The Body Shop Hemp Body Butter


It's time for yet another body butter review. This tie the Hemp one. The only other product I've usedin the Hemp range was the Hemp Hand Cream and that was pretty good.

The Body Shop claims:
Repair dry skin using an ultra-rich, herbal-scented cream that moisturizes and conditions for up to 24 hours.

Scent:
Let's talk about the smell first. Now it smells...very earthy. And I have a feeling that a lot of people won't like the scent. I was a little prepared for it since I've used the hand cream. The scent isn't really that bad. It will take some getting used to though.

Moisturization:
Excellent. I love the way this makes my skin feel. It's the most moisturizing of all the body butters.

Texture:
At first I was scared of the texture. It looked quite scary sitting in the tub. It's a light green color that takes a lil getting used to. But once I scooped up a little and rubbed it on, it felt like skin. Love the texture.

Ingredients:
Water (Solvent/Diluent), Hemp Seed Oil (Emollient), Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea Butter) (Emollient), Cyclopentasiloxane (Emollient), Theobroma Cacao (Cocoa) Butter (Emollient), Glycerin (Humectant), Orbignya Oleifera (Babassu) Oil (Emollient), Glyceryl Stearate (Emulsifier), PEG-100 Stearate (Surfactant), Cetearyl Alcohol (Emulsifier), Lanolin Alcohol (Stabiliser/Emollient), Phenoxyethanol (Preservative), Fragrance (Fragrance), Methylparaben (Preservative), Propylparaben (Preservative), Xanthan Gum (Viscosity Modifier), Benzyl Alcohol (Preservative), Disodium EDTA (Chelating Agent), Tocopherol (Antioxidant), Talc (Absorbent/Bulking Agent), Sodium Hydroxide (pH Adjuster), Chromium Oxide Greens (Colour), Iron Oxides (Colour).
