Angelina Jolie's Favorite Body Lotion

10/23/2006 at 06:00 AM ET

Angelina Jolie doesn’t just help the needy in Africa when she visits (or adopts) — she is even in a charitable state of mind in the shower! The star just requested Shea Terra Nubian Honey Shower Creme, $9, and Shea Butter Body Lotion, $12, which contain Africa-harvested ingredients. Fifty cents from each bottle sold will go to the (greatest named charity ever) Nubian Goat Project, which purchases goats for needy families in Ethiopia. So, not only is Angelina’s heart softened, so is her skin! — Clarissa Cruz

I too love Angelina Jolie. She is ELEGANCE personified!

The way she cares for her children (and no doubt Brad) you can tell that she shows nothing but RESPECT for all the African people, not just the children. In fact, most probably all people who have crossed her path love her.

She has this Princess Diana quality about her. It oozes from her. She has a great big heart for what she does for charitable causes.
Now, when she even showers…money is going to the less fortunate people.

Aewsome, just AWESOME. What a great gal.

Brad Pitt is one lucky, lucky man to have her.

Sad, so many celebrities help other countries but not our own. Truly sad.

I agree completely with Kristen. Also, People often runs items on what products celebrities use, but honestly, I find it very hard to believe that they really do.

In this age of self absorbed celebrity, it is so refreshing to see Angie so committed to these causes. Her dedication for the last six years is inspiring. Her children are so lucky. I wish her and Brad well.

Sad that American’s have such a narrow minded view of charity. Sad that to American’s charity starts and ends on their door step and not outside of it. Sad that people will be bitter about millions getting help they need to survive. Sad that someone would waste their time on a blog being bitter than doing something themselves to help their mother country. Yes it is sad.

Love the lotion, thanks.

I totally agree with you Kristin!

Celebrities, just like like us ordinary people, help both in the U.S. and internationally. Each person may not do both, but I bet most do. I read about celebrities — actors/musicians/athletes etc. — donating to U.S. charities ALL THE TIME. A lot of them have even started their own foundations, e.g. George Lucas’ education foundation, Tiger Woods, etc.

The Jolie-Pitt family and their Foundation contribute to the recovery of New Orleans and Katrina victims not only with building low cost, sustainable ‘green’ housing, but filming there as well. Angelina Jolie has also supported the New Orleans campaign of locals such as Wynton Marsalis, Harry Connick and the Neville Brothers to bring back tourism to help the city recover economically.

Let’s face it, there are people in need everywhere around the world. Few individuals (or even entire countries like the U.S., the richest country in the world) have the resources, emotionally as well as financially, to take care of each and every person in need.

People do the best they can, according to what moves them most and is closest to their heart.

Isn’t that what each of us individually does when contributing to a worthy cause? We’re moved by everything but what we can give is not enough – so we choose to give to a particular church, school, youth or senior program, food bank, shelters for the homeless or abused women & children, disease, drug prevention & rehab, etc.

And isn’t it better to applaud someone for doing something good instead of doing nothing (or because you don’t agree with their choice, or maybe you just can’t stand that person)?

It’s easier to knock people down — much easier than turning that same judgmental spotlight on ourselves and asking “what am *I* doing to help?”
