Alaffia’s Everyday Shea Moisturizing Body Lotion


One of the biggest pet peeves I know of, when it comes to lotion, is that greasy feeling it leaves. Everyday Shea Moisturizing  Body Lotion does no such thing. It moisturizes beautifully while leaving your skin grease-free.  It goes on smooth and absorbs almost like water. This lotion begins with fair trade and unrefined shea butter. They then add lemongrass and essential oils to create a light and wonderful everyday lotion. Unscented, lavender, and vanilla are the three varieties available. My personal favorite is the lavender. It leaves just the right hint of lavender scent that follows you throughout the day. This lotion is also paraben free, with no synthetic fragrances, and they don’t test on animals. In addition to how fantastic the lotion is, this company also does their part by giving back some of their proceeds to West Africa. Some of the community projects they have helped fund include: Bicycles for Educations, maternal health care, school donations, and Alaffia cooperatives that provide steady and fair incomes to women in Togo, West Africa. Using this lotion will leave you with wonderfully moisturized skin and the knowledge that the company you support is doing their part. Visit their website to learn more about their shea butter and the work they do in West Africa.
