This year has proven to be full of excitement for actress and entrepreneur Taraji P. Henson, who has now added an affordable body care line to her latest ventures.

As covered in an exclusive with InStyle, Henson is aiming to turn your entire shower routine into a moment of self-care with Body by TPH, a collection of nourishing body care products with luxurious scents and textures that can be used solo or layered like you would in your facial skincare routine.


“People are a little traumatized from the pandemic and they’re not socializing as much or going to spas as much because there’s still the fear of COVID,” Henson tells InStyle. “During shutdown, I was teaching people how to do their hair at home and now it’s like, let’s turn that Sunday chore into a ritual. While you have your hair mask on, you can indulge in a nice deep, relaxing bath with a relaxing candle. Or you can get your energy the next morning from the mandarine and ginger in the body cleansing line.”

Henson is referring to the three collections within the Body by TPH line: The Cleanse + Condition Coalition, The Skin Stylers, and Restoration Situals.

The Cleanse¬†+ Condition Coalition is a set of products designed to energize the body and mind in the morning. This includes the Good Daze Energizing Gel Body Cleanser ($9), The Ish Condish Nourishing In-Shower Conditioner ($9), The Leave-On Hydrating Daily Body Lotion ($9), and the It’s Lit In The AM candle ($12). The candle features notes of ginger extract, mandarin, magnolia, jasmine, bourbon, coconut wood, sandalwood, and musk, and serves as the scent for this collection.

The Skin Stylers collection features the Anything Glows Body Oil ($12), Watch Me Whip Hard Working Whipped Body Cream ($12), Softer Than a Mutha Decadent Skin Silkening Body Butter ($12), Baby Buff’d Body Scrub ($12), get their scents from the Anyplace, Anytime Candle ($12), which has notes of almond milk, Brazilian orange oil, lemon oil, Spanish citrus oil, blonde wood, light jasmine, tuberose, vanilla, heliotrope, and marshmallow musk. These products are essentials for any time of day.

And then there’s the Restoration Rituals to help you wind down at night. This lineup includes The Wind Down Relaxing Creamy Body Cleanser ($9), Bubble Or Nothin Comforting Bath Elixir ($9), Double Z’s Dual Action Bath Soak & Body Scrub ($12), and the It’s Lit In The PM Stress Relieving Evening Candle ($12), the scent of this collection. It comes with notes of lemon oil, fresh turmeric, rosewater, geranium oil, ylang-ylang, palo santo, coconut cream, and patchouli.

In 2020, the award-winning actress launched her haircare brand, TPH by Taraji, to provide efficacious, affordable products that emphasize the importance of scalp care, especially for those who wear protective styles like braids, wigs, and weaves.
