Product Description

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: Ocimum canum (African Mint) Aqueous Extract, Saponified Butyrospermum parkii (Shea) Butter* & Elaeis guineensis (Palm Kernel) Oil*, Lauryl Glucoside, Mentha arvensis (Peppermint) Oil. *Certified Fair Trade by IMO

  1. Best facial soap for sensitive skin!! Love at first pump! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on Jan 6th 2017

    I used to purchase other black soaps from a different company, but they never did what I wanted them to do. A friend gave me Alaffia's Peppermint Black Soap as a gift and I knew I found a winner from the first use. I used it for about a month and saw a real change in my skin. I wasn't breaking out as often, my skin was softer, and I could see acne scars fading. Alaffia's black soap is THE BEST because of the simple, gentle ingredients. I have super sensitive skin, so the simpler the product, the better. This leaves your skin so soft and clean and never feels like I'm stripping anything off. The amazing peppermint scent is an added bonus. Please don't ever change the formula!!! I rely on it so much to keep my skin clear!!!! Love this product so much! If you have sensitive skin and can't find something that works, this is it.
