Last month, Ann posted about one of her favorite products — Everyday Shea moisturizer, made by a cooperative called Alaffia. The good folks there were kind enough to send SlowMama a product to giveaway — Handcrafted Shea Butter.
Anything with the word “butter” in it has got to be good, and this shea butter is no exception. It’s thick, but not greasy, and left my skin feeling super soft. It’s ideal for hands and feet and any areas that tend toward dryness. I even put it on my face. Shea butter has a lot of uses — I know moms who use it on their African-born children’s hair.
Alaffia’s shea butter is made without parabens, petroleum derivatives, or animal testing. And I like that it’s made in West Africa, with a portion of sales helping to alleviate poverty, enhance education, and improve gender equality.
This lovely shea butter can be yours if you leave a comment below telling me your favorite vacation spot. (Mine? Our family cottage in Nova Scotia.) Oh — and you can double your chances if you leave a second comment telling me that you follow SlowMama on Facebook.
Winner will be drawn on Friday at noon. Sorry, but I can only ship within North America. Good luck!
