I HAVE TRIED WHOLE TRADE PRODUCTS BEFORE AND WHAT COMES TO ME FIRST IS THE PURITY AND EFFICACY OF THESE PRODUCTS. THE SMELL IS VERY NATURAL RATHER THAN ARTIFICIAL OR SYNTHETIC. I AM GLAD TO SUPPORT THE POOREST OF NATIONS THAT CAN STILL PRODUCE AND GIVE BACK IN SOME BACK. THIS IS THE REWARD BACK TO THEM. GOOD PRODUCTS WITH HONEST LABEL AND INTENT BEHIND IT! CUDOS TO YOU ALL THE WAY AROUND THE WORLD.

As a team member of whole body- whole foods I can personally say that over and over again customers come back and tell me how much they love allafia products and their vision. It's hard to find a company with such amazing integrity too. I thank everyone associated with this wonderful company and it's beautiful leader.

I would much rather buy Whole Trade guaranteed products and know that our neighbors are treated and paid fairly for their work!

Many conveniences are bad for you. So much of WF's labeling -- heck, the trust of everything they have selected to sell -- is convenience done right. Ethical choices made easy!

It is important that the money I spend on products goes to the people who made the products rather than all of it going to the middle man/woman. I support fair trade and direct trade in all areas.

I love Alaffia's products both for hair and body. I see growth in my hair, and while getting excess weight off of my body, the products are helping with getting rid of stretch marks! I am glad I gave my bike to help those in need in Togo! Continued success to you and the company!

We are are so wealthy compared to most of the world. It is important to buy fair trade so that workers earn a wage that can support their families. It is wonderful to read all of the good that comes from supporting this company and buying their products! I will definitely look for these products next time I am in the store.

It's nice to not have to research everything and to know that Whole Foods has done that for you.

My family has been using the shea butter lotion and shower gels for well over a year now, because they are natural products, and work well. I have to admit that if there's a comparable choice, I will pick the fair trade product over others, but cannot always afford the price tag. I had no idea, but now I am so pleased to hear that our use has been supporting such a worthy cause. I was going to definitely continue using Alaffia products, and now I'll do it with a little more pride.

I love supporting anything that empowers women and helps communities in countries that don't have the same opportunities that we have here. It's great to have a store that makes these products easily accessible, and makes it easy for us to make a small difference.

I believe it is very important to not only support local business, but extending that support to the global economy is very beneficial.If everyone works together, we can create a mission to support each other, and feel good about contributing our piece of the worldly love that we are so in need of! It is our GOD given right to be happy and loving . Peace and Blessings abound! Vel Hopkins

It is always great to hear about the good that happens in today's world. what an awesome way in which to empower these women, by giving them the opportunity to produce goods, that in turn will help the community. My next trip to Whole Foods will definitely be to support the cause by trying the products.

I love buying Whole Trade™ Guaranteed products because of a triple win. i get great products, they get to support themselves and teach their children to support themselves and the store who sells the products has an ethical high quality product to offer clients.

Why buy anything else when the option exists to help these women?

Organic products that are fair trade really show how human beings can help one another and bring true success and a sense of meaning to our own lives by helping to enrich the lives of others!!
