Alaffia Good Soaps

Info from Whole Foods Market

Alaffia Good Soap (SRP*: $2.59) This moisturizing, luxurious and affordable soap is made with certified fair trade shea butter and coconut oil. Exclusive to Whole Foods Market, Good Soap comes in Lavender, Fresh Mint, Sunshine, Prairie Rose, Sweet Vanilla, Coconut and African Black Soap scents.


Whole Foods Market actually has an online mag called “Dark Rye” that had a nice video profile on Alaffia if you’re interested in learning more about this company.

Personally, I can NEVER have enough great-smelling soaps with natural ingredients! These “Good” soaps from Alaffia are actually pretty great! The soaps are soft on the skin and I love that the scents are mild but noticeable enough to enjoy while using them. I enjoyed these soaps so much that after I finished the ones that were sent for review, I went back to Whole Foods and purchased three more! As a plus, it’s great to support a company that uses fair trade ingredients, which helps producers in developing counties garner fair wages and in turn helps to build up communities that need the support.

Alaffia Coconut Lip Balms

Info from Whole Foods Market

Alaffia Everyday Coconut Lip Balm (SPR: $2.99) Deeply moisturizing for dry or sun-kissed lips, this moisturizing lip balm is made with Fair Trade Coconut oil and cocoa butter. It comes in three flavors: Purely Coconut, Coconut Pineapple and Coconut Mint. Everyday coconut is an extension of Alaffia, a brand founded by Olowo-n’djo Tchala. A Togolese native, Tchala created Everday Coconut to generate funds for community enhancement projects in West African nations to reduce poverty and gener inequality. This product is sold at Whole Foods Market stores nationwide. 

These lip balms are truly moisturizing and have a smooth glide-on feel. The ingredients are simple yet effective and each lip balm in the line is non-GMO, vegan and contains NO synthetic flavors! The Coconut Mint lip balm has already become one of my faves this summer because of the refreshing hint of mint when you put it on.

These are truly quality products from Alaffia, and I encourage you to visit their site if you’re interested in learning more about their products and mission! If you’re interested in purchasing, don’t forget you can check out your local Whole Foods Market.

    I love lip balms, especially since I’m not much of a makeup fan I always look for a really good lip balm. This sounds like a good one ;)

    Hey, can you tell me the ingredients for the rose scented Good Soap? I looked into Alaffias website & only found the Shea butter & geranium rose soap. Are they the same? I got the Good Soap bar thinking it was the same as the Shea butter & Rose Geranium soap.

    Hi! I unfortunately don’t have the ingredients for that particular bar, but I’m sure if you contacted a representative through their site, they could provide that information for you.

    Not sure but what city are you based out of? I’m really hoping I can find this in my local Whole Foods in Toronto.

    I bought so many Bars of the Good Soap! My favorite scents are the Coconut and Sunshine. They smell wonderful and leave my skin feeling soft. I keep going to buy it so they won’t stop selling it!

    Found Good soap while shopping at Fresno Ca. Wholefoods. I’m always looking for nice smelling but affordable soap for my sensitive skin. This brand smells and feels good on the skin. I purchase d several types but love Sunshine best. Am going to buy several bars for Christmas gifts this year.

    I bought this soap this weekend at Wholefoods on sale for $1. I have never experienced soap like this in all my life. It is soooo awesome, I can’t find words to describe it! I’ve been using shower gel from lack of ever finding a soap that is natural and health conscious with great scent, smoothness, lather and reasonably price. It feels like scented creme massaging your skin with no dryness whatsoever. I’m telling you, I’m not the review posting type but I just had to. Great, great, great product with a fantastic cause behind it.
