Ingredients: Coconut Oil, Shea Butter, and Cocoa Pod Ash
Everyone should experience authentic African Black Soap imported from Ghana!
In West Africa, and especially Ghana, black soap is often made by women and fair-traded. The women use secret family or community recipes that have been handed down for generations. First they sun-dry the plant matter, such as plantain skins, palm tree leaves, cocoa pods, and shea tree bark, and burn it to ash. Next they add water and various oils and fats, such as coconut oil, palm oil, and shea butter, cook the mixture until it solidifies, and hand-stir it for at least 24 hours. They then scoop out the soap and let it “cure”.
