Alaffia's Extra Rich Authentic African Black Soap contains additional fair trade shea butter for a skin cleansing & moisturizing experience that is silky smooth. In West Africa, black soap is known by its Yoruba name, Osse Dudu. "Dudu" means the color black, which comes from extensive "cooking" of the soap to the point of charcoal. Many cultures in West Africa use charcoal to detoxify & purify the skin.

Suggested Use

Use: Pump small amount into hand, lather & apply to body with water for gentle cleansing. Suitable as a facial cleanser, body wash, shampoo, hand soap, and shaving soap.

太乾淨 too clean

Posted by 5268184244906856197 on May 03, 2017 | Verified Purchase

因為沒有油的成份,洗完十分乾,比較難起泡,就好似洗去你所有的油份一般。 without any essential oil ingredients, it is very dry after using, like it strips away all your oil.

Thanks for your feedback!

Good but not amazing

Posted by 4951465440135435721 on Jan 02, 2017 | Verified Purchase

It was nice for my legs as i have eczema. It irritated my hands when i applied it to my body as i have a rash on my hand that never goes away. Also will irritate cuts if you have any. Tried it on my face but didnt like the super stripped feeling and this will make your eyes sting so be careful! Aside from the negatives im happy this at least didnt irritate the ezcema on my legs.

Thanks for your feedback!

heavy texture

A little dry for my hands and the texture is thick, cant rub into hands all products. My husband likes it and sometimes uses it for shaving

Thanks for your feedback!

Thick and creamy

Posted by Reviewer1998842 on Sep 14, 2016 | Verified Purchase

It is thick and creamy but doesnt't lather very much. It is ok for the body, but doesn't feel good on the hair. I don't like the smell of it. It is unscented but the ingredients has some scent to them ofcourse. It's a bit smoky, like inscense. I like that it has a pump, but I couldn't get all of it out with the pump 'cause it is to short. It was very difficult to get the rest out of the bottle, and it was quite a lot left.
