Our Black Label Authentic Black Soap is enriched with moisturizing African wild honey, protective melon, purifying neem, rejuvenating baobab, and nourishing papaya.
In West Africa, authentic black soap is known by its Yoruba name, Ossé Dudu. Dudu means the color "black," which comes from extensive cooking of the soap to the point of charcoal. Many cultures in West Africa use charcoal to detoxify & purify the skin. This is an integral aspect of our true African black soap. Alafﬁa’s Authentic Black Soap is made from a centuries-old recipe of handcrafted shea butter and West African palm kernel oil. Saponiﬁcation is provided by adding ashes to the hot oils, then cooking the soap for six hours. The last step is drying and curing the soap in the sun for three weeks, resulting in a gentle hand & body wash.
