      What is African Black Soap?
      In West Africa, authentic black soap is known by its Yoruba name, Ossé Dudu. "Dudu" is the name for the color black, which comes from the extensive "cooking" of the soap - to the point of charcoal. Many cultures in West Africa believe that charcoal detoxifies and purifies the skin, and therefore this is an integral aspect of true African black soap.
      Furthermore, authentic black soap is made following centuries old recipes of indigenous West African butter and oils, such as shea butter and palm kernel oil from native African oil palms. The saponification is provided by adding ashes to the hot oils, then cooking the soap for six hours. The final step is to dry and cure the soap in the sun for three weeks.
      The extensive cooking and curing process makes authentic African black soap mild and gentle, and is the major reason for its great popularity rise in America. The second important reason is this soap's versatility. In Togo, black soap is one-size-fits all option for cleaning, and is ideal for faces and babies, shaving, shampooing, and as a general hand & body wash. Scented with pure essential oils.
      Instructions for use
