Klorane Body Lotion or Shower Gel ($16)

What They Are
A gentle, daily body-care collection powered by the benefits of organic cupuaçu butter, sustainably sourced from the Amazon rain forest in Brazil.

Key Ingredient
Precious cupuaçu fruit seeds are removed from the pulp, left to dry in the sun and then cold-pressed to create the rich cupuaçu butter.

Expert Insight
“Daily environmental stressors can disturb the hydrolipidic barrier on the skin. This triggers faster evaporation of water, which can cause skin to lose its softness, suppleness and strength. Cupuaçu butter contains rich fatty acids, which replenish the skin's lipidic barrier and prevent moisture loss for a full 24 hours.”
–Lana Rovner, Marketing Director

*Each tube contains one Body Lotion or Shower Gel. Scents vary per tube: Cupuaçu Flower, Fig Leaf, Yuzu Infusion or Hibiscus Flower.
