Black soap has traditionally been used in West Africa as a remedy for many skin ailments, from discoloration and acne, to eczema and rashes. It is said to be great for all skin types, including the most sensitive.
How it is made
Black soap is made with ash from roasted plantain skins, which are a good source of vitamins A, E, roasted cocoa pods, coconut oil, shea and cocoa butter. The soap is free of lye, which is replaced with the ash from roasted plantain skins and cocoa pods. The coco pod ash provides the mildest form of exfoliation that is good for every day use. The goodness of butters and oils in the soap treats any sort of dryness.
Bonus: It contains no fragrance oil or essential oils, and has a naturally earthy scent.
