Treats-a-Plenty Tuesdays: L'Occitane Moments in Africa Soaps

It's not everyday that an inexpensive beauty gift can make a difference in our world....I mean really transform someone's life.

This year L'Occitane is offering the“Moments of Africa Soap Set” — three bars of soap perfumed with essential oils of lemongrass, eucalyptus, and orange. Each is colored with a pigment of natural origin, and is made using a high concentration of shea butter (72%), which is renowned for its softening and protective properties. This type of soap is perfect for those of us with sensitive skin and/or dry skin who need gentle, moisturizing ingredients in our soaps.

I love that this set depicts the moments of African life and are produced entirely in Burkina Faso, Africa by co-operatives of entrepreneurial women. More important, 100% of the proceeds earned from this set are donated to ORBIS, a non-profit organization dedicated to fighting preventable blindness around the world.

Pick up a set or two and give them as hostess or co-worker gifts. I know I'd love to receive one!

Purchase info: L'Occitane Moments in Africa Soaps are available at L'Occitane stores, as well as on the company's Web site. The set retails for $8.00.
