What is Black Soap?
Black soap goes by a number of different names including African black soap, Anago Soap, Alata Simena, Ose Dudu, Duchi, Alata Soap, and Anago Samina. Traditionally, black soap is made by ash from the leaves and bark of local plants. Shea tree bark, plantain, palm leaves, and cocoa pods are sun dried, then put in a kettle to be roasted. To ensure proper color, texture, and smell, the temperature must be kept even and constant. Palm oil, coconut oil, Shea butter, cocoa pod powder, other oils, and water are added. The mixture must then be stirred for at least a day, then set and cured for two weeks.

The first thing I noticed about this soap is the pure ingredients list.
Adding cacao pod ash and leaving out fillers and fragrances makes this soap ideal for anyone dealing with skin allergies, sensitive skin, and those who desire to maintain a clear complexion and healthy skin conditions.
I really like that I am able to pull from the tub only what I need for my next couple showers.
This keeps the delicate soap lasting longer as only what is used to make soapy suds melts away.
After using this soap for a few weeks I’ve noticed my skin is sustaining a quenched sensation I have yet to experience with any other soap.
Thank you Ashanti Naturals for creating another amazing self care product! 🌈
