Authentic African Black Soap-Tangerine Citrus

16.00 Ounces

Product Description

Alaffia’s Authentic African Black Soap is made from a centuries-old recipe of handcrafted shea butter and West African palm oil†. Black soap is known by its Yoruba name, Ossé Dudu. Dudu means “black,” which comes from extensive cooking of the soap to the point of charcoal. Many cultures in West Africa use charcoal to detoxify and purify the skin.

Face Cleanser: Gently massage over skin. Rinse clean and pat dry. Follow with the Alaffia face cream of your choice.
Body Wash: Apply generously, working into a rich lather. Rinse thoroughly.
Shaving Soap: Apply and lather evenly with wet hands. Shave and rinse.
Be Creative: Tell us how you use it.

For external use only.

Ingredients: Ocimum canum (African Mint) Aqueous Extract, Lauryl Glucoside, Saponified Butyrospermum parkii (Shea) Butter* and Elaeis guineensis (Palm Kernel) Oil*†, Citrus sinensis (Sweet Orange) Oil, Citrus tangerina (Tangerine) Oil, Cymbopogon citratus (Lemongrass) Oil, Litsea cubeba (Litsea) Oil.

  1. LOVE THE SMELL 5 Star Review

    Posted by on May 4th 2018

    This is my favorite scent of black soap. So refreshing. As with all Alaffia products, the scent isn't too overwelming since it's not synthetic which I really appreciate.

  3. Nature Secrets Found! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on Nov 8th 2017

    This beautiful versatile natural tangerine citrus black soap is absolutely lucious and works for all that it is advertised for and is naturally refreshing , clean and pure. In addition to being natural and pure It warms me to use a product that helps a community in need, to progress and gain independence using their talents and sustainable gifts that Mother Nature had given them access to . It's a very small contribution on my part ,but it gives me daily affirmation to participate in their success.

  6. ALL FOR ONE AND ONE FOR ALL! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on Sep 13th 2017

    This multi functional, multi purpose miracle product is great for the consumer on a budget!

    Face to toe Body wash, hand soap, shaving needs in one....luv it! Even use this for a cuticles soak.

    Must have product....have several of these in different bathrooms in my home.
    Our family uses around 15 different Alaffia products from the face products (Neem Tumeric), deodorants, shower products (Coconut Reisi) and Body Lotions (Alaffia EveryDay Shea).

    The products do what they are suppose to do and is why we keep using. Also luv how every product sale has a percentage that goes to impoverished communities in Togo. And they are fair trade! Fair Trade for real.

    Every time I uses these products I do good for myself and do good for someone else.

    Posted by on Nov 27th 2016

    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.

  9. 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!

  10. Good Choice 5 Star Review
