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. *Certified Fair for Life-Social & Fair Trade by IMO

  1. The only soap I will ever use! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on Mar 22nd 2016

    We love this soap so much! We're able to use this on our sensitive skin without any problems. My husband and I also use it for shaving. It has a really nice glide. My skin feels clean, soft and hydrated. My boys and husband also use it to wash their hair. Couldn't ask for a better product. We love the simple ingredients and no harsh chemicals!
