My wife and I are both users of the Every Day Shea Lavender and we love it. It's never far away from you when we're home.. and even have downsized it into smaller bottles for in the car and at work... It goes on so smooth and it's quickly absorbed into the skin. Truly a life saver for skin especially now during the winter with the cold and the snow we've experienced this year. Finally, the fact that by using this Whole Trade product helps support the women of Togo makes it all that more fantastic! Continue the good work that in turn allows us to support your efforts with our purchases. Namaste

Until everyone has a roof over their head, clean water, food and an education, there will be no peace in the world. Projects such as this, empower those without to become all they were meant to be.

I don't want to be one of those people who blindly purchases products without realizing the suffering/abuse that may have been involved. I can sleep soundly knowing that i am contributing ethically to a hard worker.

When I buy whole trade coffee, I know I'm not contributing to the child labor abuses prevalent in that industry. That makes me feel I'm contributing to the world in a small, positive way.

I have been battling psoriasis for 4 years. I have spent hundreds of dollars on cremes, lotions, ointments, prescriptions, etc. I discovered Everyday Shea about 6 months ago. My hands are free and clear of dry skin and breakouts. I could not be happier with the product and the fact that I am empowering women half a world away is heartwarming, to say the least. The women of Africa are truly the salt of the earth! Thank you for sharing their stories.

I believe in purchasing Fair Trade products, and have tried to do so for awhile now. I feel in my small way, I am making a difference in the lives of others, in a big way. I love the coffee, chocolate, and banana's. I will be trying the Everyday Shea, I'm sure it will be a wonderful addition the growing list of fair trade items!

I want to empower women. When they earn a good living it gives them higher standing in their families and communities. For them to be producitve outside the home, often in a social setting, also contributes to their mental wellbeing.

If we are really serious about empowering developing nations, we need to put our money where our mouth is! Buying top quality products produced sustainably by traditional methods benefits the buyer as well as making a better life for the women who produce them!

What other reasons do you need to purchase Whole Trade Products than their commitment to quality, to the environment, and to healthy working conditions? My dry skin drinks in the shea butter body with relief and thanks. It works!

What's best about the Whole Trade line is that it supports the preservation of traditional knowledge and crafts. Kudos to Whole Foods for respecting economic and cultural sustainability.

It's wonderful to know that by purchasing a product that it's going to help a community learn and to be more self-sufficient through whole trade with the added benefit of empowering women. Coming into Whole Foods is a teaching opportunity for our future generations. Teaching my 12 year old son what the labels on the packages mean, one of which is whole trade. I will be passing along the Everyday Shea story so he understands more clearly how whole trade directly effects the lives of individuals. Thanks Whole Foods
