African black soap is a traditionally all-natural soap made in West Africa. Authentic recipes used palm kernel oil and the filtrate of burnt cocoa pod ash.
So what are the benefits?!
Because it’s all natural, it’s safe for people with sensitive skin and those who are allergic to certain additives. African Black Soap is a good alternative for modern soaps.
African black soap has properties that help remove bacteria from the skin.
One study in the Journal of Microbiology and Biotechnology Research compared African black soap with medicated soaps. The study looked at how effective black soap was at stopping bacteria such as:
- Staphylococcus aureus
- Staphylococcus epidermidis
- Bacillus spp.
- Escherichia coli
- Corynebacterium spp.
African Black soap was more effective at removing and reducing certain bacteria than the medicated soaps.
This soap may also help with acne and wrinkles.
And let’s not forget dark spots aka hyperpigmentation! Yes it helps with that also!
