Is black soap worth all the hype? You bet. On our skin, it is absolutely magic. African Black Soap aka ABS is absolutely worth all the hype.
While the recipe varies, ABS is handmade from the ashes of cocoa pods, shea tree bark and plaintain leaves and mixed with various soothing and healing oils such as shea butter, cocoa butter, palm oil and coconut oil, creating its deliciously distinct aroma and amazing properties. And don’t let it’s appearance fool you — although dark brown and crumbly in texture, this African-born skin miracle will become a staple in your cleansing routine. And remember, African African Black Soap is NOT BLACK. It looks like fruit cake.
It’s benefits are awesome and severely underrated, so we’re shouting them from the rooftops. Here’s why ABS is so amazing:
It’s suitable for all skin types. Dry, oily or perfectly in between. If you have oily skin, regular use will help remove additional oils from the skin thus preventing the formation of pimples. Absolutely brilliant for teens.
It’s a super cleanser. Well of course, it’s soap (DUH!) . …I mean really really clean. Without dryness. There’s more. The charcoal in ABS can help absorb body odors and bacteria, while its formula is gentle enough for makeup removal.
It’s soothing & healing. This double whammy is perhaps the most notable. If you suffer with rashes or skin conditions such as eczema and psoriasis, the ashes in black soap helps reduce irritation and can even be used by people with sensitive skin. While ABS cannot remove acne, since that is caused by the release of excessive oils within the skin rather than dirt buildup, it can reduce the appearance of acne scars.
It’s a fountain of youth. (Clap clap clap clap) Yes, ABS may help you turn back the hands of time. This gentle exfoliant may help reduce the appearance of fine lines and skin discolorations that indicate the early signs of aging skin. And works beautifully with argan oil and shea butter.
How to use
- For the body and face, it is recommended to rub a sponge on the soap, then use the soaped sponge to clean the face and body. Our plant fibre based Konjac sponges are ideal for this.Allow soap to dry on a well drained soap dish (see our accessories section). When soap becomes too small to use comfortably, wet a new bar of soap and stick them together. You'll never waste soap this way.
