Shopping for body soap can often be an overwhelming task. From liquid soap to body wash, micro-beads to deep cleansers, supermarkets and drug stores have literally hundreds of soap choices. Yet, for those looking to steer away from name brands and find a natural soap that is soft on the skin, look no further than African black soap.
African black soap was invented in Ghana and has been used for hundreds of years in western Africa. The main ingredient in African black soap is plantain skin, a popular fruit grown in Africa and South America that is rich in vitamins A and E, as well as iron. Dried out, roasted plantain skin is mixed with palm oil, palm kernel, and water, which is than stirred for days to create soap. Still today in Africa, local women are designated to stir the mixture for days at a time to make the soap.
Known in Africa as dudu osun, African black soap can be used to clean your body, face, and hair. Some of the other benefits of using African black soap rather than a typical bar of soap include:

• It helps relieve rashes and irritated skin.
• African black soap acts as both a shampoo and conditioner, leaving hair clean, silky and smooth.
• It acts as a natural skin softener for rough, oily skin.
• African black soap is a deep cleansing face wash. Some experts claim that it helps clear acne and blemishes, as African black soap cleans deep into pours without drying out the skin.
• Some users claim that African black soap helps eliminate wrinkles and other facial lines.
Many companies here in the United States claim to manufacture and sell authentic African black soap. While some of these products are legitimate, when searching for this natural, organic soap, find a place that sells genuine African black soap that is made and shipped directly from western Africa.
