Product Description

Alaffia’s Extra Strength Authentic African Black Soap contains extra shea butter and palm oil† for luxurious, deep cleansing and moisturizing. In West Africa, 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 and purify the skin. No chemical preservatives, color enhancers, or synthetic fragrances are used. 

Ingredients: Water, Saponified Butyrospermum parkii (Shea) Butter* and Elaeis guineensis (Palm Kernel) Oil*†.

*Fair for Life Fair Trade certified ingredient †ORANGUTAN SAFE

  1. Happy Mom Happy Pooch 5 Star Review

    Posted by on Dec 12th 2017

    I have never cut myself shaving when I use African Black Soap! Also, it leaves my legs smooth so I do not have to use lotion afterwards! Soap that is a time saver too! I have to admit that my pampered pooch (a tiny, spoiled Yorkie) gets washed with African Black Soap and I do not have to put conditioner on her because her hair (not fur) comes out soft and untangled.

  2. It Saves My Skin! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on Dec 27th 2016

    I am SO grateful for this product! In only a couple short weeks, it has cleared up about 85% of my skin problems! At first I was extremely worried about using it on my face because I have serious, painful acne-prone skin. I couldn't believe that a reasonably affordable product would not only (a) NOT aggravate the problems, but (b) make such an improvement in such a short time! I put my faith in this product on the recommendation of a friend, and I'm excited to say she was right about how helpful this product is. To be able to support Alaffia's Empowerment Projects, too, by purchasing such as quality product makes me a new loyal customer!
