Stacey's Naturals African Black Soap ~ Lemongrass
Unrefined raw African black soap is natural and one of the healthiest yet unheard of soaps you will find. This handmade premium black soap contains more benefits for healthy skin than you can imagine. Raw African black soap is made by hand from dried plantain skins, palm leaves, cocoa pod powder, and kernel oil for an all-natural cleansing process.
As with any soap, the primary benefit of using black soap is cleansing. Black soap can also be used to remove makeup. Black soap works on most skin types but be cautious when using on sensitive skin.
African black soap can be applied to the hair as a cleanser. It contains no sodium lauryl sulfate, a lathering agent that strips the hair of its natural oils. Because black soap is rich in glycerin, it leaves hair clean, healthy and light when used as a shampoo.
To use Black Soap for hair: wet your hair, rub black soap in your hands until it lathers, massage scalp and rinse. It is not recommended to rub the soap directly onto your hair but scalp.
Black soap can help reduce acne outbreaks by reducing oiliness and killing bacteria which cause acne. Some proponents say using black soap reduces the appearance of acne scars.
African black soap can be used to treat and prevent dandruff. The anti-fungal and anti-bacterial properties contained in African black soap are beneficial for prohibiting bacterial growth on the scalp and relieving minor scalp irritation. If you are experiencing excessive dandruff or itching of the scalp, please contact a Trichologist, a professional skilled in treating scalp disorders.
Users of black soap report that it leaves their skin soothed, reducing irritation from rashes and skin conditions such as eczema and psoriasis. The ashes used in black soap have been used as a traditional folk treatment for skin irritation. Some black soap formulas contain honey, also known for its healing properties.
The ash in African black soap provides gentle exfoliation. This gentle exfoliation may help reduce the appearance of fine lines, discolorations, wrinkles, and reduce razor bumps.
African black soap can be converted into a liquid form when it is added to water for several hours. Add small pieces of the African black soap to a disposable container; cover them with water and leave them overnight. You can use the liquid form as you would the solid form.
We recommend cutting a piece off and storing the unused piece in a cool dry area either in a zip lock bag or Tupperware. Black soap has natural glycerin so it will naturally absorb moisture from the air and become darker in color and softer in texture when left exposed.
To store Black Soap in the shower after showing or bathing, do not leave black soap in water. If storing in a soap dish, make sure the soap dish is well drained. If storing black soap on a surface, make sure surface does not have a puddle of water.
