Alaffia's Extra Strength Authentic African Black Soap contains extra shea butter and palm oil† for luxurious, deep cleansing and moisturizing. In West Africa, black soap is known by its Yoruba name, Osse Dudu. Dudu means the color "black," which comes from extensive cooking of the soap to the point of charcoal. Many cultures in West Africa use charcoal to detoxify and purify the skin. No chemical preservatives, color enhancers, or synthetic fragrances are used.
Apply a small amount into hand, lather, and apply to body with water for gentle cleansing. Suitable as a facial cleanser, body wash, shampoo, hand soap, and shaving soap.
