Product Description

For centuries Ghanaians have used African Black Soap, as it has been known to help to relieve acne, oily skin, clear blemishes, and various other skin issues. It is also known to help soothe skin irritations and conditions such as eczema, rosacea, and psoriasis. African Black Soap is excellent for removing makeup, dirt, and oil while leaving the skin clean with a fresh, healthy glow. Hand-pressed by the village women of Ghana, Africa, this 100% all natural soap contains no scents, preservatives, or chemicals.

SUGGESTED USES

African Black Soap is fantastic for showering, bathing, washing the hair, face and feet and is suited for all skin types. Due to its natural strength, if you have sensitive skin it is advised to use this soap sparingly. We do not recommend direct use of African Black Soap on the skin in its pure and concentrated form. Therefore, we suggest lathering and diluting it into a washcloth or sponge before use on the skin.

STORAGE TIPS

Due to the high natural glycerin content, African Black Soap should not be exposed to excess water. Its natural glycerin-rich content absorbs moisture from the air and becomes soft if it is not stored properly in a cool, dry place or in a sealed polythene bag.  

PRODUCTION PROCESS:

SUN DRYING PROCESS

The skin of the cocoa pod is sun-dried to a very specific texture and then roasted in a clay-like oven. During this tedious drying process, the heat is kept at a constant temperature to maintain a particular fragrance, color, and texture of the dried cocoa pod.

ROASTING OF THE COCOA POD

The cocoa pods are then roasted; the roasting process determines the end result color of the African Black Soap. The longer the roasting process, the darker the black soap. 

MIXING OF THE COCOA POD WITH PALM KERNEL OIL

After the roasting process, the cocoa pod is mixed with pure, unrefined, natural palm kernel oil. This process leads to the formation of the soap. No scents, preservatives, chemicals, color enhancers, dye, charcoal, or fragrances are added during this mixing process.

THE PACKAGING PROCESS

The African Black Soap is then poured into molding blocks and heat-sealed.

Our traditional African Black Soap produces a thick, soft lather due to our unique and quality controlled production process. It leaves your skin incredibly supple, softly moisturized and with a natural earthy scent. 

FAIR TRADE

Following the strict guidelines of Fair Trade, the manufacturer of our African Black Soap pays higher prices for this product, which provides the women in the Northern Region of Ghana with interest-free loans, credit facilities, packaging training, labeling, and quality control. Therefore, a higher price for their quality processed African Black Soap is justified. 

When you purchase our Fair Trade African Black Soap, you are enabling the Tamale and Wa women that process our product to live with dignity and invest in their families, communities, and the environment. 

Coastal Scents, through Project Ghana, is very proud to produce these natural products and share in a special partnership to better the lives of the women and families of Ghana. When you shop our Project Ghana products, you can feel confident that you are contributing to the livelihood and betterment of the Ghanaian village women and their families.

I was shorted on my order

I really like the black soap, and have ordered it from this site several times before. For Black Friday, however, I ordered 10 of the 16-oz bars of black soap, but when I received my package, they were all 15-oz bars. I wrote the company to issue a refund, and I'm waiting to receive a response. If I don't hear back soon, I'll contact my credit card company to dispute the charge.

Improved my acne

I have very oily skin. I use this soap on my face twice a day and it doesn't dry out my face. I've been using this soap for about a month now in addition to a moisturizer with AHA at night. My dark marks have faded and I no longer get the deep under the skin painful pimples. This soap works better than the Nuetrogena acne washes and the Cetrophil cleansers that I used to use. Unlike these cleansers, the black soap is excellent for removing makeup too. I live this soap.
