Dr. Woods Black Soap also known as Anago Soap or Alata Soap, originates from West Africa. It has been used for centuries in Africa. It's methods and secrets have been passed down from generation to generation to keep the soap close to mother nature and avoid exploitation & imitations. Many have tried to create their version of black soap with all kinds of ingredients.


For centuries, Africans have used Black Soap to help relieve acne, oily skin, clear blemishes and various other skin issues. Black soap has also been used to achieve beautiful skin. Africans have also used this natural soap for bathing and washing their hair. Today people from all walks of life are benefiting from this amazing soap. Great for removing make-up Dr. Woods Black Soap will leave your skin soft, clear and smelling delicious. This soap works against premature facial lines.


Black Soap comes from plantain skin. It is natural source of vitamins A & E and iron. (Plantain is a popular food in Africa, South America & other parts of the world. It can be found in ethnic or international grocery stores such as Latino, Caribbean or African. It looks like banana but much bigger. It does not taste like a banana & has to be cooked before eating. The skin of the plantain is gingerly dried to be precise texture under the hot african sun. It is then roasted in a clay oven. The heat must be constant in order to achieve a particular color, texture & smell.


The next process is very delicate because if it is not done properly, with the right ingredients, there will be no soap. The roasted plantain skin is mixed with palm oil, palm kernel oil to form the soap. The roasting of the plantains determines the brownish-black color of the soap. The longer the plantains are roasted, the darker the soap. Dr. Woods may be used by anyone who wishes to improve the quality of their skin.

Love it First of all, the bottle is HUGE, lasts me months. I originally bought this for my face, as a substitute for commercial face wash. Im a teenager and this didnt necessarily help with my acne, it sorta made it worse. BUT i didnt use it for long enough to be sure anways . I normally dont do well with olive oil on my face either way so I wasn't shocked or disappointed. My sister is 16, uses it and LOVES it on her face (she also gets acne) but it seems to work great on her, so it really depends on the person. I should have used it longer on my face but fear of breaking out caused me to stop. I still love this soap. It is liquidy, takes a bit to foam and it doesnt foam too much either so dont be shocked. Gets its best foam on a sponge/loofah for body washing. You dont need alot, although you may find yourself using more just because it is liquid-y, stop yourself. Doesn't dry out my sensitive skin, which is the bessttt cause my skin get irritated/dry/itchy easily. Clarifies my hair for occasional washing, when im tired/lazy I wash head to toe with this, it is so convienient for an all-around cleanser. I am also going to order the shea butter to moisturize even better. I personally LOVE the smell, it smells natural and woodsy, it is a bit strong and I love when it lingers even though I am not normally a fan of ANY smell. I was shocked with the other reviewers not enjoying the smell, HMM.. I can see what they mean with strong and "old men afterhsave" smell, but for me I smell woods and flowers?? eitherway Its not a big deal, i wouldnt make a fuss of it. Good product. March 31, 2014
Excellent for Healty Clean Skin This product is a keeper for me. It moisturizes my skin with a good clean feeling. My elderly father uses it for shaving as well as bathing. March 7, 2014
This soap is excellent for the overall everything. I use it on my face & body & it smells great. I also buy it for my daughter she noticed that its perfect when getting a few pimples here & there the outbreak lasts less time. February 10, 2014
Ordered wrong product but enjoyed it! Hi! Somehow I ordered the wrong Black Soap, and VitaCost had prepared my order the next day and it was on the way before they could stop it. I used it anyway and it was pretty good. I still want my original Black Soap with Shea, but the plain soap is still great. November 13, 2013
Excellent I use this product as hand wash in the winter when my hands are so dry and shipping and cracking. It does great job.My hands do not get over dry neither the skin breaks. Thanks! October 24, 2013
