In West Africa, authentic black soap is known by its Yoruba name, Osse Dudu. Dudu means the color black, which comes from the extensive cooking of soap to the point of charcoal. Many cultures in West Africa use charcoal to detoxify and purify the skin, and this is an integral aspect of the true African black soap. Furthermore, the authentic black soap is made from a centuries old recipe of handcrafted shea butter and indigenous West African palm kernel oil. Saponification is provided by adding ashes to the hot oils, then cooking the soap for six hours. The final step is to dry and cure the soap in the sun for three weeks. The extensive cooking and curing process makes authentic African black soap mild and gentle, and is the major reason for its great popularity rise in America. The second important reason is this soap's versatility. In Togo, the black soap is an all in one option for cleaning, and is ideal for faces and babies, shaving, shampooing, and as a general hand & body wash. Scented with a clarifying blend of citrus essential oils.

Hands down favorite soap!
I discovered this by accident while looking for something else and I'm so glad I did! During pregnancy I'm extremely sensitive to smells and this really nice, mild, lemongrass scent is clean and fresh but not overpowering. It has made my skin so happy, it never feels dry anymore, and I love having a product I can use on my body and face and not worry if my children get into it.

Great Product ...
I truly enjoyed this product and it lasted for months! I use it to cleanse my face, wash my hair and body. It's safe for babies and children.One Thing...I wished it lathered a little more. I think something I'm getting over with using natural soaps it that they won't always lather like the synthetic soaps. it held up well and honestly it's healthier for me and my family...so the excess bubbles...
