What is a Body Yogurt?

Invented by the clever lab coats at The Body Shop, our Body Yogurts are 100% vegan, lightweight body moisturisers suited to all skin types. The non-sticky formula is fast-absorbing: perfect prep to keep long days smelling sweet.

In six heavenly scents, all enriched with Community Fair Trade organic almond milk from Spain, they’re designed to be smothered onto damp skin straight from the shower. So, if you never actually get round to moisturising because, well... life, then these might just become one of your new favourite things.

Life’s too short for waiting - jump straight into your jeans with our Mango Body Yogurt.

Three out of four users agree they can put their jeans on straight after application.

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF A BODY YOGURT?

1. FAST-ABSORBING

Our Body Yogurts are fast-absorbing, no clock-watching needed. Perfect if all you’re thinking each morning is ‘chop-chop’ – trying to fit everything in. Simply apply to damp skin straight from the shower to help lock in moisture. You can get right back to getting a wriggle on.

2. LONG-LASTING HYDRATION

Skin feels marvellously moisturised for up to 48 hours every time you slather on some of The Body Shop’s Body Yogurt. A few moments in the AM or PM can help to keep your skin feeling nourished and smoother for longer. Now that’s efficient.

3. LIGHTWEIGHT FEEL

Stickiness? Greasiness? Not on this skin. No doubt one of your fave Body Yogurt benefits will be its lightweight feel and gel-cream texture. Unlike some moisturisers that feel heavy or thick, our refreshing formula glides on like a dream, letting you shimmy into your jeans instantly after applying.

4. GORGEOUS SMELL

Why, it’s you! With six nature-inspired scents to choose from, whichever you opt for, you’ll find yourself (and whoever’s cuddling up to you) enjoying the fresh fragrance.

5. MADE WITH LOVE

Have you heard the buzz? Vegan body care is a balm for the soul as much as your skin – and our Body Yogurts are no different. Plus, each one is infused with Community Fair Trade organic almond milk, and, importantly, made without using any animal-derived products.

How to use a Body Yogurt

1. Jump out of the shower

No need to completely towel-dry before you set to work with this body care babe.

In fact, it’s better if you don’t, as The Body Shop Body Yogurt is formulated to work with the smattering of water droplets left on the skin’s surface from showering, to lock in moisture.

2. Dollop generously

Our Body Yogurt formula absorbs easily, so the more you want to apply, the merrier. Sink your fingers into the pot of product and slap a hearty amount onto your limbs, bum, left elbow, wherever you like.

3. Get on with your day

Take a moment – and it really will only take the briefest of moments – to massage it in all over your body, as it dries. Pick your towel back up off the floor, pull on your boots and go boss it.

What’s in our Body Yogurts?

All six of The Body Shop Body Yogurts are made using wonderful almond milk. It’s what helps give them their moreishly milky (yet vegan) appearance.

Almond Milk Body Yogurt

Why almonds? Well, those heroic nuts, and their oil, are widely thought to have skin-soothing properties. But it doesn’t end there…

Our Community Fair Trade Organic Almond Milk

The stuff we use isn’t just any old almond milk, it’s Community Fair Trade organic almond milk from Spain. We work with Mañán, the self-professed ‘Almond Experts’ of Alicante. They work with a cooperative of local, small-scale farmers and set a market price, which helps offer a bit of income stability. And their sustainable, low-impact farming methods protect the local habitat and even help wildlife like bees to prosper.

As if moisturising didn’t feel soul-soothing enough.

HOW DO OUR MOISTURISERS COMPARE?

Now you’re a bonafide Body Yogurt expert, you’re probably wondering whether Body Butter or Body Oil is any different, or better suited to your skin. Let’s look…

Shea Nourishing Body Lotion

Body Lotion

If you have a moment to let it sink in, this is the one for you. Our Shea Nourishing Body Lotion feels creamier than our Yogurts, but has a light texture. It helps even very dry skin to feel deeply nourished and helps replenish skin’s moisture levels for up to 72 hours. It is enriched with Community Fair Trade shea butter, a warm, nutty-scented ingredient which has been used for generations in Africa.

Body Butter

So, Body Butter vs Body Yogurt? Our iconic moisturisers are both beloved for being without any stickiness or greasiness, but Body Butter has a richer texture. This helps skin to feel supple and soft, by protecting it from dryness and soothing tightness. Our Almond Body Butter, among all our Body Butters, boasts an intense buttery feel. A good choice if you have drier skin.

Spa of the World™ Thai Makrut Lime Firming Oil

Body Oils

Choose an oil to target your very driest bits. Body oils have a liquid texture and are even suitable for massage, as well as moisturising the body. Our Spa of the World™ Thai Makrut Lime Firming Oil is enriched with marula oil and pleasingly zingy makrut lime. Like our Body Yogurts, this formula is also vegan. When massaged into skin, it helps to firm and tone the skin.

We love our Body Yogurts for their ability to take us from shower to oh-so-soft in super-fast time. That said, we also love to slow it down for a serious pamper sesh with Body Butters and oils, and we’ll never fall out of love with our favourite body lotions... Decisions, decisions!
