Alaffia has committed to sourcing Certified Fair Trade ingredients. I use it for my face and neck and brows.
My only problem with it is that the consistency is constantly changing and in the end I opted to go with a more consistent product. More reviews by BlueRed. I'm on my third jar! I only use it on my lips so it lasts a looong time. I would prefer a tube to a jar for hygiene, but it's not like I suffer from constant illnesses, so I don't think sticking my finger in the jar without any real attention to washing my hands before I do has had any ill effects.
There are only a few things I buy more than once and this is one of them. One of the only products that makes my lips feel moisturized. More reviews by AngieGCarp. Thank you Dumroo Cat for your convincing review I purchased this and I love it!
I love having a multipurpose heavy duty cream for patting under my eyes, rubbing into my cuticles, smoothing my elbows and heels THIS fits the bill for sure. It smells a little earthy but it isn't off putting, you can just smell the beeswax. More reviews by DumrooCat. Run and buy this miracle cream before it becomes as popular and expensive as Egyptian Magic or La Mer!
This is probably Alaffia's signature product as a comparable product to Egyptian Magic. The 'miracle' ingredients are the same - bee propolis, pollen, royal jelly. Added are the wonderful, skin-saving ingredients like neem, baobab, sesame oil and African Wild Honey. What's not to love? It does have shea butter and I am not a fan of Shea butter but this cream has been working great for my skin. They firmly believe that the cooperation of people across the world is as essential part of building sustainability in all their communities.
What Does Empowerment Mean? As individuals who have the good fortune of education and experience, it is their moral duty to be conscious and aware of the situations of people who are less fortunate. By empowerment, they mean identifying what individuals and communities have at their disposal - resources, skills, knowledge, and traditions - and supporting or creating initiatives in which they can use these tools and resources within their means.
Empowerment through Fair Trade Women in West Africa have long been excluded from the formal education sector, which means many cannot read or write. This makes them less valuable as employees, and as such, they do not have many employment opportunities. One could "empower" these women by teaching them to read and write, and helping them to find employment.
However, with their women's cooperatives, they look at what these women have to offer that no one else does - their unique skills, traditions and knowledge. Then, they compensate them at fair value for these skills. As a result, they gain income and livelihoods to support their families, while maintaining traditions and managing a sustainable resource.
Community Empowerment Projects While individual women are empowered through their participation in their cooperatives, they also strongly believe in spreading the empowerment to the community level. Through the sales of their shea butter products, they raise funds for community projects in central Togo aimed at alleviating poverty and advancing gender equality.
These projects target problems that they have identified as holding back communities - such as exclusion from education, maternal deaths and environmental degradation. Again, the support for these projects comes from the fair trade of traditional, sustainable knowledge and resources. Bicycles for Education - Since , they have collected and sent over 3, used bicycles to disadvantaged students in Togo so they can get to and from school.
Maternal Health - Each year, Alaffia provides pre and post natal care to 70 women in central Togo to help reduce high maternal death rates in West Africa. Fair Trade Certification The Alaffia Shea Butter Cooperative creates economic opportunity for women who were denied access to education and whose skills and knowledge are undervalued in today's societies. The cooperative members receive fair wages and also are able to maintain and pass on their traditional knowledge of handcrafting shea butter.
In addition, cooperative members are fully involved in community project planning and implementation. As a result, they gain economic and social equality in their families and communities. American Community Involvement One of their primary goals is to provide an avenue for people in the United States to learn about other cultures and to inform them how they can work to better all their communities.
There are several ways in which they do this: Each and every product contains information on their community empowerment and gender equality efforts. They welcome volunteers for their bicycles for education donation drives and other projects. They also have volunteer opportunities at their facility in Lacey, WA. Trainings, Presentations and Tours: They welcome visits and tours of their facility in Lacey, WA.
Here, they also offer occasional soap making classes and trainings. In addition, they make several public presentations across the USA and Canada each year. About Alaffia Moral Beginnings - Moral Goals Every day they hear news about natural and man-made disasters, wars, environmental degradation - and it is easy to become pessimistic about humanity and the future.
Problems include, but are not limited to: Growing disparities between those who have and those who have not Increasing populations while resources continue to decline Gender inequality, child poverty, even child trafficking and slavery abound Degraded, abused environments that are losing resiliency and ability to recover Global climate change is disrupting formerly predictable rain patterns and water availability But at the same time, they live in an age of unparalleled communication and dialog between communities across the world.
The global connections give us advantages and opportunities as individuals to make changes for the better. Furthermore, information is readily available to most everyone in the world - and when informed, they can do anything. Alaffia's Moral Duty They firmly believe that it is their duty as educated, healthy, and determined individuals to take advantage of information and communication to work towards bettering the conditions of people and communities who are not so advantaged.
They also understand that truly eradicating poverty, gender inequality or environmental collapse requires cooperation and action by all levels of society - individuals, governments, organizations of every scope and scale. However, until this occurs, they have pledged their lives to what they can do - helping their communities in central Togo sustain themselves through the fair trade of their indigenous resource - shea butter. Alaffia's success is not simply measured by profit.
Our success is measured by empowerment. Alaffia empowers West African communities to become sustainable through the fair trade of indigenous resources. We encourage empowerment through our community projects, our women's cooperatives, and through education and involvement in our local customer communities.
We firmly believe that the cooperation of people across the world is an essential part of building sustainability in all communities. Would you like to tell us about a lower price?
