Cocoa Butter Body Butter


Cocoa Butter Body Butter

What it is:An intensively rich all-over body moisturizer.What it does:This luxurious body cream easily absorbs into the skin, helping to condition, smooth, and soften dry areas.What it is formulated WITHOUT:- Sulfates- Phthalates- GMOs- TriclosanWhat else you need to know:The raw ingredients in the Body Shop's Body Butter range are warmed to a high temperature, and then the product is put into jars and cooled to create a specific structure. The process is similar to making chocolate and achieves a firm consistency. The Community Fair Trade cocoa butter is sourced from the Kuapa Kokoo in Ghana. Cocoa trees are too fragile to climb so farmers use long-handled knives to cut off the pods that contain the cocoa beans, which are rigorously checked to ensure the highest quality. This cream is suitable for normal to dry skin types.

Questions & Answers for The Body Shop Cocoa Butter Body Butter

Question
What scent?
Wondering if this has a strong scent? I wear perfume sometimes and don't want them to clash and smell too strong...

I've tried the lemon-scented one (not sold at Sephora?) and it's really, really powerful - is this the same?

I have never smelled the lemon. I know the Satsuma (clementine) is rather powerful, however the shea and cocoa butter are nice, yet subtle. I enjoy these scents alone and they do not interfere with a stronger fragrance. Perhaps the citrus scents are just more robust?

You can definitely smell the "Cocoa-ness" of it. I would wait to put on purfume until it fades a little - usually an hour or two later. But it's a lovely smell, like the beach and definitely not as strong as the "Coconut" Body Butter.

It's a very light nutty smell. I often use it when my sinuses are irritable so smells don't bother me. It fades after a few minutes too, so it won't over power your perfume. I have the satsuma body butter too and that one is much stronger scented.

I sampled all the ones at the Sephora store, and have to say the Cocoa butter has the least scent - if almost no scent. Its kind of choco-nutty smelling in the container, but after you apply it it fades away pretty quickly. I don't find it clashes with perfume. I will say the others at Sephora that I sampled where definitely more strongly-scented, most of which gave me a headache (Shea, Olive, Satsuma, Mango).

The scent isn't terribly strong. It doesn't overpower my perfume.

In my opinion the best scent to pick up is the shea butter. The scent is lighter and not overpowering the others may overpower upon application but fades out after awhile.

Yes it has a pretty strong cocoa butter scent. Try the Shea Body Butter instead, it's less strong.
