Ethical and handcrafted, Allafia’s Everyday Bodywash nourishes and protects the skin while cleansing away pollutants.
Feel refreshed and clean after a long day with Alaffia’s Purely Coconut Body Wash. It’s handcrafted with only real, quality ingredients for everyday use on normal to very dry skin. These ingredients include fair trade virgin coconut oil and antioxidant-rich coffee berry extract, which complement fair trade and certified organic "raw" shea butter from Alaffia cooperatives in West Africa. The result of this combination is a gentle, hydrating wash that cleanses away pollutants and protects the skin. Plus - it supports a social enterprise!
Cruelty-free with no sulfates, parabens, phthalates, mineral oil, artificial colours or synthetic fragrance and dyes.
Understand the processes used to create this body wash:
Coconut oil and shea butter are mixed together and heated. A natural saponifier made from ashes of plantain leaves and tree barks is added, then the mixture is cooked over heat, stirring constantly for 30-60 minutes until the hot saponification process is completed. The hot soap is scooped into a large metal bowl, where the soap expands up into a palm-frond basket and cools. Cooled soap is placed onto palm frond mats to dry in the sun.
Alaffia is a social enterprise on a mission to create a more sustainable and equitable future. Their women-led cooperatives in West Africa produce nutrient-rich African ingredients rooted in tradition.
When you choose an Alaffia handcrafted skin or hair care product, you too become part of the movement empowering women and families in Togo, West Africa. Together, we can continue to cultivate beauty and equality through a number of projects, including school construction and maternal care.
Apply body wash to a loofah, scrub or washcloth and work into a lather. Rinse thoroughly. May also be used as a hand wash. For external use only.
