Black soap contains many vitamins and minerals that are beneficial for both skin and hair, which includes:
Vitamin A – helps to control oily skin by inhibiting the sebaceous glands that produce this oil; promotes cell turnover for healthier-looking skin
Vitamin E – an antioxidant that helps to fight free radicals to keep skin youthful and radiant; repairs damage to hair follicles and reduces inflammation to promote healthy hair growth
Iron – gives skin that healthy glow by increasing oxygen circulation in the blood; helps to reduce dark marks and dark circles; helps to bring oxygen and other nutrients to the scalp
Natural fats – the many oils in black soap help to moisturize skin and hair and prevent premature wrinkling of skin
Cinnamic acid – a compound found in the shea butter in black soap that helps with UV protection for skin and hair
Natural, organic skin cleanser
By using 100% pure black soap made in West Africa, you can rest assured that you’re treating your skin to organic and chemical-free forms of skincare and stepping away from the use of chemicals that may irritate, damage or cause an allergic reaction on your skin. Black soap is the perfect choice for individuals who prefer holistic and all-natural ways of living.
Gently cleanses skin
When used correctly, African black soap is not harsh on skin. It is a much gentler cleanser than many commercial face/body washes sold on the market today that may cause itching and redness when used. Because of this, it is ideal for those with sensitive skin or with skin conditions that are easily irritated.
Deep, powerful cleansing without stripping
Skin’s natural oils are essential to keeping the face and body moisturized and elastic. The antifungal and antibacterial properties in black soap allow for a deep cleansing of the skin’s pores, but due to its high oil and fat content, it does not strip skin of its natural oils like other soaps or face washes.
Acts as a great alternative to commercial shampoos for any hair type
Commercial shampoos strip hair and often leave it feeling dry and straw-like. Black soap, on the other hand, provides the type of cleansing that’s best for hair: making it clean while allowing it to retain its natural oils. This is especially beneficial to curly or kinky hair, as retaining natural oils is more difficult for textured hair.
Can help to treat and reduce acne
African black soap’s antibacterial properties help to fight bacteria that may cause acne on the face, chest or even back. It also inhibits acne by reducing the oiliness of the skin.
Black soap possesses exfoliating qualities due to its ability to promote cell turnover. In addition, this ability to remove dead skin cells also comes from the grainy texture of the soap, which comes from the ash that forms its base. This grainy surface is abrasive, so it helps to manually remove dead skin cells from the face and body.
Can help to fade skin discoloration
The iron in African black soap helps to fade dark marks and skin discoloration on the face and body, giving you a more even, healthy-looking skin tone.
Helps to ease various skin conditions
African black soap has been used to reduce the itching and burning associated with skin conditions such as eczema and psoriasis due to the natural fats present in the soap.
Prevents premature aging
The antioxidants in the vitamin E that is found in black soap help to prevent free radicals from affecting your skin. Vitamin E also helps to keep skin elastic and youthful, keeping wrinkles and sagging at bay.
Reduces irritation and inflammation of skin
Rashes and other minor skin irritations can also be relieved using African black soap.
Helps with the healing of wounds
The iron in black soap works to improve blood circulation, bringing more oxygen to the surface of your skin to help with skin repair and bacterial defense for the exposed wound. This prevents infection and helps the wound heal more quickly without becoming infected.
Can soothe razor bumps
Razor bumps are a pesky side effect of shaving, but vitamin E’s ability to help skin looking radiant helps to diminish the appearance of razor bumps caused by shaving, while vitamin A assists in cell turnover to produce new, healthy skin cells.
