Authentic African Black Soap-Eucalyptus Tea Tree (32oz)
In West Africa, authentic black soap is known by its Yoruba name, Ossé Dudu. “Dudu” means the color black, which comes from extensive “cooking” of the soap to the point of charcoal. Many cultures in West Africa use charcoal to detoxify & purify the skin. This is an integral aspect of our true African black soap. Alafﬁa’s Authentic Black Soap is made from a centuries-old recipe of handcrafted shea butter and West African palm kernel oil. Saponiﬁcation is provided by adding ashes to the hot oils, then cooking the soap for six hours. The last step is drying and curing the soap in the sun for three weeks, resulting in a gentle hand & body wash.
Ingredients: Azadirachta indica (Neem) Aqueous Extract, Saponified Butyrospermum parkii (Shea) Butter* and Elaeis guineensis (Palm Kernel) Oil*, Lauryl Glucoside, Eucalyptus globulus (Eucalyptus) Oil, Melaleuca alternifolia (Tea Tree) Oil. *Certiﬁed Fair for Life-Social & Fair Trade by IMO

I LOVVVVEEE this soap!!! I use it to wash my natural hair and my daughter uses it too. It gives you that clean feeling without stripping your hair of its natural moisture. My daughter has psoriasis and this works wonderfully for her. The 32 oz size lasted about 5 months between the two of us. I'm ordering more now. Going to try the vanilla scented one as well. This has definitely become a staple product for me and my family :)

I love the product, it feels good on my skin and the smell is soothing. Though, it does not lather and create soap suds as much as I want and I have to use more than expected to get the desired result when washing my hair. Still a great product

I love this soap. It make a nice fragrance as I wash my hands. I bought the hand pump back in early spring and just had to buy the re-fill. My late daddy always said: "You get what you paid for...."
