In West Africa, authentic black soap is known by its Yoruba name, Osse Dudu. "Dudu" means the color black, which comes from the extensive "cooking" of soap to the point of charcoal. Many cultures in West Africa use charcoal to detoxify and purify the skin, and this is an integral aspect of the true African black soap.
Alaffia's authentic black soap is made from a centuries old recipe of handcrafted shea butter and West African palm kernel oil. Saponification is provided by adding ashes to the hot oils, then cooking the soap for six hours. The last step is drying and curing the soap in the sun for three weeks, resulting in a gentle hand & body wash for all ages.
Facial Cleanser: Apply with palm or facial cloth and massage gently over skin. Rinse clean and pat dry. Follow with Alaffia Face Cream of your choice.
Body Wash: Squeeze onto a wet loofah, scrub or wash cloth and work into a lather on body. Rinse thoroughly.
Shampoo: Apply to wet hair and massage into a rich lather. Rinse thoroughly and condition with Alaffia or Everyday Shea conditioner.

Alaffia African Black Soap For All Skin and Hair Types Peppermint -- 16 fl oz
Great product. Exceeded my expectations.
I really like this as a shampoo. Makes my hair look and feel really healthy. I have fine hair and an oily, sensitive scalp- too sensitive for most shampoos- and this is probably the best mild and effective shampoo I have used to date. I find the peppermint smell a bit strong for a face wash, so I'm buying the orange scent to try as well.
