I’m very happy to have had a chance to review a few of the products from Alaffia’s beauty product line. All of the products from Alaffia are “Fair Trade” and “Organic.” They also donate some of the proceeds made from the handmade baskets on their website to African causes. Awesome stuff!

In this review, I reviewed the “Shea & Virgin Coconut Enriching Shampoo, Shea & Virgin Coconut Enriching Hair Lotion, Rooibos & Shea Antioxidant Facial Cleanser, Rooibos & Shea Butter Antioxidant Face Cream, Rooibos & Shea Antioxidant Facial Toner and Cocoa & Shea Butter Lip Balm.” The packaging of these products was unmistakably African in style (as you can see), what was inside was remarkable.  ..Read on to find out more!


Advancing Gender Equality and Alleviating Poverty through the Fair Trade of Handcrafted Shea Butter.

 

Shea & Virgin Coconut Enriching Shampoo

My Findings:
I love love anything that has coconut in it, especially my shampoo! This shampoo is naturally scented with Lavender Essential Oil & Coconut Fragrance, and it smells just wonderful. The shea butter and coconut coats my hair, and leaves it silky smooth. What a great combination!

 

Shea & Virgin Coconut Enriching Hair Lotion

My Findings: This is the accompanying conditioner to the shampoo (above) and I’m telling you my hair smelled wonderful after use, and the shine and softness of my hair was remarkable. Alaffia’s shampoo and conditioner works great on their own, but even better when used together. One plus one, equals “three” in this case!

 

Rooibos & Shea Antioxidant Facial Cleanser

My Findings: This is a great cleanser that helps fight skin-aging, and free radicals as it gently removes makeup, dirt, debris, and other impurities that may accumulating on your face during the day. I also liked that this cleanser went on nice and smooth. You can really feel it cleaning your pores, and it smells nice.

 

Rooibos & Shea Butter Antioxidant Face Cream

My Findings: I love Alaffia’s face cream I use this face cream every night and I love how its not a thick and heavy when applying to your sking, and that will leave your pores clogged all night. This face cream also smells wonderful, and it has the added coconut and shea butter in it to help keep your skin nice and moisturized.

 

Rooibos & Shea Antioxidant Facial Toner

My Findings: If you want a nice “pick me up” while refreshing your skin, then you’ll love this face toner. This face toner is formulated to naturally balance your skin’s pH and help maximize hydration. It’s alcohol-free,  so don’t worry, it won’t dry your skin out like some other face toners can.

 

Cocoa & Shea Butter Lip Balm

My Findings: YUM… every time I apply this lip balm to my lips, I feel like I’m eating something that has coco in it, and I’m also adding moisturizer to my lips with coconut oil and shea butter. Love it!

 

About Alaffia:

Alaffia was founded in 2003 by Olowo-n’djo Tchala as a means to alleviate poverty and advance gender equality in his native country of Togo, West Africa. The Alaffia organization is a complete fair trade cycle. The women of the Alaffia Shea Butter Cooperative in Sokodé, Togo handcraft raw ingredients using traditional, sustainable methods. These ingredients are then combined into finished skin and hair care products at Alaffia’s Lacey, Washington location. At least 10% of sales from the finished products – Alaffia Sustainable Skin Care, EveryDay Shea and Beautiful Curls – are returned to West Africa to fund community empowerment projects aimed at alleviating poverty, enhancing education, improving gender equality, and reducing the effects of climate change. This relationship between the Cooperative and Lacey, Washington locations makes Alaffia a true fair trade organization, building sustainable communities through the production and sale of affordable, clean and effective products.

How are Products Chosen for Alaffia?

All of the oils and butters for our skin care products that we make in Togo are extracted with traditional methods. We also take the care to only use non-plantation grown coconuts, palm fruit and cacao beans. Plantations have multiple environmental, social and economic consequences, while the small farms we support have been sustainable for centuries.
