Malibu Secret Body Treatment

I've been intrigued about this product since first learning about it several months ago. I'd love to know if any of you have tried this and what you think. Here's what I know at this point about Malibu Secret Body Treatment:

Interestingly, the product was created by Katie Anderson, a self-professed flower child of the '60's. Cool! As such, she loved natural foods, vitamins, exercise, and of course sunshine and flowers. A 1967 meeting with neighborhood friend, Davis Factor, of the Max Factor make-up family, sparked Katie’s interest in creating her own natural body creams with a bend on capturing the sunny and flowery essence of Southern California.

Using such items as avocado, sunflower oil, various herbs, and floral colognes, she formulated what would be one of several homemade all natural body creams, that to her surprise, drew quite the following. Then the unexpected hit home, the arrival of sons Erik and David.
Cut to thirty years later… Katie and Erik have decided to reintroduce the most popular of Katie’s all natural body creams. But in an industry notorious for the breathless hyping of quite ordinary products, they knew the only thing that speaks volumes is results, thus the addition of several scientifically advanced anti-aging ingredients to the already plethora of natural.

Here's the claim:

An innovative body cream designed to repair and replenish using a potent combination of botanicals, anti-oxidants, various butters, and a multitude of vitamins. It's paraben-free and boasts no animal testing.
