This fabulous African Black Soap came directly from Ghana. The recipe is rich and powerful. **Please note that this is NOT the mass-produced "Black Soap" that is boxed and sold in drugstores. This soap is the REAL thing. It's a little crumbly in nature and it's softer than our handcrafted soap.
African Black Soap comes from plantain skins originally. Plantain is a rich source of vitamins A & E and iron. (Plantain is a popular food in Africa & other parts of the world. It looks much like a banana, but it's bigger and longer.) The skin of the plantain is dried to a specific texture under the hot African sun and then roasted in a clay oven. The heat must be kept precisely at a constant temperature in order to achieve a particular color, texture & smell. The roasting of the plantains determines the color of the soap. The longer the plantains are roasted, the darker the soap.
Next, the roasted skins of the Plantain are mixed with Palm oil and Palm Kernel oil to form the soap. These oils are in their purest form - without refining - and they make for a HIGHLY nourishing soap! African Black Soap is centuries old, has numerous benefits & is not scented. Tribes make their own variations, as do separate Countries and their recipes are highly guarded.
For centuries, Ghanaians have used Black Soap to help relieve acne, oily skin, clear blemishes and various other skin issues. Many swear by it for skin irritations and conditions such as Eczema and Psoriasis as well. African Black soap has also been used to achieve beautiful skin. Africans have also used this natural soap for bathing and washing their hair. It's excellent for removing make-up too! Black Soap will leave your skin soft and clear. It comes to you in it's natural form with all of it's intense natural goodness. It can be used by anyone who wishes to improve the quality of their skin.
