I think most of you already know that my family loves handcrafted soaps. We love trying new soaps and so we were excited to try the Cinnamon Spice, Rasberries & Creme and Honey Almond Vanilla from Basa Body. The soaps smell so good. We tried the Cinnamon Spice so far and we are really happy with it. These soaps are making showers more exciting for us and DD too.
While I am a fan of these natural organic products that work well, I am actually even more impressed by the background of the company.
It began with a trip to Kenya where we connected with wonderful, intelligent women working hard to feed their families. We met with the women of Mombasa and visited the first small-scale coconut oil plant called Coast Coconut Farms where they produced pure organic coconut oil by hand. Determined to find a way to assist them in selling their oil and to help them grow their business, we came home and through the help of many good people, created Basa Body (named after the women of Mombasa). It is our hope that by sharing this natural healing lotion with their inspiring story, we can help lift these women of Africa out of poverty and help them become self-reliant. Basa not only purchases all our coconut oil from CCF, but we also donate back 10% of our profits to projects in Kenya to fight poverty.
To support a great cause and benefit from the wonderful products that Basa Body offers, please go to its website to make your purchase.
Many thanks to Marna of Basa Body. She has generously offered a giveaway prize to one of my lucky readers (US residents only please). The giveaway winner will be able to choose from one of the gift packs from the MomBasa Body Blast Promotion.
