How to tell if your African Black soap is real.
🛑 STOP letting big brands fool you into thinking you are purchasing 💯 authentic African Black soap from them.
Authentic Black soap originated from west Africa and has been used for centuries to heal different skin issues. Black soap is known for clearing up acne, eczema, razor bumps, reduce dark spots, and eliminates blemishes. It's made from plantain skin, cocoa pods, palm tree leaves, shea tree bark, coconut oil and water. These ingredients are then roasted together for hours, giving the soap its brownish color.
Authentic African Black soap isn't hard or actually black like the color. Real African Black soap is a brownish color and soft enough to squeeze with your fingers. Fake Black soap is hard, usually black in color and smooth in texture. With authentic Black soap you can take a spoon or butter knife and cut your it with no difficulties. As time goes on from you using a bar or piece of African Black soap it gets extremely soft that you can mold it or play with it in your hands.
To save cost big brands started making their own version of Black soap to sell to consumers. Unfortunately their version has fillers that aren't good for your skin mixed with a very small amount of authentic Black soap.
The next time you're in the market to pick up some African Black soap make sure it's the real deal.
