Organic, Handmade African Black Soap
Our African black soap is handcrafted in small batches and imported directly from Africa. One of the most perfect soaps to use on your skin, African black soap is renowned for it's purity and simplicity of ingredients. Skin of all ages loves and appreciates this soap, from the littlest to the most sensitive and mature, this soap is really amazing. It has been known to help with eczema and severe acne, soothing the skin, and cleansing in a way that most soap cannot.
Its simple three-ingredient blend consists of: unrefined shea butter, unrefined palm kernel oil, and real potash (to saponify the oils into soap). These ingredients are hand-gathered from around the local villages and are not ingredients from a farmed plantation.
African black soap is not like typical store-bought or handmade soaps. It's not hard like traditionally used soap; it's soft and almost squishy. It still holds the vast majority of its naturally-occurring glycerine in the bar and this keeps it soft. This is a great thing for us! We get to benefit from all of this natural glycerine to hydrate and protect our skin when we use this bar. Because of this, our African black soap should be stored away from standing water, and preferably in an airtight container. This also keeps it from absorbing water from the air. Yeah, it does that. But again, another upside for us - this soap attracts moisture and helps to keep our skin refreshed and hydrated without harsh chemicals or stripping the skin.
We recommend storing your black soap in an airtight container for maximum benefit. If you notice "white spots" that appear on the bar, this is from being exposed to the air, and is in no way a sign of your soap going rancid. We break apart the pieces that we need and store the rest to keep this soap lasting the longest and remaining the amazingly soft and pliable hunks that we love so much.
This soap is FRAGRANCE FREE, but does hold that classic Black Soap scent and is almost wood-smoky due to the intense amount of unrefined and truly raw Shea Butter that is used in the process of creating these amazing bars.
You will receive a 4 oz bar of this soap, and it will come sealed and airtight. If your bar arrives in more than one piece, this is normal due to the softness of the bar. It can be used just fine in this manner and we recommend that your bar be used in small pieces, by either tearing apart or cutting your soap and storing the rest.
