought a new container and it smells very different and not as good. The texture has changed from a buttery texture to a more of a creamy one. Sadly I don't think I'll be purchasing this product again.

    Can this product be used on the lips?

    I have very chapped lips so I was wondering whether or not this shea butter is appropriate to use on lips. If not, could you please recommend one of your products that would be effective on chapped lips? Thank you.
    Asked by: Jayzee
    It's not intended as a lip moisturizer, so I think something like the Coco Butter Lip Care Stick or any of the Lip Butters would work best.

    Why is this under the filter Paraben free when the ingredients clearly state that ther are Parabens in this product.?

    I bought this because of the filter Paraben free on your website and was really disappointed that I wasted my money.
    Asked by: Clare

    Is this body butter paraben free or not? It comes up as paraben free when I tick on the side bar, but is listed in ingredients.

    Asked by: laraelo
    NO, there are at least two types of parabens in here including methylparaben. It says so on the label on the bottom of the container, which they conveniently hid underneath a sticker.

    • Babassu

      Community Trade Babassu oil is extracted from the nuts of the wild babassu palm tree, found on the fringes of the Amazon rainforest in Brazil. Our supplier, The Cooperative of Agricultural Producers of Lago de Junco (COPPALJ) is based in the north-eastern state of Maranhão in Brazil. It comprises over 150 members from 12 communities. The babassu tree has become an important subsistence resource in Maranhão, where over 300,000 families harvest babassu and are often dependent upon this activity for their economic survival. COPPALJ provides a fair wage, and also helps to lobby on behalf of babassu-harvesting communities to help them protect the forest and their livelihood. Learn More →

    • Beeswax

      Our Community Trade honey and beeswax suppliers use hives hand made from bark, hung high in the forests, to collect our Community Trade honey. To the bees these are penthouses hung high in the trees. The honey they make is some of the finest in the world, as the bees visit flowers unspoilt by pollution or pesticides. Learn More →

    • Cocoa Butter

      We source our Community Trade cocoa beans from the Kuapa Kokoo Farmer’s Union in Ghana. Now the largest Fair Trade co-operative in the world, Kuapa Kokoo has been trading with The Body Shop since its formative years, growing from a few hundred members to representing 78,000 smallholder cocoa farmers! We receive high quality cocoa from the Farmer’s Union which helps us make luxurious cocoa butter for our products; in return, our trade helps provide a steady, fair wage for the members of Kuapa Kokoo, so that they can improve their living standards and invest for the future.

    • Shea Butter

      Our Community Trade shea butter is sourced from northern Ghana, where it has been used for centuries to protect skin from harsh Saharan winds. We work with The Tungteiya Women’s Shea Butter Association to produce the rich shea butter we use in our products. The Body Shop provides the 528 women of the Association with a fair wage, and also pays a premium for the women to invest in community projects. Anita Roddick placed our first order in 1994 after an earlier visit to Ghana where she discovered the natural moisturizing properties of shea butter and the amazing women who produced it.
