Advancing Gender Equality and Alleviating Poverty through Fair Trade Shea Butter
Coffee & Shea Café au Lait Body Lotion-Orange Vanilla by Alaffia is an AMAZING moisturizing body lotion with Certiﬁed Fair Trade unreﬁned shea butter, contains aloe and lemongrass to soothe and protect. It is perfect for all skin types (even my very DRY skin) and is naturally scented with orange and vanilla. It’s a delicate scent that is also invigorating and great for naturally protecting and firming skin. The body lotion has unrefined shea butter for moisturizing and skin firming properties from Yirgacheffe coffee. The Baobab extracts add additional skin firming properties, while aloe and lemongrass soothe and protect. It’s my new favorite lotion and it is a very reasonable price for such great quality.
Alaffia not only bring customers the best natural, fair trade skin and hair care, but also helps relieve the cycle of poverty in Togo. Alaffia empowers West African communities to become sustainable through the fair trade of indigenous resources.
