As a social enterprise, Alaffia's mission is to give back.Their products are made by women's cooperatives in West Africa that handcraft indigenous ingredients, such as unrefined "raw" shea butter and African black soap. Those products are then handcrafted using traditional African recipes and methods at the U.S. headquarters at a facility in Olympia, WA. Proceeds from the sale of these products are returned to communities to fund community empowerment and gender equality projects. Empowerment Projects are Alaffia’s mission in action, funded by the sales of Alafﬁa products. Alaffia invests in Togolese communities because they believe it is their moral responsibility and to ensure African resources empower African communities. The goal is to alleviate poverty and encourage gender equality. Alaffia products don’t contain sulfates or parabens. Our products are also free of phthalates, mineral oil, petrolatum, silicones, artificial fragrance or synthetic coloring.
