HOW SHOULD I USE AFRICAN BLACK SOAP FOR MY SKIN TYPE?
For some individuals the raw black soap dries out the skin. Other black soap that includes shea butter, or another moisturizing ingredient in the formula will probably be better for dry skin types.
If it’s drying out your skin, try using less. A little goes a long way and using too much soap will definitely be drying to already parched skin. If you have sensitive and/or dry skin start out by using it only once a day.
African black soap is great for oily and acne prone skin. It’s efficient for deep pore cleansing because of its natural exfoliating qualities. For some oily skin types it seems to keep the skin hydrated without increasing oil.
Even if you have oily skin you should moisturize afterwards with a non-comedogenic lotion or oil like sweet almond oil and virgin coconut oil.
CLEANSING WITH AFRICAN BLACK SOAP
If you are using raw African black soap, take the soap apart and knead it into a ball to make sure there aren’t any jagged edges, and rub between hands to work into a lather. If you apply the soap directly to the skin, do so gently, because there could still be particles that can tear the skin.
Washing and rinsing with cool water can help reduce the possibility of stinging and redness. Avoid getting the soap in the eyes. If you have sensitive or very reactive skin, don’t leave the soap on the skin for a long period of time.
You could experience tingling or a burning sensation in acne areas, open sores and cuts. If your skin feels squeaky clean afterwards, it means the skin is too dry. Try reducing the amount of soap that you use. A very small amount (the size of a marble) can cleanse the face and neck.
How Is African Black Soap Made?
African Black Soap’s light brown colour comes from its ingredients: the ash of palm bark and the plantain leaves and bark are first of all carefully sun dried, then gently roasted at an even temperature. Hydrating Shea Butter, Palm kernel oil and water are then stirred into the healing mixture; and then the soap is left to cure. Supermelanin African black soap is hand made in West Africa, where different women-led communities create magical secret blends to create the African Black Soap we know and love.
