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
