L’Occitane Moments of Africa Soap Set

occitane.jpgI did a double-take when I was at L’Occitane’s holiday preview a few months ago — a set of three soaps for $8? From L’Occitane? Whaaaat!? Moments of Africa Soap Set is indeed only $8, comes in a ready-to-gift box, and 100% of the proceeds go to charities fighting blindness. The soaps in the set depict moments of African life and they were produced entirely in Burkina Fasco by co-operatives of entrepreneurial women to promote cooperate efforts. They smell light and fresh — they’re perfumed with essentials oils of orange, eucalyptus and lemongrass and they’ve been colored with pigments of natural origin. Stocking stuffer, anyone?
