Product Description

Alaffia’s Authentic African Black Soap is likened to the home remedies of Togolese mamans. It’s made from a centuries-old ​recipe of handcrafted fair trade and certified organic unrefined, "raw" shea butter and Orangutan-safe West African ​palm oil†, and enhanced with invigorating peppermint oil. Saponification is reached by adding potash (made from plantains and leaves) to the hot oils, ​and then cooking it for six hours. The last step is curing the soap in the sun ​for three weeks, resulting in a gentle and effective cleanser that clarifies and softens skin. Suitable for any skin type, even the most sensitive. Sulfate-free.

† Our natural West African palm oil is grown and harvested by small-scale farmers in the Maritime region of Togo, from the town of Tsevie to Kpalime. The oil is extracted by our Fair Trade cooperative in Sokodé using traditional methods. When palm oil is grown as an industrial plantation crop, such as in Indonesia and Malaysia on newly cleared rain forests or peat-swamp forests rather than on already degraded land or disused agricultural land, it can contribute to the endangerment of animals such as the Orangutans. However, this is not the case with the small farms that we receive our palm oil from in Africa. Oil palms are native to West Africa and have been grown as part of multi-cropped sustainable small farms for centuries. Furthermore, it is important to point out that Orangutans do not exist at all in Africa.

Best facial soap for sensitive skin!! Love at first pump!

I used to purchase other black soaps from a different company, but they never did what I wanted them to do. A friend gave me Alaffia's Peppermint Black Soap as a gift and I knew I found a winner from the first use. I used it for about a month and saw a real change in my skin. I wasn't breaking out as often, my skin was softer, and I could see acne scars fading. Alaffia's black soap is THE BEST because of the simple, gentle ingredients. I have super sensitive skin, so the simpler the product, the better. This leaves your skin so soft and clean and never feels like I'm stripping anything off. The amazing peppermint scent is an added bonus. Please don't ever change the formula!!! I rely on it so much to keep my skin clear!!!! Love this product so much! If you have sensitive skin and can't find something that works, this is it.
