watch Your Alaffia Purchase Helps Alleviate Poverty in Togo, West Africa

Spa use can cause dry skin, and nothing restores it better than shea. Shea butter has been a staple for skin care in the harsh climates of 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.


Sustainable Skin Care
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.

My review of Alaffia unscented shea butter
I'm a guy that works with his hands and they are in water a lot, which means my hands were always chapped/cracked/dry and raw. I've tried just about every hand lotion on the market with mixed results at best. The problem is that most of them wash right off in a few minutes, and the chapped skin on my hands would never heal. (I'm also not a big fan of products with perfume in them). A co-worker turned me on to Alaffia, and I've been using their unscented shea butter for about a month now. It was the product I was looking for. It not only does not wash right off, it actually healed my chapped hands after a few days. So glad I found it! I'm a customer for life now!
