Basa Body All Natural Lotion: Review and #Giveaway

Tuesday, October 18, 2011 Posted by Dina N


Basa Body All Natural Body Lotion is made with organic Kenyan coconut oil. You  know how I love my coconut oil, right? It's in my kitchen, in my bathroom, in my cleaning supplies and of course, in my creams and lotions.

Besides, the Basa Body lotion has no parabens, no artificial fragrances, and no irritating chemicals. And it smells soo good! Did you know that virgin coconut oil is easily absorbed by the skin and gives it a smooth, healthier appearance? It's true - I see it every time I use my favorite lotions and potions that are based on coconut oil. This amazing oil contains natural antioxidants that are antimicrobial, antibacterial, and antifungal. Hooray for coconut!

Basa Body is a socially conscious company that gives 10% of the profits to humanitarian work. The story of this company started in Kenya, and is quite inspiring.

The Basa Body story began years ago with a single trip to Kenya. We connected with wonderful, intelligent women working hard to feed their families. Their small-scale enterprise was called Coast Coconut Farms, where they produced virgin, organic coconut oil by hand.

Intrigued by their commitment, skill, and entrepreneurial spirit, we were determined to help these women tell their story and grow their business. The result is Basa Body, named after the women of Mombasa, Kenya, where Basa's coconut oil is produced.
