What can you use our Organic Black Soap for?
Removal of cosmetics: Our Fairly Traded Organic Black Soap is a wonderful alternative to expensive products that rely on chemical additives and foaming agents to remove your make-up. Our soap will even work on waterproof cosmetics.
Cleansing: Our Black Soap foams into a rich lather with fine bubbles that penetrate the skin to remove any dirt and oil that if left will clog your pores. The lather cleanses while enriching the skin with essential vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants.
Gentle Exfoliation: Our Fairly Traded Organic Black Soap delivers a deep cleansing experience that exfoliates dead skin cells to reveal radiant, clean, fresh and healthy skin. Our product provides a deep cleansing exfoliate but it is gentle enough to use on your face while restoring moisture balance and shine. Leave the lather on your face or body for just a couple of minutes and then rinse with plenty of water. Repeat a couple of times a week and watch your skin take on a radiant youthful glow.
Shaving: Our Fairly Traded Organic Black Soap is fabulous for shaving. Simply apply to your skin to create a rich foamy lather and then shave for a really smooth finish. Our product is suitable for men and women alike.

NOTE - Check it REALLY is Black Soap
When purchasing Authentic Ghanaian Black Soap make sure the soap is from western Africa and not made in the United States or Europe. Soaps from these countries are mass-produced and are not Authentic Ghanaian Black Soap and probably have artificial ingredients added to them to give the dark colouring.
