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.

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

African miner (ocimum canum) extract (aqueous), african black soap (saponified shea butter* (butyrospermum parkii) and palm kernel oil (elaeis guineensis)), lauryl glucoside, peppermint essential oil.

iHerb Customer Reviews

So I haven’t tried this out yet. But I bought it stupidly without looking at the ingredients. This isn’t African black soap? There’s no actual black soap ingredients in here? Shea and palm oil are usually used in the recipe but neither of them are necessary for genuine black soap so I’m really mad about this.

Thanks for your feedback!

Good Product

Posted by Hend-KSA on February 6 2018 | Verified Purchase

It’s nice and thick and cleans really well but I noticed it didn’t really last a whole lot of time with me I don’t know if I’m using up a lot of the soap to make sure it clean properly or if there isn’t much product in it

Thanks for your feedback!

Very nice

I kind of feel like i put lotion on my hands after using this.. i like soaps that make me feel squeeky clean and not moisturised.. And it kind og pumps out alot of soap and makes my sink dottet with brown soap spots.. But good soap though..

Thanks for your feedback!

My favourite face cleanser

Posted by iHerb Customer on December 12 2017 | Verified Purchase

I use it mornings an evenings only on my face. Even if I wear make up, I wash my face twice with it. It helped a lot in clearing my skin.

Thanks for your feedback!

Pretty good

This reminds me very much of Dr. Bronner's soap. I do like this and use it as a face/body wash. Good amount for price.

Thanks for your feedback!
