Winter is almost here, and the dip in temperatures means that our skin needs an increase in hydration and nourishment. To keep the skin supple, and soft, The Body Shop, a British-born international cosmetics & personal care brand, has launched its Avocado Body Butter, further expanding its Avocado-based Body Care range.

It’s well-known that avocado is a superfood with a hoard of benefits for our health, especially for our skin. As a rich source of monounsaturated & polyunsaturated fatty acids and Vitamins A, D, and E, avocados are immensely beneficial in moisturising and conditioning our skin, protecting it from UV rays and improving its elasticity.

Formulated with 96% ingredients of natural origin, The Body Shop’s Avocado Body Butter will replenish your skin with the required moisture and protect it from dryness and wrinkles for up to 96 hours. The creamy, aromatic body butter contains sustainably sourced Hass avocado oil from South Africa, which is the heart of the product, handcrafted Community Fair Trade Shea Butter from Ghana, and Community Fair Trade Brazil Nut Oil from Peru to enrich your skin with the required moisture that will help avoid dehydration without making it sticky or greasy.

The Body Shop’s Avocado range also includes a shower cream, a body lotion to oil, a hand balm, and a body scrub. For instance, the Avocado Body Scrub is a rich exfoliator that gently buffs your body to get rid of dead cells, leaving your skin smoother, while the Shower Cream, formulated for dry skin, ensures an indulgent shower experience that cleanse, soothe, and hydrate your skin. Further, to ensure your hands remain moisturised, the Hand Balm gives your nails, palms, and cuticles some round-the-clock TLC. Finally, The Body Shop’s Avocado Lotion-to-Oil is a refreshing, light-scented lotion designed to soften and soothe dry, taut skin and give it a healthy glow. All these products contain the goodness of avocados and are 100% vegan with sustainable and recyclable packaging.

The new body butter comes in recyclable packaging made with an aluminium lid and a plastic tub that’s made from recycled plastic. Besides, The Body Shop’s avocado supplier has a Zero Landfill policy, meaning that all the fruits that aren’t used for producing oil become compost. It’s also certified by The Vegan Society and dermatologically tested, staying true to the brand’s commitment towards protecting the environment and enabling consumers to love their beautiful selves.
