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 for all ages.

Ingredients: Ocimum canum (African Mint) Aqueous Extract, Saponified Butyrospermum parkii (Shea)Butter* and Elaeis guineensis (Palm Kernel) Oil*, Lauryl Glucoside, Citrus dulcis (Orange) Oil, Citrus tangerina (Tangerine) Oil, Cymbopogon citratus (Lemongrass) Oil, Litsea cubeba (Litsea) Oil. *Certified Fair Trade by IMO

  2. Best soap ever! 5 Star Review

    I love this African black soap so much! Absolutely natural with no artificial stuff. The tangerine citrus scent is so lovely. I use it on my hair and my skin and I've been very pleased with the result. It's the only soap I use now.

  3. Skin Softening! 4 Star Review

    Posted by on May 4th 2016

    This soap smells wonderful. The citrus smell lifts and energizes. I gave it 4 stars because it takes a bit more of the product to produce a really good lather, but other than that, it's great!
