Product Description: What is African Black Soap?
In West Africa, authentic black soap is known by its Yoruba name, Osse DuDu. "Dudu" means the color of black, which comes from the extensive "cooking" of the soap to the point of charcoal. Many cultures in West Africa use charcoal to detoxify the skin, and this is an integral aspect of our true African black soap.

Furthermore, our authentic black soap is made from a centuries old recipe of handcrafted shea butter and indigenous West African palm kernel oil. Saponification is provided by adding ashes to the hot oils, then cooking the soap for six hours. The final step is to dry and cure the soap in the sun for three weeks.

The extensive cooking and curing process make authentic African black soap mild and gentle, and it’s the major reason for its great popularity rise in Africa. The second reason is this soap's versatility. In Togo, our black soap is an "all in one: option for cleaning, and is ideal for faces and babes, shaving, shampooing, and as a general hand & body wash. Scented with a clarifying blend of citrus essential oils.
