Alaffia’s Authentic African Black Soap is likened to the home remedies of Togolese mamans. It’s made from a centuries-old recipe of handcrafted fair trade and certified organic unrefined, "raw" shea butter and Orangutan-safe West African palm oil, and enhanced with invigorating peppermint oil. Saponification is reached by adding potash (made from plantains and leaves) to the hot oils, ?and then cooking it for six hours. The last step is curing the soap in the sun for three weeks, resulting in a gentle and effective cleanser that clarifies and softens skin. Suitable for any skin type, even the most sensitive.
Face Cleanser: Gently massage over skin. Rinse clean and pat dry. Follow with the Alaffia face cream of your choice.
Body Wash: Apply generously, working into a rich lather. Rinse thoroughly.
