Raw African Black Soap
Black soap is the primary soap used in West Africa. It is all natural, made from barks and oils such as coconut oil, shea oil, palm oil, palm kernel oil, and cocoa butter. It takes a full day to make and is cured for two weeks.
The final and authentic product should look raw and crumbly with an earthy smell. A reliable and very reasonable source is Shea -N- More.
African Black Soap is said to have anti-aging properties and helps to deter stretch marks. It's excellent for acne, blemishes, oily skin and other skin conditions. For extra strength, let it sit on your skin for about a minute before washing it off. It is an astringent so there may be a slight burning sensation. The burn let's you know it's working. And it does work.
