The Body Shop’s Body Butters just got better


The Body Shop launched the first ever Body Butter in 1992. Created in the kitchen of no less than The Body Shop founder Dame Anita Roddick, the very first Mango Body Butter was given its name by her daughter who, while making a piece of toast, simply said, “It’s like butter…for your body.” The rest is history.

Today, these iconic moisturizers are loved so much that one is sold every three seconds across the world. And now, these body-loving favorites just got even better.  

The new Body Butters are now registered by The Vegan Society, a gold standard for vegan certification.

The new and improved Body Butters are made with at least 95% natural origin ingredients, including handcrafted Community Fair Trade shea butter from Ghana, which harnesses the nourishing power of Community Fair Trade shea butter from the Tungteiya Women’s Association in northern Ghana.

In true Fair Trade fashion, this helps provide financial independence for Ghanaian women. Today, over 600 women from 11 villages handcraft the shea butter using an 18-stage process of traditional techniques, passed on mother to daughter for generations. 

Delivering 96 hours of intense moisture, the Body Butters leave your skin feeling soft and smooth without feeling sticky. In fact, in a The Body Shop study, over 90% users agreed the formula easily melts into skin and has a non-sticky feel and over 86% agreed the Body Butters made them feel good in their skin.  

With new fully recyclable packaging, these are The Body Shop’s most sustainable Body Butters ever. They’re all made with aluminium lids and 100% recycled plastic, including Community Fair Trade recycled plastic collected off the streets of Bengaluru, India, through The Body Shop’s trade partnership with Plastics for Change. 

The Body Shop’s new Body Butters are available in Strawberry, British Rose, Pink Grapefruit, Satsuma for normal skin; Moringa, Mango, and the new Avocado for dry skin; Shea, Coconut, Argan, and Olive for very dry skin; and Almond Milk for dry, sensitive skin. 

The Body Shop’s customers are encouraged to join the Return, Recycle Repeat program in partnership with SM Cares. Simply return your empty, clean, and dry containers in any of The Body Shop stores located in the malls.

The new Body Butter is available at The Body Shop stores and online.
