We know you love our African Black Soap- we've been grateful and proud to present it to you this past decade.

And now, we've desired to honor the tradition of the African women who have, for centuries, embraced the true value of natural elements regarding skin care, by creating for you our Bohemian Translation:

The same original African Black Soap formulation, with added French Green Clay & Charcoal for superior oil absorption, skin cleansing and detoxification and bio-mineral addition. You'll love this new, silky, skin-softening texture, too! And, we've added a fresh essential oil blend that will turn your skin care regime into a spa experience!

(And as a refresher, here's the 411 on African Black Soap!)

African Black Soap (a.k.a. ABS) has been made and used for many centuries by African women who know the value of natural beauty and skin care. This soap is made by burning cocoa pods, mixing the ash with water, shea butter oil, coconut oil, and palm oil, and forming the mixture into a soap mold, leaving it to cure for a bit. The finished result is an amazingly clarifying facial and body soap that helps in the following ways:

  • oiliness in skin
  • dry skin
  • softens rough skin
  • blackheads
  • whiteheads
  • fin lines
  • Another cool note is that ABS is gentle and moisturizing enough that it can be used as a make up remover as well as shampoo.

It truly is an authentically nourishing product.

6 oz bar/ 8 large cubes = about 4 months' supply 

Directions: Use as a facial or body bar. Lather intended area; rinse. If using on face, use Bisous Pour Tous Facial Exfoliant in conjunction with the soap lather for maximum results. Follow with Raven's Balm Gentle Aging Facial Moisturizer to complete a facial treatment.
