Handmade African Black Soap
Black soap has been used in West Africa for centuries. The recipes and methods differ by region, but it is typically made from carefully dried and roasted plantain leaf ashes hand-stirred with palm oil and shea butter and then allowed to cure for several weeks.
Shea Butter African Black Soap Savanna Spice from Alaffia is a richly moisturizing soap gentle enough for babies or people with sensitive skin. Made by hand from Certified Fair Trade unrefined shea butter, virgin palm kernel oil and potash from the ashes of plantain leaves and Agow tree bark.
