BODY GOURMAND - Essential-oil-free moisturiser For Body, Belly, Lips and Hands with Cocoa and Camellia Oil
This organic body balm is a rich moisturiser for dry skin areas, for mum & bub, and for sun-damaged skin and lips. It has a very smooth texture and it smells like chocolate!
It does not contain essential oils, so it's perfect for pregnant or breastfeeding women, sensitive skins, and for babies and children.
It's also free of sweet almond oil to make it suitable for babies or children with topical almond allergies.
Smooth, solid texture. Easy to apply and deliciously melts on the skin.
It smells like a bar of chocolate with a hint of coffee! We used the natural organic oils in the formula to give it that unique, yummy smell.
No added fragrances, no essential oils.
Yellow, sometimes with a "frosted" appearance on top depending on the batch.
About the ingredients
Body Gourmand contains highly moisturising ingredients.
Shea butter has been used in Africa and other countries for years to improve skin and hair. Shea Butter has great moisturising and nourishing properties, plus it also protects the skin from UV radiations thanks to the Cinnamic Acid and Vitamin A it contains (SPF 4-6). Shea butter also has anti-inflammatory properties and helps with skin repair, making it a great natural product to apply on sunburn.
Mango butter is obtained by extracting the content of the mango seed and cold-pressing it into a creamy butter. Mango butter is an effective moisturiser, full of vitamin E that could help protect your skin from environmental stressors like sunlight and pollution. Mango butter also contains high concentrations of Vitamin C, which research shows stimulates the production of collagen.
Mango butter is often included as an ingredient in chocolates and other snacks.
Ucuuba butter gives the balm its unique "chocolate-like" scent. Native to Central and South America, Ucuuba Butter is a natural butter cold-pressed from the seeds of the Ucuuba tree. It is exceptionally rich in essential fatty acids and is often used to replenish, tone, and moisturise dry and mature skin.
How to use on...
Dry skin, hands & lips: warm in your hands and apply on dry areas.
Sun-damaged skin: apply on skin morning and night until the skin is fully repaired.
Mums: apply on areas prone to stretch marks and on sore nipples after breastfeeding.
Bubs: for eczema-prone babies, or for bubs with very dry skin, apply at every nappy change on dry skin areas.
In case of nappy rash, clean skin with water and apply on little bum before putting a new nappy on.

We are an australian family business
All our products are handmade with love in Melbourne, Australia.
We are very passionate about supporting the local economy. That's why all our ingredients are sourced from Australian companies, and all our labels are also supplied and printed by an Australian company.
Eco friendly packaging
We focus on using quality, re-usable or recyclable packaging.
Unfortunately, most dispensing systems, such as essential oil dripolators and glass pumps, end up in landfil. That's why many of our products are sold with a choice of closure: you can order the dispensing system you'd like the first time, and then re-use it for your next product.
The majority of skincare products use plastic labels. These also end up in landfil or break down in the ocean into micro-plastics. That's why all our labels are made of sustainably-sourced paper and are recyclable and biodegradable.
We do not use any plastic when packing your order.
