Alaffia Authentic Black Soap is an all-in-one liquid soap, ideal for face, shaving, shampooing, and as a general hand & body wash. Suitable for all skin & hair types and gentle enough for babies, our authentic black soap is made from a centuries-old recipe of handcrafted shea butter and indigenous West African palm kernel oil. Saponification is provided by adding ashes to the hot oils, then cooking the soap for six hours. The final step is to dry and cure the soap in the African sun for three weeks. The extensive cooking and curing process makes authentic African black soap mild and gentle, and a major reason for its great popularity in America.

Shea butter has been a staple of skin care in Africa for millennia. With our Certified Fair Trade Alaffia unrefined shea butter, you will be able to enjoy the highly beneficial replenishing properties that this raw ingredient has to offer. Receive the full moisturizing and protective benefits of its unique fatty acid profile and Vitamins A and E.

 

Authentic, Sustainable, Handcrafted
Shea Butter is the oil from the nuts of wild Shea trees (Vitellaria paradoxa - also known as Butyrospermum parkii in the cosmetic industry) scattered throughout the wooded savanna of West and Central Africa. Shea Butter has been used for centuries in Africa and is completely enmeshed within the history and culture of the West African savanna.

All Alaffia shea butter is handcrafted and unrefined. It does not go through any industrial extraction that involves the use of chemicals and high heat, which remove most of shea butter's beneficial properties. Unrefined natural shea butter has a slight nutty scent and ivory color as compared to the odorless and white refined shea butter.

You should know that most shea butter on the market in the United States is not fairly traded. Without fair trade, the women who gather shea nuts and hand craft this remarkable oil receive only a tiny fraction of the final price. Our Alaffia Shea Butter is not only the best you can buy, but it’s 100% fair trade certified by IMO.

Amazing
This is an amazing soap. We use it in the bathrooms and in the kitchen as a hand soap, in the shower as a body soap and both my wife and also I use it as a shaving cream. Since we tend to wash our hands frequently in our household, this soap doesn't tend to dry out your skin like most other soap products. Although it is gentle it is also a very good soap with a good lather.
