These delightful L'Occitane Moments in Africa Soaps will make you feel as good buying them as they do the lucky recipient who gets to use them. The shea butter-laden soaps are made in Burkina Faso, a smaller country in Western Africa, by co-operatives of entrepreneurial women. If that's not enough, 100 percent of the proceeds are donated to ORBIS, a non-profit organization dedicated to fighting preventable blindness around the world. The $8 gift set contains three scents of soaps, including lemongrass, eucalyptus and orange, each colored with pigment of natural origin.
