Black Soap, or should we say, African Black Soap also known as Alata Samina in Ghana & Ose Dudu in Nigeria has been used for centuries in West Africa as a natural cleanser for the skin. Not to be confused with charcoal soap, this popular plant-based product is made entirely from ingredients found on the African continent including Shea Butter, Coconut Oil and even plantain skin!
African Black Soap is known to deeply cleanse & gently exfoliate skin, without stripping away moisture. It’s a favorite amongst celebrities, including Zendaya, for a flawless fresh face!
