Black soap contains no chemicals, preservatives, colour enhancers or fragrance. The black colour of the soap is developed as a result of the lye that is used in the saponification process, it is made from the ash of banana leaves and bark from local trees so It is completely free from black dyes and charcoal.

Black soap has a very mild soapy scent and an unbelievably creamy lather, which leaves your skin moisturised and soft. It is one of the healthiest soaps for the skin due to the purity and simplicity of the ingredients. We adore this versatile soap! It is one of the few products I’m happy to use on my son’s skin. It’s suitable for hair washing and shaving too, it leaves the skin smooth and soft.

It also has a reputation for moisturising the skin and is believed to combat rashes, dry and eczema prone skin. In Togo, black soap is the only soap used by mothers to wash their newborn babies, as its purity makes it gentle and non-drying for their sensitive skin. Black Soap is recommended for young and old, or anyone with tender skin.

Free from preservatives, chemicals, colours and fragrances. This soft soap absorbs water readily so is best kept in a soap dish.
