Our Body Butters are now better than ever

Superior Nourishment

There's 96hr moustire packed into every tub. Just scoop and slather on to help skin feel moisturised all day without feeling greasy or sticky.

Natural-origin Ingredients

Each tub boasts at least 95% natural-origin ingredients, including Community Fair Trade shea butter from Ghana. All our new Body Butters are even registered by The Vegan Society.

Sustainable tubs

Our new packaging is made with aluminium lids and 100% recycled plastic tubs. That means there's 241 tonnes less virin plasstic in the environment every year. Cool, huh?

What is a body butter?

Body Butters are rich, creamy concoctions that can be slathered onto skin as sparingly or as generously as you like. They help nourish, smooth and soften your skin from top to toe.

Our very first Body Butter was launched in 1992 after The Body Shop Founder, Dame Anita Roddick, discovered how the women in Ghana have used shea butter to nourish dry skin for generations. Since then, we’ve enriched every tub of Body Butter with this legendary ingredient.

Our new Body Butters are now made with 95% natural origin ingredients (sometimes even more!) and deliver 96 hours of nourishing moisture, making them the ultimate treat for when your skin needs that extra bit of love. And since we’re all about rich, buttery feels over here, your skin will never be left feeling greasy or sticky. Just ready-to-slip-into-silk-pyjamas kind of smooth.
