African Black Soap - LoveShea Skincare
African Black Soap - LoveShea Skincare

This is an all natural soap made in West Africa using traditional methods from roasted cocoa pods, shea butter 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.

INGREDIENTS: Elaeis Guineensis Oil, Butyrospermum Parkii Butter, Cocos Nucifera Oil, Theobroma Cacao Ash.

not a fan

not a fan of this. Leaves my skin feeling squeaky clean which I don't like

Hi Sade Thanks for trying our African Black Soap. This is a deep cleansing soap which is traditionally made, and that "squeaky clean" feeling is one of it's properties, and makes the soap really effective for breakouts and blemishes. Of course this isn't for everyone. We actually have a foaming face wash range coming soon which is perfect for delicate or sensitive skin, and much milder than the African Black Soap. I've been using it myself for the last few weeks and really loving it (biased of course!) and can't wait to launch it. This might be one for you to try :) Lola x

Great soap!

I have just started using this and I love it already. Really nice natural feel to it, smell is not over powering and gives your skin a really good clean. I've brought the bundle but will definitely be restocking once I'm done! Thank you!
