African black soap has a long history that dates back to ancient West Africa, where it was originally made by women using local ingredients such as plantain skins, palm leaves, cocoa pods and shea butter. These ingredients were roasted and then mixed with water and oils, like palm oil or coconut oil, to create a paste-like mixture. This mixture was then left to cure for several weeks before it was ready to use.

African black soap was used as a cleanser, and considered a valuable commodity and important part of traditional medicine in West Africa, treating a variety of skin conditions including eczema, psoriasis, and acne. The soap was believed to have antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties that could help to soothe and heal the skin.

Over time, African black soap became more widely known outside of West Africa, and today it is sold and used around the world. While the traditional methods of making African black soap have been passed down through generations, modern manufacturing techniques have also been developed to produce the soap on a larger scale.

Despite its growing popularity, African black soap is still considered to be an important part of West African culture and tradition, and it remains a cherished and valuable product in many communities.


African black soap is beneficial for a variety of skin types, including dry, oily, and sensitive skin. It is known for its deep cleansing and exfoliating properties, which remove dead skin cells and impurities from the skin. Additionally, African black soap is rich in vitamins and minerals that nourish and moisturize the skin.

African black soap is also free from many of the harsh chemicals that are commonly found in commercial soaps, making it a popular choice for those with sensitive skin or those looking for a more natural alternative.
