ABOUT BLACK SOAP Oct 5, 2009 | By Rose Kivi, livestrong.com

 

Black Soap, also called alata samina or anago samina, is a traditional handcrafted West African Soap. The soap contains roasted plantain skins, bark from the silk cotton tree water, according to the Journal of African Society. Black soap is used by West Africans to cleanse the body and hair. Due to international exportation, black soap is a source of income for the West African villagers who make it. The soap is sold internationally on the Internet, at health food stores and in specialty stores.

IDENTIFICATION - As the name suggests, black soap is dark brown to black in color. Black soap gets its dark color from the main ingredient---roasted plantain skins. The longer the plantain skins are roasted, the darker the final color of the soap.

ORIGINS - Black soap is hand made in West Africa---predominately Ghana and Nigeria. The exact recipe for the soap varies according to the tribe who makes it. Family members orally pass down black soap recipes to the next generations. Variations of the recipes include the addition of cocoa pods or palm oil to give the soap a smoother texture. Some recipes do not include silk cotton tree bark.

PROCESS - The process for making black soap is lengthy and tedious. First, plantain skins are spread out to dry in the heat of the sun. After the plantain skins are dried, they are roasted in an open fire inside of a clay oven. The dried and roasted plantain skins are ground into a fine ash and mixed with ground up bark from the silk cotton tree. The plantain ash and ground bark are mixed with water and cooked in a pot over a fire, while it is stirred constantly, until the mixture thickens. Once the thick mixture cools enough to touch, it is shaped into balls and set aside to completely harden into a ball of soap.

FEATURES - Black soap is completely natural and lye free, making it an ideal personal hygiene product for heath conscious consumers. Info-Ghana describes black soap as "the only soap in the world that does not require lye, but lathers more than any other soap."

EFFECTS - African black soap is rich in vitamins A and E; both nourish and soothe the skin. The soap is gentle enough for sensitive skin and is recommended as an all around skin treatment soap. Besides being used as a cleanser, in West Africa the soap is used to treat acne, rashes, skin discolorations and dry skin. The soap can be used as a shampoo for normal cleansing or to treat dandruff.

Where have you been all my life!
By 
November 29, 2012 at 3:38 PM Hello My name is Michael and I have been using the Shea Butter Hut products for at least six months now. I have had really good results with it; black soap really cleanses my oily skin and leaves it feeling so clean and smooth. I have to tell you I have had a problem with eczema for a while and since using the Dead Sea Mineral Mud I have not had one problem with eczema. Isn’t that amazing you can have a problem for years and try so many different products and Bam all at once you get the right thing and your problem is gone. A lady was talking to me one evening and placed her hand on my face and said “wow your skin is so nice looking” now you know I’m sticking with these program lol. Where have you all been all my life?

Beautiful Hair
By 
I purchased this product about a week and a half ago. I could tell a difference in my hair with the first use. My hair is gray and this product made it shine with silver highlights. It is more manageable and has more body. Usually I wash my hair every other day. I have gone three days with this product and it still looked great. I am using this product head to toe and LOVING IT.

My wife first bought guy this product at a market on Edisto. At the time you told her "don't let you husband use it, or he'll love and you'll never see it again." Short answer: I did and now we have to buy two bottles at a time. Only thing I use. Prompt service as well. Buy it, but beware: you'll get hook !

I love the liquid black soap. I have used the solid black soap in the past, but liquid is so much better. It really cleans my skin thoroughly like nothing I ever used before.
