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, vanilla extract, prunus dulcis (almond) extract.

I bought because I like the vanilla smell; but it haw vanilla extract and the smell is not strong, it smells like soap without smell......

Thanks for your feedback!

Great Black Soap

Posted by Dynamic Health Solutions on Mar 06, 2017 | Verified Purchase

Easier to use versus the black soap bar, lathers fast, cleans without overdrying the skin.

Thanks for your feedback!

I have been using this soap as a body wash for a couple of weeks and, while it is a nice enough product, you have to use a lot of it each time, around 6 or 7 pumps. It has a very, very soft scent, so if you're looking for a strong vanilla or almond scent this is not the product for you. As for the packaging, the pump is pretty useless. I think the soap is too thick for the type of pump so it gets stuck every time.

Thanks for your feedback!

A little disappointed

Posted by Reviewer2802581 on Dec 12, 2015 | Verified Purchase

Not so impressed with this. Do not last long. The scent is bland. Will not order again.

Thanks for your feedback!
