What is it?

Our African Black Soap is native to the people of the Yoruba Land. It has gone through several generations being passed down from one generation to another so that its brilliance is not lost. Today we are still able to provide you this miraculous soap in both its original and evolved forms.  Traditional it is used to bathe infants all the way up to the elderly. Yoruba people use the soap to treat and heal various skin ailments and scalp irritations. 

How is it made?

The shaft of the Cocoa pod kernel is ground and roasted until it becomes ash. The ash is then added to water fermented and boiled for up to 5 hours. Once that is done the cocoa ash water combo is filtered and is slowly added to palm kernel oil until it solidifies. The soap that forms from this process is now added to a mortar and the soap is then pounded for hours until it has reached the desired texture and mold. It is then added to a pot and cooked again. This cooked mixture of cocoa ash and palm kernel oil forms the base of African black soap. In summary our soap goes thru the process of being distilled by being boiled three times, a round of pounding and then cooked again for the final product.
