The Body Shop difference: Spa Wisdom Africa Ximenia & Salt Scrub contains Community Fair Trade shea butter is sourced from northern Ghana, where it has been used for centuries to protect skin from harsh Saharan winds.
How it works:
- Community Trade organic beeswax moisturizes and conditions skin while acting as a barrier to help seal in moisture.
- Community Trade shea butter moisturizes and softens skin.
- Salt grains gently exfoliate skin.
- Ximenia, an oil extracted from the ximenia tree native to Africa, helps soften the skin.
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.
