What is African Black Soap?

In West Africa, authentic black soap is known by its yoruba name, Osse Dudu. "Dudu" means the color black, which comes from the extensive "cooking" of the soap to the point of charcoal. Many cultures in West Africa use charcoal to detoxify and purify the skin, and this is an integral aspect of our true African black soap.

Furthermore, our authentic black soap is made from a centuries old recipe of handcrafted shea butter and indigenous West African palm kernel oil. Saponification is provided by adding ashes to the hot oils, then cooking the soap for six hours. The final step is to dry and cure the soap in the sun for three weeks.

The extensive cooking and curing process makes authentic African black soap mild and gentle, and is the major reason for its great popularity rise in America. The second reason is this soap's versatility. In Togo, our black soap is an "all in one" option for cleaning, and is ideal for faces and babies, shaving, shampooing, and as a general hand & body wash. Scented with invigorating peppermint essential oil.

Suggested Use

Facial Cleanser: Apply with palm or facial cloth and massage gently over skin. Rinse clean and pat dry. Follow with Alaffia Face Cream of your choice.

I have been looking for cleanser that is compatible with my sensitive, oily skin and gives me a strong feel of refreshment(like my skin has been cleansed). And so far, my heart is at ease with using this product. To add to its advantages, I sometimes use it as my laundry soap and handsoap. It is fairtrade as well, so ethnically it agrees with my principles.

Thanks for your feedback!

Smell good and not dry
