This authentic African black soap is handmade by makers in Ghana using water, plant oils and potash. Black soap has long been known for its deep pore cleansing and rejuvenating skin properties. It is especially effective for healing acne prone skin, thanks to its antibacterial properties, reducing dark spots and healing very dry skin. The potash helps to gently exfoliate the skin, while plant oils and shea butter help to cleanse and nourish the skin. Black soap washes off the skin easily, leaving the skin feeling clean with no residue.
