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 a clarifying blend of citrus essential oils.


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.


Also good as: Hand Soap, Shaving Soap and General Household Cleanser.

Works great! I really like this product, it has great ingredients and it's so mild, I use it to wash my face. It has a slight and pleasant fragrance and it lathers well. March 4, 2014
A wonderful discovery I tried this product because I love the smell of tangerine. What I didn't expect is how soft my skin would feel after using this product. (I made the mistake of getting the 16 oz bottle instead of the 32 oz bottle.) It's a great product for a reasonable price, and I can't wait to try their face and hair care products. Yes, you can use it as a shampoo, also. It left my hair in excellent condition. I barely needed to use conditioner. Even better, Alaffia is fair trade and handcrafted by women, are involved in reforestation and environmental projects to combat global climate change, and many other wonderful projects to help others.
