The product-description block displays the description of a product. This Component can be imported and used by any VTEX App.



  1. Import the app to your theme's dependencies in the manifest.json file as in the following example:
  "dependencies": {
    "": "2.x"
  1. Add the product-description block to any child of the store.product template (Product Details Page template). For example:
  "store.product": {
    "children": [
  "flex-layout.row#product": {
    "children": [
+     "product-description"
  1. Then, declare the product-description block using the props stated in the Props table.
