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

This enriching formula of handcrafted shea butter and virgin coconut oil hydrates hair and scalp to improve softness and elasticity of your hair. Formulated with rooibos tea to encourage new hair growth. Especially suited to manage curly hair.

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.


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.

Just what I was looking for
I had been looking for a moisturizing product for my natural curly hair. I was using 3-4 products together to get the look, but it would last only until the next day. I am very pleased with my hair. It is less tangled. I mix the product with the shea butter & rosemary shining curl oil. My curls are bouncey and shining not heavy. Yeah!

This product is AMAZING!! I have tried every anti frizz product out there on the market, nothing worked. I used the Alaffia Hair Lotion and fell in love with it!! Not only does it define my curls without weighing them down but, it manages the frizz all day. This is a MUST HAVE for those with curly/frizzy hair. You will not be disappointed.
