tRADITIONAL aFRICAN bLACK sOAP is a multipurpose cleaner used on hair, skin face and intimate parts. Traditionally dark colored soap varies in tone from onyx, walnut, almond, to a light caramel color. African Black soap can be known as alata simena or analog soap. This plant based soap has been hand-crafted from Ghanian recipes that have been handed down for generations. Generally, the plantain skins, palm tree leaves, cocoa pods and shea tree bark are sun dried before being burned to ash. Next water, coconut oil, palm oil, and shea butter are added. Once the mixture is cooked until it solidifies, it is then hand stirred for at least 24 hours and left to cure for two weeks.

mILKs and yOGURTS contain lactic acid, which is an alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) ingredient that helps remove dead skin cells and stimulates new cell growth. Milk is considered one of the best sources of vital nutrients for the skin. It is rich in calcium, vitamin A, D, B6, B12, biotin and protein that can help produce healthier, glowing, beautiful skin and hair.
Dark chocolate makes for a very effective antioxidant since it is rich in cocoa. The high cocoa content ensures that it is rich in flavonoids. Now, the function of flavonoids is to prevent skin damage, boost collagen production and boost cell health. The effect that we get to see directly on the skin is that it glows, looks fresh and even fine lines seem smoother.
Oats contain polysaccharides, hydrocolloids, and fats which work together to create a film over the skin and lock in moisture, making oats a powerful emollient. To put it simply, oats add hydration to dry skin, which can be beneficial for sensitive skin, because excessive dryness often leads to flaking, itching, and irritation if it gets out of hand.
Use daily to combat unpleasant skin conditions such as acne, psoriasis, skin rashes, sores, dryness and even oiliness. Leaves your skin soft and without stripping off your skin’s natural oils which may lead to premature aging.
Storage? My best suggested method for storing uRBAN wHIP sOAP bARS, is out in the open where air can circulate around the bar. This helps the bar to re-harden completely between uses, increasing the amount of uses you will get out of each bar
