In Africa, black soap is an age old traditional soap, well known for keeping skin beautiful but more so for healing of various skin problems. Women in Ghana have been involved in the making of black soap for many years. Using various herbs and healing remedies such as plantain leaves and cocoa pods, African women have worked their black soap magic. “Alata samina” is the popular name of black soap in Ghana.It is used to relieve acne, and to clear blemishes. It is also known to help soothe skin irritations and conditions such as eczema, and psoriasis. African Black Soap is excellent for removing makeup, dirt, and oil while giving the skin a beautiful glow.
Black soap has evolved to a point where women enterpreneurs are developing various blends and formulations of black soap to include ingredients such as Shea Butter and Papaya. Black soap can be quite strong so if you have sensitive skin it is recommended to dilute it a little in a soft towel or sponge.
