Traditional imported African black soap. Ghanaians have been using black soap for centuries, because of the beneficial properties it has on the skin. The soap is made from burning cocoa pods and plantain leaves until they turn to ash. The Ghanaian women press the out palm leaves and coconut husks, expelling their oil. That oil is then mixed with the ashes and rain water and boiled. The black soap floats to the top and is scooped off and allowed to dry. The characteristic black color comes from the roasted plantains. The darker the soap, the longer the skins were roasted. This soap works wonders on various skin conditions, and is a great face bar, as well as a shampoo bar.
