Basa Body Review and #Giveaway

I was genuinely excited once I opened the sample of Basa Body Lotion provided to me for review. It has such a crisp coconut fragrance that I was instantly brought back to summer and the smells of the beach, tanning, ice cream...Its amazing how a smell can do that!

The real treat is how POWERFUL this lotion is! My skin is HORRIBLE in the fall and winter. The minute the heat goes on in the house my hands are done for! This lotion was immediately absorbed and left my hands almost glowing and shiny. So much so in fact, that I thought they MUST be greasy- (You've tried lotions like that!) but they were not. This was a genuine softness, after ONE application!!

More importantly, they are doing great things to improve social and economic conditions for women in Africa. When I found out that Basa Body is made in Kenya by wonderful, intelligent women working hard to feed their families, I was instantly impressed! Their small-scale enterprise was called Coast Coconut Farms, where they produced virgin organic coconut oil by hand.

Basa skin care products are fresh, 100% natural, and made from only the finest ingredients. They are free from harsh chemicals and parabens that irritate the skin. Products are made in small batches to ensure quality and freshness. They are safe for even the most sensitive skin. Ingredients are kept to a minimum so you can feel safe using them for yourself and your family, even your little ones. Healing virgin coconut oil from Coast Coconut  Farms in Kenya is a key ingredient in every Basa Body product.

A few years ago, Basa partnered with a coconut oil farm run by women in Mombasa, Kenya, who provide top-of-the-line virgin coconut oil for all of Basa’s skin-care products. Basa also gives back 10% of their profits to local humanitarian projects in Kenya and across Africa.
