BEWARE OF IMITATIONS: Because our African Black Soap is so popular there are plenty of imitations. Despite what the box says, “African Black Soap” usually contains dye and no African Black Soap at all. Sometimes the term African Black Soap is used for soap that is not even black at all.
The Legend of the African Black Soap: At some point in early history humans realized that soap could be made with the ashes of plants and fats (and or oils). This natural form of soap preceded modern soap making by thousands of years. Somewhere in West Africa ancient soap making was taken a few steps further and African Black Soap was created. Plaintain and cacao pods are made into ash and cooked with local palm oil and shea butter until the soap turns black. This blackening process of the soap ash creates a highly healing soap that is famed for amazing feats. From getting rid of cystic acne when all else failed to make skin look tens of years younger, true African Black Soap produces radiant skin without harsh chemicals.
To produce our African Black Soap bars we combine African Black Soap with nourishing organic shea butter, organic coconut cream oil, and organic virgin olive oils and kettle cook them in a modern soap making method to make our final bar. Out bars are handcrafted and not mass produced in soap mills with Indian soap noodles. The results is a very nourishing bar of soap brimming with humectant glycerin.
