Raw black soap, also called African Black Soap, is a natural cleanser used to treat a wide range of skin problems, and is especially good for those with sensitive skin, oily skin, acne prone skin or aging skin. It will clear the skin and help remove spots and uneven skin tone, and can help relieve skin problems such as psoriasis and eczema.

For the Nerds:
African Raw Black Soap is made in West Africa, typically Ghana, from the ash of locally harvested plants and barks such a plantain, cocoa pods, palm tree leaves, and shea tree bark. The ingredients are sun-dried and roasted, which is how it gets its deep color. Water and oils such as coconut, palm, and shea butter are then added. The soap is then left to sit and cure.
It has natural anti-bacterial, decleansing properties without any chemicals. It is ideal for all skin types and highly recommended for sensitive skin. It naturally treats acne, calms, irritated skin, and a natural liquid microdermabrasion treatment.
Do not rub African Raw Black Soap bar directly onto skin. Because of the natural process of producing the soap there is a small risk of tiny solids that did not completely break down to ash. They can scratch the skin and cause irritation.
For best results, rub the bar onto a cloth or sponge for use. If you prefer not to use a cloth, knead black soap first to make sure no sharp pieces are sticking out.
