I am a big fan of African black soap. I use it for everything, as my body wash, face wash, makeup remover, and hand wash. Black soap is such a versatile soap that won't leave your skin feeling or looking dry.
What Is African Black Soap?
Black soap is made from the ash of plantain leaves, palm oil, Shea butter, and cocoa pod powder. The scented soap has more benefits than a typical store-bought bar because it contains no synthetic chemicals or preservatives that may be harsh on your skin. Some people also use black soap as their preferred skincare product because it is more natural and has healing properties.
Why Is African Black Soap Great for Skin?
The high concentration of Shea butter in the soap leaves skin soft, supple, and moisturized. It also contains antioxidants that help your body with scarring from acne or other skin conditions.
Black soap is a natural cleanser that can be used to wash off makeup and other dirt before bedtime. It's also great for delicate skin because it will not irritate and dry out your complexion the way a typical store-bought bar might do. It is gentle enough that people who have allergies or sensitive skin are able - with some caution -to use this product on their faces without issue!
