African Black Soap
African black soap is an all-natural cleanser made from plant materials that gently cleanses skin and hair. This soap is good for all skin types, is known to fight acne, serves as a gentle exfoliator, reduce fine lines & wrinkles, even skin tone, treat eczema, minimize scars & blemishes, and is naturally anti-fungal. African black soap is brown in color, somewhat crumbly, and has an earthy scent.
How to use: Because African Black Soap is unrefined, some users report a burning or stinging sensation when applying the bar directly to the face or body. To avoid this, simply squeeze off a small piece of African black soap and create a lather in your hands before rubbing it onto the skin. Rinse with cool water. For best results, follow up with your favorite moisturizer afterwards.
Store soap in an airtight container or sealed plastic bag.
How African Black Soap is Made
African soap is traditionally made by harvesting and sun-drying palm leaves, cocoa pods and the bark from shea and plantain trees. This material is then roasted in a kettle at a constant temperature and mixed with oils, such as coconut and palm oil. The soap then cures for two weeks before it's ready to use.
Plantain Peels – Cooking bananas (or Musa paradisiaca) are a good source of antioxidants, protein, folic acid, thiamine, riboflavin, potassium, and vitamin C.
Cocoa Pods – Rich in antioxidants, cocoa pods – or the shells that house the treasured cocoa bean – also have strong anti-inflammatory properties.
Coconut Oil – A well-rounded ingredient indeed, coconut oil cleans and moisturizes the skin, and helps kick start collagen production.
Palm Kernel Oil – Obtained from the seed of Elaeis guineensis, palm kernel oil is rife with several types of fatty acids.
Palm Oil – Derived from the fruit of the palm tree, unrefined palm oil (known as red palm oil) is abundant in vitamin E, alpha and beta carotene and other antioxidants, as well as essential fatty acids (*sustainably sourced).
Shea Butter – Also plentiful in beneficial fatty acids, shea butter is a prized ingredient for silky smooth skin. It helps repair damaged skin tissues and boost the body’s ability to generate collagen.
