Giveaway Update: Now there will be 2 Winners AND the giveaway is open to US AND Canada!
It seems like these days everyone is looking for natural products, especially in skin care. I love that Basa Body products contain:
NOHARSH IRRITATING CHEMICALS
All Basa Body products are made with Virgin Organic Coconut Oil that is easily absorbed into the skin and has natural antioxidants that are antimicrobial, antibacterial, and antifungal. Before I tell you more about their wonderful products, I need to tell you more about the company itself.
Their story began with a trip to Kenya where the Basa Body Team was connected with intelligent women working hard to feed their families. Their small-scale enterprise was called Coast Coconut Farms. There they produced virgin organic coconut oil by hand. The Basa team was inspired and determined to help them grow their business and tell their story. Basa Body was named after the women of Mombasa, Kenya where the coconut oil is produced. They want to help these women of Africa lift themselves out of poverty and become self-reliant. Basa Body imports all of their oil Coast Coconut Farms.
As well as providing a sustainable income and employment for the women of Coast Coconut farms, Basa Body also donates 10% of its profits to humanitarian projects in Kenya. Yehu Microfinance is one of our partner organizations and has helped over 18,000 women secure loans to start their own businesses and help themselves and their families rise out of poverty.
Basa Body gave me the opportunity to try their Basa Body Stick as well as their Basa Body Lotion.
I love the idea of the body stick! I love that I can put lotion anywhere on my body quickly without having to get lotion on my hands. It was slightly oily / greasy but it does absorb in well. I like using the Basa Body Stick on my knees, ankles and elbows. Those spots seem to get extra dry and rough now that we have put the heat on. The only ingredients are 100% Virgin Coconut Oil and Beeswax. It has a very faint, yet pleasing scent.
The Body Lotion had a slightly stronger scent, but it was still fairly light. I like that the scent comes from natural ingredients, not some chemically manufactured scent. The lotion absorbs into the skin pretty fast. My hands feel so soft and smooth after using this lotion. I like to use this after I get out of the shower, especially if I have just shaved my legs.
Between providing sustainable income for the women in Kenya who work at the coconut farms, to donating to humanitarian charities, Basa has a truly unique story to share.
