Making African Black soap is a labour of love. The cocoa pods and plantain leaves are burnt to produce an ash which is added to water and filtered.

How do i use it?
Simply moisten the soap between your hands and it should become more compact. Note that if you are using it in your hair, it is important to avoid running the actual soap over your hair. This will cause the hair to get stuck to the soap. Instead, cover your hands with the soap's lather and run the lather manually through your hair. We would advise that you use the liquid version as a shampoo.
Our liquid soaps are not as thick as your standard shampoos as we prefer to stay authentic and sell it as it is. We advise that you use it sparingly. A little goes a long way. Wet you hair as normal and use as you would a normal shampoo.
