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 just cannot find it within myself to like anything about Angelina Jolie. Beautiful? Yeah, ok. But, she is a class-A homewrecker from the word go. She marched off with Billy Bob Thornton, took PDA to a new level and then hooked her lusty claws into Brad Pitt. Sorry. I have ZERO respect for her as a person and I’m not too impressed with her acting. I don’t care how many good causes she takes up to divert attention from her total lack of moral character, she’s still low class in my opinion.

angelina jolie is a beautiful woman and very talented and I admire much by its great heart, also it meant to them to all fans that we say to him that pardons to his its father and who not aga but the one of the hard heart. To others the angie girl is very similar to the grandfathers

Why not help out the United States and all of the orphaned, crack addicted children we have here? Stars are so quick to become involved with charities (which they should- as they make a ton of money for what they do), but they should concentrate more on where they are from, not where they dream of living.

Those labels are so pretty, and they have a really nice design!!!! They really tie in with the product nicely!!!

I wanted Angelina to have the products. Regardless of her personal family issues, I totally admire her sincerity to help people. I respect a person in her position of wealth and fame to go out of her way to go to depressing places with dieing, suffering children and taking the out of her fairy tale life to help. I feel that she is a true, warm and compassionate person. I think that all of you who criticized Ms. Jolie need to take a real, long and hard look in the mirror and ask, “What have I done for anybody? What do I do on a daily basis to help alleviate the suffering of others?” Ms. Jolie could live in her castle complete with servants and pool parties, but instead she chooses to go places and do things that your average American would never want to take the time out to do. She has fed children as she watched them slip away. She has help set up schools so that girls could at minimum be touched by the written word. It is for these reasons, that I wanted her name, and probably no one elses, associated with my products.

Not only do our products provide a means of income for many in Africa, but they also provide jobs for Americans. We produce our products right here in the USA. It is called global exchange. We are all on this planet together. The earth was not created with boundaries and checkpoints. Our ancestors have migrated for thousands of years. What difference does it make if a person is born in Africa or in America? We are all people. We all deserve chances. And if our parents were given the chance, or if our society was given a chance, and so therefore we inherit a chance, isn’t it our duty to offer those same chances to those who were not born with the same opportunities? Remember, we all came into this world naked and helpless. Tammie Umbel Founder of Shea Terra Organics

I have the utmost respect for both Brad and Angelina. Their dedication to helping refugees, orphans and those affected by Hurricane Katrina and the earthquake in Pakistan, has inspired their fans to get involved both locally and globally. If one takes the time to visit their respective fans forums and those forums dedicated to them as a family, one will see threads devoted to their humanitarian efforts. These threads have links to organizations such as but not limited to UNHCR, the Genocide Prevention Network, SaveDarfur.org, Yele Haiti and Global Green. Fans encourage one another to write to their respective Congressmen, Presidents, and/or other political leaders on behalf of these causes. Fans pool together whatever monies they have for donations. It is amazing to witness how two actors can inspire people of all ages, nationalities, religions, genders and political alliances to be better people by becoming actively involved in helping others. I say, not too shabby for a couple of pretty actors.

P.S.
I love shea butter and I like the idea behind this product, so I will make a purchase.

CLAP YOU HANDS FOR JOLIE BACAUSE SHE IS THE ONLY PERSON IN THE WORLD THAT ADOPTS CHILDREN AND GIVES TO CHARITIES!!!!

ANDREA on

I LOVE ANGIE AND HER BIG HEART!! I THINK THAT A LOT OF CELEBRITIES SHOULD FOLLOW IN HER FOOTSTEP! THEY WOULDN’T BE FAMOUS IF IT WEREN’T FOR THESE SAME PEOPLE WHO SUPPORTED THEIR MOVIES AND THEIR MUSIC!!! SO TO GIVE TO CHARITIES IS LIKE SHOWING THEIR APPRECIATION!! BRAD MUST BE A PROUD MAN TO HAVE A WOMAN LIKE ANGELINA BY HIS SIDE!!! I REALLY DON’T THINK THAT JENNIFER ANISTON WOULD DO THE SAME AS JOLIE. AND SHE COULDN’T KEEP BRAD, EITHER. THATS WHY BRAD HAD TO LEAVE!!! I NEVER DID LIKED HER ANYWAY!! SHE COMES ACROSS AS SOMEONE WHO THINKS ONLY OF HERSELF!! I CAN’T IMAGINE HER ADOPTING A BLACK BABY!

Pascale on
