Our Liquid African Black Soap has a wonderful creamy lather and leaves the skin feeling moisturised and soft. It looks a bit like melted chocolate! It is one of the healthiest soaps for the skin due to the purity and simplicity of the ingredients. We craft our liquid black soap with organic rosewater for optimum skincare benefits. Rosewater is a skin tonic in it’s own right and can help to settle aggravated, irritated skin. This combination makes it a fantastic facial soap and it is helpful for dry, sensitive or problem skin types.
It makes a great body soap and we love using it from top to toe.
There are no chemicals, preservatives, colour enhancers or fragrances added to this recipe. The dark colour of the soap is developed as a result of the saponification process. It is completely free from black dyes and charcoal. The African Black Soap used in this product is traditionally hand crafted and fairly traded with producers in Ghana, West Africa. It is made with 50% pure, organically grown shea butter and wildcrafted palm oil.
Black soap can also be used successfully as a shampoo for very dry or afro hair types. It’s moisturising qualities make it a good choice for very dry hair types. (It can be a little too heavy for finer hair)
Our authentic African black soap is sourced from a women’s project in Ghana,West Africa. They produce environmentally friendly and socially responsible African products, such as organic shea butter. The black soap project enables thousands of Ghanaian women to supply an international market with their produce. Supporting such projects facilitates the protection of trees, for example; the shea parklands in the Western Savannah. It also preserves biodiversity and the natural habitats for hippopotamus living by the Black Volta River.
