Comments about The Body Shop Shea Body Butter:

I really loved this lotion because it smells so heavenly,morstrizes like a dream and I smell nice most of the day not really all day. With that said if I had known there were parabens in this I would not have fallen in love with this. They cancelled the back of the ingredients so unless Ulta allows you to peel it off then you would know it had a bad ingredient list. Now if you are not a paraben/ingredient freak like me then this lotion is for you but if you are then pass on it. The thing is the body shop really didn't need to use preservatives for something like shea butter but they did. I don't like that for every 10 body butters only one doesn't have parabens. Why can't they make all of their body butters without parabens.

                    My husband has very dry skin and this is the only cream that he will use. I have purchased other bargain brands and he tries them once and hates them. This one we buy over and over again and it really helps take care of his dry skin.

                      • Q:

                        What does the Shea Body Butter smell like? Is it a strong scent that lasts throughout the day, or is it a milder scent that disappears after you rub it in?

                          Thank you for contacting The Body Shop. Shea Body Butter is our mildest scent. It has a very subtle, very neutral nut scent.

                          A:

                          The Body Shop does not claim that this product is hypoallergenic. The Body Shop products do not list an expiry date on the packaging. Typically, the shelf life for all new products that are unopened is three years. After opening, we recommend that customers finish using the product within 12 months. You will also notice that there is an 'Open Jar' symbol on the labels of most of The Body Shop products. The symbol looks like an opened lid with a number and the letter "M" on it. The number symbol indicates the number of months after the product has first been opened by the consumer that it will remain in a suitable condition for use. This is often referred to as the "period after opening". The Body Shop has included this symbol on labels to act as a reminder to consumers that cosmetic products should not continue to be used for excessively long periods, once they have been opened and used.
