What is African Black Soap?
In West Africa, authentic black soap is known by its Yoruba name, Osse Dudu. "Dudu" means the color black, which comes from the extensive "cooking" of the soap to the point of charcoal. Many cultures in West Africa use charcoal to detoxify and purify the skin, and this is an integral aspect of our true African black soap.
Furthermore, Alaffia African 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 sun for three weeks.
The extensive cooking and curing process makes authentic African black soap mild and gentle, and is the major reason for its great popularity rise in America. The second important reason is this soap's versatility. In Togo, Alaffia African Black Soap is an "all in one" option for cleaning, and is ideal for faces and babies, shaving, shampooing, and as a general hand & body wash. Scented with invigorating peppermint essential oil.
Alaffia was founded with the moral objective of alleviating poverty in West Africa. We do this through fair trade of our base ingredients and our Alaffia community empowerment projects, such as bicycles for education. Since 2005, we have distributed 4,000 used bicycles to disadvantaged students in our Togolese communities, encouraging girls to stay and succeed in school.
