African Black Soap
This is an all natural soap made in West Africa using traditional methods from roasted cocoa pods, shea butter, palm oil and coconut oil.
The world is waking up to the amazing properties of this deep cleansing and moisturising soap; known to help fight acne, reduce scars and blemishes, and keep the skin youthful.
Black soap can also be used as a sulphate-free shampoo replacement. The lather from black soap is rich and completely natural, and comes from its roasting process.
A great every day cleansing soap for the whole family.
Directions for use:
Bath/Shower: Do not rub the bar directly on skin as it can have an uneven texture from any residual cocoa pod particles. This may scratch the skin. Instead work the lather up in your hands or rub your wet sponge/flannel over the soap bar to produce the lather. Then use hands/sponge/flannel to wash skin.
Shampoo replacement: Rub wet hands across the bar to produce the lather and then use hands to clean scalp and hair.
Black soap has a naturally high glycerine content which means it does dissolve quickly. Therefore do not immerse the full bar in water. To help the bar go as far as possible, use the method described above at each use and keep it dry in between uses, or alternatively you may break off a small amount to use each time.
As the suds dry on the bar, or as the bar is exposed to air, a white film/crystals may form; this is entirely normal and does not affect the quality of the soap. The white disappears once water is applied again.
As with any new product, please test the soap on a small, discrete area of your skin first to ensure it is suitable to your skin type.
