Authentic Imported Raw African Black Soap, 4 oz
Our raw authentic African black soap is imported from western Africa. Credited by many to aid in many skin care issues, this rustic soap is growing in mainstream popularity.
This raw soap doesn’t look like regular bar soap as it isn't smooth or uniform in shape. The texture of the soap is semi-soft and it can be a bit crumbly but never hard like regular bar soap. This is because African black soap is made from naturally occurring lye found in plantain or wood ashes. This form of lye, called potash, creates a softer, more malleable bar that will absorb water easily so it's best to keep this out of direct water or it will break down faster than it should.
A look at its key ingredients:
Palm Kernel Oil contributes to the hardness of the soap, helping to create a bar that lasts longer, promotes lather stability, and adds a silky feel to the soap.
Coconut Oil contributes to the hardness of the soap, helping to create a bar that lasts longer, and provides a fluffy, bubbly lather to the soap, even in hard water conditions.
Shea Butter contributes to the hardness of the bar, lather stability and is wonderful for skin conditioning. Shea contains a large percentage of ingredients that do not react with lye, thus remaining in the soap to nourish your skin. Shea butter is said to be beneficial for treating dry skin, blemishes, skin discoloration, scars and wrinkles.

I was a bit skeptical to buy this since I'd bought 'black soap' before that turned out to not be authentic - this is the real deal!
