Black Soap

Black Soap

All natural African black soap is made from dried plantain skins, palm leaves and cocoa pod. There are a ton of different kinds of black soap from big cosmetic companies are not 100% pure. Some of the black soap on the market are just black from dye and have tons of chemicals in them. Pure black soap gets its color from roasted plantain skin not dye.

Black soap is cleansing soap that works really well on oily acne prone skin. You can use 100% black soap all over your body but you will need to moisturize after using it. It will make your skin squeaky clean. I use this soap on my face to fight breakouts.

Some black soap is stronger than others because of the way it is made. Black soap should not burn your skin. If the black soap burns than you should stop using it. I have had extremely strong black soap that burned my face so much I was red. I thought this was normal because I had purchased it from a spa. After awhile I stopped using the soap and now I am using but again but with much more knowledge and understanding of what I am using on my face.

If you have a piece of 100% real black soap you should be able to break little pieces of it off and lather the small pieces. Black soap can last a long time depending on how big the piece is that you bought. Black soap lathers really well and you only need a small amount to get the job done. These are all things that I KNOW to be true about black soap. African black soap is soft with an organic shape and texture and an earthy scent to it.

Some people cut the soap and put them in balls. Honestly that’s just a marketing thing that makes it look nice and unique. The soap can be cut in different ways depending on how the seller wants to sell it. It does not have to be a bar or a ball, it can be a chunk. Do not get caught up in the packaging. Be more concerned with who made it, where it’s from and how it was made.

      LOL! You must live on the east coast! Thats how you used to be able to get black soap out here too but now you can find it in most beauty supplies in my area. They sell the raw black soap in balls or chunks. I prefer to get it from West African’s though just because they grew up with it so they know they way it’s supposed to look, smell, lather and how strong it should be.
