How Black Soap is Made:
1 - First, leaves and bark of various trees and plants are burned in a vat or kettle. These may be leaves from banana trees, plantain skins, palm tree leaves, shea tree bark, and/or cocoa pods.
2 - Secondly, water is added to ashes to be filtered. Oils such as coconut oil, shea oil, palm oil, palm kernel oil, and cocoa butter are added to the water to create the soap.
3 - The soap is then hand-stirred by local women for at least a day and then set out to cure for two weeks.
People have tried to re-create African black soap in the west, but it has never been able to truly replicate the authentic product. This is because genuine black soap is created using age-old traditions that are passed down from one generation to the next in smaller villages in Africa .
The most common form of black soap is called Ose Dudu (doudoun), which comes from the Yoruba or Anago languages of Nigeria , Togo , and Benin . Ose Dudu literally means Soap (ose) and Black (dudu).
Not all Black Soaps are Created Equal
As the popularity of black soap and natural soaps increases, some retailers are using the label African black soap. Many are just dyeing soap black, but using none of the key ingredients of true black soap. However, true black soap is from West Africa . Genuine black soap has raw ingredients that give it an earthy smell, and a more delicate texture than typical storebought soaps.
If you are starting to feel differently about the softly scented white ‘cleansing bar’ you have next to your bathroom sink, don’t despair. Natural soaps are becoming more and more widely available and many can repair the damage your skin has experienced over the years.
If you try black soap, don’t be surprised; that muddy-looking water lathering on your face is literally cleaning all the impurities out of your skin from the inside out. The cocoa pod powder gives the soap a black color and hence it will create a ‘muddy’ looking lather when you use it.
If you are ready to see what benefits you can experience, then you can find black soap in some whole food markets, as well as some stores specializing in products from Africa . Black soap can be liquid or solid and we carry both at Mudfarm Organix

Black soap, or African black soap, also known as Alata Samina or Alata Soap originates from West Africa. It has been used for centuries in Ghana. Its methods and secrets have been passed down from generation to generation to keep the soap close to Mother Nature and avoid exploitation and imitation. Many have tried to create their version of Black soap with all kinds of ingredients. Ghana’s Alata soap is the best quality black soap, because it is all ORIGINAL.

Alata Samina or Anago Samina is the term used in the local dialect called Twi to refer to black soap or African Black Soap. Alata or Anago is a reference to the people of the northern region of Ghana, mainly the Hausa tribe. Alata Samina is now used all over Ghana.
African black soap comes from plantain skin. It is a natural source of vitamin A and E and iron. Plantain is a popular food in Africa, South Africa and other parts of the world. They can be found in ethnic or international grocery stores such as Latino, Caribbean for African. It looks like banana but much bigger. It does not taste like banana and has to be cooked before eating. The skin of the plantain is gingerly dried to precise texture under the hot African sun. It is then roasted in a clay oven. The heat must be constant in order to achieve a particular color, texture and fragrance. In some recipes, Cocoa Pod is used instead of Plantain skin. Cocoa pod is the shell of the cocoa fruit. The cocoa beans are used for making chocolate or cocoa butter, among other things.
The next process is very delicate, and if it is not done properly, with the right ingredients, there will be no soap. The roasted plantain skin is mixed with palm oil, palm kernel oil from the soap. The roasting of the plantain skin determines the color of the soap. The longer the plantain skins are roasted, the dark of the soap. African black soap is generations old and has numerous benefits and is not scented. It can be used by anyone who wishes to improve quality of their skin.
