Mango hand cream

Mango hand cream

“Lovely hand cream smells nice and kind to skin would recommend.”

Hand creams are our unsung heroes and this one packs a punch. This mango hand cream is a mini miracle, routed in Community Fair Trade mango seed oil, we work with the local women’s cooperatives within Manorama Industries in Chhattisgarh, India. Collected and all hand-peeled before the seeds are cracked and oil is extracted from the kernel of the fruit, which would otherwise be chucked away. What we love is that every bit of the mango is used hence why it’s known as ‘gold on the streets of India.’

Our Mango hand cream is brilliant for the skin thanks to its high antioxidant content and packed with Vitamin A and E making it an ultra-nourishing choice leaving hands feeling soft & smooth.

It might just be a hand cream, but it’s packed with amazing community-led stories which we’re proud to support with.

Shea body butter

Shea body butter

“Love this body butter, makes my skin so soft and it smells lovely! Would definitely recommend!”

When Anita was conceptualising our first Body Butter in her own kitchen, her daughter commented, ‘It’s like butter… for your body.’ Was this a conscious collaboration? No, but the sentiment of listening to others is something all activists need to be successful.

In addition to this, Anita sought collaboration with the Tungteiya Woman’s Association in Northern Ghana in 1994. This partnership is still going strong today – they handcraft our shea butter using traditional techniques, we give them a fair price, which helps empower them, gives them financial independence and supports their community.

Not only will you feel good using our Shea Body Butter, but your skin will be left feeling softer, smoother and intensely nourished with 96hr moisture.

Camomile Sumptuous Cleansing Butter

Camomile Sumptuous Cleansing Butter

“Best on the market, I wouldn't use anything else now..”

The ideal double cleansing skincare routine starts with one of our bestsellers, our Camomile Sumptuous Cleansing Butter. It’s our best cleanse product, a kind of cleansing balm, that helps to work away makeup, impurities, and grime wonderfully. It feels like everything is simply melting away. What a relief at the end of the day!

Not only is the main ingredient, Camomile extract, sourced locally from Norfolk, England, but the tin itself is reusable and recyclable. Ideal for changemaking (we know it can be tough stuff).

Cleanse today away and fight for change tomorrow.

Tea tree oil

Tea tree oil

“This product is amazing! It really helps to reduce my blemishes and oily skin. Can’t recommend enough.”

We describe our legendary Tea Tree Oil as small but mighty. Why? Because this tiny bottle – you only need one or two drops,  isn’t shy about the punch it packs. It’s powerfully purifying and so refreshing you can smell it.

We use naturally-sourced Community Fair Trade tea tree oil from Kenya, which provides a fair price and stable income for hundreds of farmers belonging to Kutoka Ardhini (which means ‘from the ground’ in Swahili).

You don’t have to be big and loud to be an activist. Just channel our Tea Tree’s mantra – small but mighty.

What kind of changemaker are you?

Changemakers can come in all sorts of shapes and sizes. They can wear different hats. A changemaker might want to call themselves an ‘activist’, they might not. A changemaker can stand up, or sit down, for what they believe in.

At The Body Shop we know that anyone who follows their instincts to change society for the better is a changemaker. But when all the styles work together towards a common goal, it’s electrifying. Here’s your guide to finding your own precious activist talent.
