Black Soap Bar

Black Soap Bar


Black soap has been around for a long time. So long, in fact, that we can’t even tell you when it was first made. Recipes for black soap have been handed down for centuries in African communities, each one a little bit different than the next, but all having the same phenomenal healing properties. Our black soap follows a traditional recipe, which includes several plant-based oils and crushed cocoa pod and plantain ash for exfoliation. Black soap is kind of the holy grail of skin care. Oily skin? Antioxidants and vitamins help balance your oil production. Dry skin? Natural plant oils nourish and retain moisture. It is gentle enough for children or people with sensitive skin, but potent enough to heal even the toughest problem skin. Basically, this soap’s got you covered. Try it for: Acne, Dark Spots, Wrinkles, Eczema, Sun Damage, Scars.
