Body Care, Charity - November 1st, 2009
After seeing it pop up first at Whole Foods Market, and then at my favorite New Seasons Market, I finally broke down and bought a bottle of Everyday Shea Moisturizng Body Lotion in the vanilla scent. How fabulous is this stuff? Pretty darned awesome.
Everyday Shea is a sister company to Alaffia Sustainable Skincare, a company that makes products I really enjoy. I especially love Alaffia’s body care products, but because they usually come in smaller jars and I like to slather them on, I can’t really afford to buy them all the time. That’s where Everyday Shea comes in. It was created to offer customers a quality petroleum-free shea butter lotion (and body wash!) at an affordable price.
When it comes to affordable, you can’t beat the value on the Everyday Shea lotions. They come in giant 32 oz. bottles with a pump, in an unscented formula as well as lavender and vanilla. The texture is light and creamy, but still has a richness that comes from all the shea butter. You can slather it on all you want, but you won’t feel greasy. The price? Just $14.95 for the giant 32 oz. bottle. Can’t beat that with a stick!
As with Alaffia, 10% of sales is given to community projects in Togo, like Bicycles for Education, maternal health, and school supplies and repairs.
Everyday Shea also makes shea butter body wash, and as soon as I find it locally I’ll be buying a bottle. For now, you can order directly from the company or use the store locator on the site to find a store near you!
