Shea Butter Soap
I don't usually blog about anything other than fashion and style but today I am making an exception. I have for a while looking for a great soap for sensitive skin that is moisturising and nourishing and also adds a bit of luxury to my daily routine. Shea butter soap from L'OCCITANE is just what I have been looking for. It is a nautural product made of 100% vegetable base with shea butter and verbena.
To add to the feel good factor, L'OCCITANE works directly with women's Shea-processing collectives in western Africa, supporting economic recovery and a heritage of natural harvesting traditions. The packaging is also very nice, understated but stylish. Using this soap makes me feel tres chic. Not surprising as L'OCCITANE was founded in Haute Provence drawing inspiration from Mediterranean art de vivre and traditional Provencal techniques.
