African black soap also known as Alata Samina in Twi Ghanaian dialect is an ancient beauty soap which traces its origin in West Africa. This soap is a beauty secret that has been passed down in families for generations.
African women are known for their glowing, flawless, and youthful skin. Often people ask what their secret is, since they live in a sun-drenched environment that can be harsh on the skin. Their secret lies in the use of nature inspired beauty products.
Unlike synthetic soaps, African black soap is handmade of natural plant based ingredients, to keep all its healing properties, and nutrients.
Our African black soap is ethically handmade by traditional methods native to Ghana. The cocoa pod husk which is rich in potash is locally sourced from Tafo, Eastern region of Ghana. This is mixed with natural ingredients in a saponification process to form cocoa soft soap. This exceptional recipe is based on natural Cocoa by products made in exclusive partnership with the Cocoa Research Institute Ghana.
