Info from Whole Foods MarketAlaffia 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 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.
