This AMAZING African Black Soap is made from the ash of locally harvested plants and barks such a plantain, cocoa pods, palm tree leaves, and shea tree bark. Many years of use by people around the world has proven it to be an amazing natural alternative for those struggling with troubled skin.
How is it made?
First the leaves and bark are sun-dried and then roasted in a kettle or pot at an even, constant temperature, which is important to ensure color, texture and smell. Then water and various oils - palm oil, coconut oil, palm kernel oil (including shea butter and cocoa pod powder) - are added to the mixture and stirred for at least a day. After that, the "soap" is left to set for two weeks to cure. Different tribes and communities in Africa have adopted their own specific blend of oils and cooking techniques, which can be seen in the different colour variations among black soap.
What is it good for?

It is also used as a light exfoliator. The soap can also be used on your hair, to treat scalp irritations. The plantain skins give the soap Vitamin A & E, and iron.

African Black Soap absorbs water, therefore please don’t let it sit in a puddle of water after use. Keep it dry to keep it from dissolving. Ideally, place the bar on a wooden soap dish with slats (or similar soap dish with drainage) to allow the soap to drain. Ideally just cut/ break off chunks that you are using and put them in your soap dish with slats, keeping the rest in an airtight container,plastic wrap, ziplock bag or similar in a cool dry storage area.
