WHAT IS A BODY YOGURT?

Invented by the clever lab coats at The Body Shop, our Body Yogurts are vegan body moisturisers suited to all skin types. We’ve concocted them in six heavenly scents, all of which are enriched with Community Fair Trade organic almond milk from Spain. But the real cherry on top? They’re designed to be smothered onto damp skin straight from the shower. So, if you never actually get round to daily moisturising because you’re so busy darting in and out of the bathroom to get back to taking care of others, doing the dishes, fighting for the planet or even just running out the door, these might just become your new number one bathroom product.

They absorb easily into skin so you can go swiftly from shower gel to Body Yogurt to your daily toss-up between outfits at the wardrobe door (we see you). Regardless of how much time you have in the mornings or evenings for your shower or bath, these natty little numbers will slip seamlessly into your routine and help to leave your skin feeling more nourished and moisturised for hours. What’s not to love?

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF BODY YOGURTS?

1. Fast-absorbing

Our Body Yogurts are fast-absorbing, so there’s no need to carve out extra time or clock-watch to use them. Perfect if all you’re thinking each morning is ‘chop-chop’ – trying to fit everything in. Simply apply straight from the shower to damp skin to help lock in moisture. It sinks into skin so swiftly you can get right back to getting a wriggle on.

2. Quick to absorb

Taking seconds to absorb, yet helping to keep skin feeling marvellously moisturised for up to 48 hours – you might just think that time is on your side once you start using our Body Yogurts. Just a few moments to moisturise in the morning or evening can help to keep your skin feeling more supple and smoother for longer. Now that’s efficient.

3. Lightweight feel

Talking of how your skin will feel, sticky is not one of those things. No doubt one of your fave Body Yogurt benefits will be its lightweight feel in a gel-cream texture. Unlike some moisturisers that feel heavy or greasy, our Body Yogurt’s non-sticky formula glides onto skin like a dream, letting you shimmy into your jeans instantly after applying it.

4. Gorgeous smell

So, you’ve used our Body Yogurt to help skin hold on to hydration, look more radiant and feel smoother, hurrah. Now you’re off on your day and notice, wait... what’s that gorgeous smell? Why, it’s you! With six nature-inspired scents to choose from, each infused with Community Fair Trade organic almond milk, 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 like balm for the soul as much as your skin – and our Body Yogurts are no different. Each one is made with love, care and, importantly, without using any animal-derived products, so everyone can enjoy them and benefit from oh-so-many good vibes, not to mention intensely soft feels.

HOW TO USE A BODY YOGURT?

Like all moisturising, using our Body Yogurts is all about sinking your fingers into the pot of product and massaging a hearty dollop into limbs – from your drier bits like elbows and knees, to your soft lovely bits like your tum and bum. There’s no need to completely towel-dry before you set to work with this body care babe. In fact, it’s best if you apply the lightweight moisturiser to damp skin – a saving grace when you’re in a hurry. This is because The Body Shop Yogurt is formulated to work with the smattering of water droplets left on the skin’s surface from showering, and it locks in moisture so that skin feels nourished.

You’ll barely have time to do a boogie across the bathroom before it’s time to get dressed. And isn’t that what you want from your body care routine? Products that let you get on with, well, everything else. It makes fitting our Body Yogurts into your everyday routine a snap – you could take one of these nifty moisturisers to the gym or pool for an after-workout treat, or make it a part of your nightly bath and bedtime routine. Either way you’ll ensure you’re taking good care of your skin and reaping the longer-lasting reward of a head-to-toe healthy-looking glow. The only concern you’ll have is which of our six sumptuous scents to use.

THE BENEFITS OF ALMOND MILK

All of The Body Shop Body Yogurts are enriched with Community Fair Trade organic almond milk from Spain. So, what’s all the fuss about almond milk? This key ingredient, and the oil extracted from it, is widely thought to have skin-soothing properties, quenching skin’s need for moisture.

We work with the so-named ‘Almond Experts’ Mañán. This Alicante-based initiative helps ensure the cooperative of local, small-scale farmers benefits from a steady income and a stable partnership in providing the organic almond milk for our Body Yogurts. They use low-impact farming methods on almond plantations that protect the local habitat and even help wildlife like bees to prosper.

So whenever you use one of our vegan Body Yogurts, you’re not just helping to maintain moisturised skin.

When massaged into skin, it helps to firm and tone the skin.

So, what’s the difference between Body Butter and Body Yogurt? Our iconic moisturisers are both beloved for being without any stickiness or greasiness, but our Almond Milk & Honey Soothing & Restoring Body Butter, among all our Body Butters, boasts a rich, intense buttery texture. It helps skin to feel more supple and soft, helping to protect it from dryness and soothe tightness.
