The Benefits of Using African Black Soap

One increasingly popular choice for natural hair care today is African black soap. This all natural product works wonders and provides a wide range of benefits. Once you see what it is, and the advantages that it brings to the table, you'll certainly want to consider giving it a try as well and making a switch from your current products.

African black soap is an all-natural cleanser originating from countries such as Nigeria and Ghana. It includes ingredients such as Shea butter, plantain peels, and cocoa and palm oils, and it never includes unnatural components such as dyes or harmful chemicals. African black soap is rich in vitamins, antioxidants and minerals, including vitamin A, vitamin E, and iron.

While it is traditionally sold in large blocks, today, African black soap is also made into healthy, natural shampoos and hair care products. It will help impart your hair with a beautiful, natural, fresh and wondrous clean and glow. You'll be able to prevent issues such as common breakouts or oily skin, as well as eczema, psoriasis, dandruff and numerous other skin conditions, and you'll even gain added bonuses such as increased natural UV protection. Of course, it's not just about what African black soap provides. It's also about what it avoids, which in turn offers its own wonderful set of benefits and
advantages. African black soap never contains sodium lauryl sulfate (SLS), a chemical which has been proven time and again to be harmful and carry a number of serious health consequences. SLS is used in thousands of cosmetic products, but it's also used in products such as industrial cleaners. That doesn't sound like something which is healthy and natural for your hair and skin, does it? Of course not, and there's a huge spectrum of legitimate research out there which shows just how problematic this ingredient can be. The consequences could include minor irritation of your skin or eyes, to much more serious issues such as organ toxicity, neurotoxicity, endocrine and reproductive problems, and an increased risk of cancer.

If you're ready to try something new and potentially unlock a wonderful secret to happy, healthy and natural hair, then check out African black soap and experience the benefits for yourself. Your hair will look and feel better, and you can be confident knowing that you're doing more to stay natural and avoid harmful chemicals.

  1. Yep, that's my shampoo right there. Melt it down and add oils and glycerin. Leave your hair super clean. Also works well as a body wash giving you that clean feeling that even Zest doesn't LOL

  2. I have really been contemplating using black soap as a shampoo on my natural hair for awhile but I had a porosity issue after using chagrin valley soap bars so I was a bit hesitant.
