What is African Black Soap?

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.

 

Furthermore, the authentic black soap is made from a centuries old recipe of handcrafted shea butter and indigenous West African palm kernel oil. Saponification is provided by adding ashes to the hot oils, then cooking the soap for six hours. The final step is to dry and cure the soap in the sun for three weeks.

 

The extensive cooking and curing process makes authentic African black soap mild and gentle, and is the major reason for its great popularity rise in America. The second important reason is this soap's versatility. In Togo, the black soap is an "all in one" option for cleaning, and is ideal for faces and babies, shaving, shampooing, and as a general hand & body wash. Scented with invigorating peppermint essential oil.

I love this product. I use it as a face and body wash. The scent is great and not overwhelming. Lathers and rinses off well. I will buy this again. August 18, 2013
Great for shaving Ordinary shave cream is made of all sorts of chemicals and that is not a good thing. I tried coconut oil but that was not quite sufficient. Tried this product and found two pumps the right amount for my face and head. A very aromatic mint is the first listed ingredient, which is of surprising quality. I buy quantity of this product.
