This 100% genuine handcrafted African Black Soap from Shea Terra Organics is a rare soap that originates in remote African villages. You won’t believe the results as you watch dead skin and blemishes vanish before your eyes.
The Legend of the African Black Soap is that at some point in early history humans learned to cleanse their skin with the ashes of plants and fats. This natural form of cleansing agent preceded modern soap-making by thousands of years. Somewhere in West Africa, ancient soap-making was taken further to create what is now known as African Black Soap.
The process begins with harvesting plantain & cacao pods that are made into ash then cooked with local palm oil and shea butter until the material turns black. This blackening process of the ash creates a highly healing product, the African Black Soap that is famed for amazing feats from getting rid of cystic acne to making skin look years younger, leaving behind radiant skin without harsh chemicals.
The Shea Terra African Black Soap bars combine African Black Soap with nourishing organic shea butter, organic coconut cream oil, and organic virgin olive oils and kettle cook them in a modern soap making method to produce the final handcrafted bar, resulting in a very nourishing bar of soap brimming with humectant glycerin.
