Benefits of Black
Soap from Africa
Soap from Africa is also known as ose dudu and anago soap. It is made
from the combination of burnt leaves of plantain and palm as well as
banana bark, cocoa pods and shea butter. All ingredients are burned
in a pot, and coconut oil, palm kernel oil and palm oil are added to
the mixture, which is stirred for 24 hours by hand, after which the
paste is set to cure for two weeks.
African black soap
is thought to help soften rough skin and relieve skin irritation
caused by acne and rashes. It is even considered beneficial for
treating skin conditions such as eczema and psoriasis, which is when
skin cells grow quickly on the surface, forming itchy and dry
in the plantain leaves are thought to be the primary components that
give Black Soap its healing properties. Some of these ingredients
include iron as well as vitamin A, K and E.
Black Soap contains
oils that are beneficial to the scalp and hair, leaving it clean and
shiny. It also contains glycerin, which is a humectant, meaning it
promotes the retention of moisture. This humectant action will
attract and retain moisture in the hair shaft.
Avoid using black
soap if you have oily hair.
African Black Soap
is highly cleansing to the skin and hair and can help in the
treatment of dandruff. It contains no chemicals and therefore helps
restore natural skin balance while still acting upon harmful bacteria
that may cause infection. It is especially beneficial in cleansing
off makeup. It may also even-out skin discoloration and minimize fine
lines and wrinkles.
You can also use it to clean wounds on any
part of the skin by adding it to your bath water and soaking in it
for at least 15 minutes. Since Black Soap is chemical free, it will
not foam as much as conventional soaps.
Your first week of
using Black Soap your skin may feel tight and dry, but this is
because it is stripping the oils and dead skin and other impurities.
Keep using it and the Pure African Black Soap will soon balance your
skin chemistry naturally.

Soap is made in the heart of Ghana, Africa by a real African tribe
using the traditional methods and ingredients. It is made with
48 percent pure, organic unrefined Shea Butter and wild crafted

fragrance and additional conditioning. What's more, there are NO
chemicals, NO animal fats, NO preservatives, NO colorants or
color enhancers and NO artificial fragrances added to our Raw

Soap is the oldest
cleanser around. It is created by a chemical reaction between
oils, water and lye called saponification. Although lye is used
to make soap, there is no lye left after saponification is complete.
There is no such thing as a bar soap that is made without using lye.
The African Black Soap is made using natural lye that is found in the
ashes of the plantain drying process that is the best in the world.
So even the lye used in this traditional soap is all natural and
African Black Soap
has been historically used and clinically proven effective in the
treatment of acne, eczema, psoriasis, scars, pock marks, uneven skin
coloration, compromised skin texture, dandruff, dull or limp hair,
fungus, athletes foot, chronic foot odor, and so much more.
