This one-size-fits-all soap is being called a “holy grail” product for producing great results for all skin types. Authentic African black soap is handmade from plant-based ingredients in West Africa. The soap has been used by women in Africa for years and now gains popularity in the West.


One of the best things about the soap is it’s all-natural. Some of the ingredients include coconut oil, palm oil, shea butter and plantain peels. It works as a regular soap and can be used on any part of the body. The shea butter and other moisturizers do not strip oils from the skin.


It helps balance oil production, moisturize skin and fights acne. It can be purchased as a large block or in a more traditional soap size. This is perfect to bring along for traveling because it’s a one-stop shop. With this soap, there’s no need to bring tons of beauty products that will use up space in luggage.


In addition to all of its amazing benefits, African black soap can be used as a clarifying scalp treatment. Dilute the soap with water and massage it into your scalp. After waiting about 10 minutes, rinse it out and any product build-up will be gone.


The soap can be ordered online through Amazon. Just be careful to buy authentic black soap. There is also a good version of it sold through Shea Moisture.
