THE BETTER SHEA BUTTER DIFFERENCE

African Black Soap's distinctive color seems like it comes from its main ingredients–the ash of palm bark and plantain leaves. The leaves and bark are first of all sun dried, then roasted at an even temperature. Palm kernel oil, water, and Shea Butter are also added; and then the soap is left to cure.


Our African black soap is hand made in West Africa, where different tribes and communities use their own secret blends of cooking techniques and oils to create a unique product. And as always, this soap is chemical-free, the way nature intends.

HOW TO USE AFRICAN BLACK SOAP

Cleansing with African Black Soap

  • If you are using raw African black soap, take the soap apart and knead it into a ball to make sure there aren’t any jagged edges, and rub between hands to work into a lather.  If you apply the soap directly to the skin, do so gently, because there could still be particles that can tear the skin.
  • Washing and rinsing with cool water can help reduce the possibility of stinging and redness.  Avoid getting the soap in the eyes.
  • If you have sensitive or very reactive skin, don’t leave the soap on the skin for a long period of time.
  • You could experience tingling or a burning sensation in acne areas, open sores and cuts.
  • If your skin feels squeaky clean afterwards, it means the skin is too dry. Try reducing the amount of soap that you use.  A very small amount (the size of a marble) can cleanse the face and neck.

Make your own body wash

You can dissolve the soap in purified water and use it as a body wash. Let it soak for a while and liquefy.   Purified water is not necessary, but recommended because you could experience different results from tap water, since some tap water has more chlorine and can be either soft or hard.

Make Your Own Body Scrub

Mix black soap with brown or white sugar and use it as a scrub. When making liquid black soap, you can also use the granules that sink to the bottom of the bottle as an exfoliant, but remove any sharp particles—some customers have reportedly found wood pieces (splinters) and pebbles in the raw African black soap.
