For years, Alaffia has led the way in ethically sourced and produced personal care products. Now the company is taking the next step in its commitment to sustainability by pioneering the MADE SAFE™ (Made with Safe Ingredients) seal for many of its products.
In fact, Alaffia’s shampoos, soaps, and baby wash are the first products in the world in those categories to be certified MADE SAFE!
Alaffia products are formulated with raw ingredients handcrafted using traditional methods in Togo, West Africa, including shea butter and coconut oil. Fair trade is the foundation of the organization, which is comprised of several cooperatives throughout Togo and a facility in Olympia, WA. All cooperative members are paid fair wages and proceeds from the sales of Alaffia products are returned to Togolese communities to fund empowerment and gender equality projects.
We’ve had the privilege of meeting the founders of Alaffia and some of their team from both Olympia and Togo, and we couldn’t be more impressed with their values and integrity. We admire Alaffia’s empowerment mission, and are honored to add a new facet to their mission by empowering people to make healthy choices for their families.
