What is African Black Soap?
African Black Soap, commonly known as Black Soap, is a popular skin care product that originates from Africa. It is made from plant-based ingredients and is usually handmade and free from harsh chemicals found in mass-produced soaps in the market.
The ingredients of Black Soap vary depending on the region of Africa where it was created. Each unique formula depends on the natural plant ingredients that are abundant in that location. The most common ingredients are Shea Butter, Coconut Oil, Palm Oil.
What can Black Soap do?
It is known to treat blemishes, eczema, psoriasis, sun damage, razor bumps, skin allergies and irritation. Through continuous use, it improves the look of fine lines and wrinkles, as well as scars and stretch marks. It can even out dark spots and protect the skin further through the antioxidants it contains.
How to use Black Soap
Black Soap commonly comes in a bar form. The texture is commonly rough and crumbly, and the bars come in different shapes and sizes.
To use it, wet the soap and work into a lather. Some Black Soaps contain large natural particles (ex. Cocoa pod husk), so make sure to remove those (if any) that can scratch your skin. Apply it on the skin then rinse thoroughly.
