In West Africa, authentic black soap is known by its Yoruba name, Osse Dudu. "Dudu" means the color black, which comes from extensive "cooking" of the soap to the point of charcoal. Many cultures in West Africa use charcoal to detoxify & purify the skin. This is an integral aspect of our true African black soap.
Alaffia's authentic black soap is made from a centuries old recipe of handcrafted shea butter and West Africa palm kernel oil. Saponification is provided by adding ashes to the hot oils, then cooking the soap in the sun for three weeks, resulting in a gentle hand & body wash for all ages.
Facial Cleanser: Apply with palms or facial cloth & massage gently over skin. Rinse clean & pat dry. Follow with Alaffia Face Cream of your choice.
Body Wash: Squeeze onto a wet loofah, scrub or wash cloth and work into a lather on body. Rinse thoroughly.
Shampoo: Apply to wet hair & massage into a rich lather. Rinse thoroughly & condition with Alaffia conditioner.
Also Good As: Hand Soap, Shaving Soap, and General Household Cleanser.
Azaradicha indica (neem) aqueous extract, saponified butyrospermum parkii (shea) butter* and elaeis guineensis (palm kernel) oil*, lauryl glucoside, eucaplytus sp. oil, melaleuca alternifolia (tea tree) oil.

Great soap for hair, face and body
Great soap for hair, face and body
I use this soap to wash my face, body and hair (dreaded). I don't find it too drying on my skin (combination/mature) and it rinses out of my dreads well with no signs of dry scalp. Lathers well for me in the town water supply here. The aroma is really nice too - not overpowering. I've tended to avoid liquid soaps for various reasons (packaging and ingredients) but happy I gave Alaffia a whirl. Will be purchasing these soaps again.

I think it dries the hair too much (I have very oily hair, and still), I personally got to the conclusion that "All in one soaps" are not that wonderful. But it does what it says. Mostly I use it as a facial wash.
Natural, Not too much foam

It smells really fresh and natural. Yet it would not make a lot of Foam , and the texture a bit too liquid, but i believe it is because it is made from natural ingredients so all are fine for me!
i like natural products but not this one

I have very fine hair, they get oily easily. A friend told me about this shampoo so I bought it here on Iherb so I gave it a try. It works wonderfully for me. I absolutely love it. I don't think I will ever buy something else again, except maybe for the smell. It smells clean but nothing special. Since I use this shampoo I feel like my hair is so happy, shiny, glossy ( I use the alba cocoa conditionner with it) . I use it also on my face and my skin got a lot better ( my pores seems smaller) and I don't need to use makeup fondation anymore. Plus, it's all natural... Thank you for this product !
