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.

Suggested Use

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.

Other Ingredients

Azaradicha indica (neem) aqueous extract, saponified butyrospermum parkii (shea) butter* and elaeis guineensis (palm kernel) oil*, lauryl glucoside, lavandula hybrida oil, cananga odorata (ylang ylang) oil.

It's OK overall. But, I feel my skin a bit dry if using it in winter.
