The Body Shop difference: Sensual Massage Oil contains Community Fair Trade marula oil from the Eudofano Women's Co-operative in Ondangwa, Northern Namibia. The marula tree is held to be sacred to the people of Ovamboland, and Namibian women have traditionally used marula oil for generations to smooth and moisturize their skin.
How it works:
Community Trade organic soy oil is rich in essential fatty acids to repair the skin¿s moisture barrier, restoring smoothness and suppleness.
Community Trade marula oil and Community Trade organic olive oil moisturize, condition and soften skin.
A blend of essential oils including Polynesian ylang ylang, kukui and Tahitian vanilla are known for their aphrodisiac properties and their sweet sensual fragrance as they help soothe the skin.
Now the 1750 Namibian women of the Eudofano Co-operative are building a business and a future on the ancient wisdom of marula. The oil they produce is cold-pressed to preserve its high quality, and enriches our products with its hydrating and smoothing properties.
