African Black Soap has many known benefits. It calms irritation caused by acne and eczema. It cleans while also moisturizing, which leaves your skin soft and full of hydration instead of drying it like soaps containing synthetic fragrances and other harmful ingredients.

African Black Soap has distinctive color which comes from its main ingredients–the ash of palm bark and plantain leaves. The leaves and bark are first sun dried, then roasted at an even temperature. Palm kernel oil, water, and Shea Butter are also added; and then the soap is left to cure. Our African black soap is hand made in West Africa, where different tribes and communities use their own secret blends of cooking techniques and oils to create this unique product. And as always, this soap is chemical-free, the way nature intends.

    This soap is AMAZING!! I use it all over and on my face. I have some dry patches on my face but this has helped immensely. I can’t use the stuff with chemicals because my face will get red. This soap is the solution! I will be ordering more very soon. I haven’t experienced this kind of clean with any store bought brand. I appreciate this cruelty free and animal free product that is saving my body and face!

    Damn! Have you tried this stuff? Not like the dudu oson (?) stinky fake stuff. You can tell this stuff is hand made and it is nice. Great for soap recipes too.

    I love this soap! It has cleared up and brightened my acne-prone skin without drying it out.

    Love it! Got this as a birthday present a year ago and was intimidated by the size… once I cracked into it, i began taking it everywhere! I keep chunks at the counter for face wash, and I also pocket it when I go on backpacking treks! This soap followed by rose hip oil has saved my skin from aging quickly in the desert sun and stress overload. Not only that, it only takes a few uses to clear up the irritations and acne from long, sweaty workouts and adventures!

    This soap is amazing. It gives you a rich lather and makes your skin feel silky smooth. I also use it as a face soap. This soap last a long time. I cut mine into wedges, but you can also just break off what you need. I will definately buy this product again. Thank you so much for bringing such great natural products to the public. It’s nice to have a reasonably priced natural alternative to regular soap. Debbie

    ABSOLUTELY THE BEST! This soap has saved my complexion and for the first time in my life, I have clear, radiant skin! I remember when I first started using it, my face felt tight after I’d wash it. But my skin quickly adjusted and realized the good that was coming its way. This is quality stuff, and no added artificial nonsense like some of the black soaps they sell in stores. I also feel safe using it on my body, lady parts, and hair. It works for everything. Get stubborn black marks off my boyfriends hands too, from a hard days work. Be sure not to let it sit in water as it will dissolve. You can even put a little in bottle with water and make shampoo or body wash! Amazing stuff from the precious mother earth and I recommend it highly!

    I love this product. I purchased several bars in early Spring 2018. I attempted to order more for family and friends around November 2018 but the item was out of stock. I was hoping it would be back in stock by now. Can someone please give me the scoop on what’s going on? Why has the soap been unavailable for so long? When can I expect the soap to be in stock?

      We have been out of stock because the last batch we received from Ghana was very crumbly and dry, it did not pass our quality control and we had to return it. We have a fresh batch being produced as of Feb 13 2019, we are hoping to get it here in 2 weeks and back in stock. Authentic Black Soap is not made anywhere in the US, so when something goes wrong with a batch, we have to start over – but fingers crossed, we will have this resolved soon. Thank you for your patience 🙂
