FOR LIFE AND FAIR FOR LIFE BY ECOCERT

FOR LIFE AND FAIR FOR LIFE BY ECOCERT

Alaffia is a For Life certified operation by ECOCERT for demonstrated corporate responsibility. Several of our products, including those with a primary base of shea or coconut, are also certified Fair for Life – ECOCERT’s fair trade product certification.

ECOCERT is one of the first and most renowned international inspection and certification agencies for fair trade accountability, combining strict social and fair trade standards with adaptability to local conditions. Fair trade certification ensures producers in economically disadvantaged countries receive a greater percentage of the price paid by consumers. As an example, Alaffia pays 15-25% above market price for shea nuts. Cooperative members also receive a salary more than 4x the average family income in Togo.

Made Safe

Made Safe

The MADE SAFE seal means that a product is literally made with safe ingredients™ not known or suspected to harm human health, animals or ecosystems. It’s the only nontoxic certification to apply to products used every day.

MADE SAFE’S certification process is rigorous, scientific and unique. Certified products have been thoroughly examined by researchers, scientists and/or discipline-specific experts to ensure they're made without known behavioral toxins, carcinogens, developmental toxins, endocrine disruptors, flame retardants, heavy metals, neurotoxins, high risk pesticides, reproductive toxins, toxic solvents, or harmful VOCs. MADE SAFE then goes above and beyond: Ingredients are further examined for bioaccumulation (builds up in our bodies), persistence (builds up in the environment), general ecosystem harm, as well as for aquatic and animal toxicity. This 360-degree assessment makes MADE SAFE the leading standard in the country.
