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

Hi all.
Our firm designed the web site, bottles, jars, tubes for these products, and i would love your feed back! We hope they grab your attention and compel you to try the product…which as a user of Shea Terra myself, I can assure you unparalleled. My wife constantly asks for me to request more samples. We will have a new cart and a fully functional web site up very soon please check back at for updates, under Portfolio>Current Projects> Shea Terra

Hey. Silly as it may seem, the graphics on the packages and bottles are terrific. Very hip, well balanced and inviting. Make you want to buy. Anyone know who created the graphics?

I respect Angelina for her charitable work and what appears to me to be a no nonsense attitude towards Hollywood. I also still marvel at her beauty now and then.

I haven’t tried these two particular products from Shea Terra but have used a number of their other products and everything they make is fantastic, especially the Mint Vanilla stuff. And, the company donates a lot to different charites, which makes me feel better about spending my hard earned money there!

I also applaud Angelina and Brad for donating all the money from photos of their baby to charity, in addition to what I understand are many other donations to charities including Katrina. It’s nice to see celebs putting their money where their mouths are.

50 cents is not a whole alot off of $9,& $12 a bottle!
you think they could at least give at least $1?
I guess it’s better than nothing…

I´m from a 3rd world country…. Argentina, and i do help my people in need, as well from people abroad… I believe the world is a mess…. and we all, humans, need to help each other… I get really emotional when I see people suffer in any part of the world, Argentina, Africa, the tsunami victims…. Katrina Victims…. the whole world is in need…. and listening about people feeling SAD because celebrities choose to HELP other countries in need and no their own is just to much for me…. need to grow up… the world dont have boundries when we talk abput helping each other
Even though thats not the case for the Jollie-Pitt family since they clearly do help in the US´. Dont you think that taking in children and giving them a loving home isn´t a loving commitment? I wish that all of us that could do that would find such strength to do such a big sacrifice and raise children for love,,, since they dont do it because they cannot concieve….
Anyway… I get carried away , and the point is…. dont judge badly good people that help… it has no sense at all!

Kristin sounds like she has a bone to pic with Angelina..Kristin are you related to Jennifer Aniston or maybe you are her…Koodos to Brad and Angelina to all that they have done for people all over the world..They are setting examples to celebrities all over hollywood to do the same..They are Perfect together, God knows why he place the two together..They are king and queen in my eyes..people just need to get the f%#k over it..As Americans We need to check on the people that we put in power like your president (Bush) ask what he’s doing for the poor in the United States..And Angelina gives millions to the poor in the united states also..Do your research “Kristin” and get over it..And i Love this product i use it myself i swear by it..Your comment sounds very personal..Didn’t u say you was educated?..well i think the question was about the product not the person! or did u just not understand the question?

Nubian is a great product line!

This is completely ridiculous!!! “Grown ups” fighting over which country Angelina should help, really, it´s sad. I´m 13 years old and I seem to be more mature than you!! First of all, which country or foundation a celebrity/star wants to help it´s completely none of your business!! It´s their money, they worked to gain it, not you!! Second, this page is for us to leave our opinnions, to say whatever we want to say! Not to have people practically insulting each other. Oh, right, my opinion, I don´t think the United States it´s in more help than Africa and if Angelina and tons of other celebrities/star want to held africa, good for them!!

Jessa on

The important question is, if I use this product, will I look like her when I wake up tomorrow?

Heather on

Kristin & the rest of you narrow minded people who agree with her- we are all ONE…..there are no boundaries when it comes to helping our fellow human beings. Do people deserve to suffer because of geography??? Because we are lucky enough to live in the US, that entitles us to block out the rest of the planet? I don’t think so….. I think it’s a shame that you are holding yourself up as a charitable citizen by pointing out that you volunteer for Habitat for Humanity. They go well beyond our US borders in the name of humanity, so if you only support organizations who benefit the US, then you’re working with the wrong group.
