Alaffia believes its best resources are its people and their knowledge of using shea nuts to create natural beauty products. Women in Togo have been using the same methods to make shea butter for hundreds of years.
Alaffia has helped thousands of mothers deliver healthy new babies. As those babies grow older, Alaffia supplies bikes to ensure girls can get to school and has even built many schools and provides school supplies.
Alaffia’s founder was greatly inspired by his mother. He pays tribute to her through their strong maternity program helping women give birth to healthy babies. Alaffia also employs many women who create shea butter for their bath products.
