African Black Soap
This is a great product for both hair + body. Imported from a Fair Trade Village in Ghana that supports both woman and children. Our African Black Soap comes in small to large chunks, which can be shaped into bars if preferred (see below).
how to use: simply take a small piece of soap, mix in your hand or on a washcloth with water, and bathe as desired. African Black Soap lathers extremely well, so a small amount lasts a very long time.
ingredients: Sodium Shea Butterate, Sodium Cocoate, Sodium Palm Kernelate, Coconut Carbon
how to form this product into bars:
- Grate the entire batch of African black soap. The soap should be dry before attempting to grate. Grating wet soap can lead to a mess. If you do not have a cheese grater, try shaving the soap with a sharp knife. The smaller or thinner the pieces of soap, the easier it is to rebatch.
- Fill a sauce pan with water and bring to a boil.
- Add the soap shavings into a boil-safe bag and seal tightly. Place the bag in the boiling water and leave for 20 minutes or until the soap is melted.
- Empty the melted soap into a soap mold. Leave the soap in the mold for approximately three days. If you do not have a soap mold, let the melted soap cool until it is comfortable to touch, then mold with your hands.
