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

Hot tubbing can sometimes cause dry skin. Restore it with this amazingly silky and effective lotion! Virgin coconut oil and certified fair trade, handcrafted shea butter absorbs easily, leaving skin feeling soft and supple. Soothing lemongrass extract and essential oil enhances a refreshing coconut scent. Great for all skin types.

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.

Love It!!!!!
I started using this body lotion on my hands a couple months ago. Since I started using this product my cuticles look and fell so much better. It does not feel oily or greasy. I am very sensitive to smells and it does not bother me. Highly Recommend!
