Our Ximenia oil is grown wild in Northern Namibia. Ximenia fruits are harvested and processed mainly by women, from around 20 different villages.
“Across southern Africa wherever ximenia trees grow in woodlands and savannah, the oil is used to condition skin. Rich in oleic acid, ximenia provides protection for skin exposed to the drying forces of our environment. Whether it’s the natural heat and winds of southern Africa or the urban jungle, ximenia enhances and supports the skin’s natural barrier function, leaving it more supple.” – Jennifer Hirsch, Beauty Botanist for The Body Shop.
Massage gently over damp cleansed skin in circular motions, working into dry areas like elbows and knees. Rinse off then towel dry.
Expert tip: “For extra massage leverage and extra hydration, apply Spa of the World™ French Lavender Massage Oil on extra dry areas beforehand. You can also use The Body Shop® Bath Gloves for extra help to massage and exfoliate the skin while using the scrub.” – Vanda Serrador, Facialist and Body Care Expert for The Body Shop
