African Black Soap is a soap truly unique ~ and the secrets of her magic lie within the lye. Originating from West Africa, authentic Black Soap uses a special kind of lye, known as potash, to transform oil into soap. Potash is made from charred plant material that is local & abundant in the region; while recipes vary based on what's available, the ash usually contains botanical waste like Cacao pods, Plantain peels, Coconut husks & Bamboo shoots.

The signature brown & earthy-scented bar soap yielded from potash & regional oils is exceptionally gentle, and has been beloved there for generations due to its ability to nurture a delicate complexion and repair problematic skin. For this elixir, we sourced Fair Trade African Black Soap from Ghana that was crafted with Cacao pod potash, raw Shea butter & Coconut oil.

Lasts forever!

I've been using this cleanser for months and my skin has never been clearer. I'd never tried anything with african black soap before and love it! I originally thought the price was high but then I realized how long it lasts since you only need a few drops at a time. Pretty sure this will last me all year.

My fav face wash

I love how earthy this face wash smells, and how squeaky clean it leaves my face. Love!

My new favorite cleanser

This cleanser is wonderful! It is gentle yet effective. It smells natural and a little goes a long way. I use a quarter size amount in the palm of my hand which cleans my face and neck easily. I have very sensitive skin and have not had any problems using this cleanser every night.

Great for sensitive skin!

This cleanser paired with the Solar Day Glo Potion is an amazing duo.

I have eczema on my scalp line and have been using this to wash my face and also my scalp line. It has been amazing in addition to my natural shampoo bar to calm down the redness from my eczema. My skin feels great and I’ve had less breakouts in the last 3 weeks than normal.

Great for travel as you don’t need a lot to wash your face. Just a few drops at a time!

LITERALLY the best

Nothing comes close to this cleanser.

I've been using Cetaphil and CeraVe soaps, as per my dermatologist's recommendation, for years. Other higher end brands as well, at times.
I don't use them anymore.

This is the best cleanser I've ever used, bar none.

I use it on my face and neck primarily. I'm addicted.
My skin is smooth, supple, clean, hydrated, never dried out.
I just went on vacation and forgot my bottle at home and was seriously SAD about it.
My skin was too.

This is a forever staple in my life.
