True African Black soap is not black. It is a marbled natural looking brown color. The smell of unrefined palm oils and shea butter is a bit nutty and organic.
Plantain skins are dried to precise texture in the hot African sun. The skins are then roasted in a clay oven to achieve a particular color, texture, and fragrance. This plantain skin base is carefully mixed with palm oil, palm kernel oil, and generous amounts of ivory shea butter. It is unscented, uncolored, and unrefined.
Our African Black soap is a traditionally manufactured Fair Trade item and imported from Ghana, West Africa. This particular type of black soap is lighter in color and soft to the touch. Soap may be crumbly and break apart easily.
