Black Soap has been used for centuries all over the continent of Africa to maintain beautiful skin. A natural source of vitamins A & E, black soap is made with different recipes across Africa but mostly it is made from the ashes of plantain skins, shea tree bark, palm tree leaves and cocoa pods... the common misconception is that black soap is actually black and in reality traditional black soap comes in varying shades of brown.
I live for black soap like so many others but one of the things that I don't like is how drying it can be to the skin, so in an effort to give it a more moisturizing effect we add organic mango butter at trace to allow for a more moisturizing clean... i even use it as a shampoo bar when I am traveling to keep from traveling with so much liquid. Our black soap is custom made just for us by friends of ours in Nigeria and it has always been a best seller for us. Get them while they last because once we post a new batch it goes so quickly! It comes in a whopping 10oz bar and if you're a soap lover like me you can make it last forever by cutting it into one inch pieces and store the rest in a zip lock bag... because of its natural glycerin content it collects moisture from the air and sweats so treat it like the gold it is and have beautiful skin!
Because we are a small batch apothecary, we like to provide you with the freshest and best quality products so please allow one week for shipping from date of purchase although usually we get things out much quicker than that.
