African Black Soap

$ 19.50


African Black Soap (also known as black soap) is a 100% natural soap for cleaning the skin, scalp and hair. Its amazing ingredients and properties not only deeply clean but also replenish vital nutrients which help clear up dry, cracked skin, blemishes, irritations and scalp build-up.

Our African Black Soap is made in Ghana using an authentic recipe which has been passed down for centuries. It contains only 5 completely natural ingredients. A little goes a long way so this 16 oz bar of soap should last a while. We recommend slicing off a piece and storing the rest until you are ready for more.

Weight: 16 oz.

    African Black Soap

    This soap is amazing. I even use it as my shampoo sometimes. It leaves my skin CLEAN feeling, no residue that won't rinse off in the shower. It's great, I'll buy more when I need it.

    Great lather!

    I love this black soap! It’s not crumbly as some are. It’s a pleasant scent with a rich leather. It really gets you squeaky clean…literally squeaky! Please use a well vented soap dish unless you want to make the liquid black soap.

    Lovely Soap

    I love this soap! I've been on a mission to bring my skin and haircare routine as close to 100% natural as possible, and this soap has been a huge step in the right directions! I love the simple ingredients and the lack of aggressive perfumes. Also, the leather this soap provides is absolutely mind-blowing.

    Perfect for the picky man in your life

    Husband loves this soap.


    Our authentic African Black Soap is made by a women coop in Ghana and imported in small batches so it is fresh. This soap is popular for its deep cleaning and nourishing properties and the fact that it is 100% natural with no chemicals or fragrances.

    Authentic Black Soap has a distinctive dark brown color which comes from its ingredients. It is safe for all skin types and particularly beneficial to balancing out oily skin, soothing irritated skin and cleansing sensitive skin.

    For regular use it is best to lather the soap bar and spread onto the skin. You can also use the bar directly on the skin to exfoliate or follow our recipe to make it into a liquid soap.

    How to Use

    Our Black Soap comes in a large 16 oz brick. To use it, cut off a slice, leave the rest in its original packaging or in a sealed container and store in a cool, dry place.

    Use the slice of soap when washing your hands, face or body until it is used up. For normal use, lather in your hands and apply the lather to the body and face. For added exfoliation lightly rub the bar directly against the skin. Or use it as a liquid soap as per the recipe on the description page.

    Once done with the first slice of soap, repeat by cutting off another piece, and continue that way until you have it all used up.
