Alaffia GOOD Soap s 1
Alaffia GOOD Soap is sold exclusively at Whole Foods Market!

The Alaffia GOOD soap is made with certified fair trade shea butter and coconut oil, and comes in 6 scrumptious scents: African Black Soap, Coconut, Fresh Mint, Lavender  Sunshine, Sweet Vanilla and Prairie Rose! 

 alaffia she butter being madeShea Butter is mentioned in almost all African historical documents, including a reference as early as Cleopatra's Egypt, which mentions caravans bearing clay jars of Shea Butter for cosmetic use. It has also been used for centuries in Africa as a decongestant, an anti-inflammatory for sprains and arthritis, healing salve, lotion for hair and skin care, and cooking oil.

However, the protective and emollient properties of Shea Butter are most valued for skin care. Handcrafted, unrefined Shea Butter, such as Alaffia uses, contains the maximum amount of healing and moisturizing properties.In recent clinical trials, Shea Butter was found to help to protect skin against climate and UV aggressions, prevent wrinkle formation, soothe irritated and chapped skin, and moisturize the epidermis.

Most shea butter available to the general public outside West Africa is white and odorless: in other words, it has been "refined" to remove the natural scent and color of natural shea butter. In the process, the majority of the effective agents are also removed. For example, the yellow tint of unrefined shea butter is due to the Vitamin A content. Remove this color, and the beneficial vitamins have also been removed. Antioxidants or preservatives such as BHA (butylated hydroxyanisole) or BHT (butylated hydroxytoluene) may be added as well. The end result is an odorless, white butter that may be aesthetically appealing, but lacks the true moisturizing, healing, and nutritive properties of true traditional Shea Butter. But not so with Alaffia GOOD Soap- you get ALL the wonderful benefits above of Shea Butter!
