Alaffia African Black Soap Savanna Spice -- 3 oz
This is NOT black soap
African black soap does melt, so you are supposed to break a chunk off to use little by little. Black soap is cocoa pod ashes and plaintain leaf ashes with a few other things, none of which I see in this product. Don't be fooled, this isn't the famous black soap you're probably looking for.

Too soft to use
I should have listened to the other reviewer. The stability of the bar is horrible. Even when it wasn't being used it continued to soften and leave heavy residue on whatever it was touching. It would be a real challenge trying to bathe with it, so i just use it for my face. Soft chunks smear off into my hands anytime i pick it up. The ingredients of the bar are good, but it's not solid enough for practical use. I think this would work better in liquid form because as a bar it is a sloppy mess.

Alaffia African Black Soap
We love this soap, but it is very soft and melts in the shower so it does not last very long. I have switched to a different brand of black soap that is not as soft.
