Alaffia – Equality, Empowerment, & Beauty

Alaffia 1

I recently teamed up with a company called Alaffia to bring you this blog post.  I could go into great detail on the amazing things  Alaffia is doing in Africa regarding fair trade wages and high quality products, but this video powerfully conveys it all.


Not only are they providing amazing & healthy body products at a reasonable price, but they are also creating a sustainable business model that is TRANSFORMING lives in Togo, Africa.


Let’s Dig into the products:

Cocoa & Shea Butter Lip Balm: This little stick packs a punch. Its ÜBER moisturizing and keeps my lips quite happy.  I really like the combination of cocoa and shea butter – they are pretty much the perfect ingredient couple.  Cheers to them staying married FOREVER. 🙂

Authentic African Black Soap: This is the KING of soaps.  All-in-one, body wash, shampoo, shaving soap & more.  It is soft and gentle, yet gets you really clean.  My skin feels refreshed after using it, rather than tight and dry like so many traditional soaps do.  I absolutely love it and highly recommend it to on-the-go people and frequent travelers who can use it as a one. stop. shop.

Africa’s Secret Multi Purpose Skin Cream: This cream is crazy moisturizing, and absorbs really fast.  I was actually quite flabbergasted at how quickly my skin drank it in because usually body products with a thick consistency are pretty greasy and take a loooooong time to absorb.  You can use it anywhere on your body, but it is especially great for those dry, cracked winter hands we all get in cold weather.

Everyday Coconut Body Lotion: This lotion is also a really fast absorber, and as a gal who is constantly moving, I LOVE that about this product.  I don’t have to wait after applying to change clothes or touch my phone, etc.  It is deeply moisturizing and has a really soft scent – which I also like a lot – nothing overpowering or strong, just gentle, moisturizing, and healthy for my skin.

Everyday Shea Bubble Bath: Who doesn’t love a good bubble bath?  When trying this product, I grabbed a great book and soaked in soapy, bubbly water until my feet turned prune-y.  Needless to say, it was a relaxing experience and one that I can repeat whenever I want whilst this lovely bubble bath is my possession.






I am incredibly honored and humbled to have partnered with such an outstanding company to bring you these reviews.  I hope you love the products as much as I do!

I wish you LIGHT, LOVE, & PEACE,

Jaclyn Steele
