Co-op Basics

Everyone needs a little pampering, and one of the easiest ways to indulge in a little self-care is through quality body products.  At the Co-op, products from Alaffia are all on Co-op Basics, priced affordably, every day.  Alaffia products are cruelty-free, cooperatively owned, and fairly traded.  Alaffia is one of the most environmentally and socially responsible body care companies we have found.  Here’s a little about them:

Alaffia is a social enterprise on a mission to invest in a more equitable future. Together, we’re cultivating beauty, equality, and empowerment in West Africa and around the globe. Alaffia is built on a philosophy of fair trade defined by paying a fair local price or wage, offering equal employment opportunities, engaging in environmentally sustainable practices, providing healthy and safe working conditions, being open to public accountability, and reducing the number of middlemen from supplier to consumer.

If you haven’t already tried their rich, shea-butter based lotions, shampoo and soap, you are in for a treat.  Ask anyone in our Wellness Department to help you find your way to body care bliss with a conscience!
