Black Soap’s original recipe came from the neighboring country of Nigeria who had for a long time used coconut, palm, and Shea Butter in their Soaps.  However  the recipe is different from one village to the next.  Workers from Ghana took this receipt back to their country and began to play with the formula.  The villagers found that the pods discarded from cocoa production could be used in the lye process and altered the recipe to create “Black” Soap, allowing them to further utilize the waste in a productive manner.

Renowned across Africa for its various health and wellness benefits, organic African Black Soap is one of the healthiest Soaps you can buy for the skin.  The purity of the ingredients themselves can be traced to their organic cultivation methods.  The undiluted nutrients in this simple Soap are loaded with essential vitamins, minerals and antioxidants.  The Soap both cleanses and moisturizes the skin with its nourishing balance of ingredients

Black Soap is also multifunctional.  Used as a natural exfoliate, black soap can be used to remove the dry skin cells which build up over time.  Unlike the Soap purchased in most stores, Black Soap cleanses without drying the skin out. Black Soap will foam into a rich lather with tiny bubbles that penetrate the skin, removing any dirt and oil to clog your pores. The lather cleanses while enriching the skin with essential vitamins, minerals and antioxidants.  Black Soap can also be used as a shampoo,body wash, and facial soap as the ingredients contained with in have natural moisturizers.  The versatility of this product is endless.
