African Blacksoap

80 NOK / In stock.
All natural African Black Soap
Black soap is made from the ash of locally harvested plants and barks such as plantain, cocoa pods, palm tree leaves, and shea tree bark.The plantain skins give the soap Vitamin A & E, and iron. Because the soap has the highest shea butter content of any soap, it purportedly also offers UV protection. 
To use: cut off a small piece of the soap and store the rest in an airtight container. Black soap easily absorbs water and can get too soft if left out in the bathroom, so I find it’s best to just take a small piece at a time.
1. Daily face wash Apply to face and neck, leave on for a few minutes (optional) and then rinse. Use once or twice a day.
2. Body wash Like a regular soap.
3. Shampoo Wet your hair, rub the soap over your scalp and lather well. Rinse with lukewarm water, no need to repeat.
4. Shaving cream: Because the soap lathers so well, it’s great to use as a shaving cream. Use a badger hair brush to work up lather on the soap, or just work up the lather in your hands and apply to areas that you’re going to shave.
5. Deep-cleansing daily face wash.
