African Black Soap has incredible benefits for irritated skin while at the same time cleaning and moisturizing. Our authentic Black Soap is handmade in Africa following traditional recipes to make it the best choice for all skin types. Black Soap is free of synthetic ingredients, fragrances and any junk ingredients. And, best of all, it contains Unrefined Shea Butter to keep your skin nourished.

Authentic Black Soap has a 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. The soap is then 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.

How to Use Black Soap

Our Black Soap is packaged in a large 1 LB brick. To use it, cut off a small sliver, leave the rest in its original packaging and store in a cool place. Use the sliver of soap when washing your hands, face or body until the small piece of soap is used up. Repeat by cutting off another piece of soap, and continue that way until you have it all used up! Black Soap is free of any synthetic ingredients that would normally “hold” a soap together, so it’s best to use small pieces at a time.

Weight: 16 oz (1 pound)

Ingredients: Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea Butter), Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Oil, Elaeis Guineensis (Palm) Kernel Oil, Plantain (Plantain) Leaf Ash, Theobroma Cacao (Cocoa) Pod



Store African Black Soap either in its original packaging, or place in a plastic or glass jar with a lid.  Keep it in a cool, dry place.

    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 🙂

    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!
