Black soap or also known as African black soap (Dudu osun) is made from the ash of the harvested plants and barks such as shea tree bark. How is the black soap made? First and foremost, the leaves and the bark are left on the sun to dry out. Afterwards they are roasted in a pot or kettle in a certain constant temperature. Why is this important? Well, this is important to ensure the black soap consists of the color, texture and smell as we know it.
The black soap has vitamins A, vitamin E and iron. In addition the black soap offers UV skin protection aside from the other skin care benefits.
The black soap is ideal for people who have skin dryness, rashes, acne breakouts and dark spots among others. The soap itself is really versatile and flexible when it comes to the skin care usage. Some people even use as a shampoo or makeup remover.
