Black Soap: Always Bet on Black

Discover one of Africa's gifts- black soap!

A few months ago I posted about all the benefits of shea butter.  It’s one of my favorite natural moisturizers. At that same music festival where I bought the shea butter, I also found another miracle product that I have been using religiously for months now. Just what is this substance? Well it comes in a big block, it foams very well, and it’s black! It’s African Black Soap!

Where Does Black Soap Originate From?

Maybe you’ve heard of it but never really knew what it can do. When I am in the shower, I simply scrape off a little piece and rub between my hands. The result is a fabulous foam. I use it on my face and it cleanses so well. It also great to use in areas where you sweat as it kills odor causing bacteria.  African black soap originates from West Africa, where palm and palm kernel oil are combined. The black color comes from the extraction process of blending them together.

What can African Black Soap do for your skin?

It has so many benefits, such as:

-relieves acne and removes blemishes
-prevents rashes, itching, or dry skin from developing
-rejuvenates skin, leaving your body fresh and clean
-clears up pimples, rashes, eczema, fungus, ringworm, and body odor

Ever since I started using this soap, I have found my skin to be cleaner and clearer…because even at the age of 34, I still develop the occasional blemish. This soap is good for all ages. If you decide to purchase African Black Soap, just make sure it is 100% natural. Target sells a variety of African Black soap mixed with other ingredients, which I have not tried yet. I also use soaps made by Sundial a.k.a.Nubian Heritage. They come in other varieties as well black soap and are available at They are very affordable at around $2.26 a bar. I’ve also found a body wash and body scrub in addition to the bar soap at

    Haven’t actually tried this out, but if Wesley Snipes suggests it, I am game ;). In all seriousness, at that price it is definitely worth trying it out. Thanks!
