Here’s a quick lesson in skincare history: In West Africa, traditional black soap is made by mixing the ash of local plants and barks with healing oils. Rich in vitamins A and E, it’s become prized by women around the world for its abilities to battle blemishes and the signs of skin aging. This powerful powder is African black soap in its raw form, which, when mixed with water, creates a scrub that gently washes away dead skin. Its raw, organic formula—no harsh chemicals, dyes, or additives—leaves skin clean, rejuvenated, and healthy. The multifunctional formula also calms irritated scalps, clears up acne, and soothes razor bumps.
How it Works
All-natural ingredients including plantain peels, cocoa pods, and tree kernels are roasted in clay ovens, broken down into ash, then packaged into jars. When mixed with water, the powder creates a scrub that dissolves sebum, helping to exfoliate dead skin.
How to Use
The soap comes in pure powder form. Add a spoonful of water to powder to create a paste, then gently massage onto face and body with fingertips. The more water you add, the thinner the paste becomes. Wash away with water. To create shampoo, dilute with water.
