Product Description

Some of the Benefits of black soap - Helps deep clean skin. - Works on most skin types including rough and dry or sensitive skin - Helps clear skin bumps and spots - Helps relieve acne, oily skin & other skin problems. - Great for removing makeup - Works against premature facial lines and wrinkles - Can be lathered and used as a shampoo. Usage of the Black African Soap Break off a bar-size piece from the bulk, then press it to shape with your hands, or use it as is. Rub the bar between your hands (or on a washcloth would also work), then rub your soapy hands on your skin and hair. (If you rub the bar on your hair, it will get hair stuck to the bar.) Black soap absorbs water easily, so keep it from sitting in water or it will dissolve away. The soap holders covered with little vertical fingers work well. Because this soap is softer than commercial soap, it comes off the bar more easily, so less rubbing of the bar is needed to release enough soap. When you start another bar, just push the old soap sliver onto the new piece and the two will easily unite; leaving no waste. How to Store the Black African Soap Pure traditional African black soap is a soft milled soap and has very high natural glycerin content. As a result, it readily absorbs moisture from the air. It must be stored in a dry location or in a sealed plastic bag or it will become soft as it absorbs moisture. Black soap exposed to the air will have a thin white colored film. This film is not mold it is caused by absorption of water from the air. This can be avoided by keeping the soap in a dry location away from moisture until ready for use. Ingredients: Traditional Black Soap contains mainly cocoa pod ashes, plantain skins ashes, and palm oil, processed together.

This was my first time buying African Black Soap...had heard so much about it and wanted to give it a try. Many places on the net sell it...but I wasn't sure of making a purchase until I saw the low price on Amazon. The seller even ships PRIORITY mail...which is a plus!!! I've been using this soap for about 2 weeks and I also use it with coconut oil. My skin is GLOWING!!! No commercial soap or cleanser has made my skin look like this before. Will definitely be a repeat customer as long as the price stays low!

i purchased this because the place i wanted to order from (coastel scents) never has it in stock, to my surprise this is the best soap i have ever used on my face. Old acne scars a clearing up and it gives my face a wonderful non-oily glow.

I have sensitive skin that dries easily, so for as long as I can remember I've been on the hunt for a soap I could call my own.

Here's the skinny:

If you're used to chemical ridden market soaps like Dove or caress, then you're not going to understand Raw African soap until you research the benefits. Purchasing this without a glue then hating it is illogical. Understand that this is RAW ash soap full of natural agents that heal both face and body from the outside in.

Because this soap is ASH, its black and has a unique smell. In my opinion the smell is just fine, but some may find it too unusual and disagreeable. Again, I think the smell is completely natural and acceptable and feel any objection may be due to one unfairly comparing it to commercial soap.

More often than not this soap comes in block form. This is how it is made and distributed in Africa. To keep the price reasonable the same form is distributed in the US. If you want a factory to sit and carve this stuff into squares then you're asking for a ridiculous mark up. So, if the size is your complaint consider practicing some self sufficiency and cutting the block yourself.

The lather is amazing! A small piece could easily wash your entire body from head to toe. The soap will create a light but smooth foam that will coat and cleanse your body. Within time the average person will notice improvements in their skin condition. Like I said before I have sensitive skin so almost everything leaves me dry; this soap does strip a little as any soap will, but it causes no where near the damage commercial soaps or high lanolin/glycerin soaps will cause. I recommend rubbing your body with coconut oil daily no matter what soap you use.

I used this mainly as a face soap. If you take small bits off as you need it, it will last a REALLY long time. Mine lasted maybe over 8 months before I needed to purchase another 1 lb. Make sure you keep it dry after you use it b/c it will dissolve quickly if left in a soap dish that doesn't drain well.

I bought this after reading all the reviews and I haven't been disappointed.

I was looking because I have used almost every face wash on the planet to control my acne AND oiliness.

Most face washes would NOT clean all the dirt off, evident when I would wipe down with a toner afterward, and the exfoliating kind was too much for EVERY washing.

Storage: When I got mine, I took it out of the original plastic and put it in two ziplock bags with zippers (double layered), and I keep it stored on the bottom shelf of a cabinet, away from extreme temperatures and direct sunlight. I crumble off a bit from there (only enough for about 3 washings) and keep that on a separate soap dish in the bathroom.

Smell: It smells like soap without perfume. People complaining need to get over themselves.

Use: I have oily, acne prone skin. Blemish prone too. When I first got it, I got a little too over zealous scrubbing with an actual piece and my face went so raw afterward. DO NOT RUB DIRECTLY ON FACE. Seriously, lather with your hands. The rawness subsided after about a day.

It helped keep my acne at bay as well as oil. And your skin feels almost literally squeaky clean without over drying.

Regime: I use this in conjunction with Witch Hazel as toner, a few drops pure Grapeseed oil (yes, the kind you get in the baking aisle) as a moisturizer at night (good for hair, face, all over! Seriously IT WORKS. People comment on how soft and young my skin is all the time since I've been using it) and sunscreen went I go out during the day.

I use an aspirin mask every few days when I need to exfoliate.

I used Dudu Osun before this and I have to say I love this soap, and so does my skin. It arrived in four rectangular cubes and has a mild ashy smell. My skin is so smooth and my eczema is fading thanks to this soap. Great deal, and the price is very pocket friendly as well :)

I have very sensitive skin and I am allergic to corn, wheat and most colors and fragrances used in cosmetics, so I was super happy to get some of this soap. I like to mix a small amount of mine with water to make a gel and keep it in a jar in the shower so that I don't use too much at one time or loose any to the soap dish. This soap has a crumbly texture very much like an English pudding, if that bothers you it melts nicely in the microwave and can be stirred to a smoother texture and re-poured. Because of the high humidity (here in Florida)I find that if you leave it out it gets very soft so keep what you are not using wrapped up air tight!
