Here’s the latest member of the Black Rafter artisan family….African Black Soap. What a luxury soap, feels just like cream when you lather up. This soap base is imported from Ghana, with the addition of Shea Butter, and I like to add a little Pink Grapefruit essential oil for a sweet fresh scent, a real winner!
In Ghana it is made secretly, but one thing is for sure, to know if it truly is African Black Soap, it’s actually brown, not black. It is made from the ashes of cocoa pods, shea tree bark, plaintain and palm tree leaves, with the addition of honey, vitamins A and E, and a high concentration of pure shea butter.
There are numerous properties to this pure soap that tout it’s ability to not only cleanse and moisturize, but improve some situations. Following is a list of some examples :
It naturally contains antioxidants to protect against the free radicals that damage skin.
It improves skin tone and texture (especially for pregnant ladies) and helps reduce spots caused by sun and age.
It softens razor bumps and irritated skin for men who shave every day.
People with skin conditions like eczema, acne, and psoriasis note immediate improvement, and with regular use get some relief from these conditions.
It’s a pretty pure product, my customers are loving it, and at this point it’s a safe bet to pick up a couple!
