Africa's Secret Multipurpose Skin Cream by Alaffia is a great, all around moisturizer, thanks to the powerful healing properties of its ingredients. It's also ideal for really dry skin, environmental protection, as a night cream and for treating scars & skin discolorations. This precious cream is a blend of pure, whole ingredients including handcrafted shea butter, African wild honey, royal jelly, bee pollen and other natural ingredients that give your skin the best moisturizing and protective benefits without added emulsifiers, preservatives or artificial scents of any kind.

Shea butter has been a staple of skin care in Africa for millennia. With our Certified Fair Trade Alaffia unrefined shea butter, you will be able to enjoy the highly beneficial replenishing properties that this raw ingredient has to offer. Receive the full moisturizing and protective benefits of its unique fatty acid profile and Vitamins A and E.

 

Authentic, Sustainable, Handcrafted
Shea Butter is the oil from the nuts of wild Shea trees (Vitellaria paradoxa - also known as Butyrospermum parkii in the cosmetic industry) scattered throughout the wooded savanna of West and Central Africa. Shea Butter has been used for centuries in Africa and is completely enmeshed within the history and culture of the West African savanna.

All Alaffia shea butter is handcrafted and unrefined. It does not go through any industrial extraction that involves the use of chemicals and high heat, which remove most of shea butter's beneficial properties. Unrefined natural shea butter has a slight nutty scent and ivory color as compared to the odorless and white refined shea butter.

You should know that most shea butter on the market in the United States is not fairly traded. Without fair trade, the women who gather shea nuts and hand craft this remarkable oil receive only a tiny fraction of the final price. Our Alaffia Shea Butter is not only the best you can buy, but it’s 100% fair trade certified by IMO.

Love this skin cream!
I'm about half way through my first jar of Africas Secret and can truly say I love it! I first started using it on my hands, then my feet, knees and elbows which were the most dry skin areas. Now I use it all over body, neck and on dry areas of my face. I find that if I put it on right after a hot shower or bath it goes on easiest. When the jar is cold, it helps to warm it a bit for easier application (probably because it has natural unrefined shea butter), but after a few minutes on the skin, it melts right in. Overall, this is a fantastic product for me and has basically solved my dry skin problems. I originally tried this skin cream because Alaffia supports a good cause. I will buy it again because it really works so well for me!
